“Taste is shaped by many things – size should not be one of them.”
For those of you who have been fans of Theory, Vince, and Helmut Lang, have we a good one for you today. All these designers I just named are known for their clean lines, impeccable tailoring and fabrications, and also have a clean and sharp aesthetic to them- something that is really starting to show itself in plus size fashion.
BUT there is a new brand on the scene who is here to change all of that. Meet Universal Standard, a new contemporary plus size label, here to give us MORE.
“We felt that looking well-styled and modern for women size 10+ was more of a chore than it needed to be, so they decided to simplify things by creating a brand based on the idea that dressing should be a joy, and looking and feeling beautiful in your clothes should be easy.”
I mean, come on through Universal Standard! And if their lookbook is any sign of what we can expect, I am so elated and on edge with glee, because I do love a great clean line, smart suiting, and effortless styling! Catering to women sizes 10-28, Universal Standard is all about giving us plus size women “access to modern elevated essentials.”
Are you ready to get a first look? Let me share with you the debut lookbook! Just click the first picture to get started!
