Who says outerwear has to be all form and function and no frill? The season’s plus size coats give great ways to look stylishly hot when the temps go down.
Plus Size Coats
From coast to coast, October signals change. Leaves drop, pools close and skies grey – all signs that winter is upon us. Even in Cali and Florida temps moderate and beach water cools. Let’s face it, this time of year darn near everybody goes to the closet and dusts off last year’s warm clothes, including all the pea coats of yore.
This year why not freshen up that winter wardrobe with a hot new look? Super fashion-forward plus size coats from your favorite designers make it even easier to take the plunge. Military style continues to reign supreme, while deconstructed shapes, leathers and bold color also make the grade. Check out our favorite plus size coats and let us know which look you’ll be sporting.
A traditional topper style gets a fresh facelift with blazing color. And the generous shaping lends a certain vintage vibe to this plus size coat. Don’t let the bright blue scare you, this can definitely be an everyday coat. Picture it over jeans and a rockstar sweater for errands or over a pinstripe suit with heels for an important meeting. A sparkling gold cocktail dress underneath and it becomes part of a dazzling evening ensemble. Versatility thy name is Vince.
For those folks lucky enough to be in mild climates, a light jacket may be all the winter months require. But, still – better make it stylin’! The loosely constructed draping of this plus size coat creates a boho vibe while the clean nutty suede is beyond classy. And the longer length will separate this leather jacket from any old bomber or moto style. Find a skirt with the same hem length as the coat and you will have a flattering and hip silhouette.

Don’t know about you, but we’re sort of bored with the basic bubble and the overdone fleece. Still, a sporty plus size coat is key to every winter wardrobe. Tribal-inspired print meets typical quilting in Lauren’s very unique take on the varsity jacket. Sure, this could go with yoga pants for a chic-er way to dash from car to spinning class. But, you could really class this one up with a black mini and long-line tank with booties for warmer conditions or leather pants and a fitted sweater for cooler places.
