Over the years I have learned what particular styles, colours and fabrications look good on my body type, and which ones rarely flatter my shape.  This H&M mint eyelet skirt and peplum top break 2 of my “avoid at all costs” rules: 1. Stay away from satin, especially across my thighs, and 2. No skirt lengths below the bottom of my knee. I was so obsessed with the other trends in these pieces (mint, peplum and eyelet) that I had to try them on, even though I knew it was going to end in utter disappointment.  Shockingly, they didn’t look half bad.  What are some of your “do not buy” rules?
