Brave the cold in style with these 10 hot and trendy plus size winter coats happening now!
1. Puffer/Quilted Jackets
Puffer jackets are stuffed either down or synthetic materials that give a high level of warmth while maintaining a very lightweight feel. These coats are sewn in a unique design that creates “puffy” areas in between the stitches of their quilt-like pattern. Avoid unwanted bulk by choosing a style that fits closely to your curves and/or add a belt to draw attention to your waist.

2. Moto Jackets
A moto, or motorcycle, jacket is a short, usually leather or faux leather, jacket that fits closely to the body and is often decorated with zips and studs. To kick up the trendiness a few notches, select a vivid shade of yellow, red, pink, or green.

3. Trench Coats
Time to channel your inner Dick Tracy! Making its debut in the trenches of World War I, this classic coat can be made of a variety of waterproof fabrics, including leather, and is especially trendy right now in the edgy two-tone style.
NOTE: Unlike original trench coats, most modern ones do not have a hood so you will still need an umbrella on snowy or rainy days.

4. Shearling Coats
Retro lovers swoon over shearling coats. Introduced in the 1970s, these luxurious and very warm coats are created from processed lambskin, sheepskin, or pelt, resulting in a heavy, soft, natural fleece material. Available in real or faux fur!

5. Reversible Coats
Talk about 2 for the price of 1! These double-duty coats are extra versatile as they can be worn inside out for a completely different look.

6. Fur Collars
Whether you choose real or faux, fur is a timeless style that evokes high-class and sophistication. If you’d rather not sport fur head to toe, fur collars are perfect for just a touch of sophistication.

7. Statement Sleeves
Sleeves are a great way to show your style! Look for sleeves with embellishments like studs, jewels, beads, or patterns or simply extra volume. Steer clear of too much volume by making sure the coat itself fits closely to your body.

8. Fringe Jackets
Another rebirth of the 50s, 60s, and 70s is definitely the fringe jacket. Inspired by both Native American and African styles, it was made even more popular by performers like Elvis Presley and later Cher and will probably keep returning to runways until the end of time.
NOTE: If you have a cat, store fringe jackets well out of their reach or you will very likely find yourself without a single strand left!

9. Floral Prints
Yes, you read that right! Florals are no longer relegated solely to spring and summer. Big, bold splashes of colorful florals will keep you warm all winter long with the memory of spring.

10. Animal Prints
It’s certainly a jungle out there and leopard, zebra, cheetah, and tiger prints help you call on your inner spirit animal. The boldest of the bold can go with full-length animal print and those who want to roar a little more quietly should look for coats with smaller sections of animal print, such as at the collar, cuffs, or lining.
