A wintry plus size tunic sweater outfit inspired by Kate Hudson. I came across this image on Pinterest, which has the same basic pieces as the “Straight Size to Plus Size” look that I recently published. So it was a no-brainer, I needed to put together this look too!
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.
So 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 everywhere for the pieces, out of the equation. So as always, my main goal is to inspire and empower.
Plus Size Tunic Sweater Outfit
So, as I said, this outfit is similar to my last post, with leggings and a tunic sweater. And the key was to find plus size sweaters long enough to wear comfortably with leggings. And I found several! In addition to the one featured in the image below, I also found some more plus size tunic length sweaters:
As for her biker jacket, I chose this one from City Chic. But the collaboration between R29 x Eloquii includes a cropped faux leather moto jacket. This is a great choice for plus size pear shapes who struggle to find a jacket that fits in the shoulders and the hip. And lastly, I found real leather choices that are fantastic, if they are in the budget!
Genuine Leather Jackets
Wide Calf Boots
I am fairly certain that Kate is wear a tall motorcycle boot. Those are more difficult to find in wide calf, but I did find an amazing pair that are available in custom calf widths up to nearly 20″ circumference! If you’re not sure how to measure you calves, please see this post, which also offers a great list of places to find wide calf boots.
If those stunning genuine leather custom boots are not in your budget, these are a great alternative. But, in the post itself, I added some wide calf riding boots with buckles. I think either type can work, but obviously the motorcycle boot is a bit “edgier.”
