Plus Size Fashion by TOWIES Gemma

TOWIE's Gemma Collins proved that fuller-figured women can be fashionable and fabulous during her spot on todays episode of ITV's This Morning.

Gemma weight has yo-yo'd up and down over her time in the spotlight, but she currently looks and feels fabulous at a size 18 and wanted to show that plus sized women can be as fashionable and fabulous as slimmer girls.

Gemma is currently designing her own clothing range for fuller figures and is looking for a plus size girl next door to model the range.

If you missed the episode, you can catch it again on ITV's website

Plus Sizes Nautical Fashion

Summer is well and truly on its way and it'll soon be time once again to wear my favourite nautical style.

The nautical trend is something that never goes out of date and every year I add a few new pieces to my timeless nautical capsule of plus size clothes.

Its such an easy style to create and wear and suits all figures. Create your own nautical wardrobe with navy leggings, skinny or cropped jeans, white linen trousers, a combination of blue, red and white striped tops, a good quality white or navy cardigan or blazer plus cork wedges, white pumps and lots of nautical inspired accessories.

Here are a few of my favourite new nautical pieces on the market right now.
I love this Joanna Hope chain print tunic available at Fashion World. Heavyweight jersey fabric with gold link trim to split shoulder detail and wide 3/4 length sleeves. This is perfect for the nautical trend and would look great worn with white linen trousers and navy wedge shoes.
Yours Clothing have this gorgeous nautical style Navy and white striped asymmetric top with bow back and drop pockets. Its available in sizes 16-32 and a bargain at only £19.50. Team it with navy or white leggings and pumps for a cool and trendy summer outfit.

Also from Yours Clothing is this gorgeous thin stripe t-shirt with ribbon detail around the neckline which ties into a bow. The T-shirt sits just below the bottom and is part of our their nautical trend - Riviera range. Also available in blue and only £9.50.

Graduated striped maxi dress from Marks & Spencer Pretty and feminine with a rear tie fastening to define your figure. A fabulous, flattering style and perfect for the nautical look. Available up to a size 22. £49.50.

Samya at Evans - Plus size vintage inspired pieces

Evans is one of my favourite plus size shops with a huge range of clothes for every occassion, but they dont just stock their own brand. They also have ranges from great plus size designers including Curvy Kate, Lovedrobe, Praslin and Samya.

I particularly love the Samya collections as many of their pieces have a real vintage look about them. I love the vintage style but it is virtually impossible to find genuine plus size vintage clothes so look-a-likes is the next best thing and Samya have some really gorgeous pieces to pull off the vintage look perfectly.

This ditsy floral print Samya dress reminds me of a vintage 1940's tea dress and is perfecct for flattering plus size figure. Complete the forties look by teaming it with high heel wedge shoes, a clutch bag and pearl necklace 

This gorgeous Samya cream lace top has a real vintage, boho/hippy chick look. Its nice and long so could be worn alone with bare legs or a pair of leggings or skinny jeans, teamed with some chunky brown sandals its perfect for pulling off a seventies style.

This ditsy navy Polka Dot frill trim dress with V neckline is perfect for pulling off a plus size vintage 1950's style. It would look great with kitten heels and a wide belt to show off the waistline for a real fifties look.

If you like you 1980's style, then you will love this Samya blue pleat and lace top. It has a real retro look about it (think Dallas and Dynasty), team it with tight bottoms or a mini skirt and spiky stilettos to complete the look.
