It just requires some searching — and for some people, finding the confidence to wear trendy clothing. (Just know that you can wear whatever you want!)

So today I’ve put together ten plus size outfit ideas for different life scenarios. Now here are some comfortable and stylish plus size outfits in time for spring to help you get your day started.

1. Plus Size Outfit for Dentist Appointment
If you want to look stylish while heading to an appointment, this outfit will be perfect!
Throw on this comfy sweater since some dentist offices can be chilly. A pair of jeans adds to the casual look. This cream colored headband and tan shoes complement the cream color in the sweater, giving this outfit a neutral feel.
If heels aren’t your thing to wear to a dentist appointment, that’s okay! Swap them out for a pair of white sneakers and you’ll be good to go.
2. Outfit for Grocery Shopping/Errands
Sometimes we have to make a quick run somewhere, but we want to look good too. So if you are heading to the grocery store or for a quick errand run, try this cute plus size outfit idea.
Start with a sweatshirt with a strawberry graphic on it and throw on this denim shacket over top. Layer on a pair of black jeans and black chelsea boots, then grab a reusable bag like this one which has mini strawberries – a nod back to the sweatshirt. If it’s sunny out, put on some sunglasses and go strut down the store aisle.
3. Plus Size Outfit Idea for Lounging at Home
Since so many of us are working from home, doing online classes, or just spending more time at home than usual, I felt a plus size loungewear look was in order.
This outfit has a gray cardigan to throw over this crop top from Girlfriend Collective (which goes up to 6XL!). I added some gray joggers to match the cardigan. Throw on some white Keds sneakers if you want to go out in this outfit. Finally, some gold hoop earrings add some extra style to the look.
4. Plus Size Date Night Outfit
Any spring dates coming up? If so, give this outfit a try for your next date night!
Whether you’re going to dinner or a comedy club, a nice bodycon dress like this light blue one would look great. I decided to go for neutral accessories to let the dress shine. Grab a chocolate shoulder bag, then put on some bronze heels. Use some dangle earrings like these to tie the look up perfectly.
If it is cold, you can add a cream cardigan or cream cropped jacket to the outfit. So go forth and have a great night!
5. Outfit to Wear for Thrifting
If you have been keeping up with the Spring/Summer 2022 trends, you know that bold as well as pastel colors are in right now. So I picked out this pastel green top that not only is trendy, but adds a pop of color as you go out thrifting.
Keep the bottom pieces of the outfit muted to let the top shine. Some black bike shorts are a great choice for warm days, but this outfit would also look good with black jeans. Slide into some white Converse All Stars (with some comfy no-show socks) and wear a yellow headband to finish the look.
6. Coffee Shop Outfit
If you want to grab a quick cup of coffee, have a coffee date, or work on assignments at a coffee shop, this is a super cute outfit idea to try.
Wear a pair of black shorts, or black trousers if you prefer. Then, put on this corset style top and throw on a cardigan. I kept the neutral tones of the look with black loafers and a nude shoulder bag to match the cardigan and to carry your stuff. Add a necklace for a little sparkle.
7. Plus Size Outfit for Office Job
Some people are back at the office for work, while others are doing hybrid models — part remote and part in an office. So when you do go into the office, here is a stylish plus size outfit idea for work.
Start with a light blue top that has long sleeves since offices can be chilly. Add some fun pants like these plaid ones for interest. Keep everything else simple — gold flower earrings, black heels and a cream shoulder bag are great choices for work. Put on some mascara or minimal makeup if you want and get ready to look fashionable.
8. Farmer’s/Flea Market Outfit
I live near a farmer’s market and some flea markets, and if you do too, here’s a perfect outfit to wear for your next shopping trip.
For those spring days, I started with a plaid crop top. Next, throw on some jeans or even swap them out for a flowy white midi skirt. For shoes, opt for a pair of Nike low court visions since you will probably do a lot of walking. Add a cute headband like this pink one and take a reusable tote bag with you to carry your items.
9. Plus Size Outfit Idea for Going to the Movies
Going to the movies involves being in a dark room watching a screen, so you might as well be comfy while you’re there.
Put on a sweater to keep some of the cool air off since movie theaters can be chilly. Some jeans would work (I love this light wash pair), and then slide into some slip on sneakers. I threw in this blue bag to add some color to the look. Now enjoy your movie night!
10. Plus Size Night Out Outfit Idea
With more people out again, you might find you want to head out at night this spring – safely, of course. Maybe you want a night out grabbing dinner with friends? Well try this outfit out!
This cute look starts with a lovely pink blouse. Grab a matching pink clutch, as well as a pair of chunky black heels like these. Add these tie-dye flared pants as a statement piece to complete the outfit.
