Plus Size Black Maxi Skirt for £16

Hi Fashionistas,

This blog post is dedicated to one of our followers on twitter @Nikki_Ranger. Shout out to you lady!!!!

@Nikki_Ranger said she loves our Black Maxi Skirt because it is so versatile and can be styled in lots of different ways. We completely agree so we decided to do this post to show you a few of the ways you can wear it. @Nikki_Ranger said she would wear it with an oversize sweater and we think this one is perfect and it is on sale at £35. The gold chain detailing in the sweater adds a slight edge to the outfit whilst staying feminine.

This jacket is one of our favourites and you have made it a best-seller so it must be one of yours too. The print is amazingly vivid and it has been featured in the national press. Wearing this jacket with the skirt gives the outfit an on-trend urban feel. Add to that the fact that our tropical print bomber jacket £45.99 is made from a light weight fabric perfect for summer and you have got one cool outfit.

Well we all know that when it comes to the British summer we can’t count on the weather to be sunny all day. Often you need an umbrella or trench coat for short spells of rain. Our animal print trench coat fits the bill and looks great over this skirt; plus it is on sale for £39.99.

Or what about these? Dress this skirt up or down, it will soon become one of your favourite items. Here we have paired it with our confetti top £109.99 for a garden party, our golden goddess drape cardigan £29.99 for a day at the office and our lux t-shirt £14 for lunch with friends.

These are all great looks and the possibilities are endless. Let us know what you love about this skirt – Is it the price, it’s versatility or something else? How will you be wearing it?

Steal Her Style Kim Kardashian…Plus Size Denim

Dear Fashionistas,

we were asked by one of our customers to do features showing how you can recreate celebrity looks in plus size styles. We loved that idea and decided to kick off this new feature with Kim Kardashian who is famous for her curves.

MSSVG Kim K montage

 Kim recently showcased this double denim look while in Paris. This is a super easy look to wear. Kim is wearing a fitted denim shirt tucked into skinny 7/8 length jeans which stop just above her ankles. You can copy that look with our studded denim shirt here and slim fit 7/8 jeans here.  The shirt is fitted so will show off your waist and the jeans contain enough stretch to be comfortable while keeping the skinny look that Kim went for. You can finish this look with heels like Kim for a chic finish or with flats for a more laid back look.

You can also try leaving the shirt out like Kim did here for a less structured look.

Don’t forget you can save 25% off jeans  with coupon code jeans25. Just enter the code in your cart before going to the checkout. and you will save 25% all jeans you purchase.

So what do you think? Is this a look that you will be trying and if so how will you wear it?

With Love,

MS. SVG hunt Plus Size shorts for Summer!

Dear Fashionistas,

after a couple of false starts it seems like summer is really here. The sun is out and it is the perfect excuse to let your legs get sun-kissed. Shorts are a summer essential and here at Ms. SVG we have you covered from smart shorts you could wear to the office through to acid washed shorts that will transport to all the way to the 90′s.

Take these Junarose City Shorts £40 available in Black and Ivy Green.  These are perfect to wear to work during the summer months with our pleated top, £22, team with some heels and you are ready for cocktails straight from work.

MSSVG black shorts and pleated top

For the more relaxed holiday vibe try these, Junarose Stone wash shorts for £39.

nw snow wash shorts

Or these Acid Wash Shorts £48, which are a big hit in the office. They really bring back the 90′s feeling with the ripped detaling. They’re perfect for a Saturday BBQ or walking along the beach.

Junarose acid wash jeans shorts

Feeling a bit shy about getting your legs out? No problem why not try these Skinny capris £42. They are longer than average shorts but still allow you to show some skin. They would look perfect teamed with our Oversized T-shirt £25.

MSSVG Capri and top

All of these items are available in UK sizes 14-26.

So we are big fans of shorts but what about you? Will you be wearing any of these on holiday or to work?

