5 Plus Size Winter Staples – Made for You!

It’s no denying that winter fashion can get difficult, especially when it comes down to styling & layering.

We often get stumped with the choice of either looking cute & braving the cold in the name of fashion. Suddenly, there are rules for what a fuller shape and figure can & cannot wear!

Do I wear this knit top under my coat? Will I overheat with these layers? Can I tuck my jumper into my jeans? There are plenty of questions that start to flood heads, especially when clothes aren’t always made to make room for such dilemmas. As the new season approaches, we’re here to help & perhaps make life a little easier when it comes to choosing warm & comfortable staples. Who said fuller figures can’t turn up the heat during the cooler months?

Here are our 6 staples we think every woman needs in her wardrobe this winter:


Who doesn’t love a good winter jacket? Effortlessly cool & versatile, plus-size jackets will carry through winter with style & ease. Not only that, in today’s day & age you have plenty styles to choose from. Puffer jackets act as a practical choice, while on-trend shearling jackets add a cosy layer of style & warmth throughout. Pair it with your favourite jeans and ankle boots for an ultra-cool day-to-night outfit! If you like to add a little edge to your looks, plus-size leather jackets may be the right path for you.

Classic & iconic in the best way possible, you can never go wrong with a blue denim jacket. They’re like your reliable best friend that always has your back (literally!). No need to stress about mixing + matching; these look great with just about anything; they’re an amazing pairing for layering.

 We’re nominating cardigans as one of many wardrobe staples you’ll come across this winter. A classic & lightweight choice for the masses, cardigans can be worn no matter the season (depending on the fabric, cut & silhouette). Button front styles are as functional as they are chic, giving you total control over your comfort. Is it a shirt? Is it a jacket? One may never know.

Combine it with high-waisted jeans or a maxi skirt and your outfit will be the talk of the town. It’s also guaranteed to score you major fashion points.

Oversized cardigans balance proportions and celebrate your curves in the right way. Lastly, longline cardigans are the epitome of elegance and versatility. These fashion wonders have a magical way of elongating your silhouette, creating a sleek, streamlined look that can take you from day to night seamlessly. Have a little fun with winter dressing and opt for colours that’ll brighten the day, perhaps a green cardi paired with your favourite denim!

A staple in the fashion-forward female’s wardrobe, you can never go wrong with denim, quite literally never. Perfect for almost every season, jeans are a great choice for winter. Not only do you have plenty of styles to choose from, but it also offers a whole lot of range. From high-waisted wonders to ripped and daring styles, there’s something for every queen out there. Designed to hug curves & accentuate assets, high-waisted jeans will make you feel like a superstar.

Go all the way classy & style your blue straight leg jeans with a blazer & a trench coat for the ultimate seasons appropriate outfit. Finding jeans that fit you like a dream is the key to killing any look – we can only hope that dream is nearby for you!

Make sure to shop with confidence & style in mind – fashion is subjective! It’s all about expressing yourself and having fun, wear whatever you want & don’t let society tell you otherwise.
