It’s inevitable: a few of you will get to fall and find out that your coat will not warm you against the continuously chilling winds. Oh, it’s not the coat’s fault – time takes us all sooner or later. So you have to invest – and I mean invest – in a new one. Here’s a few ideas to send you on your way – based on style, yes, but also so you can find something that suits you. Some women are trench coat women. I know I have trench coat moods. But really, left to my own devices, at my truest self? I’m all about a photographer’s vest.
If you can’t find something great here, you can always use Fat Chic Clothing Search. to grab your perfect fall to winter plus size coat.

Â The Travel Vest (pockets!)
Sometimes it’s just easier to take it down to the basics – and keep it that way with a lot of pockets. While women get shortchanged on pockets, men don’t. Nothing stopping us from wearing a perfectly practical coat – whether you want to look like a modernday Lois Lane or just prefer to have your hands free.
Seriously, I bought one since I travel more than I used to. It’s AWESOME and actually saves me a lot of worry.
