PS Winter Essentials: Coats

One (of the many things) that plus size ladies have to worry about when shopping is finding something that fits properly, not just finding something that fits. When it comes to a good coat and winter essentials it can get even more complicated. I’ve seen many PS fashion bloggers on Instagram wearing some of the trendiest winter pieces. But I’m not brave enough to throw caution to the wind and join along.For me, clothes should be both functional and make you feel like you look like a million dollars. Quite frankly if I wore the shaggy furry carpet look I would feel like Sasquatch (and probably look like it too). So that is definitely a no go. I normally have a signature look when it comes to my coats, but there are 5 coats in particular that I am currently loving!

1) Ladies Ann Harvey Retro Swing Jacket (£49.99) – This beautiful emerald green coat is reminiscent of years gone by and even though I love all things retro I never thought I could pull it off. The colour of this coat is gorgeous, and even though the cut initially looks a bit boxy, you can tell that there is a gentle curve to it on the waistline. I think it’s quirky and cute that the buttons are concealed, making this coat both classic and smart. It might not keep you very warm during the height of winter, but it’s perfect for an event or a night out.
2) Ladies Women Wool Hooded Hip Length Duffle Coat (£42.99) I love all shades of purple, and anything rich like this beautiful shade is something that I’m currently in love with. This coat is both good looking and practical as it has a hoodie, and looks very snug and cosy! With leather piping detail this coat would be perfect for a casual weekend look.

3) Womens Double Breasted Long Coat (£49.99) – This gorgeous double-breasted coat is a must have in any wardrobe. It can be dressed up or down, and the waist tie belt is flattering on any figure. I love the classic look, and think this classic staple is a must-have in any closet – especially for curvy girls!

4) Womens PS Hooded Coat (£23.00) –  If you’ve sensed a theme here, you’re right. This winter I am all about bold colours, and cosy fits. You can’t go wrong with a gorgeous faux fur trim hood or a waist cinching belted cord. With zip and popper button fastenings, this coat is casual and can be paired with anything from jeans to a gorgeous leggings and boots.5) Womens Leopard Raincoat (£13.49 – £19.99) –  You can’t spend winter in Britain without a rain. Hell, you rain comes standard here regardless of the season, so a raincoat comes standard too. I need a raincoat to get me through the season so this leopard coat with a detachable hoodie is a must-have. It also has 2 front pockets and is machine washable. And at under £20, you can’t go wrong.
