I may prefer the warm summer air, but what woman doesn’t love a perfectly crafted booted fall look?!

Fit and Shopping Tips for Plus-Size Women

When shopping for fall outer pieces, keep in mind that fit is almost as important as style.Make sure you leave enough room under that autumn coat you have been eying for your sweaters and undershirts. Check that you are able to move your arms around comfortably in the coat; Robot arms were so two seasons ago. If this means you have to buy the size up, don’t hesitate! Nobody cares about the number on your tag when you’re looking confident and glamorous in your new jacket.

If during your fall shopping you get the choice to go long or short, I hope you go long! Short jackets can look boxy and have a widening effect. For a slimmer, thinner look long is certainly the winner.

Plus-Size Trench Coats

Fall trenches are back and complimenting waistlines for women of all shapes and sizes. Belted trenches are particularly plus-size friendly for their ability to highlight our natural curves while providing a slimming effect. Another benefit of this style is versatility. A trench can be professional, casual, trendy, or edgy. Use your accessorizing skills to make your trench conform to your style or day!

Plus-Size Leather Jackets

Can plus-size women pull off the notorious leather jacket look? YOU BETCHA. Leather can be practical, fashionable, and affordable no matter what your size or your wallet has to say about it. When it comes to all things leather I have some personal preferences I hope will be helpful to you guys.

First things first, I’m a fauxist. While I have nothing against those who wear real leather, I find that the “fake” stuff can still maintain quality without breaking my bank account. Fake doesn’t have to look cheap, use your best judgment to find a piece that meets your aesthetic needs without having to raise your credit limit or hurt an animal in the process.

Secondly, I tend to gravitate towards thinner (faux) leather designs. The heavy and thick bomber style jackets make me feel bulky and weighed down. Try a lighter and softer option on your next shopping adventure to optimize comfort without neglecting style.

Plus-Size Plaid Coats

It’s time to rethink plaid! No longer is this the pattern of catholic school uniforms everywhere, but the fall 2014 IT pattern. And let’s not assume the black and white tradition of the past, because plaid is not only back but it is more colorful than ever! Try the single-breasted wool jacket look to satisfy your plaid needs. As a plus size woman I tend to favor single-breasted vs. double-breasted, as the ladder makes me look and feel wider. I opt for a plus-size single-breasted jacket to achieve a thinner, slicker look.

All right ladies, now that you are equipped with all the necessary fall outer tips; you can get out there and buy yourself a nice, short, undersized, double-breasted plaid leather trench! No but seriously, do you even listen? Check out some of these suggested online shopping links below and start putting your trendy brains and frugal wallets to use!
