Plus Size Fashion Brands to Watch 2016

Plus Size Fashion Brands to Watch 2016

Yes I know we are 6 weeks into the year and it seems a bit late for me to be doing a ones to watch post, but a LOT has happened this past week that makes me SO glad I waited.

If you’ve been hoping for daring cuts, oversized garments, interesting textures and bold patterns like I have…guess what…hold on to your hats girls because it’s time to wave bye-bye to beige old Kansas and HELLO to the glittering city of Fashion Oz!

Beth Ditto

Okay, so you might have guessed if you follow me on Social Media just how much I LOVE Beth. Once upon a time, some utter dicks used to call me Beth’s twin to try and upset me. Little did they know, Beth was a huge inspiration for me and my love for her style, sass and don’t-give-a-fuck-ness just grew more. Now she’s released her own clothing range and it is nothing short of what you would expect from the icon. I feel like I am raiding her personal clothing stash looking at this collection, which is exactly how you want to feel when looking at a “celeb” range. This isn’t substance over style, this is a revolution.

It has a hefty price tag to go with it so if you’re looking for a bargain, avert your eyes!beth_ditto_plus_size_fashion_range_lottie_lamour_lame-silver_jumpsuit

River Island’s Plus Size Range

River Island have been one of my favourite high street stores that I have admired from afar due to their sizing. Some of their straight sized stuff (when done oversized) is okay for my size 20-22 frame but the majority of it is just a no go. So when they said that they were creating a plus size range earlier on last year, I nearly wept with excitement! RI have always been fashion forward, and with talk about this just becoming an extension of their straight sized range I was soooo excited to see what they cooked up. The first few items have started to drip through on social media and they have not disappointed!

No pricing as of yet, but with the launch taking place on 7th March, we are not too far away from seeing these gorgeous things in the flesh. Just look at that shirt dress… hubba hubba! In the meantime, keep your eye on the River Island Plus page HERE.


Yours Maternity Wear

We also saw the launch of some pretty cute plus size maternity wear from Yours Clothing this week. Not only is the price point pretty good for the range but there are some really sweet items in this release, along with some staple items we might take for granted when we’re not with child! I’m really impressed with how cheap this range is – one less thing to worry about when you are waiting on a little arrival.

Take a look at the below and let me know what you think!
