'I'm a size 14-16 and 5'10. My problem area is my tummy. I tend to live in floaty tops + skinny jeans and tea dresses but want to mix my style up a bit for spring! Any suggestions?x'

I wanted to make sure whatever I found I would feel comfortable wearing, being a bigger girl myself, I can totally relate to what you’re saying. It sounds like you have a great sense of style already, and you can never go wrong with tea dresses. I personally love shorts, I think they’re so versatile and can be dressed up and dressed down. I wear mine all year round, perfect for summer, perfect with tights in winter. I think they can be really flattering too. You can easily tuck a top in, or have it out and loose fitting over your tummy. Shorts really pull you in too which makes you feel comfortable and ultra stylish. Loads of high street shops have a great spring/summer collection now, and shorts are playing a big part. I wanted to bring some typical spring prints in, but also keep in some block colours which will also be big this season.
