Pinup, Vintage Inspired and Quirky Plus Size Clothing

Spring = renewal, right? I love taking the opportunity to refresh and upgrade my closet. Modcloth plus size clothing are the perfect brand to add color and fun to my wardrobe.

Have you ever checked out Modcloth?

This brand specializes in colorful, quirky, and vintage-inspired clothing. It checks all the boxes on my list! Check out my favorite plus-size outfits below! Sizes up to 28.

Orange is such a fun, bright color, perfect for brightening up your spring (don’t forget that it’s the cousin of the 2019 Pantone Color of the Year). This dress is the perfect cut to dress up or down, AND to help you easily switch between warm days and cold evenings by throwing on a jacket.

This dress is remarkable for weekend shenanigans, or wearing it to work with a blazer or cardigan.

I would pair this with some fabulous statement earrings like these rainbow drop earrings. You also absolutely must check out these world map flats that go up to a size 13! This dress also comes in a fabulous mint green or a navy polka dotted version. Available in sizes 14 – 30 UK (12 – 28 US).


Yes, yes, I know – not my classic bright, colorful style, but I just couldn’t resist adding this seemingly perfect carrier for bold colors and accessories! Jumpsuits have recently entered my closet and have become a permanent staple.

This jumpsuit has the perfect straps for me because it looks like it can be put on alone! I hate when I need to have someone zip me up. It’s a classic knit with deep POCKETS!

Think of this with some yellow butter cup flats or sexy red velvet heels. There are so many earrings and necklaces that you go perfect like there drop cherry earrings or these dangling geometric babies. Available in sizes XXS – 4X.

I’m an avid foodie and absolutely love cooking, so when I saw this skirt I knew I had to share it with you! Bell peppers add amazing flavor to every dish and this bell pepper skirt adds color and fabulousness to any closet.

I love the skater-style hitting above the knee, with a flare to the shape and the wide waistband. This skirt is also available in a pastel floral that is surprisingly thrilling (floral gets a bad rap in plus-size fashion, I know).

I’d wear this with a simple green shirt and green flats to let the bold colors of the skirt shine. A chunky warm-colored necklace would really punch it up, too! Available in sizes XS – 4X.



Brilliant, right? This perfect spring raincoat can brighten even the grayest of days. Most folks talk about the renewal of spring boosting them up, but I always get let down by all the rainy days.

Jackets like this help me see the bright side and get through it! The length makes me so happy: just covering your butt so you can protect it from the rain, too.

While this red stole my heart, it also comes in a bold yellow. The red can be worn on top of anything. I’d say it’s a neutral in that way. Perfect to be thrown on when headed to brunch or running out to get to the office on time. Versatile and a true spring staple. Sizes XXS – 4X.


Modcloth is known for its pinup style and vintage-inspired clothing. I’m a sucker for polka dots. My favorite thing about this dress besides the obvious is that it’s not a halter top, like so many vintage-inspired dresses.

The vertically striped darts add a little bit of a razzle dazzle element to this dress (any WW2 warship fans out there?).

Being a navy blue, this would pair well with the classic red, or if you want to step out of the box a little try pairing it with yellow or hot pink. I love these red vintage pumps or these flat mustard yellow babies. Available in sizes 00 – 28.

This dress is so much fun! For a nice twist on classic, these yellow oxfords would really work well with this. These simple butterfly wing gold earrings will compliment but not take away to much attention from this stunner of a dress.

You could also pull out the blue in the dress with these navy blue flats – available up to a 13W! – and a cute matching purse. So many color options makes this dress really versatile, no matter what your fav color is! The dress is available in sizes XS – 4X.

Yellow pants are just so bold and gutsy. I’d think of these as a natural, sort of like leopard print, and pair it with anything you dream up. They scream spring and sunshine, and are just the right length. Paired with a printed top like it’s styled in the photo, the yellow is so bright it tones the busy scene down.

Imagine it also with an equally brightly colored top like this cute collared blouse in red. White shoes and chunky earrings or headband and you’ll be turning heads and grabbing compliments! Pants available in sizes 00 – 28.


Pastel beauty with suspenders? What a lovely way to uplift what could be a simple skirt. It’s a high-waisted look, so I would wear it with a white crop top underneath. Also, pockets anyone? The straps are removable so it you like to switch it up you always have the options!

Accessories would be the key to tying this outfit together.  Purple is a fabulous color to wear with this teal, so I’d check out these green, purple and navy earrings for a nice contrast. I’m also really liking these orange floral earrings as a good pairing. Jumper skirt available in sizes 4 – 30 UK (2 – 28 US).
