But what plus-size fashion trends should you consider for your fall/winter wardrobe this year? We rounded up our favorites and curated them for you in this guide. Here are the top styles to shop in plus-size fashion for 2023.

Matching Sets

Matching sets have been popular in sportswear for decades now. What you may not realize, though, is that they have been around as a casual street style for nearly as long.

First becoming trendy in the groovy '70s, matching sets have recently experienced a fashion renaissance. Today, ladies love this option because it offers versatility for the ultimate mix-and-match experience.

You can try this trend for yourself with our Fadeaway Racer Tank and matching Fadeaway Pant. This set can take you from the gym to the airport and everywhere in between. Or you can mix and match for a look that's 100% unique to you.

Elevated Basics

Basics are integral to every wardrobe, and a plus-size closet is no different. In 2023, boring old basics are out, and so-called elevated basics have arrived to replace them. But what is an elevated basic, you may ask?

You can interpret "elevated" in a few ways. Maybe you choose a high-quality basic you know will last. Elevated basics also feature unique details, colorful fabrics, and uber-flattering cuts.

Take our One Shoulder Rib Knit Top for instance. Inspired by the classic rib knit tank, we took the design of this top one step further. We added a cool one-shoulder detail to make this basic stylish enough to wear alone.

Sheer Tops and Jackets

Do you tend to go bold over basic? Then this plus-size trend is made for you. Sheer tops are all the rage this season, featuring on catwalks ranging from Tibi and Tory Burch to Prada and Eckhaus Latta.

Even if you don't want to bare it all, there's a way to make this trend work for you. Simply pair your favorite basic underneath (or on top) of your trendy sheer blouse.

Another way to get in on the trend without showing too much is with our Sheer Bomber Jacket. It comes in five bold colors and features a sporty silhouette you'll love.

Sportswear-Inspired Pieces

Fashion and sports may not seem like a match made in heaven. But recently, trends have proved otherwise. Sportswear-inspired clothing items have been slowly entering the fashion world since the 1980s.

Today, sportswear has invaded nearly everyone's wardrobe. The rise of athleisure is thanks, in part, for this. TikTok has also influenced this trend, giving rise to ballet-core and, more recently, tennis-core.

Get in on this trend with our Cross Court V-Neck Top. Combining the relaxed feel of a sweater vest with the look of a tennis polo, this top will have you serving looks at work or while watching the US Open on your couch.

Loungewear as Every-Day-Wear

Speaking of athleisure, loungewear as every-day-wear still has a hold on the fashion world. This trend originated during the COVID-19 pandemic but can now be seen on streets across the US.

To get the look, go for comfy, cozy staples in oversized silhouettes. There's a common misconception that plus-size women can't do oversized. But as long as you don't forget to highlight your curves, this trend can work for you.

Dip your toes into this trend with our oversized Quilted Vest. With two neutral color options and one bright, bold hue, this trendy piece will have you serving looks to and from the gym or at the grocery store.

Comfy Staples

We all know and love our closet staples. A pair of tailored trousers, a white button-down, flattering jeans, a versatile dress, and a slouchy t-shirt will take you far in life.

The latest trend is to comfy up these wardrobe essentials. Reach for softer fabrics, roomier cuts, and breathable materials and accents. That way, you can get even more wear out of your favorite items.

Nab a new comfy staple for yourself with our Ribbed V-Neck Dress. This highly flexible midi-dress can be dressed up with a blazer and heels for work. Or you can make it weekend casual with a pair of sneakers and a baseball cap.

Slimming Silhouettes

From asymmetrical hemlines to long-line cardigans, trendy apparel items are doing double duty these days. These items don't just look fashionable. They also magically make you look slimmer.

Other slimming staples to invest in this season include v-neck tops, longer necklines, and flutter sleeves. Bonus points if you add on an oversized bag, which is about to get big again with the 2010's style resurgence.

Cigarette pants are also back and better than ever. We created our own version of this classic style staple in the All-Day Slim Pant. Look and feel your best in these flattering pants that can take you from work to an evening out.

Knits Everywhere

Knitwear is no longer just for winter. In 2023, you will see women of all sizes rocking this trend with rib-knit body-shaping dresses, cable knit sweatsuits, and even work-appropriate knit pencil skirts.

The best thing about this trend is the added stretch. Knits come with a light stretch, making items made from them more durable. Plus, they fit better and offer a wider range of motion for on-the-go ladies like you.

One of our favorite options to add to your wardrobe if you want to try this trend is the Ribbed Skirt and Sleeveless Ribbed Turtleneck set. Make a statement at work while feeling comfy enough to power through your day.
