I abhor the idea that heavy women should stick to conservative clothing options. I am big and I love bold. But there is not much that the big brands in India offer when it comes to plus size clothing. Doesn’t bother me. I’ve done some homework to put forth a list of 8 wardrobe must haves for plus size women. Till I get those ‘made in just my size’, take a look at the list:
Plus Size Denim Jacket
Doesn’t cost much, looks great, and rocks all seasons!
Denim jackets are easy, no-fuss style! Plus-size denim jackets can be teamed with checkered shirts or simple spaghetti tops. Mix and match your jacket with dresses or shorts.
Here’s how you can style your denim jacket:
Plus Size Bodycon Dress
Bodycon must have been the invention of someone who really understood the beauty of curves. Plus size bodycon dresses are fun and playful. Plunging necklines, pop colors, elegant or chic – go for it!
Plus Size Tulle Skirt
A plus size tutu skirt is not an easy find. This rare thing though is something you need to get tailor-made just in your size. Keep it a little flared for that ballerina, feminine look. Or, you could wear it a little below knee level and give it the needed lift by wearing a bit of heel.

Plus Size Shimmer Top
Heading to a club or an evening with friends? A plus size shimmer top will always be at your rescue. A shimmer top takes all the attention off the bulk. If the fabric flows nicely, it gets your curves all the attention instead! If you are not much of a bling person, go for a shimmer spaghetti top and pair it up with a shrug. Or, you could do just the opposite.
Plus Size Off Shoulder Tops
While buying off shoulder tops, plus size women must look for flared instead of fitted fabrics. This will give a slimmer look. A knit wear off-shoulder looks great and so does a chiffon one. Fpr a party look, pair your off-shoulders with tights or a skirt.
Plus Size Wine Colored Anything!
A wine colored outfit is perfect for a classy evening. You could wear it to a cocktail party or for a dim lit candle light date. Wine shades bring out the best of every complexion. If you want to keep it basic, a pair of wine color trousers is all that you need in your wardrobe. Match your trousers with a basic or polka dot white or black shirt.
Little Black Dress – Plus Size
This one is an absolute must. Choose a fabric that suits your comfort and style. Carry this black dress with a pair of wedges – golden, red, or orange. Depending on what occasion you are wearing it for, pick from one of the style options:
Plus Size Palazzo Pants
Palazzo pants are all about comfort and a complete chic look. Pair these with a tee or a peplum top. Or, you could also wear them with a long ethnic kurti.
