Brand Watch: See Rose Go

Who is See Rose Go? And why is everyone talking about them?
It is actually hard to imagine six years ago when SLiNK started that plus size women didn’t have access to more than a handful of fashion brands. That anyone we asked actively believed that plus size women didn’t want to shop and didn’t care for well made and quality products that were also on trend. Fast forward six years and it is like a totally different industry. Plus size women have a voice, they have many more brands to choose from and designers are actively creating and seeking out plus size consumers.

See Rose Go is part of a new movement of independent plus size fashion retailers looking to hit the plus size market with quality, stylish items that fit. That means that they have really taken the time to pattern cut and learn about the plus size body and all its curves, the way weight distributes itself and the needs of women who are harder on their clothes than their straight sized counterparts.

The result is a well thought out and cohesive collection of plus size garments, modelled by plus size women that plus size people can relate to. It isn’t all about hour glass, six foot somethings but takes into account the reality of the diversity of plus size women.

There are six products currently on offer starting from $98 – which I know some will balk at – but remember, just like the mainstream market, plus size needs price points and levels too to help it grow and indie designers have much higher over heads and less economies of scale to balance their pricing on. Plus when a brand spends time meeting the needs of consumers rather than mass producing, the cost is always dearer.

The collection comes in a US size 14-24 and delivery starts from September 2nd.

So please support plus size indie brands and bag yourself some hot off the press style heaven! Good Luck SEE ROSE GO

But we digress, back to the products.

A classic white tunic shirt – perfect with track pants, leggings, jeans or bare legged is 96% cotton!!!

– Natural fabrics – in plus size!

This means it has breathability, so it will keep you cool. There is some great black piping detail that really shows the care and attention that has been put into this piece.

Easy to wear and classic, so it may cost a bit more but you can keep it a lifetime.

The layering vest comes in two colours – black and burgundy – with matching trousers if you want to make it into a chic two piece – perfect for work.

Layer it open over a t-shirt or shirt or wear it closed as a top.

This co-ord is great and we love the stitch detailing on the top and the leather style panel down the back. The design clearly shows a lot of though about contouring and shape.

The layering cardigan, wrinkle resistant and pleather, vegan friendly collar detail is one of those pieces you can just grab and layer over anything.

Can be dressed up or down, this cute kimono cardigan in an almost abstract camo print is the kind of thing we’d wear in the transitional period before coats and leather jackets are applicable. And once again – natural fabric – 80% wool. Win

It has pockets too! So it is definitely a winner.

Pretty sure this is our favourite piece. The statement vegan leather statement coat is amazing. And with detachable belt and re-enforced patch pockets, this stylish, sixties esque coat will leave you as a force to be reckoned with this season.

While it could be worn as outerwear in transitional weather, it would also look incredible as a longline work jacket with some gorgeous black trousers. Or as a dressy evening jacket. Why not add a faux fur collar for a little extra warmth and a splash of colour too.

Everyday leggings might be the lowest price point, but they are packing their fare share of style and are essentially the leggings of plus size dreams – in reality. The four way stretch back panel means they are super comfy and supportive while the vegan leather front means they are pretty darn sassy and stylish ensuring you can literally jazz up everyday basics with this super legging. With rose gold zip and hardware, once again See Rose Go are showing that each item is thoroughly thought through. We think we might need to add these leggings to our selection of beautiful basics pronto!

And finally the other stand out piece is the Go Plus Size Track Pant. These plus size trousers are cut with a high waist, so you feel secure, the track pant also features a side zip fastening, so the front is nice and flat and a lower zip fastening so you can have a vent or tampered ankle. The zip also ends before the hem line to allow for easy alterations – seriously how smart are the people at See Rose Go. They have literally thought of everything! The trouser features two stripes down the side of the leg for added style and sporty feel, but they also work as a flattering technique to draw the eye up and down the body making you appear taller – smart right! The track pant has had a bit of a reinvention and can definitely now be more than just casual wear. Add a sassy heel to these and a statement necklace and you have a party outfit.
