ASOS has today launched CURVE, a new plus size line to complement the range of clothing they offer women.
CURVE offers items in sizes 20 to 26 and designs are very stylish and trendy from what I have seen so far. This is definitely a great addition to the curvy shopping options we already have.
A number of lucky bloggers already have had the chance to try on some pieces from CURVE by ASOS and most have loved the pieces. Have a look… Young, Fat and Fabulous, Plus Size Tall, Big Girls Browse and also Ma Grande Taille.
With the tunic being this year’s must have for every wardrobe, finding just the right one is simple. But what does one do when the seasons and weather change? No one wants to cover up the perfect ensemble with a coat. That’s why sweater tunics offer the perfect solution. Sweater tunics provide needed warmth while keeping up with today’s hottest trend.
Which knit is just right?
Well that depends on the look desired. Thinner knits tend to have a nice drape. This is perfect for the tunic with a high waist or thin belt. The fabric moves beautifully adding grace and flow. Hand washing is usually recommended, however there are some knits that are machine washable. Thinner knits are great for layering making it perfect for chilly outings in milder climates.
Thicker bulky knits are best for outdoor activities in cooler climates. Wear with jeans or thicker opaque leggings. Footwear such as up to the knee boots finish the look. If more warmth is still needed, try wearing a long sleeved tee hidden underneath. With the added warmth anyone will be ready for hayrides, walks in the woods and any other outdoor activities coming up.
Putting together the perfect ensemble with thicker knits is a cinch and finding the perfect fit is just as easy when keeping a couple of things in mind. The first is that unless the knit is fairly thin, belts are not recommended. Belts with thicker knits create a chunky appearance with added weight. No one wants that. Lastly, thicker knit tunics look best when the fit is relaxed and straight shaped. Unless the wearer has the body of a runway model, snug and form fitting tunics can be a disaster.
The sweater tunic is comfortable, warm, trendy and stylish. Whether worn with jeans or tights, the sweater tunic is this year’s hottest fashion trend that can be worn from fall through winter.
