Look no further, your plus size fall style guide is here! Good bye August, and hello September. I don’t care what people say, pumpkin spice season is the best season. Fall is my season to rejoice. I live for the cold crisp mornings, dew on the grass, and long nights. But most of all, I live for fall styles. It’s very cliche for a fat woman to enjoy the months where she gets to cover up her body. I don’t know anyone who enjoys sitting around in their own sweat, but it seems like people still want to judge others on what they wear. So, I admit I am a plus size basic bitch.
The days where I can indulge in a hot coffee, wrap a scarf around my neck, and jump in puddles with my rain boots are everything. These are some of my staple plus size fall wardrobe pieces for 2017.

- Neutral toned booties
- Rain boots
- Blanket scarf
- Waterproof raincoat

Faux fur statement pieces
There’s a reason why we associate fur with fall and winter. Since the dawn of man, we have been wearing furs for survival and to keep us warm during the colder months. Nothing says “welcome fall” quite like a faux fur accessory to add to your cozy flannel outfits this year.
Outfits featuring faux fur for fall:
- BODYCON DRESS TURNED TUNIC & FUR BAG; OOTD
- SHORT GIRL IN A TALL SKATER SKIRT DROP-WAIST; OOTD
- EARTHY FALL TONES IN FOREVER21 PLUS; OOTD
Black jeans are so simple. Punch up your wardrobe with some plus size pleather leggings. Regular cotton stretch leggings may be comfortable but can easily look sloppy. Plus size fashion is finally ready to introduce us to more leather pant styles that are affordable.
Suede over-the-knee boots
I struggle when it comes to finding cute boots for fall, damn you wide calves. But don’t worry, I’ve pulled together a few wide calf over-the-knee boots for you here, plus some. Now your short dresses, tunics, shorts and tiny skirts can transition over to the colder months and still look fall appropriate.
Outfits featuring OTK boots:
- LITTLE GREEN RIDING HOOD IN OTK WIDE CALF BOOTS; OOTD
- FLANNEL DRESS FOR SPRING & OTK FRINGE BOOTS; OOTD
Neutral toned booties
Every fall I am sure to add another pair of neutral toned booties to my shoe collection. When you are plus size, there is nothing more satisfying than shoe shopping. It doesn’t really matter how much weight you gain or lose, your foot size stays the same. A few years ago I added some studded suede booties, then came my cut-out booties, and then my green booties. Here are a few cute fall booties to start your collection.
Since my trip to Baltimore, Maryland I have been waiting for the day I can wear my rain boots and new rain coat. Depending on your comfort level, I highly suggest indulging in a pair of bright colored rain boots. I have the Jessica Simpson rain boots, which sit below my calves so I don’t have to worry about buy a wide-calf version. My least favorite feeling is having to remove a sweaty calf from a rain boot. It’s like pulling your arm out of your sink’s drain pipe after it has been clogged for a day. I also really like the yellow croc rain boots.
This is one of my favorite travel accessories. It saved my butt when I was traveling through Europe last year during October. A blanket scarf in a secondary neutral like olive, burgundy or navy is a great layering piece this fall. Just like shoes, scarves are actually fun to buy since they aren’t subject to fickle plus size sizing.
Waterproof rain coat
After my incredibly wet trip to Montenegro, I knew I needed a rain coat or two this year. Plus size travelers can’t risk bringing multiple large jackets with them. Having a single waterproof rain coat can keep you warm, style up your fall wardrobe and keep you dry. I recently bought an olive coat with a faux fur trim for my upcoming New York trip!
Oversized knit sweaters
Oversized knit sweaters are a year round staple in this curvy girl’s wardrobe. Wether it is summer, spring or fall I love working oversized knit sweaters into my outfit. Of course summers in Los Angeles are a little too warm to wear all day, but for trips to the movies or even a bonfire, an oversized knit is a great way to stay snuggly this fall.
Dark matte lips
Continuing from last year’s trend of dark lips, dark matte lips are still a girl’s best friend this fall. My fall style guide tip is to pick a few shades in dark lip stains. At first glance they may look identical but pick ones with different undertones like brown, red, and purple. I have linked the dark purple matte lip I wore in my recent overall outfit below.
A cute umbrella
Maybe it is my love of anime growing up but I love a cute umbrella. Like a rain coat, an umbrella is functional and stylish. If you live in a rainy area, get an umbrella that folds up. My personal favorite are the clear bubble umbrellas that don’t distract from brighter parts of my outfit. If you opt for a colored rain coat, stick to a more simple style of umbrella.
