With the KM Curve collection available in sizes 18-24, ensure you’re always making a smart investment with our guide to plus size spring dress shopping.

When Does Spring Start?

In 2022, the official first day of spring starts on Sunday 20th March, and lasts until Tuesday 21st June. However, with the temperature starting to rise from the beginning of March and spring collections becoming available from February, you may want to start acquiring your new-season dresses prematurely to ensure that you can discover the widest selection of designs available as early as possible.

Plus Size Floral Dresses

Floral dresses are a forever-stylish, timeless option to ensure you’re refreshing your collection year-on-year. Drenched in versatility, many pieces can be styled to suit occasions as formal as weddings or pared back and worked for the office. Consider the playful elements of floral dresses and find styles that accompany weekend occasions, from brunches with friends to outdoor adventures or family affairs.

Forever flattering, a classic wrap dress is something that can be worn throughout the year; updated with accessories and outfit extras that brings out its best qualities. When crafted in a jersey material it offers comfort and flexibility, enveloping the contours of your body in the highest quality of ways. See colour as a styling factor, the contrast between light and dark an opportunity to play around with day-to-evening dressing. With the temperature through spring having such variety, start the season by pairing your floral wrap dress with knee high boots, a slightly bohemian combination that nods to the ‘70s, or try with heeled sandals as a glamorous warm weather alternative. With layering, start with a sleeveless faux fur gilet to keep up the boho aesthetic, or keep it contemporary-yet-classic with a leather blazer.

Exude femininity and unparalleled confidence with a figure-skimming plus size floral mini dress. A shorter length elongates the legs, whether you choose to forgo tights or not. A dress like this calls for one footwear choice only – heeled shoes. Classic court pump shoes provide understated elegance and are often more comfortable than an alternative such as a stiletto sandal. As a refreshing spring addition, bring out some of the colour within the dress by accessorising, be it a bright pair of shoes or handbag choice – however try to avoid a ‘matchy matchy’ effect, forever a faux pas.

Plus Size Satin Dresses

A satin dress not only feels exquisite to wear, with the sumptuously soft fabric comfortable on the skin, but it also looks premium. Enhanced with a subtle shine, easy elegance is guaranteed in a satin piece, as well as luxe comfort.

The best part about a satin slip dress is the endless outfit opportunities that comes from it. A simple classic such as a plus size black satin dress brings a ‘90s influence into modern day dressing, or a colour pop slip dress makes a true statement. Whether worn alone alongside a simple pair of sandals for a romantic evening or layered for daytime dressing alongside an oversized knit jumper, it’s an easy option for transitioning your outfit through different plans over the day. If wanting to wear a slip dress and are hesitant to try slinky straps, layer with a fitted top or jumper underneath, and complete with an oversized blazer on top.

A plus size satin mini dress is a great party addition. The nature of the material means it effortlessly skims the form, showing the very best parts of your figure. The fluid movement of a satin design ensures premium comfort, perfect for dressing through the inevitable warmer days. Embrace the arrival of the summer by wearing the dress alone, alongside flat or platform sandals as an easy option.

Plus Size Maxi Dresses

A maxi dress is the ultimate entrance into ethereal spring dressing. Perfect for dreamy, sun-drenched days enjoying the great outdoors, a floor-skimming voluminous style invites understated elegance into any wardrobe, whilst a sophisticated cascading piece is an elevated option for upcoming invitations.

Now that spring is upon us, it’s time to introduce bold, high-energy dopamine-inducing options into your wardrobe. A beautiful maxi dress can be a striking option, adorned with beautiful, tropical prints, or presented as a tonal piece. Extra details such as oversized flowing sleeves and an asymmetric draping skirt enhance the piece further. Plus size long sleeve maxi dresses can be worn throughout the summer, so you can make the most of your investment for months on end.

Style may have progressed beyond the years of long skirts and high necklines, however, sometimes it seems like the most appropriate option. Vintage-inspired dresses have had a resurgence, with high necklines, lace embellishments and voluminous sleeves bringing their own powerful details. Modernise these classic designs by completing with chunky ankle boots, or keep it more relaxed with strappy sandals.
