IF the new season brings a feeling of dread when you realise you need to seek out a new range of outfits which look good on a 'real' woman, then look no further than Elvi in Mell Square, which has hundreds of stylish clothing ideas for curvy women in Solihull.
Elvi designs a comprehensive collection of contemporary feminine designs for women sized 16 and up.
Created specifically for the fuller-figured woman, Elvi offers fantastic value for money with excellent quality and choice.
The autumn/winter collection kicks off with the a brand new overhaul with nearly all clothing now available in up to size 28.
Key colour themes enriched with warm, earthy tones and vibrant russets and infused with light pastels.
The look is all about mixing and matching individual items to create a smart and coordinated look that you can accessorise with existing items.
We love this black and white collar jacket, £129, teamed with a wool waistcoat in black or brown from £59 to create a smart chic look.
For a more relaxed image, bold and striking cardigans look stylish worn with a plain short sleeved sweater, or a printed under garment such as the black and kingfisher blue fan print blouse, £69.
Rich, bold colours are another key trend on the autumn/winter catwalks, so update your wardrobe with a fabulous kingfisher blue jacket made from a luxurious boucle material, £119.
Alternatively, coats in vibrant fuchsia or earthy sage will brighten up any outfit on a cold winter's day.
