Plus size winter wear needn't be a dull trench coat and a pair of wellies, who says that you have to dress down in order to dress in your size?! Winter wear should be glamorous, warm & comfortable, who says that you can't have all three!!
When we're shopping for winter clothing, it can be tough to find warm and durable pieces that don't make you look and feel weighed down and frumpy. Shopping on the high street can sometimes be a great place to start as you can try items & find out what style suits you best, but don't fray away from shopping online as a great amount of places let you return items if you find that the item doesn't suit you when it arrives. You'll also find that many online stores feature a far broader range of plus-size clothing than their high street rivals so don't shy away from shopping for winter wear online.
Remember that every woman's body is different, so don't assume that any one of a range of plus size coats will suit you just because it's the right size.
Take your body shape in account when looking for that perfect winter coat or dress, it's important to feel comfortable in your clothing whilst choosing a style that you look. Think about the way your clothes hang on you - what parts of your body tend to cause you problems, and what do you want to accentuate? Choose an item that complements you.
Of course the perfect coat should be one that really lasts, not just this winter but for many years to come, we don't do 'seasons' so well here in the alternative scene so who says that you have to get a new coat every winter! Take the time to buy a quality piece that you truly adore and it will last in your wardrobe for years to come.
