This is another review I need a slight telling off over, it's sat in my to-do pile for way too long.
However, on the plus side, I guess now is the time you would need to be thinking about bringing these items into your wardrobe.
As not only are they going to help keep you a bit warmer, but they would also make interesting presents for people who love something just a bit different.
If you haven't heard of Kate's Clothing before, let me tell you a little about them.
Kate's Clothing is a UK based supplier of alternative clothing.
Everything listed as in stock on their website will be dispatched normally within 1 – 3 working days. So there is no waiting around for items to arrive and then be shipped on.
They are in essence a small business, who are led at the helm by Kate.
Plus THEY STOCK PLUS SIZE CLOTHING! With sizes going up to a 6XL – 8XL / size 30.
I personally have been lucky enough to work with them a few times before and was thrilled they came back to work with me again.
This time when set loose on their website I picked the following products.
Necessary Evil Saturn Mens Ninja Hoody
This was a pick for Ash, rather than me.
Though hands up I have grabbed it off the pegs in the hall a few times for myself. as it is quite warm and so simple to just slip on when you want a quick and easy top to wear.
It is available in a M, L or XL.
The top takes it's style from ninjas and adds on its own gothic twist.
It features two pockets to the front, duffle buttons and a pointed hem.
However, perhaps my favourite part has to be the strapping detail around the sleeves.
me, Ash, this is a comfortable hoody that is great to just throw on as your heading out the door.
It isn't the thickest of material so you are going to want to think about extra layers on the coldest of days, but for an autumnal day, it should be just fine.
I think we would both agree that sizing on this hoody is true to size. So go on and grab one!
The Necessary Evil Saturn Mens Ninja Hoody has an RRP of £49.99. However, right now it costs just £24.99.
Chic Star Plus Size Purple Jacket
For myself, I went for this gorgeous Chic Star cost from their plus size range.
This gorgeous purple coat is actually available in sizes 8 – 30.
It has been made with a vintage-inspired cut. Which is truly flattering, no matter your body shape or size.
From its double-breasted button detailing, to flared hemline with pleats. What is there not to like?
Made up of 97% cotton and 3% spandex. This coat offers just enough stretch to help you feel like you can move. (I hate a coat which just doesn't allow you to move).
For those of you who want to know about the length, it comes in at 49″ in length from shoulder to back hem. For me, it sits just a little bit above the knee (I am 5ft 6).
Due to the style and flare of the coat, it is absolutely perfect to wear with any clothing item. From jeans to dresses and all types of skirts, it works.
Personally, I think this shade of purple is so eye-catching. While when it comes to fit, for me, it is comfortable. With these things in mind, it is a coat that I can pull on no matter what. From popping to the corner shop or headed out to something a bit more special, it works.
I would perhaps suggest sizing up if you are quite big breasted, as the buttons sit across your chest, while the base of the coat has more give around the stomach area.
Truly I adore this coat, it is so well made, stylish and good at keeping me warm!
If you fancy treating yourself to the Chic Star Plus Size Purple Jacket it comes in at £82.99. (The link given is for sizes 20 – 30, other sizes can be found across Kate's Clothing website.)
My Thoughts on Kate's Clothing
I personally I think Kate's Clothing is a wonderful alternative website.
I haven't come across an item I don't think is well made and worth the money from them yet.
They offer all sorts of products from unique clothing to homewares.
So if you know someone who likes things that are just a bit different, you should 100% check them out.
