Stop the presses, everyone! Anthropologie has finally expanded their size range to include both petites AND larger sizes. Their new A+nthropologie items go up through a size 26W, and I could not be happier. Over 120 new items, including dresses, tees, jeans, blouses… I am thrilled. The only caveat is that their expanded line is only available in select stores and online, but I am hopeful that Anthro will expand availability in the near future. In the meantime, I love that they have a great assortment of pants especially — tops can be easier to find, but a good pair of pants can be hard to track down, as can a well-cut dress.
I have to say, I am so pleased with the styling of this collection. The models look wonderfully confident in their own skin, and they are seamlessly integrated into catalog photographs and ad space. The clothes can easily be found by size, but they have not been shuffled off to a sad corner to exist in a silo — pieces are integrated well into the existing product line-up. Bravo, Anthro. It is encouraging to be seen and included. A few of my favorites, below:
