UK based plus size fashion blogger AmandaApparel shares her top picks from the current collection at Studio 8, including dresses, capes, and more!
Until The Curve Fashion Festival, Studio 8 had not been on my radar. I'd heard of them once or twice, but had never really looked into their products. Once I had a look, I don't know what took me so long!
Note: I do wish their sizes extended past a 24, (we need more 26-32+ plus size lines, right ladies?!) but maybe this is something Studio 8 would consider in the future.
There are SO many pieces I would love to have! Here are my six favourite pieces from the current collection:
Tamara Check Tunic Dress
Now, y'all know I love a check/grid pattern. This monochrome mix is super cute! I love the sparkle as well. I would pair this with black tights, flats, and a long necklace.
I think this dress would make me feel very Mad Men. Just add an updo, pumps, and some winged eyeliner and we're in business!
Annie Tunic Dress
This is my favourite of the dresses I selected. I know you're probably thinking, "Amanda, that is just a plain black dress. Who cares?" But you know what, I care! I love a well constructed, simple black dress. Black is timeless and looks good 100% of the time. I can't get enough.
I don't think I've ever included a white garment in any brand crush, wish list, or anything! But here we are! There's something so elegantly simple about this top. It would look good with my black jeans, or blue jeans depending on how dressy I wanted to look.
Lynn Check Cape Coat
This. Cape. Coat. OMG! It was one of my absolute favourites on the runway at The Curve Fashion Festival. Studio 8 were selling it on the day at their retail stall, and I must have walked past it longingly at least a dozen times. I NEED it in my life, you guys! It would be fab for nearly any season on the UK! You could layer it over short sleeves, long sleeves, dresses, jeans, you name it! The possibilities are virtually endless!
Lucy Longline Cardigan
Apparently I really have a thing for this grey shade right now! I love a longline cardigan, but I surprisingly don't have one right now! Grey looks fantastic with any colour, but I'd likely pair it with something black. Possibly the Tamara dress up above! Oooh, that would be cute wouldn't it?
