7 Practical & Fashion Plus Size Coats

Keeping warm in the winter used to look a little bit like this for me; an ugly, but practical oversized jacket that almost always ruined whatever outfit I had underneath. I couldn’t wait to take it off whenever I got to my location. Even then, I’d have this big, honking thing on my arm all night and I just loathed it. For a very long time, I would dread the colder months because of the plus size winter coats alone. Nothing ever looked the way I wanted, both on and off my body. Thankfully though, plus size coats have come a long way since my youth (or even 5 years ago). A lot more clothing companies are putting their best foot forward and making plus size coats we can both practically wear in the cold and feel fashionable in. Now, I find myself lusting over plus size coats more than ever before. Below, you’ll find 7 different practical and fashion plus size coats I’m lusting over. Just for the fun of it, I’ve styled each coat with other outerwear (ie: gloves, scarf, hat) as well!

Coat / Gloves / Scarf

I’ve been eyeing this plus size coat for a really, really long time now and even though its sold out in my size, I can still fantasize about how I’d wear it. Doesn’t it just look so precious BUT also warm and cozy? Pairing it with this faux fur pink scarf and brown gloves sounds like a dream!

 

Coat / Gloves / Earmuffs

I can personally attest to how incredible this plus size coat is because your girl owns this beauty! The faux fur is so cozy, but its also the warmest and most comfortable coat I currently own. Protip: size up in this plus size coat because I found it runs a little bit small.

 

Jacket / Scarf / Gloves

I’m such a fan of this jacket because it looks like your basic moto jacket but its also practical as hell. If you take a look at the website, you’ll quickly notice that it looks like a quilted blanket up close. I love that its multi-tone black as well, because that makes it easier to style black on it. I love the idea of wearing a huge, colourful scarf with this and since its black, there’s so many options!

Trench Coat / Gloves / Scarf

I couldn’t go without mentioning this Lark & Ro trench coat because it truly has changed my life. Again, I do own this plus size coat so I can personally tell you how incredible it is. Whether you get black or beige, classic black gloves and a scarf will be the best accessory. Protip: This coat runs HELLA large so size down. Its also incredible long, so be mindful of that if you do decide to buy it!

 

Jacket / Gloves / Hat

Now, some might fight me on how practical this coat is but hear me out first. It’s a reversible jacket, which you’ll see by clicking the link above, which means more ways to wear it! Personally, I’d almost always wear the faux fur side out but imagine that fur being your lining. How comfortable and WARM would you be? I’d pair this with accessories that were a bit more over the top, yanno, to match the feel of the coat and all!

Coat / Hat

One of the major reasons I love this coat so much is because it comes in so many different colours. Above are just two of the options you get, but there’s five total to pick from. This coat looks heavy, comfortable and warm but incredibly stylish at that. Pair it with a cute pom pom beret, and you’ve got yourself quite a look!

Coat / Scarf

Another coat I’m lucky enough to own and personally vouch for! I own this beauty in stone (which is sold out online) and I have no been able to stop wearing it since I put it on my body. Its the comfiest, warmest coat ever AND it looks hella good on the body too. One of my favourite aspects of it, though, has to be the giant faux fur hood. I’m telling you, there’s just nothing quite like the feeling of having this one.

 

Thats it for my practical yet fashionable plus size coat list, you guys! I could go on and on and on but I didn’t want to overwhelm you all. What are some of your favourite plus size coats this season? Let me know in the comments below!

Apple Bottom

If you’re a long time follower of my blog, prepare yourself for what I’m about to say because this might come as a shock. As it turns out, I.. am actually.. into wearing plus size jeans these days. I’ve realized their true potential, their purpose in fashion AND how to style them. Its only taken me 30 long years and plenty of mistakes but I’m finally on board with the rest of you all. I’m really digging working plus size jeans and EVEN pants into my outfits more lately, and just in time for the cold weather. I guess they’re a bit more practical than wearing skirts and tights all winter, huh?

Autumn Babe

Surprise bitch, I bet you thought you’d seen the last of me! I’m still pumping out Autumn themed OoTDs but that’s also just because I’ve been sick with the flu this past week and have no other content to post. So forgive me if you’re over Halloween themed, I promise I have holly jolly outfits to come!

Black Cat

It’s Halloweek, you guys, so expect all things Halloween until the big day! I finally lived out my dream of finally visiting Salem, MA in the month of October and although I got there too late to check out the local attractions, I still dressed up. I’ve been saving my black cat Unique Vintage dress for the right occasion, and I think roaming around the streets of Salem was the right place. My friend Hayley and I checked out some spooky sites, ate delicious food and got our tarot cards read at the oldest witch shop in Salem. All in all, it was a great day!

Worst Witch

With just over a week away until Halloween, I’m letting my festive spirit take over. I find myself wanting to put a spooky spin on just about every outfit I wear. Thankfully, I received this gorgeous Renaissance dress from Dare to Wear just in time for the holiday.

Before, I do my usual outfit breakdown, I wanted to talk to you about Dare to Wear. As I mentioned above, I was recently approached to collaborate with this romantic, Vicotorian-inspired clothing company.  So rarely do we see this sort of fashion available for plus size bodies like mine, so it was a real treat to have them pop up in my inbox. If you haven’t already checked out the website by now, its worth mentioning that they go up to a 5x! Amazing, right? Now follow the cut for my review on this darling little dress.
