Plus-Size Jacket & Blazer Report
[Shopping Resources & More Editor's Picks Below Report]

The structured look of blazers or jackets can work just as well over a pair of trendy or classic jeans to give a casual, polished look as when worn to office.  Consequently, plus-size jackets and blazers are in demand across every age group, price point, and taste level.  During the spring and fall seasons and in milder climates, blazers can also double as outerwear.

Classic, tailored looks are still favored for interviews, more conservative work environments, and with many more mature women. It is a common choice in many fields to wear blazers as separates instead of as part of pant suits in the modern office.  Furthermore, many better quality pant suits are offered as a matching or coordinating top and bottom to be purchased separately.  This makes it possible for those who do not need the more formal look to find even more jacket options.

More fitted styles, brighter colors, and patterns are also appropriate in many contemporary office environments for those who want to amp up their look. Softer, less structured toppers are easy-to-wear options and sometimes come in a Contemporary and even more BoHo or Art-to-Wear styles for less formal work places.  Furthermore, the lines between jackets and cardigan sweaters is blurring with the rise in popularity of structured knit jacket styles.  This is a particularly good change for women who have upper arm fit issues.

Vintage and retro style jackets are favored by romantic dressers, and those who enjoy playing with Victorian inspired fashion styles such as Steampunk and Goth.  Some of these styles also make good evening jacket options in velvet and lace.

Natural fibers used in jackets and blazers include wool, linen, cotton, and silk, with leather and suede trending in and out of fashion, depending upon the year.

Internet Shopping Resources for Plus-Size Blazers & Jackets

One of the most popular and in-demand items, plus-size blazers and jackets are available at a wide range of retailers on the internet.  Inventories in plus-sizes are often deeper on-line than in many brick-and-mortar locations.

Department Stores

Department stores have traditionally offered women's sizes from 14W to 24W.  For those who wear what are frequently referred to as "in between" sizes (12 -18 misses) it is often worth browsing the regular sizing categories where some labels in size XL may fit.

Upscale, career looks in classic to contemporary styles are a specialty of Lafayette 148 which uses fine fabrics often of natural fibers such as silk, linen, and cotton.  A particularly good selection of this luxury designer label is regularly stocked at Saks Fifth Avenue.  Other labels often here include the equally luxurious Marina Rinaldi, Italian luxury knits from Stizzoli, and eco-fashion designer label Eileen Fisher.

Those that appreciate natural fibers will find that Eileen Fisher has a growing collection of career appropriate separates including blazers, jackets and toppers.   Lord & Taylor often has steep mark downs available directly on the main website from brands such as Tahari, Nipon Boutique, Ralph Lauren, and Calvin Klein.  One of the deepest selections of plus-size styles available on the internet, looks range from classically tailored to contemporary with the latest colors, patterns, and cuts available along side more traditional black, white, and navy options in size 0 to 24W.

Neiman Marcus offers more contemporary designer, but equally upscale, options from Misook which works in heavy gauge knits to 3X. One of the deepest collections of designer blazers and jackets, this is a must stop for professionals looking to update their wardrobes with high quality and luxury designs in classic to contemporary, and even bohemian styles.  Regularly available are designers such as Berek, Lafayette 148, Marina Rinaldi, Michael Simon, and Caroline Rose in size 14 to 24W. They also often offer cashmere options in the winter months from their in-house label.  Artier and bohemian looks with less structure than tailored styles are also frequently available here, including flowing kimono toppers in both prints and solids from labels such as Johnny Was and Eileen Fisher.

Meanwhile, Dillard's carries designer jackets and blazers from Ming Wang who also works in heavy gauge career knits with a classic designer ethos.  ZoZo woman is a designer with more contemporary flair regularly offered. More moderately priced tailored bridge career brands such as Tahari and Peter Nygard are also regularly offered. Ralph Lauren is frequently well represented at Dillard's in sizes up to 24W. Classic black interview options are reliably available, in addition to more diverse cuts, colors, and styles.  Those who appreciate contemporary prints and cuts will also find a good selection, in among the more tailored styles.

