I know, it’s Queensland and usually, I avoid doing these plus size jackets posts. I hate seeking out all these gorgeous pieces and then never getting to buy or wear them. Queensland life means that for one’ish month a year I need a decent jacket, the rest of the year a jumper will do. It’s a hard life, you know? Haha.
Buuuuuut I’m trying to be a little more responsive and a little less all about me. Trust me, it won’t hurt me to try. Haha. So, I started searching and putting together a list. Some are winter at a Queensland level type of coat or jacket. Others, are legit “it’s cold and I need actual warmth” style.
I find the biggest challenge when looking for a plus size jacket or coat is that usually, they are all black, all the time. Now, I love black, but not everyone does. There’s a case to be made for having something a little more versatile like a tan, nude or grey. This year, I’ll be picking up a grey coat to replace the one I lost. It will work with my predominately black wardrobe and add a much-needed layer of colour. So, with that in mind, I’ve tried to source some great black alternatives where I could.
