Jackets are a must and not only for the winter season. There are days when nature plays peek-a-boo changing from sunny to cold and back to sunny. Jackets do not just help to keep the chill at bay but also acts as a major style statement. Plus size jackets are now available in an eclectic collection of styles that you can team up with almost any outfit. Go for slim-fit plus size jackets if you want to contour the unflattering areas and accentuate your waist, this also instantly give you an hourglass shape. Avoid double-breasted jackets if you are top heavy and if you want to take the focus away from your hips and buttocks, try a good fitting leather jacket. Also, recently there has been an influx of plus size jackets in light leather- apparently this fabric is so light that you can actually wear this even during the summer season, and it has the appeal of leather.
