Introducing AW16 DP Curve, our exclusive plus size range available in sizes 18-28. From statement shirts to slinky lace dresses, we’ve designed the range from start to finish with curvier figures in mind. Read on for a few of our style tips and outfit ideas for nailing autumn/winter style.
What’s the best style of
dress and best dress
length for me?
Lace was a major influence on the AW16 catwalks, so we’ve got a range of lace dresses to skim your shape perfectly. Pinny dresses are the best way to layer up this season, plus you’ll never go wrong with a wrap dress thanks to its waist-defining, figure-enhancing cut. As for length, just above the knee is a winner for you, but if your legs are your best feature then don’t be afraid to show them off.
I need some workwear outfit
inspiration, please help!
Why not try a striking blouse tucked into a black skirt for an office-appropriate outfit that’s guaranteed to impress your colleagues? Stylish and form-flattering, what’s not to love? Just don’t forget the finishing touches, try a boxy tote bag and flattering, leg-lengthening heels.
This season’s T-bar shoes look super-sweet with a wrap dress. Court shoes, Mary Janes and shoe boots will also all look chic.
I’m used to wearing black, how
can I introduce some colour?
A floral print on black is a subtle way to start working a pop of colour into your wardrobe. Try a floral Bardot or floaty top teamed with plus-size jeans or a waist-enhancing and bust-flattering wrap dress.
What can I wear to work, and
then out for drinks afterwards?
A 2-in-1 pleated and lace dress is not only totally on trend at the moment, it’s flirty, feminine and easy to dress up once the working day is over. Just add some sky-high lace-up ankle shoe boots and a glitzy clutch and you’ve instantly transformed your day look ready for dinner, drinks or dancing. Alternatively a bright blouse has notice-me appeal for day or night.
If I only buy one item
this season, what should it be?
Jackets are enjoying their time in the style spotlight, everything from bombers and printed trophy jackets to faux leather bikers and furry hooded parkas. Snap up a couple and you’ll have all bases covered.
