    Default Winter wardrobe?

    I'm looking for some inspiration.. I need some new winter gear. I live in a cold climate so yeah some days it's snowing. I have always just done a jumper with trackies etc. very boring and basic. Sometimes wear jeans but then I wear a boring jumper with it. I desperately need some help to work out some nice outfits for winter. I have zero body confidence. Definitely a 'plus' size lady. I'm also only 25 so want to keep it younger lol chasing a 2 year old as well!

    Any help would awesome! What's your go to winter outfit? What would you recommend? Pictures (just googled images lol) would be awesome as well!

    That was an essay haha. Thanks ladies!!

    I'm pretty basic dresser so for every day wear I live in jeans (a few different styles - skinny, straight leg, boy friend in different denim colours and black), a long sleeve top and cardigans.

    I'll add a scarf or a beanie for some colour if my cardi is a boring colour.. I mainly wear black tops to avoid sticky finger marks courtesy of my 2 year old.

    Depending on what the weather is like outside (live in the Snowys) I'll either throw on a vest, rain jacket or thicker jacket if I am heading out.

    I have two Columbia brand jackets I wear - one is a rain jacket and the other a long down one. They are great quality and well worth the $.

    I love Betty Basics for layering pieces.

    For something a bit fancier I have a few dresses with tights and long boots. I also have this cream wool coat which hardly ever gets worn because I am afraid to ruin it!

    Hi there, i love black jodhpur type pants with ankle boots and a short wool coat that covers yr upper thigh ( target always has nice ones reasonably priced) which you can wear a top underneath. Or instead of coat, a long chunky cardigan with scarf. A good trench coat is always an option. I have a black one and literally wear it everyday in winter.

    Have you looked at City Chic? They make some really sweet clothes.

    I'd start with black jeans, blue jeans, a longer (mid thigh length?) cardi and a structured leather jacket.
    You can easily mix the outfit up with different tops, scarves and shoes.

    Default Winter wardrobe?

    I've just pulled out a few of my winter dresses. I LOVE a knit dress! Sooo comfy and warm! Wear with leggings, boots or ballet flats and a cardi- long or short, chunky or slim. You can also add extra layers underneath for extra warmth. Mine are mostly like very long jumpers.

    I do shop at city chic a little bit but sometimes the prices scare me away haha. I think buying a few items to be able to mix up would work really well.

    A wrap/kit dress will hug some bumps.... But so what? Everybody has lumps and bumps. Be sure to buy a dress that is the right size (no squeezing into a too small size), wear the right underwear (good uplifting bra and undies that don't cut into squishy bits (high waist undies and good for this - I buy my undies from Kmart. Seam free, high waist, light support). Wear a nice jacket or big cardi and even a long scarf. Tights and boots too.

    Yeah most of them will. But if that's an issue you can always go with a long flowy cardigan over the top. Even with a belt over the cardi so everything is all nicely tucked away 😆
