Two plus size preppy fall outfits because reasons.
I mean, I know preppy is trending, but when is preppy not on point?
I’m having flashbacks of my youth and loving it!
Plus Size Preppy Fall Outfits
Plus Size Flare Jeans
I love that flares are back. I am only 5’4″ and I will always rock a flare!
These dark wash flares come in 2 fits and three lengths.
The “Curve Love” fit has additional 2″ through the hip and thigh to help eliminate waist gap.
Plus Size Ultra High Rise Flare Jeans Sizing
Go here to read about Abercrombie’s fatphobic history if you’re interested in this controversial brand’s attempt at redemption.
A&F now offers select items in sizes up to a size 24, or a size 37 in their jeans.
The sizing is similar to J.Crew in that their jeans come by waist sizing (vanity), so check the size chart below to see which size you are.
I haven’t tried any of their jeans because they don’t make my size.
But, go here for a review and more sizing information.
Life is Short, Wear Stripes
The first plus size preppy look features a rugby striped sweater in navy over the flares.
But, if you’re unsure about stripes, please read this post “Are horizontal stripes REALLY making you look fat?,” written by Melissa at Suger Coat It.
She explains, “No, horizontal stripes won’t make you look fat. Only being fat makes you look fat. And you know what, that’s okay.”
I think Melissa does a fantastic job of breaking down this outdated “rule” regarding plus sizes and stripes.
Outfit 1 Details
The plaid of the coat has a bit of kelly green, so I opted for this Gucci crossbody bag in bright green that I love!
Even without the coat, this green bag will work.
See this post for more outfit ideas with a bright green bag.
For sneakers, I went with some retro classic New Balance sneakers in navy.
They also come in wide width!
If a team is not your thing, opt for a vintage navy cap without a logo.
And of course, classic Ray-Ban aviators make a great choice.

Outfit 2 Details
This second outfit is just as preppy as the first with a green and navy rugby striped cashmere sweater.
It’s topped with a quilted vest in a rusty cinnamon brown color.
Again, I had to [as always] add a bougie bag.
But, any brown or tan crossbody bag would look great!
I kept the sneakers and accessories the same as those in Look 1.
