Bitte Kai Rand Merino Wool Skirt At Vida Moda

Snuggle up in a sweater

The weather continues to vex us in the U.K. but instead of hiking up the thermostat, put the seasonal archiving on hold and hang on to your woollies.

There’s nothing more comforting that snuggling up on the sofa in a large thick warm jumper. Cup of tea in one hand, remote in the other. While it’s too cold to motivate you to venture outside, keeping our knitwear around can actually help keep the heating bills down. Garments with big roll necks, stretching down to our thighs, envelope us in cosiness. Continue Reading →

Tulip Winter Coat by Bitte Kai Rand | Designer Plus Size Clothing at Vida Moda

Brrrrr. Where’s my winter coat?

It’s been a mild winter so far but with a cold snap in our midst, it is never too late to invest in a timeless winter coat for all occasions.

Tulip Winter Coat by Bitte Kai Rand | Designer Plus Size Clothing at Vida ModaFinding a coat that will serve a few seasons means you get value for money but always look well groomed. A coat with a good cut will not only look smart but flatter all shapes and sizes, find one that enhances your best features and wonderful curves. Shorter ladies should avoid long coats, stick to a style just below your rear. Tall ladies can obviously wear longer coats but try shapes that can pull in at right places on the torso but be generous and comfortable around the hips.

The trick to keeping winter coats looking fabulous is to clean regularly according to the manufacturers instructions. Garment brushes and lint rollers are excellent to have handy in order to give your coat the once over before going out. All in all, with your coat looking so pretty and clean, you won’t want to take it off.

Classic colours such as black, grey, taupe or camel will always be in style but if you are depressed by a lack of brightness, liven up with a large, colourful, enamel broach with a motif symbolising your personality. Or you can use scarves to add colour to your coat. You can use soft scarves, long or short to great effect add an extra dash of style to your coat, plus they’ll help keep you warm!

Size 20 Tunic by Anathea at Vida Moda 2012

Why the tunic dress is your wardrobe staple

The tunic dress, popularised in the 1960′s got a make-over for the new millennium. Now it’s a staple of many women’s wardrobes of all sizes and generations.

Delicious day wear

Tunic dresses are perfect for flattering figures and showing off our best assets.

If you have killer toned calves, then find a pair of leggings, footless tights or even skinny leg cut jeans to team up with the dress for day wear. For those lucky enough to be of ample bosom, choose a v-neck or wide scoop neck with close fitting sleeves. Belts would suit tall, pear shaped figures. Fasten it fairly loose, hanging across one side. This khaki number has a small cowl neck and looks perfect with chunky boots plus would suit lots of different heights and shaped figures.

Going out glam

Convert any tunic dress to evening wear with a stylish pair of heels and semi-opaque tights for that night on the town. Or for tunic style tops, swap jeans for shiny black trousers, go boot cut for a more flattering shape.

Accessories make any tunic dress look dazzle, especially if you match your pieces. A pair of simple, elegant but long drop earrings teamed up with a pendant necklace will finish off any look. Or find a pair of nude patent heels and matching clutch for a look that is bang on trend.

Knitted Scarves at Vida Moda | Jungle Loopy Scarf

Ruffle Scarves and Loopy Scarces at Vida Moda

Add a ruffle scarf or a loopy scarf from Vida Moda to accessorise your outfit.

At this time of year a lot of the clothes we wear are darker colours, but scarves can add colour and interest your winter outfits. Vida Moda stocks handmade designer ruffle scarves and loopy scarves. Both of these knitted scarves will add texture to your outfit and of course colour for a touch of vibrant expression. The ruffle scarf is longer and can be worn in two ways: looped round your neck or hanging straight. Wearing it straight will also help to visually lengthen your body shape.

The loopy scarves are are made from the same yarns as as the ruffle scarves but the knit is looser and little freeform to give these knitted scarves a lovely texture which is a little abstract and quite modern. The loopy scarves are shorter than the ruffle scarves and are best worn round the neck.

I love these scarves and three of them, shown above, (Jungle, Snowflake and Rose) are exclusive to us at Vida Moda, they look fabulous, their visual texture is different and the colours I’ve chosen are exciting and can be worn with a variety of clothes. The yarns used in these knitted scarves are 100% acrylic so they are easy to look after, very fashionable, light to wear and snug.

Our range of knitted scarves for women are perfect for making your own fashion statement this winter and will break up your dark winter colours.

How do you like your Hosiery?

After some thought I’ve added a small collection of Hosiery to our collection. Have you ever bought supermarket tights in what you thought was large or extra large only to find that the waist only comes up to your hips or the crotch is half way down your thighs?

Plus size tights are a definite must have and I’ve sourced a make that caters for larger hip sizes, which I am pleased about. My other major consideration is what price range to offer. For me there is nothing more annoying that donning a new pair of tights that have cost me £12.00 only to stick my fingers through them. Therefore, I’ve gone for lower priced tights that are suitable for every day wear.

Also, at this time of year when we’re all wearing longer length skirts and boots we want comfortable, well fitting tights that do the job. I hope you are pleased with my selection. We have plain 15 and 20 denier tights, Opaque’s, Fishnets and Hold Ups – all in plus sizes. If you’d like to see us stock more variety please do let me know! As always, I welcome your comments.
