Tales of tulle
Thumbing its nose at the concept that fuller figured women must stay away from pastels is this sheer Mary Katrantzou tulle cardigan. Whimsical and elegant, it is detailed with glitter flowers and pastel-pink trims. Layer it over a tonal camisole and team with a pencil skirt or cropped trousers.
Up to UK 20. Rs 82,755.
This Anupamaa Dayal creation caught our eye at the recent Wills India Fashion Week. The silk ensemble-Naina dhoti pants with a shirt and dupatta- sports a diamond ikkat print all over, but its placement, colour and dyeing technique varies in all three, creating a sense of drama. Tailored yet free flowing, this Indo-western design gives a flattering fit (customised for plus sizes). Rs 27,200.
A well-tailored jacket can be the perfect complement to any outfit. Streamlining the shoulders, nipping in the waist and camouflaging any unseemly bulges, it gives great coverage and shape. Try this red one from Curvy by D Muse, with a panelled V neckline and a dipped hemline, which will go great with a skater dress or a skirt in a darker hue. Up to 5XL. Rs 2,699.
If floor-grazers have been your go to look, then it’s time for a rethink. This pencil skirt with cluster embellishment from Asos Curve checks all the boxes for a chic look. With a high-rise waist and below-the knee hemline, it lengthens your torso and gives you an hourglass figure. Team with a crop top and heels for an evening out. From UK sizes 18-28. Rs 4,800.

TIP the scales on the wrong side of ‘large’ and you are advised to stick to black and invest in shapeless kaftans and maxis. However, with designers like Marc Jacobs and Mary Katrantzou expanding their size charts to 20, websites like the German navabi.us stocking designer wear from sizes 14 upwards, and rumours of singer Adele designing a plus-size line for Burberry, there are signs of fashionable change all around. Till we can get our hands on them, here’s our pick of some cool duds closer to home.
