Our 'Curve' Columnist Callie Thorpe has scanned the River Island rails and chosen her 10 picks of the season’s hottest looks, all in sizes 18-24.
River Island’s latest drop of its Plus range has just arrived in stores, and our columnist Callie Thorpe has pulled together her favourite pieces, all in sizes 18-24.
With 75 pieces from core wardrobe basics such as the Molly stretch skinny jean and the khaki bomber jacket, to catwalk-inspired directional style – those with bold tastebuds will love the floral printed shirt – this season’s offering will suit all tastes, shapes and styles.
There’s chic workwear too, check out the simple black waistcoat and the black leather wrap skirt, and striking partywear – we’ll be wearing the black and green striped off-the-shoulder top with leather trousers all season. The collection is fully loaded with romantic gothic touches too, with plenty of dark florals, lace and textures.
If athleisure is more your vibe, fear not for there’s plenty of lovely tees, shorts and loungewear too.
Since it’s debut in early March of this year, RI Plus offers pieces from all areas of the brand’s collection. As you may recall Candice Huffine – who was the first plus-size model to appear in the Pirelli calendar – fronted the first ever campaign for the launch collection. Since then, RI plus has gone from strength to strength, and has built a great reputation for on-trend wares.