For the very popular Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Vince Camuto contemporary bridge brands shop Macy's and Bon Ton.  Macy's also has several in house labels with a more contemporary to trendy vibe.  The Jones New York line is frequently available from both, for those who appreciate the classic quality and tailored lines of the brand. Both have frequent sales that can bring otherwise moderately priced brands down into more more shopping budgets for size 0 to 24W.

Budget friendly, classic options are available from Kohl's which carries Ralph Lauren's Chaps line among other labels in size 0 to 24W.

Contemporary, Art-to-Wear, & BoHo Styles

With the softening of office attire, more creative jacket styles including bold prints, mixed fabrics, and easier silhouettes are popular options for women who enjoy expressing personal style with more creative looks.  The BoHo trend is adding kimono styles and fabrics often reserved for evening looks into day wear styles. Coldwater Creek offers well made, contemporary styles in tailored looks for size 6 to 24W that mix-and-match over both more casual jeans and office looks. Styles can include art-to-wear detailing including embroidery, hand painting, and patchwork fabrics.

A small collection, but well worth the stop, is the contemporary looks at North Style in size 6 to 26W.  Pieced art-to-wear and boiled wool jackets are often stocked here.  Draper's & Damon's offers a similar style collection, with the addition of softer hand painted kimono styles popular for evening and occasion looks in size S to 3X. Meanwhile, the long flowing toppers and sweater jackets at Soft Surroundings have a European to bohemian flavor in size 2 to 18 for petite and talls, with women's sizing extended to 24W.

Trendy Plus-Size Blazers

For the trendy woman who loves the flair and structure of blazers over jeans and leggings, options are increasingly available, even in extended plus sizes larger than 3X.  It is here that you are most likely to find the latest colors, more interesting and diverse cuts, and in recent years, pattern options at Fast Fashion prices. Many of these can make light outerwear options for back-to-school and collegiate fashion.  Torrid offers the widest selection of both styles and sizes.  Looks here can go from classically tailored to edgy at moderate price points in size XL to 6X.

 ASOS translates runway looks at mass market prices in size 14 to 24W. A Fast Fashion hot spot turnover is rapid and popular styles sell out of sizes quickly. Trend-conscious Australian retailer City Chic is now available on-line through Nordstrom in the U.S. market.  Offering both edgy styles and the softer bohemian inspired kimono toppers, their prices are moderate.

Forever 21 has a well stocked on-line selection in sizes up to 3X. This extremely popular Fast Fashion hot spot frequently has good collection of separates and blazers to dress up or down at modest price points.

Super Size Jackets

Brands and retailers offering sizes beyond 24W are the most likely to use knits and softer silhouettes in jackets, blurring the line between blazers and dusters or toppers.  Available in smaller plus-sizes as well, many of these spots are good choices for women with a more eclectic or bohemian style, in addition to more contemporary or classic tastes.

Super size women will find the most diverse collection of options on Amazon both from well-known brands and smaller, indie designers.  Styles can range from classic to trendy with artsier toppers in the mix in sizes up to 44W.  Avenue carries styles suitable for more casual offices and weekend wear in sizes to 32W. 

Ulla Popken often has a good selection with more classic styles often available to 38W, while prints and embellished options usually finish at size 34W.

Meanwhile QVC offers most designers and brands to 3X (28W), with a few here and there available even larger.  With measurements listed for individual products, super size women may find unusual options that will work on their bodies here.

Every now and again both Igigi and Kiyonna have well-tailored, chic suiting separates and career jacket styles and are worth checking, especially for super size women needing interview clothing.  Both offer sizes to 5X.

Bargain Shopping

Those shopping for high quality on a tighter budget, such as students looking for interview attire or newly employed professionals in upscale and more formal industries, can have remarkably good success on-line in size 14 to 24W.

The sale racks of the major department stores such as Neiman Marcus and Dillard's can turn up some surprisingly good bargains of in season, high end designer jacket options in both conservative tailored and contemporary styles.

For past season's high end designer pieces at a considerable discount from labels such as Misook, Marina Rinaldi, Eileen Fisher, and Lafayette 148 check out Last Call and Saks Off Fifth.

Flash sale sites are often a good resource for mid-tier and diffusion designer collections such as Vince Camuto, DKNYC, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren, and Calvin Klein.  Two that regularly carry options in larger sizes are My Habit and 6 PM.
