Coat Watch 2011

By Silhouettes1 · September 7, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

No one’s ready to think about coats yet, but fall is on the way… and that means that you’re going to need something to keep you warm.

Here are some fall-style plus-size jackets that, while they won’t work in the middle of January, will still keep you warm through the fall.

A swing coat is one option. Loose-fitting and flowing, a swing coat is a warm layer that looks super stylish. This shorter-style swing jacket is a nice transitional piece from fall to winter. It goes well with any professional outfit or nice jeans.

Another idea is a corduroy shirt jacket. Pull this on for any casual day or weekend wear. The corduroy is comfortable and stylish, and the accents add a fun flair.

Stay tuned for a post later in the fall when we’ll discuss the best winter coat options.

New Bags for Fall

By Silhouettes1 · September 7, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

With the change of seasons comes a good time to transition not just your wardrobe, but also some of your accessories—like your bags. Summer beach bags and sandals go into the closet until next year, and out come the neutral and colorful bags to take you through the colder months of the year.

A hobo bag like this one is a good option. Simple, classic, goes with everything. It’s got a shoulder strap or a handle, depending on what works for you (and of course, you can switch it up).

Another idea is a bucket bag like this one. It holds everything, thanks to some expandable side slits, but it isn’t huge or cumbersome to carry.

And you can add some bling to your wardrobe with a rhinestone bag. Faux alligator with pewter hardware, this bag has some serious flair.

What’s your favorite kind of bag to carry?
