Coats That Don't Make Me Cringe

After a nice, long warm fall here in Chicago, winter has finally arrived! I've had to pull out the heavy coats and once again, I bemoan the fact that there aren't cuter coats for us plus-size gals. I see adorable, colorful coats everywhere--complete with buttons, bows, and ruffles of all types--but coats in larger sizes are often baggy, plain, unfashionable, and come in dull colors. Well, maybe things are looking up! This year, some designers have noticed the discrepancy and have come out with some super cute options. Here are a few of the cutest coats of the season!

Just As You Are is one of the most promising new line of coats. Instead of picking out a coat in your size, you enter your measurements, and the site recommends the coats that flatter your special shape. I have 3 that I'm totally lusting after:

Arizona - Faux beaver and faux fox fur = Awesome. I've seen this coat in real life-Check out Jaye Rockin' it on Curvatude
The Alabama - Not only is it named after my home state, it's the most adorable motorcycle jacket ever! And the FUR!
The Angola is not for the faint of heart. This will attract mucho attention--You can WERK it!
Jessica London also came out with some awesome coats this season! And...they are all on sale right now!
Wool Coat by Taillisme - The wide notched collar frames the face perfectly, while the nipped in waist  and darts help the fabric lay nicely over hips and tummies. 
Wool Blend Coat with Ruffles - Gorgeous Ivory color brightens up the winter gray days. The position of ruffles down the front pull the eye vertically, which is flattering and fun.
Love love love this Sherpa Coat. It comes in winter white and black and is just perfect for the not-so-frigid days this season. 
And another gorgeous, over-the-top option for those of us who love glamour: the Faux Fur Coat.
Asos Curve has some funkier options, for the inner 60s chick in all of us.

This Pleated Swing Coat in gorgeous bright blue is perfect for twirling in the snow!
Short Coat with Faux Fur Trim -- AHHHHH LOVE!
This Belted Tweed Coat has Sweater Sleeves! Perfect for a casual Friday night out with friends at a pub.
Have you found any other coats that don't make you cringe this year?? Send me a link!!
