Now that New York Fashion Week has officially wrapped and I’ve had time to digest everything I saw, I’ve made a short list of things I’ll need to add to my wardrobe before fall. The first item on the top of that list? Mustard everything. The color popped up on the runways at BCBG Max Azria, Creatures of the Wind, and Marissa Webb, and now I need it to pop up in my closet.
Fortunately, the retail gods are smiling down upon me, and there are actually a ton of affordable, mustard-colored, plus-size pieces floating around out there… You just have to know where to look.
The following are 11 of the cutest (and most affordable!) pieces of mustard plus-size clothing.

I love the criss-cross straps on this dress. (Also loving the model’s hair! I’m eternally jealous of redheads.)
ModCloth Expert In Your Zeal Top, on sale for $30.99
I know this top looks like it runs in straight sizes, but rest assured, it’s available in 1X-4X.

Forever 21 Chiffon Shirred Top, $22.90
I went through a peasant blouse phase a few years ago, and when I finally came out on the other side, I swore I’d never wear another one again. It looks like I might be eating my words because I love this one from Forever 21.

Throwing on a pencil skirt is probably the quickest way to look pulled together. I love this one from ASOS Curve.
