The weathers hotting up!

When I first started writing this post there wasn't a single cloud in the sky. Not even 24 hours later and I've had to pull my hoodies back out of my wardrobe because, shock, in true British weather it's banging it down! But with so many gorgeous summer clothes in store and online, I couldn't leave you ladies out of the loop - it's the middle of May, we're wearing dresses and sandals regardless of the weather, right?!  
1. String pleat maxi dress pop art print £34 2. Forty dress arto print £26 3. Rose sleeve pleat dress £46 4. Forty dress mid length £24
If you're anything like me you've got a wardrobe full of nice dresses you've only worn once - because obviously we need a completely new outfit for every wedding we go to. So with that being said here at The Closet Queen we like to have a selection of affordable occasion outfits. Races, weddings, christenings.. we've got something for every event. A classic style that we always restock is the Forty Dress, and this month we've got it in the gorgeous Arto Print. It's an absolute bargain at only £26 and it fits sizes 10 to 20 approximately. If you want to wear a heel but still be comfy we've paired ours with the Intwinned Chunky Sandal - they're super lightweight and have a small block heel which makes them easy to walk in. 
1. Cotshoo sundress £20 2. Lassiar Dress £24 3. Hontas dress £24 4. V stitch dress £26
No summer wardrobe is complete without a sundress or two and we've got a lovely selection, new in this week. Our queenie Claire loves an off the shoulder dress and we're obsessed with the gorgeous Hontas Dress. It's only £24, fits sizes 16 to 26 and is available in black, camel and khaki green. Of course if you're not a fan of the bardot neckline it can also be worn on the shoulder to create a lovely square neckline. Ideal to throw on over your swimming costume or equally dressed up at night-time with sandals and a clutch. 2 looks from one dress, it's a no brainer!  

1. Shellace dress £26 2. Fern broady maxi shirt dress £44 3. Maxi shirt dress £36 4. Halter neck dress meadow print £34

If there's one style we can guarantee will never go out of fashion, it's the maxi dress. We have a huge selection here at The Closet Queen, whether you're wanting a fancy occasion dress or a casual everyday dress - throw one on and you instantly look glam with minimal effort. If you've got a holiday coming up then the Shellace Dress is a beautiful option. Featuring shells, tassels and lace this dress was made for the beach (and a cocktail or two!) It's made from a gorgeous high quality fabric with a slinky panel underneath so there's no need for a slip dress - and guess what, it's only £26 quid! It fits sizes 14 to 24 and also comes in white. These have been super popular so ladies, if you want one, make sure you're placing your orders now!
1. Usman shirt zigdrop print £28 2. Kaftan venice print £14 3. Spring poncho pod pring £14 4. Maria blouse £24
If dresses aren't for you, we've of course got a huge range of plus size shirts and tops to add to your summer wardrobe. It wouldn't be The Closet Queen if I didn't talk about one of our best sellers - the Maria Blouse. Every single year we sell out of these and you really do need at least one in your wardrobe- when we say they're one size, we really mean it! I'm a size 8 myself (and short!) so I wear mine as a dress but they easily fit up to a size 24 and look just as fab paired with jeans or leggings. We've got them in so many colours as well, including black if you're not a big fan of wearing colour, and they're only £24. 
1. Naddy top curve size £16 2. Fence dress short sleeve £25 3. Splashy t-shirt dress £23 4. Turby top £22
We've always got a large selection of easy wearing outfits at The Closet Queen, whether it's tops or dresses, for those days you want to be extra comfy! For those rubbish in-between days like today the Turby Top is an easy, comfortable option. It's made from a super lightweight sweater material and can be paired with jeans or leggings for a casual look. We have loads of colours available and it fits sizes 14 to 24 and is a bargain at only £22.
1. Doc sandals silver £28 2. Pouch bag £24 3. Diamond bead necklace £14 4. Bling buckle sliders £22
Here at The Closet Queen we also sell a gorgeous selection of shoes, bags and jewellery to really finish off any outfit. Our range of accessories starts at just £8 so it's really worth having a browse! For a perfect everyday summer shoe, look no further than our Bling Buckle Slider available in white and rose gold. They're soooo comfy, perfect for your holidays or everyday wear - and of course in true Closet Queen style they've got a bit of sparkle! We've got limited stock remaining in these but for only £22 you can see why! 
Ladies you can place your orders for home delivery or click and collect here at or alternatively you can pop into our lovely store in the Alhambra Centre, Barnsley - we'd love to see you!
