I like the short sleeved sweater trend this year and this cabled babydoll sweater is a cute example. I personally would wear this with straight leg or boot cut pants, but if you can pull off these leggings, then by all means! You could also wear a sleek mockneck or crewneck top underneath. Available in medium grey or black in sizes 0X - 3X.

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.

I was cruising the sale racks at my local Lane Bryant store today and I picked up this plus size front tie cardigan
in black. However... I just checked the Lane Bryant website, and they have the same cardigan for $13.99 - I paid $19.99 in the store. Also, there's a gift cheque offer for $15 off $50, $25 off $75 and $50 off $150 thru October 7th. No mention of that at the checkout counter. The offer is good online as well. Depending on your local store's prices, you might do better online.

I wasn't sure at first if I liked this, but it keeps catching my eye, so I guess I do. This plus size Zig Zag Tunic
is made of luxurious silk/cotton blend. The warm colors are nice for fall, and the pattern is playful and vibrant. Available in sizes 0X-3X from Macy's.

Does just the thought
of turtlenecks make you itchy and claustrophobic? This cute plus size pointelle cardigan
from Macy's might be more your speed. If you're warm natured or just not ready to don a heavy sweater, an open knit with short sleeves may appeal to you. Pair with your summer tank tops, camis and dresses to carry them into the early fall season. Available in versatile heather grey or black, in sizes 1X-3X.

Avenue has loads of new plus size cardigans for fall 2008. I love this
ribbed toggle cardigan
It's available in 8 colors, in sizes 14/16 to 26/28. This is a comfortable and versatile alternative to a light jacket that's a little more dressy than denim or fleece.
