May signals the start of the season for those dressier occasions… Ascot, the races, summer weddings and this for most women and especially plus size women, where occasion wear is harder to come by, causes panic. But fear not! We have our eyes peeled for the best occasion wear pieces and will bring you our favourites as we find them!
Today’s hot tip is this beautiful blushing pink perfect dress from plus size fashion brand Studio 8, sister brand to Phase 8 that caters for women size 12 – 26.
This beautifully detailed dress lives up to the quality that we have come to expect from this gorgeous brand and this dress with full skirt and nipped in waist is perfect for summer occasions.
Although it has a wide shoulder strap, if you are looking for arm coverage, look for a fifties style waist length cardigan, so that it cuts just where the skirt begins. We would opt for a light colour such as cream or white but it would also work with other bold complimentary hues. A nude shoe (heel or pump) is the perfect footwear for this pretty perfect plus size dress. So take it for a twirl: Studio 8, Ellen Dress, £150
