In the winter months when we’re all bundled up in as many layers as we can muster, many think it’s impossible to look stylish. They couldn’t be more wrong. All you need is one item to see you through to spring: a trendy coat. Abandon that holey, lost-its-warmth coat you’ve had for countless years and treat yourself to something of the ‘oo-er’ variety. Read on for our favourites from the ‘So Fabulous’ plus size range…
Contrasting sleeves have been big news in 2012 and they’re set to continue well into this year. The So Fabulous PU Sleeved Military Jacket is a khaki jacket with black faux leather sleeves. It has a drawstring waistline if you want to make it more shapely and a high collar to keep you warm this winter. Another military jacket option is the So Fabulous Military Melton Jacket; a classic, yet stylish, navy design.
If your derrière is your best asset and you prefer shorter coats, the So Fabulous Tweed Biker Jacket is the one. It encompasses a myriad of trends this season from the tweed finish to the biker fit to the faux leather trim. If you enjoy the practicalities of your coat but want something with added ‘wow’, the So Fabulous Quilted Mac is the answer. It’s a trendy waterproof coat in a quintessentially British quilted finish and boasts gold and black buttons too.
Coats with interesting and colourful prints are always winners as well. Stand out from the crowd in the So Fabulous Navahoe Coat. This traditionally printed coat embodies luxuriousness with its rich colours, thick collar and flattering tie-around-the-waist belt. Another great option is the So Fabulous Longline Melton Biker Checked Coat. Tartan is big – both this season and next – and you can’t beat the classic red pattern. Featuring biker jacket features, along with military style buttons, this belted number would look great with fur trim boots.
