Jackets for the plus size Diva

Updated on July 21, 2013

Styling the Right Jacket

Fall is upon us and that means a Diva needs to don the right jacket that rocks her style!  Sometimes this is not an easy feat when your a Size 14 and larger!  However, never fear!  The Style Fashionista to the rescue with jacket in hand!

Most common to plus size Divas is the dreaded additional bulk of a jacket on top of layers of clothes?  The key is understanding that style for the fabulously plump has come a long way!  A change that enables a plus size woman to not only show her personal style but allowing her to be confident in doing so!

Short and Belted!

This style is perfect for fall. Remember ladies we are looking for that hour-glass figure! If you don't have one! Fake one! Make sure the button of your single button jacket fits neatly and comfortably under your bustline.  This will be the anchor of getting that curvey look.  Make sure the jacket fits neatly across the top half of your hips!  Okay ladies, you will need to take a look in the mirror to make sure you look as great leaving a room as entering!

This look easily lends itself to a tonal look where your top and slacks are the same hue and use a completely different color jacket.  Or, the way the model is wearing it looks clean, tailored, but comfortable.

Leather Jacket


Pea Coat


A Contemporary Pea Coat

This updated version of the blue wool pea coat has become a staple for the busy mom, career woman, and the woman looking for a casual but classy week-end look.

For your casual weekend, throw this pea coat on over your favorite slacks and t-shirt, along with your pair of favorite pearls and your look will take you from an afternoon of shopping into dinner with friends.

During the week, this pea coat worn with a "pencil" or A-line skirt will keep your vertical line clean and fashionable.  Of course your dressier slack, tee, and fitted jacket will be a neat fit and keep your style intact when you take off your coat!



The Trench Has It!

Another timeless option is our black trench coat.  Today you can find them in several fabric and color options, just in time for all of you lovely ladies.  However, the above rules apply for this style of jacket as the pea coat but lends itself to a more career-orientated look!

This coat lends itself well to city living.  Throw on a large designer scarf to add an accent color to your look!  On a windy day, throw on a fashionable scarf, knot it under your chin, adorn yourself with large hoop earrings and a brightly color chunky bracelet for a retro look!

Sassy Casual


Duster Style

This is an excellent choice to show your style and sassy style.  Make the coat dressy or casual but remember to keep your vertical line intact.  An oblong scarf or long strands of pearls or beads lends themselves as a grand accessory to complete this look!
