Tailored Texture Tweed Jacket - Available up to 3X

CCTweedTextureJacket.jpg I'm always on the lookout for versatile plus size jackets, like this tweed texture jacket from Coldwater Creek. A sure fire way to look polished and put together is to wear a jacket that complements your outfit. Notice I didn't say 'match'. The most important thing is the fit. A general rule of thumb is that if your pants or skirt flow away from the body, then you want to wear a jacket that is more fitted to the body. Likewise, if your pants or skirt are cut close to the body, you can choose a jacket with a little more relaxed fit.

After you choose a style, then pick a color or pattern that either matches the colors in your outfit, or contrasts. When you match colors, they don't have to be exact, just in the same color family. For instance, you could wear a lilac boucle jacket with a solid purple top. To contrast, combine a light with a dark, a solid with a pattern or a bright with a neutral. You can even be brave and mix patterns, as long as one is much more subdued than the other, and the color families are the same.

Plus Size Bras and Underwear - Special or Everyday

TriumphRomanticBra.jpg is a treasure trove of undergarments for 'plus size' women. Many comfortable, functional and even beautiful options are to be found. I searched for my size and found this sweet Triumph underwire bra with available matching brief. I found many more options, and a lot were prettier than I could have hoped for. For everyday options, I like the Bali no-poke wire bra and the Wacoal full figure underwire bra.

Plus Size Faux Wrap Dress - Fantastic Fall Color

IgigiFauxWrapDress.jpg Purple has a major presence in this fall's color palette. This plus size faux wrap dress is a beautiful jewel-tone plum. You'll notice that while it has a surplice neckline, it's not low cut. The ruching at the side seam creates a contemporary look. This dress is pretty enough for a night out on the town, and conservative enough for a high profile corporate event. Available in sizes 12 to 30/32.

Wake Up Your Fall Wardrobe with Sassy Boots

DavidTateSavannahBoot.gif David Tate wide width boots and shoes are so comfortable and luxurious feeling, at a very modest price for the quality. I found these delicious Savannah extra wide calf boots at While I might not normally splurge for something with prominent accent trim, these sexy boots are a steal at $99.00. Pull these babies on with a knee length skirt or dress to add some serious zing. To get more wear out of these, pair with a long skirt - then the zebra trim will go 'stealth mode'.
