25 Stylish Plus-Size Coats for Fall 2014
October 9, 2014

As temperatures drop outer layers become heavier and warmer.  This is the time of year when wool coats become the norm in northern states, and women are beginning to think about down and (faux) fur coats.

This year menswear inspired patterns, particularly plaids, are the biggest style story in wool coats.  Buffalo plaids in bold red are particularly trendy, while more contemporary and classic women are mainly choosing black and white patterns. BoHo style coats in faux fur and wool blanket patterns are also trending.

Elsewhere, animal prints, faux fur, and leather trims are amping up the style quotient with luxury detailing. Some have a classic, vintage flavor while others move more in the sleek, contemporary chic direction.

Quilted riding jackets began trending in last year and are still in demand this year.  A casual, light weight style, they layer well over cashmere sweaters, faux suede leggings, and tall riding boots for a Jackie Kennedy, Old Money look.

Quilted down puffer jackets have a more urban flair, and are popular with those who like a sporty look. The activewear trend including leggings, soft jogging pants, and yoga pants with sneakers work well with these jackets, in addition to other more casual styles such as varsity jackets and field coats.

Classic black and white is the most popular color in outerwear this season.  Plum to magenta tones, pink, true red, and  jewel blue are other hues playing parts in patterns and solid color coats.
