If there’s one trend you’ll see season after season, one purchase you’ll wear again and again, it has to be the printed tee! They’re just so versatile. Forget the fact that you can get so many different styles – from legs to cartoon characters, graphic prints to kooky characters – or the vast array of colours you’ll have to choose from. And think instead about all the places you can wear them, the looks you can create…
Never say never!
Wear them to work under a blazer, out on a night with a glitzy skirt or on the weekend with a trusty pair of jeans – there’s just no stopping you! And the occasions you can think of right now, off the top of your head, well they’ll never compare to the actual opportunities you’ll have to wear a printed tee once you’ve got it in your wardrobe!
The latest looks!
Let’s start with Parisian, because we’re just loving it right now. Go for sophisticated prints, like our Lace Print Top. It’s easy luxe, unstated glamour that won’t move past casual unless you want it to. And don’t forget our Longline Jersey Top. This one sits on the fence, bordering the season’s must-have Parisian style but hinting towards the ever-fashionable Rock-chic too! Which leads us nicely onto our Wing Print T-Shirt – the ultimate rock ‘n roller tee! Outdone only by the cartoon king in this Mickey Print Top – the Cute and Quirky take on this astoundingly versatile trend!
Right, that’s enough of the bad weather. It’s time to start thinking about warmer climes, whether that’s abroad or right here at home, where they keep promising that a cold Winter means a hot Summer (fingers crossed)! And what’s the first thing you need when the weather starts to turn? Well a gorgeous Spring/Summer Wardrobe of course…
New this season!
The Spring/Summer catwalks are done and dusted, leaving you to translate all the gorgeous, must-have trends into a personal style that works in the real world. So, what’s hot this season and what will you be wearing in the months to come? Well, we’ve got a pretty good idea! So we’ve picked out 3 of the most wearable trends to strut their way down the Spring/Summer catwalks – plus, we’re giving you an exclusive preview of next season’s Simply Be collection… 3 fab pieces, one for each trend!
Earlier this week, we told you about V Magazine’s Size Issue, released today. Well it’s whipped up a press frenzy. Just this morning Lorraine Kelly was talking about it on GMTV and tonight, Simply Be Designer Anna Scholz will be interviewed on the Channel 5 News!
From plus-size model to plus-size designer
Anna Scholz was one of Europe’s top plus-size models before moving on to realise her dream to design gorgeous, luxury looks for women with a fuller figure. So she’s the perfect person to talk to about the plus-size fashion. And with the release of V Magazine’s Size Issue so imminent, it’s no surprise that Channel 5 News have asked Anna to give her take on it.
See what she has to say
So want to see the interview for yourself? Great! Just tune in to Channel 5 tonight at 5pm or 6:30pm. She’ll be spilling the beans on everything plus-size, so it’s definitely well worth watching!
We’ve been following the latest plus size fashion news and this month something very exciting is happening. V Magazine is printing a gorgeous plus-size photo shoot as part of their size issue…
Big is beautiful
We love it when plus size girls show off their curve-confidence, so when V Magazine announced their latest shoot, we just had to take a look! And we weren’t disappointed. The girls look absolutely gorgeous – and they’re not hiding anything! It just goes to show you can look fabulous no matter what your size!
A sneaky peak…
We’ve got a sneaky peak of V Magazine’s plus-size model shoot for you! Just pop to the bottom of our blog and press play, you soon see how absolutely stunning the girls looked!
And if the video isn’t enough, surf on over to models.com where you can get a sneaky peak of what’s to come in V Magaine’s size issue!
Oh, one more thing…
V Magazine is an American fashion mag, but it is available in the UK. So if you want a copy, pop down to your local news agents now and order one in!
Cheryl Cole is definitely the lady of the moment! Her first solo single hit number 1 with record sales and her fashion sense is always spot on. So who better to choose for our first ‘steal her style’ feature, than this pop princess!
We’ve chosen one of her classic casual chic looks. A simple, leather jacket undone, over a statement, animal print top! She’s definitely got understated glamour down to a T! The look is finished with slim-fit black jeans, ankle boots and an oversized bag.
So, how do you do it without the celebrity price tag? Easy! Start with our Printed Jersey Top – a snip at just ￡30. Then layer on Cheryl’s super-cool look with this season’s hottest investment piece – the leather biker jacket. Our chocolate brown number is dead ringer for the Girls Aloud star’s – and you can bet it’s a good deal cheaper! Now add our Lola Slim Leg Jeans, Ravel Dalton Ankle Boot and Juno Twin Handled Grab Bag – and you’ve got Cheryl’s style sorted!
