I’m a big fan of New Look, I always seem to be able to find several things in there that I like. I especially love their awesome shoe collection (especially the wide fit range!) I’m also really impressed that they have such a good plus size clothing range. One thing that really frustrated me when I was bigger a few years ago, was that plus size ranges weren’t very fashion forward. There seems to have been a huge improvement in the quality of the designs on the high street in just a few years. Whatever your body shape, New Look has such a great selection of fashion forward designs, you can’t go wrong! Here’s a couple of outfits I would go for, that would look great whatever your size:
All of the items above (apart from the accessories) are from the plus size collection, but similar styles can be found in the main stream collection as well.
I would wear the boyfriend jeans with the white t-shirt, statement necklace, jewelled flat sandals, bright blazer and bag for a smart summer day time outfit. I would wear the gorgeous floral maxi dress with the sandals and the biker style jacket for a more relaxed look.
Over the last few years I’ve been both plus size and very slim. Now I’m a nice in between size, and I really love my curves and like to show them off, however I don’t think any particular body shape is better than another. Embrace what you’ve got – whether that’s curvy, pear shape or more slim! As I’ve been reminded recently, a curvy shape can look much better in fitted designs, than being swamped by larger, baggier clothes. I love the nipped in waist of the maxi dress for flattering a curvy figure, and I always think that blazers look great on more curvy shapes too. If you are more curvy, don’t be afraid to flaunt it!
What do you think about plus size fashion collections? How do you dress to flatter you shape, whether that’s curvy or not?
