Plus Size Cold Weather Essentials -- For a Steal!

As temperatures slowly begin to dip, we reach into the back of the closet or underneath the bed to retrieve the snuggly scarves, sweaters, and coats we'd hidden away. Inevitably, there's always a piece (or three) that needs to be updated for the season and some that have been far too well-loved to make it through the next few months.

Finding the perfect figure-flattering pieces to add to your wardrobe can be tough on a budget, but fortunately, Lane Bryant is having a 40 percent off pre-Thanksgiving sale that just so happens to have all the essentials you need, at a price your wallet will like.

Moderation is still important -- to avoid going credit card crazy, I've done all the shopping for you!


Try a bold color

Pick up a classic peacoat in an expected color and make it your new neutral. Try red, green, or navy for a vivid contrast against the colorless winter landscape.

Check out the Funnel Neck Peacoat ($89.70 after the discount) in Alpine Green. When the wind blows extra hard, pull up the funnel neck to cover your mouth and ears for added warmth.

Get more for your money

If you already have a peacoat in your closet, try spicing up your look with edgier fashion-forward pieces that can often be out of range when you're on a budget, like suede or leather.

Look for a leather motorcycle jacket with clean lines, like the Zip Leather Moto ($137.70 after the discount). Try layering leather or suede jackets with chunky knit scarves and sweaters for those extra chilly nights.

Score an item from your wishlist

Dying to try the over the knee boot trend, but can't find a wide calf option? Opt for a flat style to keep the look casual and avoid looking like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.

The Over the Knee Riding Boot ($45 after the discount) has an extra wide calf with a slightly rounded toe for an updated take on the classic riding boot. Try pairing them with the Jean-Style Knit Pant ($29.70 after the discount) for an effortless look.

From now until November 7, save 40 percent off everything (except Spanx and gift cards) at Lane Bryant (in store and online) with code 00040059.
