Putting Together a Great Winter Wardrobe with Casual Plus Size Clothing

December 17th, 2010 by Lisa Metcalf

I have always loved my winter wardrobe.  I get to create gorgeous layered outfits with scarves, gloves, sweaters, coats, and hats.  There are so many great options available to plus size women, so there’s no reason why you can’t put together your ideal winter wardrobe.  Casual plus size clothing is easy to shop for online and you are sure to find exactly what you want.  Here are some winter essentials you can use to stay warm and look fantastic this season.

Plus Size Coats

Your wardrobe has to, above all, keep you warm during those frigid winter days when the thermometer dips below freezing.  There are many options for winter coats, but this year my favorite is the Duffle Coat.  I like that they come in a variety of lengths, so I can get a couple different ones that will fit a variety of outfits.  Most Duffle Coats feature a warm hood as well.

Of course, there are many different styles of plus size coats to choose from.  I usually opt for a lined trench coat for wearing to work.  Leather coats are perfect if you want to create a dressier, more elegant style.  When shopping for a coat, remember to compare cuts and lengths to find one that will fit your style and body shape.


A warm pair of boots is a must have during winter.  You want to keep your feet warm and dry, and a nice pair of calf boots is just the way to do it.  I recommend getting calf boots, since that height will keep you warm and is versatile enough to go with lots of different outfits.  Plus they will still look great during the spring.

Some women prefer knee high boots, and they can look great with certain outfits.  When you shop for boots, choose versatile colors like black, grey, and brown.  That way you will be able to use your boots with many different outfits.  If you live in an area with especially wet winters, make sure you get boots that are waterproof and will keep you dry.

You will likely find that local stores have very limited selections of middle age plus size clothing for women.  For that reason more and more women are shopping online instead.  Internet retailers of casual plus size clothing have tons of options for your winter wardrobe in a variety of sizes.
