Military to Metallics: Our Picks in Plus

by Jill Manoff

We know that great style comes in all shapes, so we were stoked to find that the most popular fall trends (finally!) come in plus sizes. Among our favorites? Faux leather, edgy embellishments and military inspiration, on top or on bottom. Read on to see three fab takes, and how to wear them this season to stay ahead of the fashion curve.

Faux Leather
If you buy one faux-leather piece this season, make it a jacket. If you buy just one jacket? Moto details are a must. This sleek, black number covers all the bases, plus works with most everything—including colored denim.

Style tip: Avoid a bulky look by skipping jackets with lots of pockets.

Edgy Embellishments
Go ahead—rebel, rebel! The latest “edgy” styles feature silhouettes you know and love, so you should have no problem staying within your comfort zone. Take this stud-dotted blouse. For a little less edge, pair it with a structured jacket. Want to rock out? Add heavy-metal extras.

Style tip: A too-big blouse will add inches to your frame, so take the time to find the perfect fit.

Military Inspiration
The military trend is invading everything this season, from sneakers and skinnies to fall-perfect layers (think fatigues-inspired toppers). Hesitant to enlist? Start with a camo tee. Ready to attack? Move to an army jacket.

Style tip: Black pants are always flattering. Wear them in place of denim, whenever!
