Is it spring yet? Or has winter just started? I’m perplexed, and so, it seems, is the general public. Just the other day, I was walking around Soho and I saw someone wearing a puffer jacket next to someone wearing a pink crop top. We’re at that time of year where we’re dreaming of spring, but just aren’t quite there yet—but that doesn’t mean we should stop having fun with clothes and just wait for warmer days. I’ve scoured the internet’s plus-size fashion to find pieces that I can not only wear right now, but that I’ll make use of come spring, too. Win, win.
This year more than ever, I’m looking forward to making my style my own and also having fun with what I wear. In addition, I’ve got my eye on some statement pieces I know I can mix and match with pieces I already own to get the most bang for my buck. And if you aren’t able to look forward to spring yet—we get it, Punxsutawney Phil did doom us with six more weeks of winter—let me scare you a little: TikTokers aren’t gatekeeping, which means that good pieces are going viral and also selling out fast. (Speaking from experience, I’ve been trying to get the Clinique Black Honey Gloss since October!) .
Lucky for you, I also don’t gatekeep. I’m a size 14, and these are the 15 pieces that are at the top of my wishlist—to be worn now, plus all spring long.
All the Plus-Size Fashion Pieces On My Wishlist
You know that moment in your favorite rom-com when the main character asks for a sign? I’m planning to be that sign for the greater Tristate area in this cropped tank.
Satin Trim Blazer
I keep wondering when I’m going to regret purchasing all of the blazers I’ve bought. The truth is, I don’t think the day will ever come, and this gorgeous baby blue one is begging to be added to my collection.
If you didn’t believe me, here’s more proof that the blazer is like Beyoncé: undefeated. This one is cropped and features a trendy, gorgeous deep blue hue.
Knit Mini Skirt
This is definitely one of the pricier pieces on this list, but I see it as an investment piece. I’ve also been waiting for what feels like years for it to go on sale, and it's currently at a killer discount.
Satin Maxi Skirt
I’m envisioning this maxi length skirt paired with sneakers or boots and a trench coat to achieve a carefree aesthetic this spring. Can you blame me?
Denim Maxi Skirt
My Instagram algorithm knows I want one of these long jean skirts because it keeps showing me how to style it. I’ll admit, I’ve been #influenced. I’m thinking that it would look cute with a cropped tank and pair of sneakers.
Buy more dresses and thank me later. This is a perfect basic and base layer that can be worn alone in warm weather, or layered to perfection on chillier spring days. Plus, the ruched details make it super flattering.
I have the gray version of this jumpsuit and I wear it multiple times a week. My favorite thing to do is pair it with an oversized sweater or cardigan over top for a one-and-done base layer.
When I buy pants these days, if they’re not jeans (and sometimes even when they are), I don’t want them to squeeze me. I’m trying to float through life, comfortable, without my waistband fighting my stomach. I love how light and airy these pants look—plus, the cargo style is super on-trend.
Baggy Denim Jacket
Every spring since 2014, I’ve needed and worn whatever jean jacket I’ve owned at that moment. For the last five years it’s been the same light wash denim jacket from Amazon. However, this year, this darker wash is calling my name.
One-Shoulder Sport's Bra
This cutesy workout set is perfect for a transitional weather walk. Also, there’s just something about an off-the-shoulder sports bra. Whenever I wear one to a workout class, I always get compliments and feel extra confident.
These will be so adorable worn alone or with the matching bra above. Could the color get any better?!
Mejuri is my absolute holy grail for jewelry. I love this delicate chain that can be worn alone or layered for the perfect added touch of sparkle.
I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of neutral sneakers, and these are them. Imagine them paired with a colorful spring outfit come April... I rest my case.
I've been looking for a pair of statement kitten heels like this for quite some time, but most of the ones I've found are sold out. But I stuck it out and found these, and am completely obsessed. They'll look perfect with my wide-leg jeans this spring.
