Although a lot of us feel like wrapping our whole selves with a warm blanket, we should direct our gaze towards smart-looking plus size fashion for colder weather so you don’t end up looking like a fluffy pumpkin.
There are some curves and even a little bare skin in this year’s cold-weather apparel and cool colors will rule the streets. Plus size fashion has come a long way –
Cool like the Snow Queen
Cool colors are in this Autumn and Winter, and by cool we mean blues and purples that bring out your inner snow queen. Queens are regal and serious and inspire a sense of awe – and we have some amazing new shapes and accentuate everything that inspires that awe indeed. Remember that purple is the official color of royalty and a regal color for plus size women to wear!
Fur has long gone out of the mainstream plus size fashion market but there’s a reason it’s been there in the first place. It’s pretty, it’s soft and it’s warm – it makes the perfect accent for a winter or fall coat.

Like we said before, scarves are an essential part of this time of year, especially for plus size fashion, but that doesn’t mean that you should go for any old boring scarf. Fur is in, and that means that scarves this season are embellished with soft and wild accents.

Come in From the Cold
It’s getting colder and colder every day. If you already took out your winter wardrobe out of the closet, maybe it’s time to go out and accessorize or get something completely new to make you feel like an ice queen on those cool and grey mornings, or during that upcoming holiday party and all those family get-togethers? Time for some hot toddies and retail therapy!
