Today marks the first official Fall and I've got to be honest with y'all, I've been waiting. As much as I love summer, I hate being hot and Fall is a nice relief from the heat. Along with the cooler temps, Fall also ushers in one of my favorite fashion items to style: plus size coats and jackets!

Living in the Midwest, I never know exactly what temperature to expect when I step out of my front door in Fall. The weather seems to change as much as my style aesthetic so I like to keep my closet stocked with a range of coats and jackets that fit my every mood and fashion whim. Some days, it's cool; some days, it's hot; and some days, it's snowing. I like to look cute for all of them. 

Whether I want to stay chic in the rain with a pac-a-parka or take on a light snow in a cheetah print faux fur, the right jacket can be both the perfect blend of fashion and functionality. And as the weather changes, there's no need to sacrifice style to stay ready for whatever Mother Nature throws your way! 

When shopping for fall coats and jackets, I prioritize looking for styles that make a statement but that will blend well with the items already in my closet. If I do a print, I make sure it matches with the rest of my Fall palette: wine, olive, tan and of course, black which transcends seasonal fashion. If I do a solid, I look for textural details: fur pockets, mesh detailing or a tie belt make for a bold element.
