Clear shapes, sumptuous materials, eye-catching black and white effects. These are the key elements that make up the latest plus size pattern collection from burda style magazine’s March 2013 issue. These styles borrow details from men’s fashions of the 20s and 30s, and cuts a good figure day or night.
This Pencil Skirt is a real work of art. The wrap-around effect and the small pleats subtly attract attention. At the back, leather edging embellishes a visibly stitched-on zipper.
This long Blouse in sheer chiffon is an inspiration, and indeed a temptation! The petersham ribbon over the darts and placket add a touch of sophistication.
Slip this Satin Tunic on and feel the soft fabric against your skin. Its low-cut neckline with elegant, black edging also makes it a real eye-catcher! The wide-cut shoulders form loose little sleeves which flatter the arms. The elasticated waist allows this style to be fit easily to the individual figure.
A short Spencer Jacket and wide trousers always make an exciting yet classic combination. Whether you want to look more elegant in the daytime, or in the evening. The fitted Spencer is a classic, with its deep lapels and decorative buttons. We love them with these Smoking Trousers that are a little dressed up with strips of sequins down the side and contrasting decorative buttons.
This is a simple Blouse which has huge impact. Several narrow bands in contrasting black look as if they are seams. This creates a sense of proportion and is figure-flattering. Small gussets at the hem let the blouse swirl around wider hips.
Here we have the lovely Crepe Maxi-Dress. The Venus de Milo wore the fabric draped around her hips – on her modern-day successor it flows around the whole body, without any darts, and also looks beautiful. Gemstones on the neckline decorate this sensuous maxi-dress, making it most suitable for evening wear.
This white, hip-length Blazer with black lining and lapels make an amazing first impression. The large, black buttons are further accents on this beautiful double-breasted jacket. It looks dapper paired with these Marlene Trousers. These loosely draped trousers in soft crepe satin are the ideal accompaniment to your freshest blazer.
