The Best Plus Size Capsule Wardrobe For Fall

We love a good capsule wardrobe. Not only is a capsule wardrobe cost-effective but it is an environmentally-friendly way to look great every day. When you can shop in most stores, it is easy to build a cute and affordable capsule wardrobe. However, building a capsule wardrobe using plus-sized pieces is MUCH more difficult. So to help a sister out, we scoured the internet far and wide to put together the best plus size capsule wardrobe for fall.

Depending on where you live, the temperatures can fluctuate daily during the fall. Here in the PNW, the temperatures don’t change that much day to day. However, the weather won’t get cool until October, and then the rainy season will start. For outerwear, we went with a casual utility jacket, a cute denim jacket, and a hooded raincoat. If you live somewhere with less rain, you could switch out the raincoat for a leather jacket or a blazer.

Utility Jacket: Madewell Utility Jacket // Old Navy // JCPenney

Denim Jacket: Madewell // Cropped Jean Jacket

Hooded Raincoat: J.Crew Rain Jacket // Target Rain Jacket

Shirts, Sweaters, and Tees

Who here has 50 shirts but only wears a handful of them? We know we used to be guilty of this.

For our capsule, we wanted to make sure we had enough options for tops while also not going overboard.

We stuck to neutrals but added some earthy greens to make sure everything went together while also having a fall feel. You can pick any colors you would like but we recommend sticking to two or three colors that work well together.

Sweater: JCrew Sweater // Target Sweater // Target Crewneck Sweater

Cardigan: Madewell // Old Navy // Target Open Front Cardigan

Print: Anthropologie Buttondown // Old Navy Floral // Target Floral

Long Sleeve Tee Shirt: Old Navy // Land’s End

Stripe: JCrew Striped Shirt // Old Navy Stripe

Puff Sleeve: JCrew Puff Sleeve // Eloquii Puff Sleeve


Most of the pants and jeans that you already own will match well with the clothes in this capsule. Here we just selected our favorites in case you are needing to fill a gap in your wardrobe.

Black Pants: ModCloth Paperbag // H&M Paperbag // Old Navy Jeans

Dark Wash Jeans: Universal Standard Skinny // Target Trouser Pant

Relaxed: Madewell Momjean // Eloquii Distressed // Old Navy Boyfriend


Here at Feisty Life Media, we have always been fans of dresses. One-piece and you are dressed. We recommend an easy to wear day dress and one dress that is a touch dressier.

Wrap Style: Target Wrap Dress // Old Navy Faux Wrap Dress

Dressier Dress: Anthropologie Maxi // Anthropologie Pleated Midi

Handbags and Totes

When it comes to bags we keep things down to a minimum. For fall, we highly recommend having one bag that goes with everything.

Tote: Madewell Ziptop Tote // Target Version


When it comes to shoes, we will always choose comfort over style. Our go-to shoes are always flat or low heeled, perfect for running errands or chasing around kiddos.

Wide Calf Boots: Naturilizer // Born // David Tate

Comfy Flats: Rockport // Vionic // Target Flats

Tennis Shoe: ECCO // Converse // Asos

Your Plus Size Capsule Wardrobe For Fall

Because a capsule wardrobe is filled with staples to wear throughout this season and the next, we opted for higher quality pieces as our first choice. But because we understand that not everyone has a large budget, we included affordable options as much as possible. To make your capsule more affordable, bring your shopping list with you to consignment and thrift shops.

Also don’t feel like you need to buy new clothes to fill your capsule for the season. Assess your current wardrobe and pull from items you already have. Next, identify any gaps. Finally, make a shopping list for the items you truly need.
