Winter Wardrobe Staples from Simply Be.

*Advertisement Feature*

Whilst I may not be such a big fan of the cold weather, my winter wardrobe has to be my favourite! I love getting to pull on oversized chunky knit jumpers and warm cosy boots for the school run and not forgetting cosying up under a huge duvet with a hot chocolate.

As a curvy woman finding comfortable but still stylish clothes can often feel like a struggle especially when it comes to finding some decent wardrobe staples. However since finding Simply Be I never struggle as they have such a large range of sizes up to size 32. They also stock a great range of extra wide fit/ eee fit shoes and boots which is definitely a must for me.

I have been browsing through the Simply Be range over the last few days as the winter creeps up on us and so today I wanted to share with you some of my absolute favourite winter wardrobe staples from the Simply Be website.


A decent pair of boots are most definitely my most useful winter staple. In the summer I practically live in sandals or plimsole style trainers so when the cold sweeps in my feet get really cold and I know its time to fish out my boots.

I always think, when it comes to footwear that you will wear quite often its worth investing in some good quality ones just like these Fleur leather boots priced at £85.00. The boots have been created with inspiration from 3D technology – giving the best and comfiest fit possible. The legs have been sculpted to fit the curve of a true leg shape, with a better fitting ankle also. They are available in a wide e fit and have comfort and fit in mind without compromising on style. 

I think boots are my go to footwear in winter because not only are they warm but they go with pretty much everything! I often wear my boots with jeans, leggings and tops as well as dresses with tights and they really do go with everything. 

Chunky Knit Cardigan

Chunky knits and oversized cardigans are literally one of my favourite bits about winter! There is just something so great about being able to throw on an oversized jumper or cardigan and feel so warm and cosy but it still be totally acceptable to leave the house wearing it!

There are lots to choose from on the Simply Be website and this Vero Moda chunky knit cardigan in grey marl immediately caught my eye. The all over textured design and turned up cuffs make this cardigan both comfy, warm and versatile, it also has really handy pockets.

The longer length makes it perfect to wear with both jeans and leggings, I don't think I would want to take it off all winter!


Every woman needs a good pair of jeans in her wardrobe and finding a good pair of jeans can be even more of a challenge when you are a curvier woman like myself. I often find that they are too long, too tight or too baggy and it can be really frustrating. However Simply Be have us curvy women in mind and have a fab range of jeans in a variety of styles, colours and lengths.

I fell in love with the style of these jeans, the deep indigo colour is really versatile and the bootcut fit looks great of so many shapes and sizes. But that's not all, these jeans have a hidden secret! They shape and sculpt your body when you wear them! The multidirectional stretch denim works with your curves to help retain their shape, meanwhile Tencel helps provide maximum comfort. The hidden sculpting control panel to the front promises to flatten your tummy, meanwhile the intelligent seaming to the bottom helps lift your derriere and create the illusion of a rounder, peachier bottom!

These jeans can be taken from day to night, school run to meal out with a few simple changes making them a must have wardrobe staple.


Anyone who knows me will know that I pretty much always wear dresses! Summer, winter, playdates or days out I can always find a dress for the occasion and usually pair it with some simple black leggings. So when winter rolls around I still love to fill my wardrobe with lots of dresses that I can pair with leggings or thick tights.

When I spotted this Joe Browns tea for two dress available exclusively to Simply Be in sizes 20-32 I fell in love! The black material adorned with a variety of brightly coloured small flower details make this dress super pretty and feminine. It features a soft frill detailing and a beautiful, shape-enhancing silhouette which is really flattering. 

I think the flattering half sleeve length make it great for colder weather and the length is perfect for pairing with some thick woolly tights and ankle boots. Just because winter is coming it doesn't mean us dress lovers have to give us our dresses! 

So the pieces above are my must have staples, although I have to admit with so many beautiful items of clothing to choose from on the Simply Be website it was really tough to choose. If budget was unlimited I am pretty sure I could have filled several wardrobes!

The most important thing to remember when getting your wardrobe winter ready is to never lose your personality. Simply Be have such a great range you are sure to find something that you love and will keep you looking stylish without compromising on your own personal style.
