Plus-Size Jacket Dress Report
[More editor's picks below]

Plus-size women of all ages often want more arm coverage than sleeveless or strapless style dresses offer, consequently jacket dresses and dresses with sleeves are popular, regardless of style or occasion.  As a result, plus-size jacket dresses are available in both youthful and more mature styles, as special occasion wear and career clothing. Formalwear is getting less bare with many fashion forward trends including sleeves or a jacket.

While layering a cardigan sweater or blazer over a sleeveless or short sleeved dress as separates is a frequent strategy, matched and coordinated sets are still in demand especially for work places where skirt suits are worn and for special occasions when church and evening suits are also appropriate choices, such as when attending a wedding as a guest or mother-of-the bride.  

The selections below reflect the diversity in occasions that women choose jacket dresses. On the one hand, work appropriate styles often include sheath dress styling, menswear patterns, strong power or neutral, conservative colors.  On the other, special occasion dresses chosen for events such as weddings, Mother's Day, Easter, or school graduations are available in softer, dressier fabrics with less structured styling.
