Treat Yourself to an Array of Cute Spring Outfits

As temperatures warm up, flowers bloom, and life becomes more colorful in every way, a fresh start seems inevitable. We lean into new trends. We deep clean our homes. We update our wardrobes—all for the sake of a new beginning. Spring has the power to ground and excite us at the same time. And though it happens every single year, shedding our winter layers never ceases to feel incredible. Not to mention, the season gives us plenty of excuses to try new (sometimes trendy, sometimes classic) plus-size spring outfits. Which, in our opinion, is something that’s always worth celebrating.

There’s just something satisfying about changing things up sartorially—whether that means swapping out your puffer coat for a classic denim jacket this spring or experimenting with styles you’ve never worn before. The changing seasons (and especially the transition from winter to spring) give us the opportunity to refresh our closets in ways we might not necessarily do mid-fall or in the hottest days of summer. Warmer temperatures give us an actual, tangible reason to try different outfits and shop for new pieces.

Of course, like any season, there are plenty of go-to plus-size spring outfits that work from year to year. Just swap in the latest trends as denim styles change (RIP to our skinnies) or certain tops go viral on TikTok. The key with spring dressing is to stock up on basics—a floral dress, a crop top you love, and maybe a pair of bike shorts—and then add in of-the-moment pieces and accessories where they fit. You’ll still feel like you’re giving your closet a major refresher, but you won’t have to buy an entirely new wardrobe. (A win-win!)

Keep reading for a bit of spring outfit inspiration, too. After all, everyone needs a few ideas to start their journey off right.

Here at Unruly, we’re committed to featuring plus-size pieces we genuinely love and want to share with you. We’re connected to an affiliate revenue program, which means we might make a small commission when you buy products through our shopping guides. This in no way affects pieces we choose to feature, and it never will. (Confused? We’d love to answer any questions you have about this. Email us at!)
