5 Plus-Size Pieces for Transitioning into Fall

Transitioning into fall can be quite a challenge, especially when the weather is often unpredictable early on.  To make things a bit easier for you this season, I'm sharing a few tips and some plus-size options that should make transitioning your wardrobe this fall a breeze.

Lightweight Coats
Though it's not quite cold enough for wool coats, as the temperatures drop, a lightweight coat will definitely be a necessity.  You can stick with basic black or neutrals or punch it up a notch by opting for a pop of color.

Love It or Leave It: Denim/Chambray Dresses (Plus Size)

Denim and chambray dresses are having a major moment this season, and it's clear that they'll be sticking around for the fall.  However, as much as I love seeing these dresses on others, for whatever reason, I haven't been able to find one that works for me (despite the fab plus-size options below). So, for now, I think I'll be leaving this trend alone, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't give it a try.

What do think of chambray and denim dresses?  Do they work for you or not?

Trend to Try - Flared Jeans (Plus-Size Options)

The '70s revival has been in full swing since spring and I couldn't be more excited that it will be here to stay through the fall (and, who knows, maybe beyond).  I love all things '70s! The prints, suede and, of course, flared jeans, make this trend so fun to try.

While I usually prefer skinny jeans because I love the way they fit me, I'd like to mix it up a bit with a pair of flared jeans. To modernize them, I 'd pair them with a fitted button-down blouse or longline sleeveless blazer and a great pair of pumps.

So, if you're dying to try the flared jeans trend as much as I am, why not try one or two of the plus-size options I've put together below.

Trend to Try - Off the Shoulder Tops

If there is one trend I love this season, it is off-the-shoulder blouses.  Perhaps it is because I already own my fair share of them (see how I've worn some herehere, here, here and here), but I absolutely live for this type of blouse.  There's just something so alluring to me about showing just your shoulders.  It's a nice alternative to exposing cleavage, at least to me.

Below, I've put together a few options that would make great additions to any wardrobe.  I actually own the black one pictured in the center in the 1st row and love it because it works with so many of the items in my wardrobe, particularly skirts.
