Anthropologie APlus inclusive collection

Anthropologie is a do-it-all destination for clothes, accessories and Pinterest-worthy homeware. Now, the US-born brand has broadened its size ranges to 6-24 (UK size) in order to create APlus; it’s an inclusive collection of wear-everywhere dresses, nice tops to wear with jeans and holiday essentials you’ll not want to miss. 

With multiple collaborations under its fashionable belt, the new APlus edit is exclusively online. Scroll down to see the pieces we predict will cause a stir among the fashion insiders.

Mango upcycled accessories

Known for its Conscious collection, Mango has added to the sustainable section on site with a capsule edit of denim accessories. Usually, denim is one of the fabrics that wastes the most amount of water in fashion production, but Mango aims to tackle this, in the coolest way possible. 

Made from recycled cotton, the remnant (or leftover) fabric has been upcycled and transformed into some of this season’s key accessories; from the bucket hat to chunky sandals and squishy grab bags. Elevating any outfit to new heights, this is what we call a guilt-free purchase.
