Just remember that March 25th, 2016 is the day we’ve arrived.
In a commendable move to be inclusive, Vogue is serving up 17 different baller dress options in five body types they came up with. As far as couture will go, still not far enough at this point, it’s a lovely roundup of options. We’re digging these breezy dresses, because they’re ideal for summer nights spent at tiki bars and dinners on terraces, which is how we imagine you do summer.
It’s actually quite encouraging to see them putting forth the effort into finding couture like Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana that go up to a size 14. Many of these, though countless women still can’t fit in them, look quite well-made and one should never decide nothing fits until you try. We’ll look past the fact that one of these categories is “post-baby: a full bust and midsection with slim hips and legs.” Our move is to accept this acknowledgment as a sign that the times, they are a changing. They’re thinking of more people, and that bra shoot was so on point. Also, we’re happy to see they’re still propelling socks and slides, because they’re just so easy to get around in.
For the finer things in life, it’s always worth a look at Lafayette 148 New York and online, Net-a-Porter, Mod Operandi, Saks, and best of all Bergdorf Goodman lets you filter by size. That is if you’re game for a hunt for a size 16 thing that will break the bank, and you’re O.K. with less options. The trendier stuff is always online, but won’t last as long. Otherwise peep our favorite universally sized brands here.
We love stripes too, here are some more ways to wear it in all sizes.
