Straight Size to Plus Size – Burberry Scarf

Check out this straight size outfit from Suburban Faux Pas! 

She looks so comfortable and chic.  Love it! 

So, I decided to recreate the look with plus size clothes.   

Obviously, the iconic Burberry scarf makes the look.  But, not everybody can afford it, so I found a great alternative!

As I’ve said, these “Straight Size to Plus Size” posts are some of my most popular, but I also get complaints that the “models” in the images aren’t plus sized.  

So I just wanted to give a little background of why I do these types of posts: We are all inundated everyday by images of thin celebrities, models, and bloggers sporting the “latest looks,” i.e. clothing that doesn’t come in our size.  

I try to take these “unattainable” images and prove that, in fact, with some effort, plus size women can put these hot looks together.  They are attainable!  

And I try to take the effort, i.e. searching every where for the pieces, out of the equation.  So as always, my main goal is to inspire and empower.

  1. I love this outfit too! I appreciate the straight to plus size outfits. So many plus size clothes are shapeless and not attractive.

  2. Love this post!

    I had the sweater in my cart and it sold out! Argh!! Now I must find a substitute that looks very similar!!

  3. Alexa…Girl I’m loving so many of the outfits you’ve posted. I might go broke trying to buy the pieces I need to complete them! Honestly, You’ve made my life easier by giving me an outline to follow. I love that you mix designer items with items from regular stores. A million thanks! Can’t wait to see what’s up next. Kim

  4. Hi!
    I came across this outfit on Pinterest while looking for some inspiration. I love that you’ve taken the time to re-create outfits for plus-size women. The outfits always look so nice in the pictures but I don’t have the time to search for similar pieces that I like and that will fit. I’m right on the cusp between regular and plus-size, which makes it really really difficult to find clothes that I like and that fit. Regular sizes are a little too snug and the plus sizes I’ve found are too big and unflattering. I’m a stay at home mom, so wearing comfortable and ready-to-go outfits are pretty much what I wear every day. Unfortunately, that means I end up wear leggings, loose tank tops and cardigans….. every day. I still love my leggings, but I’m sure my family would love to see me dressing differently from day to day. Hopefully having links to buy pieces I like in a size that fits will mean I can actually buy whole outfits instead of just searching for hours for one thing that fits…. I really appreciate what you’ve done and am very happy to have found your website! Thank you!!
