Outerwear,  Plus-size,  Review


The fall is here and there’s so much to prepare for. A lot of the time when the summer and back-to-school fun is over we just want to relax and wait for the weather to get colder. But for me, and I’m sure plenty of others, Fall is the busiest and the most stressful time of the year. Not only do I have to worry about the holidays (the decorations, presents, etc.), I also have to reorganize my mine and my family’s closet to prepare us for the cold weather.

If you’ve been reading my reviews and articles, you will know that I’m all about finding some of the best clothing for plus-size women. And Today I found a couple of stylish outerwear clothing to help you keep warm and look great in this transitional season.


Item: Rex Rabbit Cape

Where to buy: CoEdition

Price: $199

Sizes: 2X/3X , L/XL

Materials: Faux Fur: 100% Acrylic Pile, 100% Polyester back

Lining: 100% Polyester

Machine Washable, Line dry

The Rex Rabbit Cape is the perfect outerwear for transitional weather. This outfit was designed to keep cool during the fall and some winter time. The benefit of this cape is that in spite the fact it’s meant to keep cool, its stylish and fancy enough for almost any occasion, including formal events. I’d say this would be perfect for a wedding, an opera, Christmas parties, a romantic date night, girls night out, etc.

My advice would be to give this outfit its proper value. What I mean to say is, avoid wearing this on rainy days, or to the grocery store or it might end up losing its value. Always make sure to wear this cape on the days that you’re a little more dressed-up.

Cons: Though this cape was made to keep cool, it might not give the proper warmth to women who live in colder places, and women who live in warmer areas can enjoy it longer but maybe not throughout the entire winter time.

This cape is non-bulky, so it would still be great to wear them on top of a bulky cable knit sweater.


Item: Port Pleather Sleek Bolero Jacket

Where to buy: CoEdition

Price: $119

Size: 14-24

Materials: 100% Polyurethane

To Wash with damp wash cloth

The jacket was designed to add an edge to a women’s clothing. I would consider this design to be a transitional weather jacket. Perfect to wear on a date, a night out with friends, laid back jobs, and any other casual events.

It was made for cold, though not extremely cold, winter days. I own one jacket similar to this one and the thing I love about it is that it doesn’t hide the lower body part. And because of its waistline length, it helps slim the upper body while accentuating the lower curves.

I can say that the cons of owning this jacket would be that it’s not for extremely cold days. So probably not a good idea to wear if you live in places where the temperature is always below 0 degrees.


Item: Black &White; Check Asymmetric Coat

Where to buy: YoursClothing

Price: 69.99 Euro, Approximately $79.78

Sizes: 16-34 (UK Size), 12-30(US size)

Material: Main: 48% Polyester, 22% Acrylic, 12% Viscose, 7% Nylon, 6% Wool, 5% Cotton

Lining: 100% Polyester

Dry Cleaning only

Features: Check print, Asymmetric design, PU Leather Trim, Zip through fastening, Press stud fastening collar, Long sleeve…

This design is pretty fashion forward and yet simple. It’s a very unique outfit that you won’t find many women wear it now-a-days.

Its long, straight, and asymmetrical style would go perfectly with some skinny jeans, leggings, mid-calf/knee-length pencil dress or skirts. The woman in the picture is a great example. Feel free to rock them with any types of boots.

Because of its professional look, this outfit would look great for work, school and other professional activities.


Item: Simply Wrap Tech

Where to find: CoEdition

Price: $149

Color: Black

Sizes: 14-24

Material: 97% Polyester, 3% Elastane

The Simply wrap Tech is such a fashionable transitional outerwear. It goes with almost any occasion. It looks professional enough to be worn to a professional job, classy enough to wear at a party, date night, church, and it’s fun and flexible enough to wear at a girls night out.

This design would pretty much go with almost anything such as a dress (at or below the knees, mid-calf pencil dress/wide skirt dress) , some skinny jeans with high heels, Jumpsuit, etc.

Since this outfit is lighter than the previous work place outer wear, I would recommend it more for those who live in warmer cities rather than colder ones.


Product: Black Lined Parka with Faux Fur Trim Hood

Where to buy: YoursClothing

Price: 59.99 Euro approximately

Sizes: 16-40 (UK Size), 14-38 (USA size)

Materials: Shell: 90% Polyester, 10% Nylon

Lining: 100% Polyester

Faux Fur: 46% Acrylic, 35% Modacrylic, 19% Polyester

This black lined Parka is a good feminine design for women who want to look chic on a daily basis. It’s very causal and warm which means that you can wear this to pretty much any casual occasions during the cold, especially if you live in places that gets extremely cold. The one thing I love about this jacket is the fact that it helps keep warm in cold days but it’s also very feminine and stylish at the same time. So you don’t have to put off one thing for another.

It is wearable with anything depending on how you feel. However, this would not be my first pick for formal events unless it’s extremely cold. You can wear this during the Fall or the winter. And again, this depends on how cold it gets where you live.
