We interviewed transgender and non-binary people that self-identify as fat about their opinions on androgyny in fat fashion.
Fall is just around the corner, and I, for one, am excited! Fall is my favorite season by far, and with it comes cooling temperatures, falling leaves, and colorful foliage. Fall is arguably the best season for fashion too, and this season, I’m seeing so many fab new styles cropping up that my wallet is in serious danger!
With fall merchandise already starting to hit stores, it can be too tempting not to start picking up some new pieces for the fall season. It’s still hot everywhere, but if you’re like me, you can’t wait until it gets cooler to start wearing your new finds. The trick is to find ways of incorporating your new fall pieces into your current summer wardrobe.
Here are FIVE Plus Size Fall Trends To Wear NOW AND LATER!!!
Sporty, athletic-inspired looks are a MAJOR trend this fall, and it’s a perfect trend to give your weekend or other casual looks a bit of a facelift.
Try a varsity bomber jacket now with a pair of denim shorts, a skater skirt, or over a midi dress. Pair track pants or joggers with your favorite tank or crop top and a pair of heels for a sexy, but laid-back evening look. Or try a sporty mini dress with sneakers. Sneakers are having a major moment in fashion. This is THE season for comfy footwear, so take advantage!!
Come fall, it will be all about the layering. Layer that varsity bomber jacket over a pair of denim overalls for casual chic, or work that varsity bomber with a pair of skinny jeans, a body suit, and some sexy heels for a laid-back date night.

Real or faux, leather will be everywhere this fall. While leather is often a staple for cooler weather, you can definitely rock leather in warmer temps too!
Try a floral button down top tucked into a leather skirt, or pair a leather tee with a pair of silky shorts and heels for an easy, breezy look. A leather vest will provide a stylish extra layer with a mini dress and wedge sneakers without making you sweat.
When the weather starts to cool, a plus size leather moto jacket layered over EVERYTHING will keep you warm and stylish at the same time. Throw on an oversized cardigan sweater or blazer over the floral top and leather skirt and pair with tights and ankle booties for a cute daytime look. That same floral button-down can be paired with leather leggings for the weekend.

Sheer and other see through fabrics are a big trend this fall, and they work for both casual and evening looks. From sporty to evening wear, this accent has taken center stage and I like this.
Try a sheer heel with your favorite summer dress to give your old dress new life. Pair a mesh sweatshirt with a crop top and denim shorts for casual cuteness, or try a sheer maxi dress or a dress with illusion panels with flats or heels.
Those sheer heels will look amazing with a velvet suit or sparkly dress for all the upcoming holiday parties (yes, that time of year is coming soon!). Pair a sheer dress over skinny pants for a straight-from-the-runway look. For a laid-back look with plenty of style, try that mesh or sheer sweatshirt with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a leather moto jacket, and sneakers or heels.

In the prints department, expect to see tons of floral prints and plaids. These classic prints are easy to wear and help add more visual interest to all of your solid basics.
Wear a plaid or floral tee now with a skater skirt, jeans, or shorts and cap the look off with your favorite flat sandals for a no-fuss look. Try a floral dress with heels for a pretty date look. A plaid vest can be worn now, paired with a mini-dress or skinny jeans and a tank.
Add an oversized cardigan and knee-high boots to that floral or plaid dress for the perfect weekend casual look. Those plaid and floral tees can be paired under suits for work, or with jeans and sweaters. Mix floral and plaid patterns for a romantic grunge look.

Jumpsuits have been popular for the last few seasons, and there doesn’t appear to be any signs that this trend is letting up. If you haven’t tried a jumpsuit yet, now is the time to give these stylish onesies a try!
A jumpsuit can work now for day or night. Pair a black jumpsuit with a sexy pair of strappy heels for a sleek evening look, or try a printed romper with flat sandals for daytime chic. A lightweight cardigan can stave off air-condition chill.
Take that jumpsuit into crisp fall weather by pairing it with a cute cropped jacket. Pair a bright color with your black jumpsuit for an unexpected fall color palette. For an on-trend, fall-ready twist, add a cropped jacket with leather details and open-toe booties to a printed jumpsuit.
