Winter is for staying warm, cozy, and cute. (That’s it. That’s the Tweet.) As temperatures drop, bundling up in chunky knits and puffer coats is key—but it can be difficult to make all our warmest wardrobe pieces look chic in addition to keeping us toasty. Can a marshmallow-esque jacket look Instagram-ready? Do turtlenecks serve as more than a neck-warmer? How do you wear a dress during winter without freezing your buns off? Styling plus-size winter outfits sounds complicated—but there are plenty of simple outfit recipes you can use to make getting dressed when it’s cold outside easy AF. (Thank. Goodness.)
All plus-size winter outfits begin with pieces that are both warm and adorable—and then styling them in ways that create *chef’s kiss* looks. Simple, right? You can go for a classic mom jeans and turtleneck combo, then add chunky booties and colorful sunglasses to make it a perfect wintry ensemble. Or, turn your athleisure faves into a swoon-worthy look with animal print leggings and fashion sneakers. Whether you’re chilling at home this winter or hanging out with loved ones, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. (Seriously.)
Keep on scrolling to discover some of the easiest (and cutest, of course) plus-size winter outfits to try this season. Recreate them with pieces from your own closet or shop each look below. Either way, you’re sure to end up with the ultimate winter wardrobe. Prepare to turn some heads, bb.

1. The (Almost) All-Black Look
Because so many people live in all-black ensembles during the winter, we had to include one (nearly) perfect look. You truly cannot go wrong with some black mom jeans, a black turtleneck, booties—with a little animal print flare, because why not?—and some sunnies with a pop of color. Low-key, it gives us Kim Possible vibes, and we’re here for it.

2. The Athleisure Is Bae ‘Fit
Since 2020 has been the year of lounging at home, winter athleisure looks are a must. Try pairing some bold animal print leggings with a bralette (Comfort is key here!), puffer coat, and cute sneakers for an ensemble that keeps you feeling totally comfy at home, but looks super chic for running errands, too. It’s the best of both worlds.

Winter can be majorly dreary, so dressing up in bright colors is a wonderful way to combat the gloom. We love adding a bright sweater to our go-to jeans and booties. It’s a look that’s simple, but it can (quite literally) brighten your day. And who doesn’t want to be a bright spot in the world?

5. The *Essential* Winter Outfit
Of course, no winter wardrobe would be complete without the perfect plaid top. Whether you prefer yours oversized or slightly fitted, pairing the look with on-trend faux leather leggings, loafers, a mask, and seriously cute mask chain (!!) is a no-brainer. Comfort absolutely does not negate style this season, folks.
