Now is a great time to go coat shopping! All this season’s hottest coats are still available and now on sale too. You’ve got to get them quick before all the best colors and sizes are gone!
Here’s a guide to the 5 best plus size coat shapes to keep you warm and cozy this winter in style.
1. Knee Length Down Coat
For cold climates, this coat is a must, especially with a hood. Lots of stores and brands have puffer coats available right now but it’s best to stick with a tried and true option to stay warm. Many cheaper options have much less down fill, not to mention unflattering shapes.
We love the Michael Kor Hooded Faux-Fur-Trim Puffer Coat. The key for any coat is to accentuate the waste for a feminine fit that doesn’t make you look like a refrigerator. It is so easy to looks pulled together in any weather with winter weight tights and knee high snow boats.
2. Knee Length Wool Coat
Wool looks thin but is ultra warm for winter (it’s all they wear in winter NYC in Law and Order!). For extra cold climates, an ankle length coat will make you feel like you’re in a walking sleeping bag but for most places knee length is fine.
I love the peacoat but they are too thick and boxy for anyone with curves. These blazer-type cuts are so flattering and come in a range of colors. Keep the great V-neckline by wearing this coat with a cosy cashmere scarf. We love the Lands’ End Luxe Wool Swing Car Coat.
3. Fashion Statement
For a few months, your coat is going to be seen by everyone so why not make a fashion statement? This gorgeous color block coat is similar to the one Julia Roberts was recently spotted in. A coat doesn’t have to be curve-hugging to be flattering and this is good choice for apple shapes.
On the bottom, the Nine West Plus Size Wool-Blend Colorblock Car Coat is best worn with skirts, legging, and skinny jeans.
4. Luxurious Fur
Every woman should enjoy wearing fur at some point. Don’t freak out, PETA! Faux far has come a long way and is a gorgeous and ultra warm option. This Gallery Hooded Faux Fur Walking Coat combines plus velvety faux fur with contrasting tiered faux mink fur trim.
This is a fabulous coat to wear to holiday parties or stay warm in style everyday.
5. The Coat Upgrade
Layering is the key to staying comfortable when the temperatures dip. If you already have a fall or spring weight coat you love, get it winterized by adding a vest underneath! This Women’s Mighty Lite III Vest by Columbia is ultra thin and light and comes in a range of colors.
Plus you’ll get a ton more use out of this item. It’s perfect for walks in the spring or fall, camping or cottage time, or any time you need some extra warmth.
