The leaves are starting to turn, summer is fading away, and soon, there will be a chill in the air. But how can a plus size
woman stay warm? This season, there are some great plus size coats available from a host of plus size stores and catalogs. Let this be your guide.
Silhouettes’ Microfiber Trench. Available in sizes 12-38W, this plus size coat is an absolute classic. Made with a supple sueded polyester, it has a beautiful flow. It’s selling for less than $110, and the details are worth the price. A zip-out liner, raglan sleeves, angled pockets, a rain shield and a belt make this a fully-featured plus size coat. Plus, it’s available in stoic colors like black, sea mist, and mauve. But it makes a bold statement in fire-engine red. This coat is polished and will never go out of style. (It should be noted that Jessica London is also offering a plus size trench coat, in the same price range, but their plus size coat comes in very drab colors.)
Silhouettes’ Convertible-Collar Coat. Wow. That’s the first impression this wool coat makes in coral. At a versatile 3/4 length, this plus size coat is fully lined and has beautiful princess seams. But the loveliest details are the buttons at the sleeve-cuffs. At the time of this writing, this plus size coat is on sale for $140.
Jessica London’s Leather Zip Jacket. Make a statement in this sassy plus size coat. This plus size leather jacket has princess seaming for shape, on seam pockets to preserve a sleek profile, and a 29″ long hem to disguise anything a plus size woman might not feel comfortable about. It comes in a variety of colors, including an exciting burnt orange. And the zip front gives it a hard edge. Selling for less than $100, this plus size coat is a steal.
Jessica London’s Wool Coat. For a more timeless, traditional look, check out Jessica London’s plus size wool coat. It’s available in a host of sharp colors, but those without children or pets will naturally gravitate to the stark beauty of the winter white. This plus size coat is offered in sizes 14W-34W, and tall, petite, and average lengths. It’s selling for about $130 at the upper range. This plus size coat has a single-breasted button front, a back walking vent, and is fully lined. With all the details that make a superior plus size coat, this is a superior choice.
Avenue’s Basket weave Coat. And if you’re having winter white fantasies, look no further than this unusual plus size coat by the Avenue. The basket weave pattern brings a lot of textural interest to the garment, and the belt helps to create an hour glass figure. At about $150, it’s pretty pricey for a plus size coat.
Roaman’s Motorcycle Jacket. For something funkier, consider Roaman’s Motorcycle Jacket in avocado. When it comes to plus size leather coats, Roamans probably has the widest selection available. And this season is no exception. This plus size coat has zipper details, a short waist, and is even available in ivory. But it’s pricey, so make sure you’re feeling feisty enough to afford this plus size coat.
JMS’ Faux Leather Blazer. And if you can’t afford real leather, but still want that crisp lintless look in a plus size coat, it’s worth considering JMS. Their faux leather blazer is expertly styled, comes in a variety of fun colors, and sells for less than $40. The drawback? This plus size coat is made of washable PVC. It insulates like crazy. It’ll keep you warm against the elements, but once you’re inside, you’ll be sweating like mad.
