We’re falling hard for Whimsigirl’s Everyday Girl capsule wardrobe and with good reason. Dubbed as accessible luxury for the everyday girl, the capsule collection features ultra-comfy cotton-linen shirts and joggers that could double up as a casual work outfit and a cute number for a girls’ night out. And the best part? Sizes go up to UK16. The pieces are available in four earthy colourways (we love terracotta and evergreen!).

Are you in that awkward “in between” size where you’re sitting on the edge of a UK 14 but also not curvy enough to be called plus size? We feel you – and so does, Sophia Hung, founder of local label Amber Loft. As a plus-size and petite figure herself, her interest to launch the label came about when she saw the gap in plus-size fashion for small-framed Asian women. Putting her fashion diploma to good use, she has since created a collection of stylish threads for work and play. We’re talking asymmetric colour block dresses to brunch-with-the-girlfriends chic toga dresses.
