While blue is my favorite color, I tend to buy a lot of red but one of the things I really want in red this season is a fall/winter coat. I tried looking locally but all I could find was a lot of boxy black. I hate boxy winter coats. A/ cold air always travels up the back and defeats the purpose of wearing the coat in the first place and B/ layering and plus size just doesn’t look nice with a boxy jacket. In my opinion boxy just looks bulky without the advantage of added warmth.
I searched through some of my favorite online stores and came up with some plus size red coats as possibilities.
Making It Big has a simple double breasted A-line wool coat for $169. The good thing about them is they offer sizes up to 8x.
Evans’s has two I’m partial too. A hooded duffle coat for £45 and a skirted mac for £55. Both are available in sizes 14 to 32. I love the duffle because it’s cute and practical and the mac because it’s so damn pretty.
Jessica London actually has a lot of red coats in comparison to other shops so it is not surprising that I have a few favorites from there. There’s the ¾-length red leather coat for $140 in sizes 14 to 28 and the wool pea coat (I love peacoats) in ruby (there are nine other colors) for $120 in sizes 12 to 32. (A little off topic but they have a lots of great patterned coats — think houndstooth.)
A a wool-aline pea coat from One Stop Plus for $70 in sizes 14 to 32. It actually comes in six other colors if red isn’t your thing.
And finally there’s this deep red topper coat from JC Penny for $113 in sizes 1x to 3x. It even comes with the scarf.
Of all the reds I think the duffle from Evans is my absolute favorite. In terms of style, the wool peacoat from Jessica London is tops. Have you seen a gorgeous red coat anywhere?
