Plus Size Transitional Jackets for Spring

Posted on March 18 2015

Ask anyone in the fashion industry, the #1 item you need for your spring wardrobe is a transitional piece. Whether it be a jacket, coat, or cape, this piece will take you from chilly weather to much more temperate days. We gathered a handful of our favorite plus size transitional jackets here. Oh and there's a special offer at the end of the post. Enjoy!

1. MICHAEL Michael Kors Navy Leather Moto Jacket

Nothing says luxury like leather. That’s why we love this moto jacket. It’s the perfect piece to throw over that slightly-too-summery floral dress or for topping boyfriend jeans and an oversized tee for a total edgy look.   

2. Red Topper Jacket from Twelve North

$175 - Shop it
This red topper is so much more than a jacket. It can literally be an outfit by itself, that’s how much of a classically elegant statement it makes. It is quite light weight so you won’t be too warm with the (hopefully) rising temperatures. Double buttons and side pockets complete the detailed look. 









3.Hooded Olive Green Anorak from Eileen Fisher

We love the versatility of this anorak by Eileen Fisher. It’s a great outer layer for spring that can be worn casually over jeans and a tee or dressed up over a camel skirt for an allover Ralph Lauren-ish safari look. Anoraks are a bit like trench coats in that they will never go out of style.  If olive green isn't your thing, try the navy blue plus size anorak we have here at Twelve North. 



4. Vegan Leather and Cream JUNAROSE Jacket from Twelve North

$129  - Shop it

We’re suckers for anything elegant with a little downtown edge and boy does this jacket have it. It’s a beautiful cream color with vegan leather piping and sleeves. To add to the edginess of the leather, the sleeves are partially quilted. The beautiful round collar on this jacket draw attention to collar bones. 

5.Duster Coat with Waterfall neck in Lilac from ASOS. 

This Asos Curve coat is everything. It’s mid-weight fabric and open in the front. It’s designed to have an oversized fit on any figure. Seriously, how gorgeous is this coat? It looks like it costs a million bucks. Because of it’s mid-weight we seriously hope you’ll only get a month or so wear out of it, but it will certainly be in style for years to come.

6. Light Denim Jacket from DKNY Jeans.

What list of transitional pieces would be complete without a denim jacket? We love the freshness of this light wash versus the medium and darker washes that were in for so long. This plus size version of the classic will look great over skimpy summer dresses as well as polished over a bold colored pencil skirt and button down for work.
