Plus Size Leggings Outfit

Two plus size leggings outfit ideas.  One with wide calf boots, the other with hiker booties.

Both with a collarless sweater blazer or basically a long cardigan with pockets.  

Wear the Stripes

This outfit includes a striped tunic tee.  As I mentioned in my last post with stripes, I am an unapologetic stripe-aholic.

But, I often get questions and concerns from readers about stripes making you look bigger or a “rule” about no stripes.

In my opinion, life is just too short to worry about wearing stripes and as Melissa at Suger Coat It demonstrates in her blog post “Are horizontal stripes REALLY making you look fat?,” they’re really not.

She does such a fantastic job of breaking down this outdated “rule.”

My Favorite Ponte Leggings

While any ponte leggings will do, I wanted to mention my favorite ones.

These leggings are stretchy enough to be comfortable but sturdy enough to maintain their shape.  And they are thick enough to look smoother than a typical legging.  

Many readers have emailed me to say how much they love these leggings as I have been recommending them for years now!

However, if you are petite, try these or these.  For tall, try these.

Wide Calf Boots

As for the wide calf boots, I chose these, which are 15.5″ shaft tall and have a 17-19″ shaft circumference. 

If you don’t know what size boot circumference you need, check out this wide calf boots post.

I also wanted to mention that I highly recommend Duo Boots, if they’re in your budget.  They offer high-quality genuine leather boots in “custom” circumferences up to 20″!

Lipstick

As I’ve said, my favorite lipsticks, which I readily admit are bougie AF and totally break the budget, are these Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipsticks (or here).

They’re 65% oil and feel amazing on the lips!  Not to mention they smell fantastic.  And I just can’t say enough great things about them!

The closest lippies I have found at more reasonable prices are L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Shine Lipstick and Sephora’s Rouge Lacquer Lipsticks.  While both are similar, they aren’t even close to the decadence of the YSL ones.

  1. Love those hiking boots and what a fantastic price! Those Eloquii leggings look like they’d actually stay up which is hard to find when you have a belly.

  2. Hi Alexa – would you recommend staying true to size with the leggings? Ordering from New Zealand so won’t be looking to return if I get the sizing wrong 🙂
