You probably all know and love her dearly: Tess Holliday is one of the most iconic plus-size fashion models and influencers. She has been a huge part of the body positivity movement since 2014 and has made appearances on magazine covers like Cosmopolitan, SELF, and Parents. But the biggest thing people have been dying to know is: how can you dress like her? Most often, Holliday is wearing plus-size brands that we can all order from online, but let’s be honest, that stuff can be expensive and it’s not always what you want.

Here’s how to get Tess Holliday’s Look for under $150!

Look #1:

My finds:

Plus Leopard Print Belted Corduroy Dress
Shein
Black Faux Suede D'orsay Pointed Block Heel
Torrid
Black Fishnet Ankle Socks
Shein

If you’ve been following Tess for any length of time, you’ll know that she loves a good animal print and has a bit of a rock n’ rock vibe. That’s why we couldn’t resist adding in this outfit that’s super easy to re-create. While we couldn’t find a suitable sequin leopard print dress, the outfit is still hot. Don’t skimp on the fishnet socks either — they add in some major sexiness.

Look #2:

My finds:

Let's Move Along Midi Dress
FashionNova
Block Heel Mules in Coral
Joe Fresh

One of the things we love about Tess’ style is that she is not afraid of colour at all, or something that hugs her body. This is why we love how this dress fits all of her curves and serves beautifully. If you pair it with a contrasting shoe, like these coral mules from Joe Fresh, this outfit would be popping — figuratively and literally.

Look #3:

My finds:

Missguided Plus Oversized Denim Jacket
ASOS
Women+ Essential Tank
Joe Fresh
AE Ne(x)t Level Curvy Super High-Waised Short Short
American Eagle

Everyone wants a comfortable, casual look that they can feel good in. This is why it’s important to go digging around at places like Joe Fresh and American Eagle for basics like a jean jacket, and you can find them for cheap. From there, build up this Tess Holliday look out by adding in a tank and some short-shorts. This outfit is perfect for hot summer days, and honestly for showing off your gorgeous thighs. Best part: throw on your favourite pair of sneakers to add in a pop of colour and you can call it a day.

Look #4:

My finds:

Plus White Tie Waist Dalmatian Print Midi Dress
Pretty Little Thing
On the Rise Platform Heel
Nasty Gal

Tess is the type of person who doesn’t back down from taking risks with her fashion choses. If the rules say plus-size folks shouldn’t wear prints, she does it and she slays. This is why we love this dress on her. We found the exact one she’s wearing and it looks totally comfortable for the office or everyday life, and of course, it’s affordable too. 

Look #5:

My finds:

Simply Be Floral Print Wrap Dress
ASOS
Black Heeled Sandals
H&M

With the spring/summer time quickly approaching, florals are obviously going to make a big comeback. So of course, we were inspired by Tess Holliday’s love of florals for this outfit and we are obsessed with how cheery the print is. Add in a classic black sandal, a bright lip colour, and you’re good to go!
