Outerwear is a tricky category for e-tailers.  On one hand, parts of the country get exceedingly cold to the point of throwing style out in favor of warmth and practicality with styles such as puffy down parkas and long wool coats.  On the other, other parts of the country barely need more than a light blazer at exactly the same time of year.

The fall shopping season is when the most diverse types of outerwear options are available, while the biggest mark downs happen just after the holidays during January Clearance sales. Fall Previews can start arriving as early as July, with pre-orders on designer styles available at several of the luxury department stores.  Spring styles such as classic trench coats, rain jackets, and wind breakers begin to arrive in late January to early February. That having been said, it is actually one of the easier plus-size clothing categories to find options larger than a size 24W.

As a higher priced ticket item, coats and jackets are often viewed as investment pieces.  Consequently classic styles and colors that have staying power from year-to-year tend to be popular.  Modern classics such as peacoats and trench coats are particularly widely favored. 

Both faux and genuine leather and suede is an annual fall favorite, especially with urban dwellers.

Funkier BoHo or vintage inspired styles can also be appealing to those looking for something a little different. Meanwhile, younger fashionistas often look for simple denim, fleece, baseball jackets, or hoodie jackets during the back-to-school shopping season.

More casual, practical styles such as rain coats, down jackets, anoraks, and ski jackets are also popular with sporty women or those living in extreme weather climates.

Coordinating boots and accessories are also frequently in demand, especially during the colder seasons. Cashmere scarves, gloves and winter accessories are some of the most popular, especially as gifts during the holiday season.
