Tiger Stripe Coat

Rawrr! That’s what I thought when I first saw Carmakoma’s Surpreame tiger stripe coat. Then I took a closer look and realized it wasn’t really tiger striped, more like wavy repeat pattern stripe but still pretty cool looking. I like the contrast of the black quilted sleeves too.

I love this tiger print-ish coat from Carmakoma.

It is available in sizes 12 to 24 (US sizing) for $252 US. When I was at the bank this week it was in our favor but make sure you check before you do any shopping because it changes so quickly. And remember your price points for duty.

Down Filled Warmth

Tired of polyester fill coats? Want a little down filled splendor to keep you warm this winter? Check out Navabi’s Zizzi down filled coat with a furry removable hood. I especially love the bright yellow “curcuma” but it also comes in black or purple. Unlike other puff coats we have seen in the past this one actually looks good on.

This gorgeous bright yellow down filled coat is from Navabi.

If you are unfamiliar with Navabi, their clothing (sizes 12 to 28) is shipped from Germany worldwide, in this case the shipping would be free. Consider yourself warned about the price though, as this coat is not cheap, at $400 it would definitely be an investment for keeping warm (80% down and 20% feathers).

Coats from the UK

Canada is not the only place to shop for plus size outerwear. Here are a few of my picks from shops in the UK:

From ASOS Curve

ASOS Curve is a small plus size brand within the ASOS site. And is one of the most popular hot spots for shopping plus in the UK. They offer US sizes 14 to 22 but check their measurements as I find they fit much bigger than a 22. These three plus size coats are my favorite:

  • Button Swing Coat, $140
  • Military Fit and Flare Coat, $160
  • Peplum Coat with Belt, $189

ASOS Curve offers fashion forward styling and fun bold colors.

From Evans

Evans’ has a large selection of plus size coats for sizes 14 to 32 (UK) although most tend to be on the dark side. These three are my favorite:

  • Stone Faux Fur Trim Padded Parka Coat, $115
  • Teal Faux Fur Collar Coat, $150
  • Navy Long Quilted Coat, $115

I find Evans fits smaller so again, check sizing information to get a proper fit instead of relying on the number conversion sizing.
