Fashion brand Karen Millen have launched a plus size collection. Karen Millen: The Curve Collection is now live and it is absolutely gorgeous. The specially designed collection goes from a size 18 to 24 and is the first time the smart and occasion wear brand has ventured into plus size. We are so excited that plus size Karen Millen is now officially a thing.
Featuring a strong collection of 71 products, the whole range feels very much like everything you would expect from Karen Millen, which is exactly what we want. The brand is known for their gorgeous smart/workwear and brilliant occasion looks and that is certainly served up here in this first drop.
So what are the best pieces to shop and what looks are we obsessing over? Easy peasy…
The thing we are loving about this collection is that Karen Millen Curve does not scrimp on fabric choices. There is even a real leather trench coat – which is seriously gorgeous. There are lots of amazing plus size staples, such as pencil skirts, faux fur jackets, suiting, tailored trousers and great everyday knitwear.
In terms of colour palette, it’s shot in seasonal appropriate but also timeless hues such as berry, camel, grey, cream and black ensuring that these are real investment buys that you can wear again and again. Although there are some great accent and pops of colour in there too. Silhouettes are form fitting and tailored, something we would expect from a Karen Millen aesthetic.
The collection is shot thoughtfully too, on a smaller curve and larger curve model so you can get a much better idea of products and also know that they are really designed for a fuller figure.
So these are the 7 pieces we want to shop right now…
The full leather trench coat is just THE DREAM. Leather coats or jackets are such a mega investment purchase as leather only gets better with age. This maroon colour is gorgeous and is quite a classic hue that won’t date. The coat also comes in red and is already selling out, so grab your one before they go. Honestly a leather trench coat is for life. Shop: Curve Leather Trench Coat at Karen Millen, was £599 now £419.30
Say it with us… “we all need faux fur”. A faux fur jacket is the perfect piece of outerwear to help you feel super smug, snug and like an absolute boss right now. This gorgeous champagne coloured jacket also comes in mink and is great both as party wear or for everyday. Shop: Curve Wide Collar Faux Fur Jacket, was £169 now £118.30
Made of 100% leather this black plus size pencil skirt is certainly an investment but the kind of fashion and statement that the industry has been crying out for. A leather pencil skirt will take you from boardroom to bar in one stylish step. Pair with a silky blouse or a gorgeous piece of knitwear, it’s just so versatile.
This is not a drill! This amazing plus size biker jacket comes in NAVY. It is unsurprising to many that getting a real leather jacket in plus size has been tricky, but in navy almost unheard of, so this is very much on our lust list. This jacket is also available in black. Shop: Curve Leather Signature Biker Jacket, was £329 now £230.30
With work-from-home still very much on the agenda if you’re looking for a winter switch up for your workwear then a knitted tunic with tights or leggings is a great smart but comfortable option. This knitted tunic did come in black but has already sold out, so grab this gorgeous camel hued tunic whilst you still can.
