Y is for… YOEK We have long been total Yoek devotees, not least because their pieces each season are not only on trend, packed with colour and print, but also because their quality is sec- ond to none! With easy-to-wear tunics, gorgeous kaftans and perfect holiday styles, Yoek is a great premium label that really knows how to cut for curves. With stock- ists all over the world, Yoek has been at the forefront for championing colour and print in the plus size arena for a long time. S/S’15 is packed full of global references, from the relaxed boho vibes of Ibiza, coming through in breezy beach dresses and peace and love emblems to the dramatic monochromatic Spanish vibes, shown through block colour and lace and frilled borders and graceful peplum silhouettes. Soft separates and gorgeous tunics (we often wear ours as dresses with leggings) the Yoek collection is a versatile range of mix and match pieces that will become season favourites, with 3 collections – main, Black Label and the new Miss Y – a sportier look with a sprinkle of sparkle and a dose of pop sugar for a younger market. The range cZonsists of chic baseball jackets, star and heart print tees, tie-dye shirts and short frilled skirts for an all American, varsity vibe. There really is a little something for everyone this season. | t: @yoekfashion

Z is for… Zumba Ready OK, so the link is tenuous, but this new label really will have you Zumba or any other kind of active activity ready too! Just Curves Active Apparel is a luxury activewear label for women size 14-28. Getting fantastic plus size activewear is still a really tricky task so we love to champion any new labels in this arena that we can. Currently raising funds for their collection via Kickstarter, the specially cut, figure-

flattering sports label wants to ensure that women feel great when they’re working out – gone are the days of leg warmers and sweat bands! Founder, Yolanda, a size 16 was fed up of not being able to find fashionable activewear for her body shape and so decided to create her own line! A collection of fashionable, figure-flattering pieces that combine the support of shapewear, the function of activewear, and the fun of street-wear. With ex- ceptional fit and quality fabric, Just Curves is chic, yet comfortable. You will be ready to conquer your fitness goals with confidence.

We can’t wait to get our hands on some Just Curves pieces so we can look sassy and sweaty at the same time. | t: @justcurvesshop
