It’s hard not to admire and appreciate a pinup inspired clothing line that understands how difficult it can be to find garments that fit-well and look stunning, even if you’re an exceptionally curvy fashionista. The designer, Dianne Kennedy, followed up her eco-friendly line geared toward the plus-sized community, making a point that size really doesn’t matter.
Whether your body is sized as extra-small or XXXL, the femininity of Cherry Velvet will draw bombshells and retro vixens to the line. The vintage inspired dresses are obviously a tribute to classic swing dresses and wiggle dresses from the 1950s and 1960s, and the bold colors and patterns bring attention to your remarkable pinup style. Polka dots and floral patterns are popular features, but you’ll find some beautifully solid colored pieces, as well.
The dresses are a vision down memory lane and are playful and sweet. They designs fall in line with spring and summer fashion, but you could easily pair a cardigan and a pair of pantyhose to make them work in chillier weather, too. A nice element to most of these bombshell dresses are concealed pockets, but what’s even better is you don’t have to worry about unsightly bra straps. Most of the dress straps are constructed wide enough to hide them.
If you want to add a little more volume, Cherry Velvet also offers crinolines to wear under their dresses. Since the dresses have just enough length, the addition of a pop of color elevate these beautiful pieces to an even higher level.
The attention to detail in the deliberate colors, patterns and high quality fabrics in this collection is quite elegant and remarkable. Be sure to peruse Cherry Velvet’s sale section, because you don’t want to miss out on last-chance pinup dresses, structured jackets and full and pencil skirts.
It’s nice to know there’s a designer who represents plus sized women to the fullest, most especially pinups and vintage vixens. This really is one of the top lines for retro chic fashion.
