Winter Capsule Wardrobe for Plus Size Winter Outfits

Wrapping yourself in a blanket burrito sounds ideal as the winter weather gets colder, but it’s not the best option when you need to step outside. Your plus size winter wardrobe doesn’t need to be only oversized hoodies and sweat pants. This is the time where you can mix and match both trendy and basic pieces to create the perfect winter wardrobe. Here are a few staples you need to create a winter capsule wardrobe for plus size winter outfits.

When you’re putting together a winter capsule wardrobe for plus size winter outfits, remember these 5 things: base top, bottoms, layering pieces, accessories, and shoes. Another thing to keep in mind with winter outfits is proportions. Be sure to balance your outfits with different fits. If you have an oversized sweater or knit, balance it out with a more form-fitting bottom. If you have on an oversized, loose pair of pants, pair that with a more form-fitting top.


This is going to be your base layer. Make sure it’s something that can easily be layered with other layers. Look for different colors and textures to switch up these pieces. My go-to staple base tops for plus size winter outfits are the following:

  • Turtlenecks
  • Oversized tunics
  • Chunky knit sweaters


The layers you add to your winter outfit will not only give you added warmth to the cold weather but also add to your look. Stick to the one to three color rule when pairing your layers with the other plus size winter clothing pieces you have on. Layers include:

  • Faux leather jacket
  • Camel coat
  • Trench coat
  • Patterned wool coat
  • Dusters and cardigans

When it comes to bottoms, keep it dark and simple. If it is extremely cold, you can have on tights underneath your bottoms for added warmth. Another tip: you don’t have to just wear plain leggings. Look for different fabrics, like these faux leather leggings. You can even find a pair with added details, such as rips, zippers, and ribbed details.


Accessories are the cherry on top to any outfit. The best thing about wearing hats and beanies is that these are perfect for days you don’t want to do your hair. Go to accessories for any plus size winter outfit are:

  • Hats and beanies
