37 Plus Size Suede Clothing Gems To Get You Through Transitional Weather — PHOTOS
It can be easy to lament the passing of summer as you find yourself exchanging slip dresses and fruity cocktails for baggy coats and lukewarm mulled wine. In such moments of deflation, however, plus size suede clothing (the faux stuff included) might be just the thing to pep you up. Summer's great and all, but there's nothing quite like luxuriating in the fabric of the gods: The kind of material that makes you feel regal and fancy-free in equal measure.
Because the '70s seems to be the decade that the style world just can't let go of, suede is back for the autumn/winter season yet again. It's not just back on the runways and in the fast fashion favorites of the S through L crowd, though: It's offered by plenty of plus size retailers, too.
As for you fatshion-loving babes, that means you can keep up with the trends and stay warm through the pesky transitional weather month known as November. Chances are the temps will be in a perpetual state of flux for a while, but suede is just the thing to get you through it all. Coming in light, heavy, and intermediate levels of thickness and warmth, there is no fall day that can't be made better with the addition of this smooth-to-the-touch leathery goodness.
So if you want to wrap your body in a piece of sartorial magic that'll probably make you feel ready for a velvet nap, here are 37 plus size suede pieces to slip into.
