Picture this, you spent an entire weekend back to school shopping. There are only two plus size stores in your town, so you go inside hoping that there’s something you like that doesn’t look too… old. All summer you’ve been pulling out pages of magazines with outfits that are your style, so when you walk into the plus size store and see a denim dress with little rivets on it you get excited. This dress feels like it could be for someone your age.
You hang it on the back of your closet and plan the perfect shoes and hair do for the first day of school. You walk onto campus feeling good in your adorable denim dress.
Then you walk into your first class… and your teacher is wearing the same exact dress.
Yes, this has happened to someone I know.
My job as your plus size fashionista friend is to make sure it doesn’t happen to you (or the plus size kids in your life).
So, whether you’re headed back to grammar school, high school or college, I thought I’d show you some of my favorite plus size back to school outfits.
For me, back to school shopping is all about mixing and matching– this is the time to buy a few favorites. A pair of cute sneakers, jeans you love and a stylish backpack. Then get a bunch of fun pieces to swap in and out, layer etc.
So lets look at a few fun back to school outfits for plus sizes!
This backpack is my go-to accessory, right now. I’m always working so I like to carry my laptop with me when I’m out and about in the city. This backpack is sleek enough to still feel like a purse and it holds my laptop along with anything else I need for the day. It even comes with a detachable long strap purse.
Ever since my spring sneaker round up for big feet, I’ve been obsessed with wedge sneakers… I wanted these wide width sneaker wedges in blush but they didn’t have my size *single tear*. If you’re a size 10, go get them before they sell out!
I’ve got a few more items you can use to mix and match for your back to school looks, hint: you don’t have to be headed back to school to rock these looks– click the arrows to continue!
