We know that women come in all different shapes and sizes. With more variety of plus size clothing being introduced each season, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to share the must-have plus size items to have in your wardrobe. Whether your style is artsy, bohemian, chic or vintage, we’ve got the must-have items for you.
The Jumper Dress
When the cold autumn/winter weather arrives, all we want is to be cosy and warm. You can’t go wrong with a Jumper Dress. We think that a Jumper dress flatters the curvier woman and is great for comfort and style. Pair with some tights or leggings and a high boot for a classic winter look.
Denim Jeans are a must-have in everybody’s wardrobe. Find a pair that compliments your shape. If skinny jeans are your thing, then look for a pair that has a little stretch, not only will this be comfier but also mould to your body to show off your curves. If you are wanting Jeans that are slimming, opt for a darker shade. Denim jeans are great because you can pair them with just about anything, tank tops or a jumper are just a couple of items you can wear to make your outfit complete.
If you love a dress, then we think owning a wrap dress is a must. The V-neck shape compliments those who are heavier on top, while the wrap part will shape your waist and highlight your curves. A wrap dress suits every occasion, pair with some sneakers and a denim jacket for a casual look or dress it up with some heels and jewellery.
We know that accessories aren’t plus size specific, but they are an essential item for your wardrobe. Nothing pulls together an outfit better than a contrasting belt or some jewellery. When wearing toned-down colours, try adding a colourful scarf to brighten up your outfit, bold colours are drawing to the eye and will make you stand out in a crowd. Experiment with your accessories to see what works well. It’s the little details that bring an outfit together.
Everyone should own a pair of knee-high boots. They are comfy and go with just about anything. Pair with a skirt or dress for a chic look or a pair of leggings for a more casual style. Opt for some boots with a heel so you can ooze sophistication. Go with a chunky heel for a casually modern vibe or a stiletto to feel more glamorous.
If you buy one item this year, buy a faux leather jacket. This fashion staple will pair with just about anything, from bold colours, to patterns or just a simple white tee. There are a variety of different styles out there, so find one that suits you best. Opt for a Blazer style to wear with a pencil skirt or a biker style when you want a more laid back vibe.
A jumpsuit is an ideal piece for those days you don’t know what to wear. Just throw on the jumpsuit and a denim jacket with a cute pair of trainers and you’re ready for the day. Not only are they comfortable but come in a range of styles to suit your mood or occasion.
The pencil skirt is a classic fashion piece to own. Whether your style is faux leather, denim or knits, this curve-hugging piece will make you feel sexy and confident. Wear it at the office or a night out, we love this versatile piece.
When the colder months are here, make a statement with a bright full-length coat. Not feeling bold, that’s fine, opt for a more subtle colour like camel or beige. Whether your toned down or going for a more in your face look, we think you’ll look fantastic!
Most plus size women will avoid an oversize tee, but we say embrace it. An oversize t-shirt is an excellent addition to your wardrobe. Perfect for those slouchy days. To style it up, tuck the front into some high-waisted jeans, wear with some plus size pleather.
Now your wardrobe is complete with all these must-have items, go out and wear them loud and proud. We want you feeling confident and happy in your new-found style.
