I get it, finding the perfect outfit for winter can be challenging if you’re a mid-size lady. But does that mean impossible? Hell no!
With some clever styling tips here and there, you can look flattering in bulky winter clothes effortlessly.
Ahead, I’ve gathered 10 mid-size winter outfit ideas to level up your next winter wardrobe.
From feminine looks to bougie styles, I’ve got you covered. And of course, that includes all the styling tips to look taller and slimmer as a mid-size.
So now, let’s jump right in and enjoy!
1. Semi formal Mid-size winter outfits
When it comes to winter fashion, you don’t have to sacrifice fun for formality.
A sweater and pleated midi skirt with stylish leopard print flats are such a classic look.
That said since a pleated skirt can easily add volume, slightly tucking your sweater for a cropped look can always give you the right balance.
It just makes you look taller visually even in flats.
This look is great for any formal event or night out on the town. Plus, it’s perfect for colder temperatures since you can layer up and still look stylish!
2. Wear a side silt dress as mid-size
If you want to look put together with a midi sweater dress and sneakers, I’d say go for the dress with side silt or front silt.
That inverted V line will draw eyes vertically and shed down the heaviness of the lower body.
The best part? This can make your legs appear to be longer and thinner even in sneakers.
3. Sweater dress x black tights
For the ladies who gravitate toward oversized sweaters, I’d say go for it! It just looks effortlessly sassy without even trying.
To look flattering on your legs, go for the sheer black tights that work wonders for you.
Together with the black combat boots, this combo just can’t be any more forgiving.
If you want to add a bit of sparkle, try to add a thick headband for an eye-catching touch.
4. Mid-size fashion: Structured coat
Instead of going for the baggy teddy coat, a structured coat is way more flattering for my mid-size ladies.
The sleek cut and thick fabric just cinch in your silhouette and make you feel put together in an instant.
Together with the flared pants and pointy pumps, this is how your rock the look to your full potential!
For an extra special touch, add some faux fur trim for a truly luxurious feel. And guess what, that can easily make your eyes appear to be smaller.
5. Prints and Patterns
If you’re feeling bold, embrace some eye-catching prints and patterns in your mid-size winter wardrobe. From plaid to classy houndstooth, the options are literally endless.
That said, small prints (photo on right) will work better than large prints (photo on right) if you want to stay away from the exaggerating effect.
Or else, you can pair the big bold prints with solids like a black pencil dress to balance things off! Just equally flattering.
6. Forgiving Elegance look for mid-size
Want to hide the tummy without compromising style? Well, a peplum dress is your best bet!

That extra stripe of fabric just camoflage the belly in the best possible way. And guess what, it just fake an hourglass figure with those flares.
Seriously, whenever I have a date night, 90% of you will find me wearing a peplum dress. Such a confidence booster.
7. Rock That Hat
Want to dress up the look? Rock a hat and team it with your outerwear or top!
As a round shape face girl, I will avoid wearing beanies and wear the wide-beam hat instead. I just find that way more flattering and slimming.
8. Baddie Mid size style
Who said you can’t wear pastels and bright hues in winter times? I mean, fashion is always about being adventurous and trying out new things!
To get this look right, a cropped puffer jacket is crucial here.
Since patterns will draw attention to the part, you want something “heavy” for the top to balance out your plaid pants.
Also, make sure your sweater can’t be longer than the cropped jacket, otherwise, you will easily stay in the frumpy zone. Don’t do that.
9. Casual mid-size fashion
When it comes to the chilly days (in which we have zero motivation to style), comfort comes first.
To look good in sweatpants, go for the form-fitting one so you can team it with boots to dress things up.
Also, pair up your turtleneck top and boots in similar hues so you can enjoy that literally head-to-toe elongating effect in this casual look. You’re welcome!
This is so random… BUT
10. Vintage mid-size outfits
Try pairing some high-waisted boyfriend jeans with an oversized blouse for a vintage-inspired look.
I must say pairing up a white turtleneck with a slightly oversized sweater vest looks so stylish and refreshing.
No matter your style, I hope these 10 mid-size winter outfits get you inspired!
With a bit of creativity and some extra styling tips, you can create looks that are both fashionable and functional. So go ahead and level up your winter wardrobe today!
