As much as we love striking outfits in bold colours, with a bit of sparkle or maybe a dramatic neckline, it’s the wardrobe staples that we rely on to feel great on a daily basis. 

And these basics most certainly don’t need to be boring. When we think of wardrobe staples it’s all about finding items that are versatile, fit well and feel fantastic. 

Chances are they are the clothes you will get the most wear out of so it’s worth investing a bit of time an energy to find the ones you love. 

Think dresses that can work for different occasions with the help of clever accessorising, a skirt which can be dressed up or down, tops which go equally well with jeans or smart trousers and casual items for those days when slouching around is high up on the agenda. 

At Apples & Pears Clothing we offer a great selection of on-trend outfits in sizes 16 to 32 and we have raided our rails to find our top five staples which we think you should add to your basket today! 


plus size black skater skirt
Black Skater Skirt

Everyone needs a skirt like this. It’s made of stretchy, heavy jersey that drapes beautifully. Just pull on and team with whichever top suits the occasion! Maybe a crisp white blouse for the office, a sequinned camisole for a night out on the town or a stripy t-shirt and denim jacket for a picnic in the park. Also available in cherry blossom pink.  




Plus size yellow midi dress
Ochre Yellow Midi Dress

Once you slip on this beauty you will not want to take it off! This is the dress you need to add to your wardrobe if you are looking for an outfit which you will not tire of. It can easily be dressed up or down to suit the occasion, plus it’s super comfy! Also available in sage green. 




Plus size grey T shirt with pocker
Grey T shirt with Front Pocket

For those days when comfort is king this dark grey t-shirt is a go-to option. The light burn-out fabric and single chest pocket add interest while the V-neck sits great on larger busts.  





plus size knitted maroon top
Maroon Scoop Neck Knitted Top

Sleeves are an essential addition to any wardrobe, and this maroon scoop neck knitted top is great for those in between days when you need an extra layer but you’re not quite ready to pull on a winter woolly.  





plus size star print top
Black Star Tie Front Top

This top is a favourite with the Apples & Pears team. We love the star print and tie front while the cut-out shoulders add interest. It makes our top five as it’s versatile enough to take you from a day at the office through to drinks out in the evening plus the comfy jersey fabric makes it a pleasure to wear.
