Here are seven must-have pieces for your curvy winter closet. First up, every thick chick needs a fab plus-size coat. Whether you’re a peacoat kind of girl or want to rock a luxurious trench here are two options I love.
tASOS Curve is a wonderful brand out of the UK that is thriving in the closets of curvy and skinny sisters alike. Their coat offerings are generous and include pieces like this fit and flare coat. I love the flattering cut and gorgeous camel color.
t How chic is this ombre peacoat from Lane Bryant? Lane Bryant has seriously stepped up their style game, so don’t discount this old-school retailer. Note that sizing has shifted a bit in their clothes especially with their more luxe collabs, but despite the lack of their former vanity sizing, you should definitely check them out.
t Not to be discounted, Wet Seal has lots of affordable plus-size offerings including the faux leather jacket I am wearing in the last pic.
t Next you need a textured sweater…
t City Chic is a fabulous store out of Australia with the hottest cuts and trendiest pieces. I love their quality and prices. Bonus: They’re opening stores, real stores, all over the country. This simple, fluffy sweater is a must.
tSweater dresses are a fall and winter essential. I love pairing mine with tights and riding boots for a polished fall look. Torrid’s bold baroque print in this gorgeous royal blue is one I’m in love with this season.
t Fashion to Figure, another awesome e-tailer with brick and mortar stores too, has lovely options for keeping warm and looking chic. This plus-size printed dress is a fave of mine and super warm too.
tParty times call for party dresses…
t When it comes to dressing up for holiday soirees, there are two routes in my opinion. I think the little black dress route is always a great go-to, especially when you’re scheduled to attend the Friday night parties after a long work week. A luxe LBD you can just throw on is a must. This one from Lane Bryant’s latest effort to take their styles up a notch and aim at a younger, fresher look is exactly that. Hot. The subtle keyhole shows just a touch of skin and hugs every curve.
t Now the other option for holiday fetes is to go glam. I love all of the sequins and sparkles that the holiday offers. The important thing here is to look pretty and polished, not like you’re off to a pageant.
t This glittery piece from Sydney’s Closet is a frosted frock that will bring a fun and festive edge to the season.
t You can also go super sexy and opt for something you can slither in like the Fallon Peplum Dress from SWAK Designs. This dress is for when you really want to turn up the heat and turn heads.
