At Cosmo, I’m dressing women of every size and shape for every single issue. And sadly, it’s particularly hard for me to find fashion forward brands that cater for women over size 14.

I literally have the fashion world at my feet when it comes to having contacts, so I can’t even imagine how frustrating it must be for other women trying to access great fashion in all sizes.

So when a brand that Cosmo already loves launches a range that goes up to size 24, I need to announce it to the world. Now.

Today Boohoo.com launched an exclusive range for spring/summer 2014 in sizes 16-24. The best bit? New styles will be added on a daily basis.

Here’s a sneak peek of the on-trend collection below – expect to see cool chalky pastels, skorts, culottes, denim, floral and brights...

These are the colours and trends you’ll be wearing next season:

Colours: Pink, cobalt and navy blue. Plus denim and anything leather will be big.

Trends and prints: sports luxe, checks, floral, arty prints, western, midi skirts, pleats, pencil skirts, culottes and marble print will be everywhere.

Shoes you’ll love: pointed toe heels, skinny strapped stiletto, jewelled flats, ankle boots and over the knee boots.

Need some tips on dressing to flatter your figure? Accentuate your best bits with a print or statement piece, teaming it with a plain basic in black or navy. Use a belt to give yourself a waist – even a sweater or knit jumper will suffice.

Create the illusion of being taller by trying high-waisted pieces (like a skirt or leather shorts) or wear loose items on your bottom half worn with heels (like a midi skirt or loose wide-leg trousers).

Or, if your legs are your favourite body part, wear something short like a mini skirt or pair of shorts, but layer a long shirt over the top so the outfit doesn’t appear too skimpy.
