So my first plan is to make sure that I have several pairs of either black jeans and or narrow leg trousers that are stretchy and comfortable. My very personal love of embellishment and bling comes into it’s own with a selection of pretty knits and tops. This is the time for glamour and sparkle.
I did go through a phase of always being hot, food and drink exacerbates hot flushes so I had a few miserable Christmas seasons in the past, thank goodness that’s behind me. Now I seem to feel the cold a lot. Oh well never mind. So to deal with potential overheating, think layers.
Relax and Sparkle
Now then, cold ladies first…
I love both of these, the look is relaxed and glamorous and I will be covered up where I need to be. There’s room for my waist to grow a bit over the festivities and nobody would know!
Loving the whole outfit however I particularly want you to look at the sparkly black cardigan by Elena Miro. This would be such a useful item to use over the festive season. With jeans and layered over dresses, it’s so pretty.
So now for all you hot women, look what I’ve found for you.
A lovely lace tunic by Elena Miro with deep arm holes with sleeves that taper to just below your elbow. This is very flattering and comfortable too. I just love the green and so appropriate for Christmas, however it does come in other colours if you prefer.
Marina Rinaldi’s long tunic style blouse is absolutely beautiful. Wear with Marina’s narrow leg bordeaux trousers for a truly lovely Christmas Day outfit.
Go for Glamour
Going out in the evening? Try these.
Kirsten Krog’s black fluid twin set with a dusting of twinkly sequins is a marvellous addition to your wardrobe – it can be useful for so many events. Light in weight to pack and take on a cruise too. This is in stock in size 28 and size 30. It’s perfect for a fuller figure. Check out the Kirsten Krog collection.
Do you know most plus size women have lovely shoulders and yet somehow we seem to forget about them? Try Tia’s off the shoulder tunic and see how many admiring glances you get.
The Perfect Dress
Where can I find the perfect dress for plus sizes? Well, we have it.
I absolutely love the fit of Marina Rinaldi’s black midi dress because I’m a pear shape. But you know what, I’ve seen apple shaped ladies try this on and it works just fine on them too. I also LOVE the V neck at the back. Designer dressing for plus sizes has never been so good. Shown here sleeveless but it does come with sleeves. With heels and a glittery clutch bag, you can go to the smartest restaurants and parties. It’s an essential dress for curvy girls.
As you all probably know I like to find clothes that work hard and can be dressed up or down. This dress looks fabulous with flat leather boots and a leather jacket thrown over you shoulders. I will also wear it with Elena Miro’s sparkly cardigan to create another look. Some of you will prefer to wear it with opaque tights and a flat ballet pump style shoe. This in stock as I write from size 18 to size 26. Audrey Hepburn will be proud of you.
Keep Cosy with Outerwear
Now let’s talk outerwear. For that after lunch walk you will need something warm and cosy.
This is a piece for me, soft, warm, sexy and on trend too. A faux sheepskin biker’s jacket. From the new look, Persona by Marina Rinaldi.
A wool cashmere mix poncho with a luxurious fur collar seems to me to be a must have item. Good news – it’s one size, Elena Miro are great for knitwear and this is a beauty.
This is a very pretty coat, just the thing for keeping warm and looking good. Open End are a very fashion forward brand making lovely clothes for plus size women.
For a more sophisticated evening cover up, I love this, I just love it. Got to have it. The perfect evening cover up. It’s pure drama, darling.
So I hope this has at least got you thinking?
Do pop in to one of our stores in London if you can. We are serving sherry to get you in the mood. Cups of tea or coffee are also available to pick you up off the floor, after a busy shopping day.
We would love to meet you.