Slogan T-shirts and Body Positivity from Plus Size Brand Zizzi

Dear Fashionistas,

summer is nearly here and as the weather gets warmer we come out of hibernation and peal off those extra layers. Well Zizzi, a new clothing brand that we carry, has the ideal T-Shirts for summer. Yep, we love a slogan T-Shirt here at Ms. SVG and these ones are all about body positivity.

The office favourite is this one, the Zizzi “We Love Curves” T-Shirt. Ms. SVG is all about women loving their bodies and this T-shirt is everything!!

 

But we also love these two:

The Fashion Freestyling T-Shirt is about accepting no rules in fashion. Fashion is about freedom and creativity and this T-shirt says all of that. Work a fashionable hashtag into your life #WhoSaysYouCan’t.

This one is inspired by the words of Denise Bidot and we concur completely – there is no wrong way to be a woman.

But having said all of this to get to know the brand better and understand the message behind these T-shirts check out the video below where plus size model and face of Zizzi, Denise Bidot explains the accept no rules in fashion philosophy.


 

Inspiring right?

So what are you waiting for fashionistas? Embrace fashion freedom and love your curves!

#EveryBodyIsFlawless

Hey Fashionistas,

we are always playing music in the Ms. SVG office so when we heard that amazing blogger Gabifresh had joined with fellow bloggers  Nadia Aboulhosn and Tess Munster to remake a Beyonce video we had to hit play immediately. we loved the original and were anxious to see what they did with the remake. Well we were not disappointed. Amazing, gorgeous, fierce and sassy these ladies wowed us with the awesomeness. It is great to see plus size women being themselves and showing their bodies rather than coving up.

The media can make women insecure about the way they look and how they should feel but this video reminded us of how powerful we are as women. These three ladies have started a campaign called #everyBODYisflawless . Here is some what Gabifresh had to say about why she started the campaign

“ you don’t have to be a certain size to claim your flawlessness. Fat is not a flaw. This video is dedicated to the mainstream media, to the fashion industry, to internet bullies, and to anyone else who thinks it’s their right to try to make us feel less than because of their insecurities. #everyBODYisflawless”

Bravo Gabifresh!

If you want to watch the video and see what all the hype is about check it out below. Like the original song it has explicit lyrics and amazingly talented women.

Fashion Trends…..Sports Lux (Plus size)

Dear Fashionistas,

Sports Lux is a huge trend for Spring/Summer 14 and we are here to give you the information you need to wear it fabulously without breaking a sweat.

Sprts Lux is just what it says on the tin; a sporty look mixed with a little bit of luxury. Think drawstring waists, loose tracksuit bottoms, bomber jackets, racer back tops…finally a trend that allows us to wear gym type clothing without going to the gym. To make it truly sports lux we have to add the luxury bit in the form of beautiful fabrics worn with high heels or high top trainers. Definitely a more comfortable trend from fashion designers and one that every plus size fashionista should get into. If you think this trend is for you why not try some of the items below.

Junarose £60. The zip and elasticated cuffs and waist are firmly in the sports column the pattern of the fabric completes the trend

The zip and elasticated cuffs and waist are firmly in the sports column the pattern of the fabric completes the trend

 

Wear the tracksuit inspired top with the matching bottoms below. Buy the top here and the bottoms here

junarose tropical pants

These tracksuit bottom inspired pants can be worn with the corresponding bomber jacket for a head to toe look or a simple white racer back top for something more subtle.

You could also break the look up by wearing the top with a pair of jeans. These 7/8 length jeans would be perfect. They end just above the ankle so could be worn with strappy heels to really add the luxury to the trend or your favourite trainers to emphasise the sporty aspect.

Buy the jeans here

For an outfit with even more of a luxury angle it has to be this from Carmakoma.

Everything you need from the sports lux trend while still being uber pretty.

This outfit is gorgeous, a real MS. SVG favourite and something you could wear out for drinks with the girls or even to a wedding. Get the jacket here and the trousers here.

So will you be trying the Sports Lux trend and if so how will you wear it?
