Are you a plus size? So what? Big is pretty, and this is the most important thing to keep in mind when you are trying to refresh your wardrobe for the cold season. Luckily, the newest collections have presented a lot of items that take care of the problem areas and that make sure that you feel confident and sexy.

What to keep an eye out for?

There are some major trends in case of the plus size women, and you have to make sure that you have at least a few items in your wardrobe that belong to these trends. So, when being on a shopping spree look for tribal prints, metallic hues, moto jackets, snakeskin fabrics, sequins and embellishments, skirt dresses, bohemian flare, animal prints, knits, boyfriend blazers, fur, feather accessories and accents, and don’t forget about cardigans either.

Plus Size Trends


In case you have to attend a formal event, and you don’t know what to wear, here is fashion for you: opt for the strapless taffeta dress that isn’t too long, but doesn’t show too much leg either. The bust of the dress should be pleated and also look for those dresses that come with an A line skirt.


It is very easy to cover up the problem zones with the help of a trench coat, like the one offered by IZOD. This is made of lambskin leather and it comes with front yoke detail and epaulets. In case of trenches it is a must to have a belt, and it is a plus if it comes with front pockets. The best thing about them is that they are available in many different colors.

Toggle Duffle Coat

This is also a trendy option if you would like to make sure that you will stay warm on those cold winter days. The style has been presented by Michael Kors. You don’t have to be afraid of the elements anymore, because the coat will keep you warm and there is also a hood that protects you from the rain. Although only the toggles are visible, there are also some hidden buttons to close the front of the coat.

Maxi dress

You thought that the maxi dresses are only for the summer? Wrong! They are here to stay, and in case you feel like you have a few extra pounds, you should keep an eye out for the Macrame Tassel Hater Maxi Dress. The macramé detail adds a retro vibe to the dress and for this vibe to be enhanced there are also fringes in the front. The reason for which this dress is suitable for plus sizes is that it comes with a straight hem.

Printed dress with sweater

Being into the floral prints? They are extremely fashionable during this season, and for sure you cannot go wrong with the halter neck floral print dress offered by Jessica Howard. To make the look even more harmonic, you should also throw in a long sleeved black sweater to accentuate the dress.
