Every grown up woman needs a cache of fabulous essentials in her wardrobe for spring/summer and for autumn/winter.
Whether you are a woman over 40, 50, 60, or 70, you will need a handful of clever basics which elevate your seasonal purchases into a coherent wardrobe that is on-trend but also reflects your own sense of style and complements your body shape.
If your sizing is plus, you may feel that those wardrobe essentials are more elusive, and harder to track down. But here at SoSensational it is our mission to find fabulous wardrobe essentials for you, whatever size you wear.
We are here to discover those brands which deliver precisely what you want each season – clothes which are on-trend, beautifully made, cut to flatter and, it goes without saying, grown up.
A stand-out among those brands is Plus Size specialist Navabi, whose new A/W collection features all those wardrobe essentials in soft, toasty-warm merino wool, all in shapes and shades that you will yearn to wear forever.
Top of the list is an unstructured merino-wool blend jacket/cardi (1) from new luxe Plus Size collection, amber&VANILLA. It’s officially described as a cape, but in our view it is too deliciously flattering and covetable to merit the title “cape”. Draping softly, with two generous pockets to sink your chilled hands into, it is the essential autumn/winter cover up.
To wear under that jacket/cardi/cape, or as a genius stand-alone purchase is the definitive A/W essential, a merino-wool blend, V-neck longer length jumper (2) also by amber&VANILLA. This is a jumper to use as a key piece of new season layering.
Another key essential is a long line cardi (3) in a mix of merino-wool and premium quality cashmere again by amber&VANILLA. With silk chiffon ribbon on cuffs and down the front placket, and with set-in sleeves, this is the shape for you if you want to disguise weight carried above the waistline. If you are curvy on the hips, but covet this gorgeous cardi, wear it open with soft shoulder pads tucked under your bra straps. The addition of a skinny scarf in one of your favourite colours with ends hanging down will add some gorgeousness.
And while looking at how details in cut suit certain body shapes, Navabi have an A/W essential for those who suit a more structured shape jumper in an amber&VANILLA merino-wool blend long-line sweater (4).This has ¾ sleeves and deep hem edged in silk-chiffon ribbon for a very polished look.
Another absolute winter essential is a roll-neck or polo-neck sweater and Navabi’s essentials include a very versatile one (5) again by amber&VANILLA – in that merino-wool blend and in a longer length, so excellent for layering as well as keeping you cosily warm when the temperature dips.
Their (6) drop shoulder, merino-wool blend sweater with an inset silk-chiffon panel at the front, is the perfect shape if you have broad shoulders and a neat bust.
