Hi. I wondered what those of us size 16 (im 18-20)are wearing this autumn. I need inspiration as I'm stuck in Jeans and "floaty" tops. Feeling more daggy than daggy mcsadface!

Black jeans & a smart, white, long sleeved tshirt.
Not going to work so no need for smart stuff however it does look pretty good with boots & a bit of bling. Oh, and my curves too of course grin

Leggings, a wrap dress and long cardi with ankle boots. I love Autumn as I love my boots and feeling cosy.

Size 16 (sometimes 18!) here. Boden red fitted jersey dress, charcoal coloured ASOS leggings, DM Viola boots in burgundy all toppled off with a gap black leather biker (and an M&S cardie for warmth.)

Sounds nice, MrsLogic.Which Boden fitted dress, or is it from an earlier season.

What kind of Carey's can u get away without looking frumpy? Also any links to casual dresses

grey (forgiving) shift dress with black opaques and black moto boots

Gap 'washed black' real straight jeans, grey long vest (moss Copenhagen), lightweight black jumper (la reroute), blowfish lace up boots and a duster coat from next which actually resembles an out of shape duster these days, handmade silver rings and earrings.

Black NYDJ straight leg jeans, oversize silver cashmere jumper, black leather Nikes. I've had to put a gortex jacket on top though sad

Today I have a "regular outfit" that's clothes not from Plus collections. Jeans from M&s jumper and vest from house of Fraser. This means as soon as this afternoons school run is done I will be racing home to put my "floppys" on. smile

I'm not sure Polyhymnia as I bought a couple in the sale a few Christmases ago. They were doing the posh London location thing at the time: Pimlico, Belgravia etc. It's a long length (well, just past my knee) with a small flower print with a high scoop neck. I love it smile

MrsLogicFromViz Wed 19-Oct-16 08:58:13

It is the Pimlico! My Aspie brain is rather tragic at times. I type this whilst wearing a Boden Breton.

Sounds good, MrsL. Think I missed that one. I am very keen on the 'nothing from specialist Plus retailers' approach.

Denim shirt dress black tights and tan boots (size16)

Currently in pjs but I was wearing a navy Cos dress, opaques and boots. Denim jacket and oversized scarf when I went out for lunch.

I'm a size 14 and I've recently bought this:

I've also bought a couple of high tech scoop neck tops from uniqlo for extra layering. Will wear them with jeggings and either my DM boots or chelsea boots.

I'm eyeing this top up at the moment but I'm wondering if it's a bit pricey for what it is:

heat tech sorry, not high tech!

Pinkkahori Wed 19-Oct-16 18:32:04

I'm in Tesco dark grey skinnies and a black jumper I bought from Vila recently. I'm an 18 and this is a new look for me. I'm moving away from the bright tunic and leggings look. I used to love it but lately I have Bern craving a plainer, more fitted look.

poppym12 Wed 19-Oct-16 22:15:55

Black jersey trousers, grey tshirt, grey boxy cardigan and slipper boots. (Haven't left the house today so was tempted to just put clean pj's on after I'd showered but thought I'd make an effort grin).

My day off kit is jeans (slight slim fit boot cut) trainers, and plain round neck t-shirt, sometimes low, sometimes high, usually 3/4 sleeve for bingo wings.
I've recently started getting fitted-ish tops and well fitting bra and find I get a lot more compliments than in my old larger t-shirts/jumpers which I thought hid my size but just exaggerated everything!

M&S jeggings. Joules empire line tunic and M&S wedge boots.
