Plus size women’s winter wear
It feels great to combat the colder months by looking amazing during winter, and our range of plus size women’s winter coats and jackets are designed to help you achieve a look that attracts attention. We think it’s always useful to have a rough idea about what you’re looking for, which is why we recommend that before you dive into the countless coatigans that we offer, it’s important to reflect on the type of fit and colour that will truly accentuate your figure. Of course, choosing the right kind of fabric is also important, which is why our winter coats are made from the finest materials that will keep you nice and warm throughout the colder months.
Apple shaped figures
For the woman with an ‘apple-shaped’ figure (e.g. rounder), it is wise to ‘trim in’ the waist. This will counter the roundness of your figure by decreasing the size of your bust, waist and shoulders. Our magnificent plus size coats which fall below the waist (or even a 3/4 length one) will help you to achieve the perfect look as they’ll cut off the roundness of your figure.
When you think about how you want your coat to ‘fit,’ we recommend you choose a piece which has simple tailoring, that goes inwards around the waist area. Once more, this will help to counter the curves on your waist, and give the illusion of a longer, narrower body with a smaller waist. Jackets such as our cream round neck merino wool coat are perfect; as you can see, this goes inwards at the waist, giving you a seamless and elegant look.
Even minute details such as buttons and pockets can transform the fit and look of your coatigan. Again, selecting the right style is important as buttons located around the bust and waistline areas not only draw attention to these locations, but they also tend to add bulk and weight in areas that are best avoided. Our Cream Quilted Coat is a great example of a piece that will wonderfully suit a woman with an apple shape figure as the pockets are lower down the coat.
Choosing the shoulders and sleeves of your plus size coat is another key consideration. A rounder figure requires a coat that takes attention away from shoulders or the waist area, so choose a coat that does not have shoulder pads. The most appropriate type of jacket for you is likely to be one with detail on the buttons, and have longer or perhaps turn-back cuffs.
As you have a rounder figure, it is wise to have an appearance that lengthens your body. A deep v neckline works a treat – anything that is open will help to create vertical lines that lengthen your body. Moreover, it goes without saying that the colour of coatigan can really add an element of class and elegance to your outfit. At Chesca, we offer a variety of colours to choose from: from the classic greys, whites and blacks to the bolder reds, aubergines and oranges (check out our dazzling orange zip detail wool coat), we can guarantee that you’ll find a coat that suits your look!
Pear shaped figures
For women with pear shaped figures, we recommend that you go for something that draws attention upwards – for instance a waist length jacket (or a 3/4 length) such as our monotone jersey jacket with asymmetrical zip will help you show off those curves. Its stunning ombre detailing, coupled with the lush speckled motif around the collar and bodice will undoubtedly make you stand out against the crowd.
Your figure was made to show off your shoulders! As such, shoulder detailing definitely works for you, and shoulder pads are particularly effective too, as they not only enhance the appearance of your shoulders, but they balance off your hips.
Necklines are often overlooked when it comes to selecting the best look for you and when you’ve got a host of styles to choose from, it’s no surprise! From plunging necklines that showcase the inner beauty of your fuller figures (not to mention the rest of your striking outfit), to more traditional V-neck or rounded necklines which create sharp, elaborate lines with a tighter fit – you’ll be spoilt for choice by our plus size coats and jackets! Another reason why selecting the right neckline is particularly effective, is that you can accessorise your jacket, leaving plenty of room for our chunky winter scarves.
Plus size cardigans
Cardigans can be used to transform summer dresses into winter ones, as they create a sexy, alluring persona. They can even be worn under light jackets if the weather turns colder, or they can be layered over a button-down shirt to add warmth, comfort whilst being able to show off other items in your wardrobe. Chesca’s cardigans, as with our entire range of garments, are designed solely with the fuller figure in mind.
Our cardigans expertly complement plus size figures as they cut off the shoulders, hips and bums, allowing you to stay comfortable and warm, no matter what you’re wearing underneath. For example, you can easily wear short skirts with one of our cardigans, knowing that you’ll look great but also feel at ease.
Whether you are dressing for the winter, or need something lighter for the summer, Chesca’s range of coatigans can appeal to all plus size figures, ranging from sizes 12 to 24. You can be sure that when you buy from Chesca, you are buying quality and stylish plus size clothes that have been designed by curvy women, for curvy women.
