Trouser jeans are big this year, and I like them because they make a casual fabric like stretch denim more dressy. You can wear them everywhere and match them with a fuzzy sweater for daytime and a shimmering top for evening. These plus size Jag Jeans denim trousers at Nordstrom.com, are a nice choice. Available in sizes 14 - 24 in dark navy, with a 33 inch inseam.

Today, I stumbled on a site that was new to me; softsurroundings.com. I do a lot of surfing trying to find things that I like, that hopefully you will like too. I was pretty excited to find a great selection of women's plus sizes and tall sizes as well. If you're a 16 or 18 petite, they have you covered there too. This soft and comfy looking dressy hoodie caught my eye. It has long sleeves (pushed up in the photo, not a 3/4 sleeve), shaping at the waist and a little bit of stretch. It's also machine washable. Available in sizes 1X - 3X in 4 calming colors.

I've always liked the quality and style of the INC International Concepts label at Macy's. I find that the clothes hold up nicely and a lot of pieces are machine washable even if they look like 'dry clean only'. Take this plus size cowl-neck sweater
, for instance. The machine washable synthetic material is soft to the touch and the small gather below the cowl neckline is a nice detail. Available in sizes 0X-3X in 3 colors.
