Have you heard the news? Quiz Clothing have expanded into the plus size world! Their new curve collection currently consists of 77 items in sizes 18-28. The collection is full of beautiful colours, lots of beaut Bardot styles, and is SUPER affordable with garments ranging form £12.99 to £34.99. Of course we hope and expect that their sizes will soon extend to 32+ but it’s still a much greater effort than the usual size 24 cut off we often see from brands, so thanks for that, Quiz!
As you maaaaay have noticed over on Instagram, I am SUPER into this top! I posted more than a few teaser photos, but I couldn’t help it! My brilliant photographer Lianne captured SO many shots that I just had to share! I wanted to show the versatility of the top, so I styled it two different ways.
First, I paired the top with with leggings and pumps. This is a great daytime look for grabbing coffee with your pals, which is exactly what we did! I love the oversized fit of the top with super snug leggings. The pumps and shopper are nice and casual, but this look would also be great with a chic pair of flats and a more structured handbag.
Shop the cafe look:
Pink Jacket: New Look Curves, Size 22
Black leggings: Simply Be, Size 22, short length
Black knot pumps: Simply Be, Size 8E
Grid shopper: Old New Look. Similar at Asos
Next, I decided to swap leggings for bare legs. I love how the oxblood boots coordinate with the blush colour of the top, which I’ve styled here as a dress. That’s one of the perks of being 5 foot 4! If a top or tunic is long enough you can get away with wearing it as a dress! The only issue with bare legs is the batwing sleeves. I noticed that if I raise my arms quite high or put my clutch under my arm the dress became MUCH shorter, and an uncomfortable amount of thigh was showing, haha!
Shop the botanic look:
Oxblood ankle boots: Old Simply Be. Similar at Debenhams
Blush studded clutch: Old River Island. Similar at New Look
I’m really pleased with the overall sizing of this garment. Obviously it’s an oversized cut, but I’d say it runs true to size. I’m wearing a size 24, and my only gripe about sizing is that I wish the sleeves were a bit more snug. In my opinion, the colour is displayed accurately on the website. The material is super soft to the touch, and I like the weight of it. My only fear is that because it’s slinky it’ll be easy to catch and get pulls in the material. Only time will tell! Until then I’ll just keep washing it inside out on a delicate cycle.
