A few months ago I got a gorgeous floral embroidered biker jacket from SimplyBe, and as I fell truly fell in love with it I thought I would share some of my autumn styling picks from them too. Simply Be are a place I know I can go to, shop and not feel horrible about myself. I’m a plus size gal so when I go to most high street stores, or buy online, I always come away feeling frumpy or just plain ol ‘too fat for fashion’. However, when I pick up pieces from Simply Be I feel my age and not frumpy, I feel flattered in the clothing and not fat. I generally feel like I am not an afterthought. Most plus size lines are just larger versions of their general lines, whereas Simply Be is catered towards plus size women so the clothes are meant to flatter a curvier figure yet still be fashion forward.
The A/W range at Simply Be is SLAYIN’ RIGHT NOW. I mean can we just look at those perfectly formed wide foot boots and the skinnies with stars on?! My pick of the A/W lines are super versatile too, so not only can you shove them all together for an outfit but also mix and match them with your wardrobe staples too.
I shall be picking up the Hungover jumper on my next payday because seriously this jumper was made for me (and my gin habit) – plus it’s only £22.00. Another bargain is the Luna Sequin Star Slim Jeans which are £35.00 which is a pretty standard jean price, however, these are styled up with stars and sequins. The jeans paired with the silver Metallic Chelsea Boots are just a match made in heaven, am I right? I just love how fun and fashion-forward my picks are and how they make me look at them as clothes and not plus size clothes – which let’s be honest can sometimes come off as frumpy or cover all.
What are your favourite clothing trends for A/W?
