The 2014 Autumn/Winter collections are pouring into retail outlets at the moment and, whilst not quite ready to spend my £££, I am keeping my eyes open for things I like, especially the everyday wear that is so difficult to get in plus-sizes at good quality for a reasonable price.
With that as my brief, I’d recommend anyone with similar needs to head across to Poetry Fashion online who, season after season, produce, up to a UK size 22 (US20), a really well priced collection of good quality clothing.
I like their emphasis on natural fibres, the easy and forgiving styling and their price points which, for this quality of product, are pretty reasonable. The linen top above is one of my favourites from their latest range.
If you don’t know them, from their About page:
LAUNCHED IN 2005, POETRY OFFERS A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO DESIGN.
POETRY DESIGNS ARE FOR THE LONG TERM, PERFECT PIECES THAT SLOT INTO YOUR WARDROBE TO BUILD OUTFITS THAT WILL LAST FOR MANY SEASONS.
We prefer to work with natural fabrics like merino wool, pure linen and silk, better quality fabrics which have inherently interesting textures and create subtle marled colours.
Importantly our designers reference the key trends of each season, interpreting them in shapes and silhouettes that are created to fit and flatter but are current and contemporary in their expression …
Worth a look for plus-sizes and lovers of easy fit and style …
