Marilyn Straight in Plus NYDJ $134

A good pair of denim can last for years to come and are in style season to season. Since they’re such a wardrobe staple, invest in a few pairs from a brand that works really well for your particular shape.  NYDJ is one of our personal favorites for their comfort and style.  Classic cuts like a straight leg, that fit you flawlessly is a closet must have. Keep to standard washes like a basic dark and light blue, avoiding the trendy details.

Quality Undergarments

Elomi Smoothing Seamless Bra $48

Since bras are literally the foundation for your outfit, this is a good place to make an investment. Make sure you take the time to find one that fits perfectly for you.  Try on multiple brands and get sized by a professional in store.  Once you find the right one invest in staple colors, like black, white, and one that matches your skin tone flawlessly.

Black Pants & Suiting

Plus Size Structure Knit Pant Karen Kane $101

Black trousers work around the clock and can go easily from day to night. Wear them to the office with a crisp white button-down, or use them as a base for a feminine blouse for date night. Properly cared for, a well-made pair in a classic straight cut will still look stylish and good-as-new years later. Suiting is another wardrobe element where a good investment is readily visible. Think of it as an investment in your career, not just your wardrobe. Avoid trends and stick to quality fabrics, and classic flattering cuts, like bootleg or straight pants, for seasonless wear-to-work options.

A Warm Winter Coat


Gallery Faux Shearling A-Line Coat (Plus Size) $360

Spending a little more on outerwear for the colder months ensures higher-quality materials, that will keep you warm and comfortable when the temperatures drop below freezing.  But check the tags carefully for high percentages of quality fabrics like wool and leather especially for a pricier item. You want to get your money’s worth! When trying on coats keep in mind you might have to size up in order to fit all of your cozy layers on underneath. In terms of style keep the trend low key for this item, you want it to go with literally ANYTHING in your winter wardrobe.
