During the winter months, I pretty much live in jeans and leggings. Occasionally, I’ll hit the office in a pair of dressier pants, but for the most part, I’m squeezed into tight-fitting denim and spandex. And sometimes, I just get tired of it. If your legs are also begging to be freed—but still covered, because it’s cold out there—cute plus-size winter maxi dresses are here to answer all your sartorial prayers.
Maxi dresses are great for so many reasons, but during winter, they’re the ideal outfit for when you just don’t want to wear pants anymore. You can free your legs from their skinny jean prisons while, at the same time, keeping them away from the cold. It’s a win/win situation all around. Styling maxi dresses for winter is so simple, too. Just pair any maxi dress with a cute puffer coat and boots or high-top sneakers, and you’re in business. Legs are freed, but you’re still feelin’ cozy.
Plus, maxi dresses look good on literally everyone. If you feel like you can’t wear something just because you wear plus sizes, I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong as hell, babe. I’ve shied away from so many styles (TBH, I still do sometimes) just because I was afraid other people would think, “Oh, she shouldn’t be wearing that. She’s too fat for that outfit.” But you know what? I’m done with that fatphobic shit. We all deserve to wear whatever we want—and to feel amazing while doing it.
So don’t shy away from winter maxi dresses, loves, because I’ve rounded up 21 of them. They’re all cute, and a bunch of them can transition into spring—just remove your coat and add some sandals. You’re gonna look amazing all year long.
