Hi, I'm Natalie...
I am 5'2 and a size 18, which means I am petite AND plus size. Those two sizing terms might seem like polar opposites, but full figures come in a variety of shapes and sizes—one of those being short! I'm here to share my petite plus style tips with you and to show the world that short, plus size women belong in fashion!
But that's the short and sweet version...learn more here:

Shearling jackets are on everyone's style wish list these days, and I have been on the hunt for plus size shearling jackets for quite a while. But I think my search is finally over because I have found a jacket I absolutely love!  

I found this plus size shearling jacket at Forever 21, and I knew I had to have it before it sold out. Sadly, the jacket is no longer in stock, but I have included a shoppable roundup of my favorite plus size shearling coats below! I know you'll find a jacket that pulls at your heart strings just as much as this one did to me! I've never successfully pulled off a denim on denim look so I knew that this outfit would be a little risky, but ultimately, I am really happy with the way this turned out. I paired plus size skinny jeans—that were a very similar wash and color to the jacket—with a plus size long sleeve to complete the look.


Aside from the shearling denim combo, the plus size teddy coats are also very similar, but have their own unique touch. You can find these teddy coats in a variety of lengths, colors, and styles making them a bold addition to your wardrobe. I currently have a beige teddy jacket that I absolutely love wearing with an all black look.

P.S. plus size teddy jackets and faux shearling coats can be bulky. They are rarely ever sleek, contouring, or "flattering." But I do not dress for flattery, I dress for comfort and excitement. As a petite and plus size woman, I have been conditioned to wear clothing that "slims" or "shrinks" my figure instead of making it stand out. However, I have worked really hard to build confidence through positive morning affirmations, which has allowed me to break free of the flattery dress code. So I just wanted to remind you that you can absolutely break away from the "plus size rules" you've been conditioned to follow. Wear clothing that makes you feel inspired and excited—even if it's outside of your comfort zone! 

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in the shearling coat, which is my usual size, and the coat fits perfectly. I am wearing a size 18 in the skinny jeans, which is my usual size, and I found that the jeans did fit, but were a little tight and felt like they were a lower waist than I was used to. Unfortunately, the size 18 is the highest size, but after wearing them for a day, they feel fine! I am wearing a size 2X in the long sleeve crop top, which is my usual size, and the shirt fits perfectly! It's very stretchy!

Forever 21 sent me this outfit to review. All opinions are 100% my own!
