I’m a huge Mark Twain fan, even more for his fabulous quotes than for his books. He once said, “In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.” That combination of surprise and variety of the weather is part of Spring’s appeal, but it also means that one jacket does not fit all weather. Fortunately, there are more than enough plus size jackets and coats for every style and every style of weather. Start blooming!
Rain in the Forecast
The Jessica London Raincoat is lightweight and the vivid orange and vibrant lime will put a smile on your face even on the rainiest days. The Jessica London Short Trench Coat is my personal favorite spring jacket because the navy with teal and the tan with orange is so practical and sophisticated that you won’t want to take it off when you go indoors…may need to move that behind-the-door-hanger to the front! Roaman’s best selling rain jacket is the Ruffle Trench. It’s so feminine in a fit and flare instant hourglass creator that it’s as flattering as it is fashionable. Classic in black and fashion forward in ruby or grey, it is functional and fun.
Spring is a tricky season because it can still get very cold, but you are just so over putting on a heavy coat. The answer is Roaman’s Hooded Nylon Jacket in any of six great colors (turq and plum are perfect). It’s a best seller plus size jacket because it has a fun, relaxed fit for comfort and for fitting over sweaters, is fully lined with soft-brushed fleece for warmth, and has a casual, fresh and effortless look.
Jacket for All Seasons
Woman Within Anorak Jacket is so versatile, it’s really two spring jackets in one! It has that athletic-influenced Spring trend, comes in 12 fashion forward spring colors, has a soft removable lining for cold and cool weather, water resistant fabric, and adjustable drawstrings at hood, waist and hem for a perfect fit over anything. It’s also high-tech washable, quick-drying Taslon® nylon, and is probably the one jacket that is perfect through three seasons.
It wouldn’t be spring without leather and suede jackets in great colors. The Jessica London Plus Size Leather Jacket takes styling to a whole new level. Start with 9 incredible colors, the mandarin collar that is one of Spring’s best trends, and seamed details for a great fit. It’s casual but polished so it looks as great with a pencil skirt as it does with jeans. If you’re the trend setter in the group, the Jessica London Leather Jacket with Zip Front in Boysenberry, Metallic Silver or Metallic Bronze is a “where did you get it?” kind of jacket. A slightly longer length with a face-flattering stand-up color, it’s a perfect spring jacket!
