Trend to Try - Statement Stripes

I don't know if it's my love of all things black and white (see here), but I am obsessed with statement stripes for spring.  What I love most about them is that they aren't some crazy fad.  Stripes are a classic print that can be worn long after they are trendy.

If you are looking to add some stripes to your wardrobe this season, I have put together some great plus-size options below.  I am absolutely obsessed with the options from ASOS, particularly the ASOS Curve Sleeveless Maxi Shirt (1st row - right) and the ASOS Curve Bardot Dress (3rd row - left).  Which pieces are you loving?

Also, if you are looking for ways to wear stripes, check out my previous outfit posts (here and here).

Currently Craving: Plus Size Coats for Spring

Today marks the official start of spring!  However, if you're like me and you live in the Northeast, you cannot join in the excitement considering that we are currently in the middle of a snow storm. Ugh.

Anyway, before I go off on a rant about the cold weather, I want to share some great plus-size spring coats for those of you who, like me, still must face cold winter weather in the spring.  My favorite of these options are the ASOS Curve cocoon duster coat (1st row - middle) and the Simply Be waterfall mac coat (last row - right).  Which coat would you rock this spring?

Trend to Try - Military Green

This season, the runways were full of fun, interesting and unexpected spring trends.  One theme that I certainly did not expect to be everywhere was military green (see here).  While this is a color that I absolutely love, I generally reserve it for the fall (see here and here), but I am super excited about including it in my spring and summer looks.

So, if you're loving the military green trend for spring, I've put together some amazing plus-size pieces that would be great additions to your wardrobe.  My favorite pieces are the ASOS Curve boiler suit (1st row - right), ASOS Curve pants (2nd row - left), and ASOS Curve utility blazer (last row - left).

Designer Spotlight: Marina Rinaldi

If there's one thing I am always looking to add to my wardrobe, it's a few great investment pieces - high-quality items that I can wear over and over and not worry about having to replace them over time.  While there are a few high-end plus-size brands, Marina Rinaldi is definitely one of my favorites (see here for another high-end plus-size designer I love).  I discovered them over a year ago (see here) and I am still consistently impressed with the beautiful pieces they continue to produce.

Currently Craving: Plus Size Blush Pink Coats

While the official start of spring is 18 days away, here in New York we can't exactly expect it to warm up much until a little later in the season.  So, I've been on the hunt for an adorable spring coat to add to my wardrobe in a color that I think would be just perfect - a pretty blush pink.  Below, are just a few plus-size coat options that I am currently debating about adding to my coat collection.  My favorite is the Jessica Simpson trench (1st row - left) because I love the ruffle detail.  Which one is your favorite?
