My Disclaimer

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 Sweaters

The key to this look was finding some plus size sweaters that are long enough to wear with leggings.  And I found several! 

In addition to the one featured below, I also found some more plus size tunic length sweaters:

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.  For tall, try these.

More Details

I found several parkas that are similar in plus sizes and similar boots that also come in wide width!

But the pièce de résistance are these wide calf boot cuffs I found on Etsy!  So cute for those of us who can’t fit into a standard boot sock.
