Spring Brunch Outfit: Plus Size Fashion

Samara Gentle

What comes to mind when you think spring? It may be a month or so away, but there’s no harm in dreaming about warmer mornings during this freezing week and planning ahead!

When I think spring I think brunch with a slightly alcoholic drink, boyfriend jeans and crisp white shirts, cold champagne and late warm nights.

Spring feels so casual, so lazy and effortless. Why not let your fashion reflect that?

My go to spring brunch outfit would be uber comfy boyfriend jeans rolled up, a clean white shirt, flat comfy shoes and delicate jewellery. As a plus size shopper these basics are easy to find at most shops, the trick finding the right fitting pair of both jeans and shirt. Just like any size, your shape can be different and finding things to fit your shape can be difficult.


I’m a cross between hourglass and apple and finding jeans can be a struggle, I picked up these boyfriend jeans from Lane Bryant in New York and are my go to for casual and comfy! Good fitting t-shirts can also be tricky and I have to say I’m yet to find a t-shirt that fits my shape perfectly, but this one is okay and does the trick for this casual outfit.

The trick with casual is to then add your own flair with accessories – a statement bag, shoes, lipstick, jewellery.

I’m personally in love with these flats from Rubi shoes and they go with any casual outfit. I also am in love with jewellery from Wink so I layer two of them with my Tiffany & Co necklace for a delicate mixed tone jewellery look.


Then THE BAG. My 2014 Christmas present to myself, it has a strap (which I’ve taken off) and little handles, I love this bag. It’s chic, simple, effective and the perfect size.
