Ah, fall… The leaves on the trees transform into a rainbow of breathtaking colors, the first fires of the season are lit, and our tongues rejoice that the iconic Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is finally back on the menu.
And the best part? Fall full-figured fashion, of course! When the temperature starts to dip, it gives us the perfect excuse to revamp our wardrobes with “come snuggle with me” sweaters, sassy scarves, and beautiful boots. Below are this year’s top 10 plus-size trends to welcome in the new season with style.
1. Brightly Colored Sweaters
Yes, I know what you’re thinking; sweaters are so boring! Not in bright colors, they’re not! Combine sweaters in brilliant shades like ruby red or vivid violet with black leggings or your favorite pair of jeans and all eyes at the après-ski lodge will be on you.

2. Sweater Dresses
Whether you prefer a curve-hugging fitted silhouette or a slouchy, looser one, sweater dresses are a must-have for any plus-size woman. Typically made from knits or knit combos, these comfy classics make a comeback every year for a reason. Pair them with kicky, calf-length boots or ankle-length booties and top it all off with a chic beret. Now that’s classy!

3. Embellished Denim
Let’s face it; as much as we made fun of it, we all secretly loved the Bedazzler! Whether they’re on denim jackets, pants, or even purses, stylish studs and gorgeous gems can make even the most mundane denim chic.

4. Print Dresses and Tights
Believe it or not, you are allowed to wear prints when it’s not spring or summer, especially in warm fall colors like olive green, dark hazel, amber, and golden brown. And don’t forget to pull on some tights to stay warm! Black tights go with any color dress and can even be layered under those summer shorts that are too cold to wear but you just can’t bring yourself to put away yet.
To accent your waistline and showcase some extra style, add a woven belt over the dress.

5. Turtleneck Dresses
Is your neck chilly but you don’t feel like wearing a scarf? Turtleneck dresses have got you covered, literally. Made in a variety of fabrics, these super versatile dresses can be worn alone or with tights and a jacket for extra warmth.

6. Slouchy Jeans and Heels
Not every pair of jeans has to be skin-tight! More and more women are realizing how stylish those uber-comfy slouchy jeans can be. Rocking them with heels, dangly earrings, and oversized sunglasses will give you a flawless French vibe and will prevent you from looking sloppy.

7. Black and White
This combination never fails to give you an edgy, striking look and it works for every single skin tone and body type when done correctly. Show it off in textured skirts, funky cuts, and unique lengths and proportions, and add pops of color with a hot pink purse or bright purple shoes.

8. Statement Scarfs
Scarves are the epitome of elegance and are especially perfect in the fall when you need just a tad bit more warmth but it’s not time to pull out the winter coat quite yet. Scarves come in a major multitude of styles now; traditional neck wraps, half-sweater scarves, shrugs, and even scarves with hoods, all of which come in a myriad of colors and patterns to brighten up the dreariest fall day. What the heck; go for broke and morph them into a skirt over your leggings! The possibilities are truly endless.

9. Opera Gloves
Channel your inner Pretty Woman even when you’re not watching the opera with Richard Gere (sigh…). Opera gloves are the essence of glamor and can be found in multiple lengths, with or without fingers, and in many different materials such as satin, lace, spandex, velvet, silk, and even fishnet. Wear them with your favorite evening gown and exude elegance all night long!

10. Extra-Clunky Clogs
Originally called “maximalist clogs” when they debuted in the ‘70s, these clogs are back to give you that extra height you want while still providing the support and comfort of traditional clogs. Just about any outfit can be topped off with them; bootcut jeans, leather pants, overalls, or even pants suits.
