Fall Fashion For Plus-Size Ladies

Parsing the trends for each season is always a workout. After all, what looks good on the runway oftentimes looks like ca-ca on us plebeians. We do our best to separate the wearable wheat from the crazy-town chaff, but we recognize that sometimes our selections don't come in sizes fit for fuller-figured women. We scoured the web for some of our favorite plus-size fashion finds that don't compromise style for fit, and put together four looks with a little Refinery edge for all the curvy ladies amongst us.


Leopard Prints—Make a grand exit in this stunner of a top with a flowing, draped back. Maintain the mystery with a wide brimmed hat, and finish it off with red flats that add a pop of color (is it just us, or does leopard and red feel so classic together?).

Above, from left: T-Bags Leopard Print Blouse, $190, available at Saks; Type Z Brilliant Flats, $58.50, available at Zappos; Torrid Black Banded Miniskirt, $28, available at Torrid; Cooperative Felt Boater Hat, $34, available at Urban Outfitters.


Floral Dresses For Fall—Proenza Schouler paired a black floral dress with a turtleneck, a perfect way to transition the warm weather piece to fall. Toughen up the look while still keeping it feminine with a touch of shine with a bangle and chunky-heeled Madewell boots.

Above, from left: Lily Tiered Sleeveless Dress, $98, available at Nordstrom; Giles and Brother Bangle with Multi-Chaton Stripe, $150, available at Giles and Brother; Madewell Suede Desert Booties, $188, available at Shopbop; Land's End Women's Plus Size Original Solid Long Sleeve Cotton Modal Turtleneck, $24.50, available at Land's End.


Tie Dye—Take on a bit of a challenge and try to make tie-dye feel professional. This chic tunic can go from the office to the streets in style with the help of a little black blazer. Accessorize with a beautiful necklace.

Above, from left: Evans Tye Dye Longling Shirt $45, available at Evans; Norma Kamali Women's Single Breasted Blazer, $20, available at Walmart; Faith21 Regular Fab Skinny Jeans, $11.50, available at Forever21; Oasis Caravan Of Love Turquoise Chunky Disc Short Statement Necklace, $26.95, available at ASOS.


Moto—It's all in the details with these gray jeans that have motocross stitching at the knees. A comfy fleece in a moto jacket cut is perfect for when the weather starts to get crisp. Finding fashionable wide-calf boots can be a real challenge, but we're loving these real leather boots armed with gel insoles.

Above, from left: Fitzwell Stirrup Wide Calf Boot, $121.97, available at Zappos; Old Navy Women's Plus Fleece Moto Jacket, $34.50, available at Old Navy; Target Juniors' Plus-Size Pure Energy Skinny Jeans, $29.99, available at Target; Eileen Fisher Stretch Silk Tank, $104.90, available at Nordstrom.
