When it comes to buying and wearing the best plus size blazers that you can buy, we offer many different styles and cuts of blazers and suit jackets, so that they fit your body and your lifestyle perfectly. Many of them have a touch of stretch woven into them, so you not only look good, but feel great all day long.
Fall Blazers Like spring blazers and jackets, this style typically comes in rayon, rayon blends, lightweight wool, or wool blends. Fall blazers or suit jackets may come in burgundy, fir green, or deep caramel colors.
While people use the terms “blazer,” “jacket,” and “suit jacket” interchangeably, there are differences between them.
A women’s blazer is a stand-alone item that can be paired with skirts, jeans, chinos, or trousers. Typically worn in professional environments, they can be made with a variety of fabrics that range from tweed to polyester. Because a blazer can be styled less like a traditional suit jacket, they can come in prints, florals, plaids, and even color blocking patterns.
Suit jackets have a more structured design than a blazer. Traditionally jackets are worn during occasions that call for a conservative dress code. Jackets are usually more fitted than a blazer, coordinate with a matching piece (like a skirt or pant), and are meant to be worn over a light layer. Suit jackets generally come black, charcoal gray, navy, light gray, and beige.
When buying a plus size blazer, keep these points in mind for the perfect fit:
The blazer should be fitted—but not tight—and the shoulder seams should sit at the edge of your shoulders. When the blazer is on, you should have full range of movement in your arms.
A blazer should lightly skim over the body
A blazer’s sleeves should hit mid-thumb when arms are down at the side.
If you’re between two sizes, buy the larger size, as it’s easier to have the blazer tailored to fit your body.
Close the blazer with the middle button to ensure that the blazer fits well all over. If it doesn’t, try on either a different style or size.
Plus size women’s blazers are designed to finish off or create an outfit by pulling separate pieces into a cohesive look. While the classic blazer can be worn to work, think about pairing a blazer with trousers or chinos with a top. Blazers can also be worn off-duty. Think: paired with high-waist jeans and heels for a night out. Bottom line: adding a blazer to your look instantly elevates your style.
When choosing the right blazer for your body type, always start with how the shoulders fit. If you have broad shoulders, look for blazers that are less structured, or collarless blazers. If you have small or narrow shoulders, look for styles that are structured. Hourglass body types (curvy with a small waist) can look for fitted blazers that button at the midsection. Double-breasted styles and short blazers will also look great. With Inverted Triangle body types (broader across the shoulders than hips), look for blazers and suit jackets that have soft shoulders and have details at the hip or lower. If you have a Rectangle body type (waist and shoulders are equal in width), you’ll look good in most styles. To play up your long torso, try a belted blazer, blazers that hit below the hip, and double-breasted styles. Apple body types (narrow shoulders and hips, with a full bust and waist) will look fabulous in open-front blazers, as the long lines elongate your frame. Long duster jackets will do the same trick. Pear body types (with narrow shoulders, small bust, who are wider in the hips and thighs) should look for blazers that have squared or structured shoulders, or blazers that don’t stop at the hip. A cropped blazer or longline blazer will elongate your frame. Looking for something more casual? Check out our collection of denim jackets and moto jackets.
