Over the past decade or so, plus size fashion has come on in leaps and bounds. With many big high street shops now stocking their own plus size ranges, often featuring many of their styles up to a size 26, the British fashion world is happily becoming more and more inclusive.
Gone are the days when plus size fashions were vastly limited in both style and cut – now you can find stylish ensembles no matter what your personal style or taste.
For example, if you like to dress modestly and elegantly with an air of sophistication, there are plenty of options available to you on the UK high street. In New Look’s Inspire range of plus size clothes, you can find flattering feminine blouses, summery maxi-length skirts, and stylish knitwear perfect for layering. Team with a pair of this season’s take on gladiator sandals and a fashionable (not to mention practical) oversized bag, and you’re sorted.
For women with a taste for all things bright, bold and colourful, the high street has plenty to cater to your needs. Pick up a magenta jewel tone dress that really pops from the plus size range at Next, and combine with a contrasting chunky beaded necklace from Accessorize and bold heels like Office’s flight of fancy purple suede courts. You’ll certainly stand out from the crowd, and bring a little summer colour with you wherever you go.
If you like to showcase your curves with draping dresses and tasteful tailoring, look no further than Curve. Why not grab yourself one of their Jersey Pleat Bust dresses, and show it off with a pair of killer heels and a pretty clutch? Or, for a smart work look, team their wide leg trousers with a classic shirt and be the trendsetter of the office.
No matter what your personal style is, it doesn’t have to be limited by stuffy plus size ranges any more. The UK high street has realised the market it’s been missing out on, and is falling over itself to capitalise on the potential in offering plus size ranges. Go forth and shop – Britain’s got you covered.
