Cozy Up To Trendy Plus Size Winter Wear

This winter has been particularly brutal - to the point where my focus has been less on fashion and more on keeping warm. Though I have a big collection of plus size coats, I have had to step my winter wear game way up with this weather just to get myself to step outside the house. 

When the temperature dips below 25, it's hard to motivate myself to put outfits together so I decided to think of the very valuable intersection between cute and functional. From crew neck sweatshirts and earmuffs to over the knee socks and fuzzy slippers, this list is sure to help you make it through the next few months both stylishly and snug.

Plus Size Fashion Trends

Chambray is one of those fabrics that I associate with summer. It's a lightweight cotton that looks a lot like denim's little sister. I first closeted this chambray duster over the summer on Gwynnie Bee but I didn't have a chance to wear it until the temperatures dipped in the 30s. I'm a fan of making garments work for all seasons and this would be one of those times. 

The great thing about plus size clothing rental subscription service, Gwynnie Bee is that you don't have to commit to clothes you're just trying out. I can wear a summer coat in the winter because why not? Gwynnie Bee gives me that freedom to make my own rules and play with plus size fashion trends in my own way.

Today marks the first official Fall and I've got to be honest with y'all, I've been waiting. As much as I love summer, I hate being hot and Fall is a nice relief from the heat. Along with the cooler temps, Fall also ushers in one of my favorite fashion items to style: plus size coats and jackets!

Living in the Midwest, I never know exactly what temperature to expect when I step out of my front door in Fall. The weather seems to change as much as my style aesthetic so I like to keep my closet stocked with a range of coats and jackets that fit my every mood and fashion whim. Some days, it's cool; some days, it's hot; and some days, it's snowing. I like to look cute for all of them.
