It might not seem like it in London but.. it’s Spring! With that in mind, let’s refresh your wardrobe by adding the latest fashion trends tailor-made just for you; for our fellow curvy babes. Read below for a curated edit of the season’s trends that will personally be dominating our own pear-shaped wardrobes in spring 2023!

1) Sheer everything

Sheer is one of the hottest fashion trends right now! Perfect for embracing nudity in a subtle and chic way, often its material offers stretch, using breathable transparent fabrics such as mesh to mould gently across your curves, hugging you in all the right places.

2) Utility

The utility trend continues the Y2K theme from 2022. Luckily for us, some cargo pants are brilliant for accepting curves with adjustments like drawstrings, on either side. Right now, we’re really loving the variety available with all kinds of baggy cuts, interesting pocket placements, elevated fabrics, and colours that go beyond olive and khaki.

3) Fringing

Great at creating stylish boho-chic or glamorous looks, fringe pieces are all about how you style them. Wear a fringe jacket to elevate your outfit, and have fun with fringe skirts opting for a flirty and playful look. Or try gorgeous statement piece dresses covered in full fringe details to make a memorable entrance.

4) Tailoring

Elevate everyday dressing with clean lines, beautiful materials, and classic suiting to be anything but boring. Pair your items with classic jeans, dresses and skirts for a dress up or down look. Consider hourglass shaped blazers for their beautiful sculptural silhouettes.

5) Colbat blue

This intense, deep blue shade goes well with any skin tone and style. The colour itself is the statement piece. Brilliant for those that want to carry on with the dopamine dressing trend, wear with neutrals, other shades of blue, as well as on its own.
