33 Plus Size Jackets For Spring That Are Equal Parts Practical & Glorious — PHOTOS

When it comes to springtime dressing, there's nothing that excites me more than the potential for dozens of variations on the plus size jacket. I already have far too many, considering the fact that there are only seven days in a week, four weeks in a month, and that true "springtime" in New York City only lasts about 30 seconds. This year has been unseasonably warm, though, meaning that while I'd usually be wearing a goose feather down coat at the beginning of March, I can now expand my jacket horizons into lighter fabrics and breezier designs.

All of that is to say that it's perfectly OK to use the weather to justify your insatiable desire for amazing spring jackets, which is exactly what I plan to do. Luckily, plus size spring fashion is serving more options than ever before, meaning there's a jacket (or 10) for every style, look, and overall aesthetic. Whether you prefer the vintage charm of a throwback trench or modern cut with unexpected details, there's likely something for you on this list. The other great thing about the increase in spring plus size outerwear availability is that there are options available at a variety of price points. So ditch the winter gear and start plotting your springtime jacket moves.
