Xandres Xline at The House Of Fraser

I always love hearing about new plus size brands. So I was quite exited when the House Of Fraser contacted me with the great news that they will be stocking Xandres Xline.

Xandres Xline – A Plus Size Line Of A Beligian Design House

Xandres Xline is the plus size line of the belgian brand Xandres which is admittedly not one of the cheapest lables available but it does offer some interesting new pieces as their style is based on an overall classic style interspersed with some more subtle and some more statement trends but always remains timeless.

Obviously I am not a fan of every single piece and while some pieces are clearly targeted at a market a little older than myself they do seem to have managed to overall achieve a good balance between classic and fashion.

Here are some of my favourite pieces:

Road Testing Xandres Xline with the House of Fraser

Amazingly the House Of Fraser offered me the chance to road test one of the pieces.  I was looking out for a piece that would allow me to benefit from the quality that I hoped for as well as the timelessness of the line and so I was looking for a piece that could work with many other outfits rather than one of their beautiful statement pieces. And in my case the best choice appeared to be a cardigan:

This is the beauty I chose:

Xandres

Yay or Nay?

The cardigan did not disappoint. The quality is amazing and I really love the colour.

The image does not any wear near live up to reality. The cardigan is a beautiful pastel turquois that is interwoven with some with some subtle silver shimmer. It goes wonderfully with my current obsession of blue hues and nude blush tones.

The quality of the piece also lives up to my from the price already rather high expectations. The downside of the quality though is that you will have to live with the little mither of handwashing it but the positive side is that it if you treat it will should give you many years of wearing a beautiful cardigan, that for once should not lose it’s shape or shine.

The Final Verdict?

Would I buy it myself? I have to admit…  Maybe not, with an original price of £109 it would simply lie out of my price range. Out of budget constraints I personally rather look to cheap and cheerful ranges at the moment.

Would I have invested the money into this piece though for this time, I do believe Iwould not  have been disappointed – I do believe you would get your money’s worth in quality and length of wear out of it – and at the moment the piece is also reduced to £54.90 and so are many of the other Xandres Xline pieces at the HoF at the moment. So if you like it, now is the the time to snap it up.

The literal bottom line is: If you  can afford it and like timeless pieces then I do believe Xandres Xline is a worthy Plus-Size designer brand to invest  in.
