Autumn Plus Size Fashion 2017
I love everything about Autumn. Halloween, Parties, Foggy mornings and cosy nights in, no other season compares in my eyes. And, with a turn of the season comes new amazing looks in fashion. Plus size fashion is taking a great turn from what I’ve seen so far this year. High necks, very Victorian and dreamy patterns, what’s not to love? I’m really enjoying what sites like ASOS and Simply Be are bringing out, especially when it comes to stylish plus size party dresses. I have my eye on a few bold items which I’d love to introduce to my wardrobe on my next pay day…
This time 5 years ago, I would have really struggled to find a dress for a party that didn’t make me look like a sausage roll. But, now I’m swamped for choice. All of my favourite online plus size sites are outdoing themselves year on year with beautiful designs that are all size inclusive. I no longer find that I’m squeezing myself into a size 18 at Primark. I’m actually finding dresses and jumpsuits that flatter my figure and make me feel like Kim K.
I can’t wait to see where plus size fashion goes in the coming months. I’d love to see more sites become size inclusive with their ranges, something which has been getting on my nerves in the past few weeks. For example, I was so chuffed to hear about the new Barbie range with Missguided. The promo promised beautiful prints and styles in terms of clothing. However, when the range was released, the plus size section looked, well, kind of depressing. Three shirts and two joggers? Really? How is that inclusive? If anything, it’s an insult to assume that larger women only want to be seen in baggy clothes that hide their bodies. I want to flaunt my stuff? Please please PLEASE, brands, don’t pull this as we transition into Autumn and Winter. Embrace one of your largest demographics for once, you may be surprised at how well you do.
What are your thoughts on the emerging A/W fashion this year?
