When it comes to shopping for plus-size basics, it’s never been easier than now. Over the last few years, more and more fashion-forward retailers have expanded their size ranges after listening to consumers’ frustrations with a lack of size diversity. Cute plus-size clothing either used to be impossible to track down or just plain nonexistent back in the day, but brands like Mango and H&M have been ramping up their game, competing for a piece of the plus-size market share pie with multi-brand retailers like Nordstrom. The result? More and more chic and affordable clothing that everyone can try and buy.
Basics are the foundation of every closet, and now that plus-size elevated basics are commonplace, there’s plenty to choose from. Just like straight-size clothing, plus-size elevated basics are meant to go with everything and anything in your wardrobe.
