Back in the day, I used to pick out my back to school outfit days in advance. Everything had to be perfect to make the right impression. Nowadays, my own kids feel the same way! I can not tell you how many outfits my oldest kid went through before she finally picked the outfit that inspired this post today.
When you are fat or plus size, the process to find the right outfit to enter the new school year is even more dramatic. My advice? Take a deep breath, get some Zen, and don’t worry because your girl, Gigi got your back with not only one by two back to school plus size outfit inspirations that are super easy to put together and will make you look like the diva you are!
First is this mustard coloured t-shirt dress from Forever 21. The thing I love most about these type of dresses is that you can easily dress them up or dress them down. No matter which option you choose, your outfit is always on point!
To wear over the t-shirt dress is this badass leather leopard print moto jacket from Eloquii. Protip: A moto jacket is a simple way to jazz up any outfit! Moto jackets always add a bit of James Dean to your style. It’s one of the many reasons I’m such a huge fan of them.

To take this outfit up a notch, I added these a pair of awesome combat boots from Torrid! The thing I love most about these boots is that they come in wide width and they look super comfortable. You guys know that comfort for me is always the biggest factor in putting together an outfit.
And as always accessories are my favourite. First up is this gold layered chain necklace from Romwe. I don’t always gush about brands (okay; I do it a little) but Romwe has become my go-to place for cheap but fantastic statement jewellery. This necklace gives me mad Madonna feels. Then finally, the cherry on the top of this rock-n-roll inspired outfit is these studded gold hoops from Nordstrom.
This outfit is as different as the first as night and day. While the first look was all about looking badass, this one is a preppy plus size outfit inspiration! First up is this simple 3/4th sleeve white blouse from ModCloth. However, the magic comes with this plus size tweed pinafore skirt from SHEIN. The moment I saw this skirt I just knew I had to add it to this ootd!
Next is the shoes: for me, once again it’s all about comfort! When you are going to school, you are constantly walking everywhere and walking a lot in high heels will kill your feet. With that in mind, I chose these mustard colour block kitten heels from Zappos. These are so cute and honestly, you can wear them with any outfit. I also choose these sandals in this yellow mustard colour because I wanted to play with mixing and matching colours without being too matchy-matchy.

But you are probably like, “Gigi these shoes only go up to size 10 and my feet are wide?” Don’t worry! Here is a nice, very cute alternative is these mustard flats from Modcloth (I love, love, LOVE Modcloth)! They totally come in wide-with and they look super comfortable too.
Finally, the accessories. First up are these simple gold hoop earrings and gold circle necklace from Nordstroms. But my favourite accessory in this outfit is this super adorable powder blue backpack purse from 55Mulbery. I love the little gold details so much. It just adds a little touch of pizazz to this basic backpack.
Well, I gave you two fantastic outfit inspiration that is so simple to put on and will make you turn heads whenever you go back to school. What do you think? Do you love them or hate them? Let me know down in the comments!
