5 No-Fail Outfit Ideas For Women Over A Size 12

September 6, 2017 by SHEfinds Editor
shefinds | Style

The fashion world may be slow to come around when it comes to serving the plus size consumer, but that doesn’t mean women over a size 12 can’t dress super stylishly. We’re here with 5 no-fail outfit ideas that plus size women can add to their repertoire whenever they want to look fabulous in a flash.

Printed Maxi Dress + Ballet Flats 

Maxi dresses look great on women of all sizes, but they’re an especially flattering silhouette for women over a size 12. In spring and summer, look for maxi dresses that feature pretty floral prints; in fall and winter, geometric patterns are a fun option. When it comes to shoes, ballet flats not only look great with maxi dresses, but they also offer comfort. Win win! In summer, swap out ballet flat for pretty flat sandals.

Solid Maxi Dress + Leather Jacket

If busy prints aren’t really your forte, no worries. Solid maxi dresses are just as flattering, especially when they feature a beautifully draped surplice wrap top. If you want to give a feminine maxi dress a bit of edge, consider pairing it with a leather moto jacket.

Pencil Skirt + Cashmere Sweater

Need a no-fail outfit for the office? That’s easy! Pair a tailored pencil skirt with and well-fitting cashmere sweater. When it comes to accessories, drape a pretty scarf around your neck for some color and personality and you’re ready for whatever the work day throws at you.

Leather Leggings + Heels

Believe it or not, leather leggings are quite forgiving and flattering. The key is finding a pair that fits you well. They should hug your curves, but they shouldn’t be so tight that you can’t breathe or move around comfortably. Wear them with a pair of glam heels or heeled booties and an embellished tunic and you’ve got a great outfit for a night out with your girlfriends.

White Jeans + Sneakers

Whoever said women over a certain size shouldn’t wear white jeans were just flat out wrong! As with many fashion items, pulling off white jeans is all about fit. Because white jeans tend to be a bit sheer, look for a pair that isn’t skintight. Bootcut or boyfriend styles are a better choice and when paired with comfy sneakers and worn-in tee make for a perfect casual weekend ensemble.
