Plus-Size Jackets & Blazers Report
[More Editor's Picks Below Report]

The structured look of blazers or jackets can work just as well over a pair of trendy or designer jeans to give a casual, polished look as 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 more BoHo style for less formal work places as another option from cardigans and sweaters.

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.  For past season's pieces at a considerable discount check out Last Call and Saks Off Fifth.  Those that appreciate natural fibers will find that Eileen Fisher has a growing collection of career appropriate separates including blazers, jackets and toppers.

Neiman Marcus offers more contemporary designer, but equally upscale, options from Misook which works in heavy gauge knits to 3X.  Other designers to look for here include Marina Rinaldi, Michael Simon, and Carolyn Rose. They also often offer cashmere options in the winter months from their in-house label.

 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.

Bloomingdale's is the most likely to carry edgier looks in jackets and blazers from designers such as DKNYC, MYNT, JET by John Eshaya , and BB Dakota, in addition to both high end labels such as Marina Rinaldi and Lafayette 148, and better, bridge wear from Vince Camuto and Eileen Fisher.

For the very popular Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Vince Camuto contemporary bridge brands shop Macy's and Bon Ton.  Many of the brands already mentioned plus upscale modern classic and tailored options designed in-house are available at Lord & Taylor.

Budget friendly, classic options are available from Kohl's which carries Ralph Lauren's Chaps line among other labels.  Meanwhile, JC Penney offers both classic and contemporary styles at value prices.

Tailored Career Options

In addition to the department stores already mentioned, those who appreciate extremely well made, tailored career blazers and jackets in wool should stop in at Pendleton.  It is not unusual to find Harris tweeds, menswear inspired patterns, and wool gabardines in styles that work as well over a classic pair of jeans for weekend casual as to the office.

Jones New York specializes in clothing for the office and consequently has one of the best inventories of classic black and neutral options appropriate for job interviews.  More contemporary styles are also available on the brand website, while budget friendly designs from this company are available from Dress Barn.

Internet and catalog retailers also offer plenty of options.  Chadwick's of Boston is especially good for moderately priced, tailored career separates including blazers.  Their misses collection is available up to size 18, and women's to size 24W with a few petite and tall options.  Land's End has excellent quality and often offers natural fibers in linen, cotton, wool and cashmere with one of the largest ranges of sizes available including petite plus, tall, and women's sizes to 32W in jackets and blazers.  Their Outfitters business site offers even more classic options.

Appleseed's offers classic options in natural fibers, while Winter Silks as the name suggests is a source for silk blazers and jackets. Willow Ridge carries more moderately priced options form well known brands such as Vickie Wayne and Alfred Dunner.  A small collection, but well worth the stop, is the contemporary looks at NorthStyle.

New York & Co offers one of the best budget friendly, yet chic, tailored work separates in sizes to 18.  Most fabrics are easy care.  Similarly styled but with a few options available as large as 24W, are the jackets and separates from Metrostyle.  Meanwhile, Lane Bryant has being upping its style quotient in recent years with fashion forward, yet modern classic jackets and blazers becoming a mainstay in their on-line collection in sizes to 28W.

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.

The newest arrival is Spanish fashionable retail giant Mango, extending a large percentage of their collection up to size 20 in the American market  for the Fall 2014 shopping season.  Another foreign retailer with lots of style that has become available on the U.S. market recently is the British ASOS which translates runway looks at mass market prices in sizes to 24W. Rounding out the offerings from trend-conscious international retailers are the jackets and toppers from Australian trendy plus retailer City Chic now available on-line through Nordstrom in the U.S. market.

Homegrown trendy retailers with extended plus-size collections that include jackets and blazers include Forever 21 in junior sizing to 3X and Torrid in sizes to 5X.   Ashley Stewart regularly offers trendy career styles for women with curves with a collection that changes frequently and sells out quickly in sizes to 26W.  Meanwhile, Macy's in house brand INC is the most trend-conscious of the department stores with jackets and blazers available in sizes to 24W.  The on-line trendy plus fashion super retailer, alight, also has a range of options, most of which are budget friendly.

Trendier jackets and blazers can also be found at the cataloguer Monroe & Main which offers their entire collection in sizes up to 24W.  Also worth mentioning are the jackets with a vintage, goth or steampunk flair available from Pyramid Collection in sizes to 28W.  Pricier is the chic, new Eloquii line tailored exclusively for plus-size women in on-trend body conscious designs.

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.
