2022 Spring Plus Size Capsule Wardrobe

This post may contain affiliate links, which means I receive a commission if you choose to purchase through links I provide.

We love a good capsule wardrobe. A closet full of timeless staples mixed with a couple of unique pieces makes for the perfect 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 a plus size capsule wardrobe.

Plus Size Capsule Wardrobe Picks


Even in spring, the temperatures can be pretty cold. Plus here in the PNW, it is windy and rainy for a good part of the season. For outerwear, we went with a good trench coat, a casual utility jacket, and a cute denim 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’d recommend adding one fun top to this selection. Maybe a funky print or something sparkly. It’s up to you.

We stuck to blues, whites, and pinks to make sure everything went together while also having a spring feel. You can pick any colors you would like but we recommend sticking to two or three colors that work well together.

Some final thoughts…

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.
