Winter Fashion: Keeping Warm this Winter

21 Jan

Brrrr! It’s the coldest time of the year, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fashion for the sake of staying warm. This is a great time to start hitting winter sales and pick up new, plus size friendly outerwear. There are so many great choices for curvy beauties that there’s no excuse to stick with a tired out puff coat from three years ago. Besides, what’s more fun and frisky than a classic trench over nothing but your newest set of plus size lingerie? Here are some great winter outwear trends for plus size beauties, guaranteed to fight off the winter blues.

Go Bright and Bold or Stay Home!
It’s easy to play it safe and stick to blacks and grays during the winter, but when the weather outside is frightful a little bright color is so delightful! I love the longer, calf-length swing coats in bold color choices like red, cobalt blue, and green from top plus size retailers. Paired with a neutral outfit and boots or heels, the pop of color is fun and eye catching and sure to make your feel like a million bucks walking down the street.

Tartan and Plaid
The latest trend in outwear is possibly taking its inspiration from the romantic book and now television series, Outlander. The Scottish plaids and tartans are sophisticated enough for the office but still snazzy enough to wear out for the evening over a black mini and knee high boots. If you choose a tartan or plaid coat, make sure there is some detail that breaks up the pattern to prevent transforming your beautiful curves into a block of lines and squares. I prefer any coat in plaid to be cinched at the waist for optimal curve appeal, but large buttons down the front and a tapered cut can also streamline your silhouette. And since we’re not going full-Scott, don’t forget to slip into the sassy, new plus size underwear you purchased to warm up cold winter nights!

At the end of the day you can’t go wrong with a classic tweed trench coat. It’s so Breakfast at Tiffany’s that you’ll be dying to pile your hair on top of your head, put on a sexy corset to enhance your curves in all the right places, and sashay down the street in search of diamonds, champagne, and rich men.
