Pack away your plain tees and break out the bold motifs: Simply Be has your SS18 wardrobe sorted
If you’re stuck in a fashion rut and looking for some bold new pieces to covet, look no further than Simply Be. The brand’s SS18 collection packs a serious style punch, with florals, polka dots and ornate embellishment leading the way. Designed for sizes 12-32, you’ll be able to get your fashion fix in time for holiday season and celebrate your curves.
First up, florals. Not exactly ground-breaking for spring, right? But Simply Be has put a fresh spin on botanicals, with embroidery and embellishment creating textured prints and elaborate layers. And you can’t go wrong with a matching co-ord right now. ‘Exude easy elegance with an embellished co-ord look. The blush tone is particularly great for going from day to night,’ reveals our in-house Curve columnist, Hayley Hasselhoff.
Florals not your thing? Opt for one of the season’s other big print trends, instead: polka dots are in the sartorial spotlight, while gingham continues to be the print of choice with the street-style set. And don’t worry about how to make bold patterns work for you – no matter what your print(s) of choice, pairing them with your existing wardrobe is easier than you think. Just figure out the primary colour palette in your wardrobe and then choose a design that will compliment that palette. Don’t be afraid to pair your prints with bold, vibrant colours or clash statement pieces together for a super-confident look, either. Fashion favours the bold this season.
In addition to Hayley’s edit in our June issue (out now), we’ve pulled together 7 of our top printed picks from Simply Be. So whether you go for a head-to-toe floral number or add a splash of pattern (hello, pineapple-embossed bag) to your trusty denim, don’t miss out on these hot high-street hits.
