Jackets, Coats & Knitwear
Hurrah for on-trend plus size outerwear like jackets and knitwear! Designed with women with fuller figures in mind, they make it a pleasure to layer up without adding bulk. Even better, plus size cardis or longer-length knits and jackets make it possible to wear your favourite tops pretty much all year round. Try and keep to three layers to avoid looking like Paddington Bear. (In other words, cute but not chic.) Start with a figure-hugging top or T-shirt that won't add any weight as your base layer before adding a slimline cardigan or warm tunic. If your bottom two layers don't bulk up your silhouette, you can safely add a snug, warm jacket as your outer layer. There are many tricks that will help women with fuller figures to trim down their layered look. For instance, belt a longer-length tunic or cardigan if it's your second layer to 'contain' all the layers underneath your jacket. Balance your top layers with a slim bottom. Think a pencil skirt, skinnies or leggings with a figure-flattering plus size cut. Baggy pants or a wide skirt won't do you any favours when you’re going bigger on top, resulting in a shapeless instead of curvaceous silhouette. Chunky knits such as thick cable knits work best as outer layers on fuller figures. Wearing a heavy jumper underneath a jacket will definitely add unwanted padding. But knitwear is not only for winter. All women, not only fuller figure women, know the value of having a cardigan or wrap at hand in summer not only when the sun has gone down but also when your shoulders have seen enough sun for one day. An elegant jacket is always a good way to cover up a work dress and can help you to work a slimline plus size dress like a boss. As you can see, not all plus size knitwear and jackets are the same. There's one for every curvy figure and every fashion need, and chances are you'll find it at Spree.
