There are many things that plus size fashion is missing but the most prevalent for me is the lack of minimalist items. Its seems these days you can get a printed body con in any colour, a tee covered in butterflies and a colour blocked hanky hem but getting a smart plain white shirt or a simple, asymmetrical dress in one colour is damn near impossible. Honestly,I love a good print as much as the next gal, but there are times when I want nothing more to wear an all black ensemble, for me sometimes less really is more. I'm sure you all know how much love I have for a leather motto jacket, because well, I pretty much live in them all year round. They are perfect for a minimal outfit and help finish and add edge. This Elvi biker jacket is a size 22 and is slightly more cropped than some of others I own but the cropped really works with this kind of look.

The trend of wearing dresses and trousers is seeping through this year and its personally a look I love, although I am wearing leggings and not trousers I felt super chic and really comfortable. My favourite part of this dress is that it is asymmetric, it's something a little different and not found easily when you are plus size. The split at the sides adds edginess, and the integrated gold necklace attachment makes it stand out.

 Elvi is a fairly new plus size brand which I have featured here before, whilst they do include printed items in their collections, mostly it is made up with clean-cut simple fashion. Honestly their fabrics are great and their fit is pretty spot on, so no complaints on that. With development and more trend led items I can see this brand being really great. If you are looking to build some minimal pieces into your wardrobe definitely check out Elvi.
