Plus-Size Outerwear: Trends & Editor's Picks

Plus-Size Coats, Jackets & Parkas Shopping Report

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.  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. 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.

Plus-Size Outerwear Internet Shopping Resources

A surprisingly good resource, especially for women who need extended plus-sizes, is on Amazon.  Brands and labels are constantly changing but the inventory is extensive with easy to use search tools available in the side bar navigation. Sizes as large as 40W are available.

Macy's and Nordstrom offer the most diverse collections of better label plus-size outerwear available on-line.  Styles frequently range from well-known designer classics such as trench and pea coats to more casual, urban looks in sizes up to 24W. Nordstrom is one of the few department stores that will offer genuine fur trimmed and lined plus-size outerwear during the colder seasons.  Luxury quality outerwear from top brands in the finest fabrics is also regularly available during the cooler months at Bloomingdale's and Saks Fifth Avenue where labels such as Cinzia Rocca and Marina Rinaldi are common.

Pendleton offers their entire premium wool collection in sizes up to 18 with more and more styles available in extended sizes to 24W. Those looking for either faux or genuine leather jackets will also have good luck at both Wilson Leather and QVC in sizes up to 28W.

Younger, and trendier women will like the urban appeal of Dr. Jay's casual street style.  Ashley Stewart and Deb Shops are other good sources for inexpensive, trendy looks to 3X.  Torrid offers the greatest size range with coats and jackets in size XL to 5X.

Meanwhile, Lands End offers the best selection of moderately priced practical rain jackets, down parkas, and anoraks in addition to sporty fleeces and classic wool pea coats in sizes 2 to 26W, with some petite and tall sizes available as well. Trendy colors and prints are appearing here more and more frequently as they continue to update their look.

Classic rain jackets and parkas in casual styles at affordable prices are popular at Blair which carries both women's sizes S to 3X, and petite sizes to 2XL.   Bedford Fair and Old Pueblo Traders have classic quilted styles, wool coats, faux fur, and rain coats appropriate for both work and casual wear in size 4 to 26W, with select petite styles available as large as 20P.

Contemporary wool and work appropriate outerwear collections at MetroStyle and Chadwick's of Boston are moderately priced options with most available up to a size 18, and a few extended sizes up to 24W.

More eclectic, vintage inspired and BoHo coats and jackets are available from Pyramid Collection in size 2 to 28W. 

Extended Plus-Size Outerwear

For those on tighter budgets, super size women will find a good selection of seasonal jackets and coats at Avenue which stocks up to size 32W.  Catherine's has styles with a classic to contemporary style in sizes up to 5X, with some plus petite styles available. Ulla Popken carries a few wool coats in size 12 to 34W.  Trendy women will find faux leather and stylish seasonal coats and jackets at Torrid in size up to 5X.

Igigi often offers one or two contemporary style wool coats during the fall and winter season in size 12 to 32W, while eShakti frequently carries a few lighter weight, fashion forward styles with a slight vintage twist in sizes up to 36W.  ModCloth is beginning to become a trendier resource for women in sizes over 3X, as well.
