With a roller-coaster Super Bowl behind us, it’s time to focus on another halftime milestone – the mid-season wardrobe refresh!
Plus Size Fashion
Whether your winter wear is in need of some perking up, or you’re just ready to start shopping for spring styles, it’s time to add some fun and function to your closet. We’ve rounded up 12 plus size fashion pieces that you absolutely must add to your closet. And score! You can snag them all right here on therunway+.
1. A leather skirt
When the temperature outside dips below freezing, it’s easy to retreat into a wardrobe constructed entirely out of sweaters. However, there are lots of other textiles out there that can provide warmth while adding texture and interest to your outfit, too! Mix things up with a fun faux-leather pencil skirt like a Lauren Ralph Lauren panel skirt, and you’ll be surprised by its comfort and versatility.
2. A lace jacket
As much as we’d love for it to be unnecessary, jackets are still a must the next few months. Luckily, a lace accented jacket like this one from ASOS is so insanely cute that we might just forgive nature for making our morning commutes so cold. The delicate lace on this piece of plus size fashion juxtaposes perfectly with the masculine, motorcycle-style silhouette, making this a must-have piece any time of year.
3. A transitional dress
A ¾ length sleeve dress is ideal for the transition from winter to spring, and with a bright accent color like coral, this sheath introduces the colors of spring into your more muted winter wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to wear a dress like this one from Mistook with tights or boots until the weather warms up, either!
4. A jumpsuit
Two words: Emma Stone. Specifically, Emma Stone at the Golden Globes, looking edgy, romantic, and just plain fabulous in her embellished jumpsuit. If you haven’t yet tried the jumpsuit trend, now is your time, with this gorgeous navy piece from Club L, ASOS. It’s got all the class and elegance of a dress, with the added warmth of pants- perfect for January weather!
5. A draped top
Nothing says spring to us like romantic, pretty pastels. The sweet pink of this DKNYC top paired with the soft draping of the fabric makes for a truly lovely addition to your spring wardrobe. And after the stress of the holiday season, everyone deserves a lovely gift for themselves. Go ahead, we won’t tell!
6. An embellished collar
It may seem too soon to start stocking sleeveless tops in your closet, but an ASOS Curve blouse with a wow collar will prove itself to be very wearable far before those summer months; just try to keep yourself from wearing such a cute top for that long! Paired with a simple cardigan in a bright color, this top will be the star of your spring wardrobe.
7. A tie-front cardigan
Isn’t it wonderful when designers make pieces that are cute and flattering? The tie on this classic Jones New York cardigan cinches you in at your natural waist, emphasizing your rocking curves and making this one of our favorite plus size fashion pieces for the coming seasons!
8. A floral midi dress
Until we can see flowers blooming outside our windows, why not let them bloom in your closet? This ultra-comfortable jersey dress from Club L, ASOS features a flattering side panel with a floral print that brightens any day- regardless of winter snow or spring rain. Plus, the midi length of the skirt is very on-trend this year!
9. Menswear pants
We love menswear style almost as much as we love a chic printed pant. This pair from Marina Rinaldi combines the two in a flawless wool blend that is sure to leave your legs warm and your closet exceptionally polished for the rest of the season.
10. A snakeskin something
This skirt from Lord and Taylor perfectly exemplifies the shift from winter to spring with its textural knit fabric and pop of bright turquoise hem. The variety of colors in the pattern make this skirt easy to pair with any top from your closet, whether it be a long-sleeved sweater in January or a sleeveless shell come May.
11. A fit and flare coat
Finally, try preparing your winter wardrobe for spring by updating your coat- instead of classic winter tones like burgundy or black, opt for a light pastel like a pale blue for a surprising take on a winter staple. The warmth of this wool blend coat from ASOS will keep you toasty through whatever snowstorms may come, but the soft and sweet color will allow it to be worn seamlessly into the spring.
12. A bling-ed out sweater
Try adding a little glitz to your winter closet. Daytime sparkle as a top layer can breathe new life into the pieces you’ve been wearing for the past few months. Vince Camuto’s embellished sweater proves that he adheres to one of our mottos: a little sparkle makes everything better.
