I’m incredibly excited about plus size fashion this season! Admittedly it’s crept up on me pretty slowly; back when I wrote a little SS17 trend report for She Might Be I was really struggling to say anything kind about upcoming SS17 trends. However, the spring / summer collections are starting to actually roll out now and I’m enthused by how they’ve translated into actual garments.
So, as is tradition here on ikiwn.com, I’ve combed my fave affordable plus size brands of the moment to bring you my top picks for this season. Most are under £50 too!
Pink Distressed Denim Jacket | Circle Ring Cigarette Trousers | Blue Floral Dress | Frill Sleeve Shirt Dress | Nude Metallic Sole Trainers | Gold Mirror Sunglasses | Tiger Badge Clutch Bag | Double Hoop Earrings
In the Style Curve
Bell Sleeve Dress | Junarose Playsuit | Birkenstock Florida | Floral Trousers | Gingham Dress | Blue Striped Shirt | Frill Bardot Swimsuit (huge thank you to Amanda Apparel for the heads up on this one) | Leopard Waist Belt
New Look Curves
Red Floral Wrap Dress | Pink Pleather Jacket | Pink Tie Waist Trousers | Black Embroidered Bralet | Wide Fit Yellow Slingback Flats | Wide Fit Pink Metallic Cross Strap Mules | Pink Frill Midi Dress | Blue Frill Shoulder Top | Blue Floral Bag | Rose Gold Aviators | Arrow Drop Earrings | Black & Tortoiseshell Hoops
Same as last season, these picks were hard, but for very different reasons. I tend to only really properly browse over at New Look Curves when I’m doing these twice yearly edits, and every time love what they’re doing. Others, such as Missguided, just never do it for me and I wonder why I keep heading back to check.
Simply Be and BooHoo Plus are absolute solid favourites of mine and, so far, haven’t ever failed to deliver. The biggest surprise was In The Style Curve, who might be the ‘new kids on the block’ so to speak but they really have their aesthetic down… I especially can’t stop thinking about the sunglasses I picked out.
This list isn’t exhaustive, it just features my favourite pieces available at the time of writing. I’m still finding new things every day, which I usually tweet out as they are released; I watch those ‘new in’ sections like a hawk. Tell me, what are your must have picks for SS17? Is there anything you think I’ve missed? Let me know!
