I always enjoy London Fashion week, I love the buzz and the atmosphere, the fact that you can immerse yourself into the fashion world even if you aren't attending shows. Around the hub area of Brewer Street you see people from all walks of life partaking in the mania, people running to and from shows, or being snapped by a mob of street style photographers. But what I love most, is that everybody, can be exactly who they want to be and share their creativity through their clothes. Some decide to be as daring and different as possible, some stick to what is on trend and some, like myself choose to go classic and minimal with timeless pieces. As a plus size woman it can be incredibly difficult at times to find these style pieces available in our size. There is this idea that if you are plus size you should either hide yourself away or you should 'show off your curves', but what if you want to feel comfortable, and wear something that does the opposite of that? Sometimes I want a comfy baggy jumper as much as I want to wear a killer body con dress, quite honestly I want the same options that are available to my smaller friends, it really is that simple. Thankfully more and more brands are listening to plus size consumers and providing more varied options to help suit different needs, Lindex being one of them! Lindex recently extended their sizes up to UK 28 and as part of their new The Fall Fashion Heroes Campaign , they are sharing their belief that women of all sizes and shapes should feel included and to be able to shop from all areas of their stores. The gorgeous Candice Huffine and Ashley Graham are the faces of the new campaign alongside three other incredibly beautiful models. The campaign centres around autumn’s 5 wardrobe heroes: the balloon sleeve sweater, the trumpet sleeve top, the knitted dress, the skinny cropped trousers and finally the statement jean. You can check out the full campaign here and be sure to have a look at the pieces available some of which I am wearing in this post.
