3 Casual Outfit ideas and Tips for the Plus Size College Girl

One of our readers Jill left a comment on our earlier post ‘Plus Size fashion doesn’t have to be boring’ –

I would love to find some more casual looks for plus size students! I’m not too comfortable wearing full outfits to school everyday when skinny girls are rocking the yoga pants and draped top looks. Any tips on looking chic in big cardigans and uggs?

 

So, well this mini post is just about that. Stylists at Wink n Pout are answering the question with the help of these wonderful bloggers. (You should follow them….seriously!)

#1 Slouchy sweaters and Cardigans

The magic worker to wearing a slouchy sweater or cardigan on top will be skinny jeans/pants or jeggings. And if you can work a darker color, even better! And just in case you wondering if skinny jeans are for plus size women… read our post!

Also, with this combination you can most easily rock your pair of UGG boots.

#2 Slouchy Pants

When wearing slouchy pants, remember that you need to make a statement. It could be done with a scarf draped nicely (bold color, print or both), see the layered look and you will know. Next, you can wear a pair of slouchy pants that are a statement in themselves (read bold print or color) and wear with a basic tee and necklace. And yes, for college you can always pair these looks up with flat sandals instead of heels.

#3 Don’t underestimate basics

A great shirt paired with a good fitted pair of jeans can look absolutely wonderful. Choose only the best while shopping. Also, the basic tee looks great with shorts – again pay attention that they fit well and that you don’t forget your smile and confidence!

Apart from the above, don’t forget to dress to flatter your body shape and not just your size. More help for that on the app.
