Before the plus size fashion movement, plus size outerwear for us curvy fashionistas was just not flattering! We only had one or two drab colors, no fun integrated into our options… until the last few years! Brands are listening, giving us fashion, form, and function with our fashion choices! Leather, faux fur, suede, paired with fun silhouettes and shapes?! Yes!
Fashion powerhouses like Asos.com, Forever21.com and Missguided.com are among the growing number of brands that are catering to the comfortable, detailed, statement and classic outerwear needs us curvy girls crave! After scouring plenty of websites for examples of the latest pieces of outerwear that needs to be in your wardrobe, we thought it would be better if we featured YOU!
You ladies are really killing #TCFStyle on Instagram (are you following us over there? @thecurvyfashionista) and we had to show you just how your fellow homegirls are making it work! Without further ado, we present the stylish readers of TCF slaying their outerwear this fall/winter season!
