Insomniac Sale Picks: Longer/Boyfriend Toppers and Caridgans

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Amy requested a few picks for longer-length or “boyfriend” cardigans or toppers, so here we go:


Boden Curzon Coatigan – was $198, now $136.60

I own this particular cardigan – or “coatigan” as Boden calls it – and it is cute and cozy. It’s a lightweight, unlined boiled wool that has great drape and isn’t itchy at all. (To me, anyway – wool tolerance varies, I know!) A great length for wearing with dresses, which was one of Amy’s goals. Available in this navy as well as charcoal gray or electric blue in sizes 2 – 16. Size availability varies by color. This similar style is a little more lightweight, but comes in four colors in regular, petite, and plus sizes. This similar style is only $34, but also only available in S-L.

longline jacket

Purpura Erizo Double Breasted Longline Jacket – was $160, now $78.99

This jacket will definitely look better worn closed so perhaps not ideal for pairing with dresses, but DANG it’s a cool shape. Double-breasted styles usually look a little bulky to my eye, but this button-free, V-neck version is sleek and chic. It’s not a sweater, but more like a blazer in a polyester weave. Available in sizes XS – XXL. Sizing runs a bit small, so check size info (might need a calculator for this one.) This black longline blazer has straight, open lapels instead but is available in sizes 14 – 24.

lucky brand stella duster

Lucky Brand Stella Duster Cardigan  – was $99, now $69.30

Much as I love the Boden coatigan, the neckline is a little limiting – it falls open naturally with some tops, but stays curved with others. As a fan of all V-necklines, I wanted to throw this option into the mix. It’s a lofty cotton/nylon blend and longer than our other options, but not quite a maxi. Available in this charcoal as well as cream (not on sale) in sizes XS – XL. Size availability varies by color. Also in 1X and 2X in cream. This similar buttoned version comes in black or navy in XS – L.

plus size duster

Yoursclothing Plus Size Jacquard Single Breasted Duster Coat – $102

And here’s the bonus/cheat offering of the night. Not on sale, but such a great shape and style, and one that MANY of my plus-sized clients have been searching for: Longer length, proportional lapels, blazer styling. Versatile but eye-catching. The button placement is high, which may deter certain figure shapes, but it can be worn open as shown here. Available in sizes 12 – 24W. This style is similar, though only available in U.S. sizes 2 – 10.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for longline jackets and dusters:

    I like this!
    Something I would love suggestions for is layering tank tops or camisoles that have wide straps that cover 3/4″ wide bra straps and aren’t racer back. I have one from Ann Taylor LOFT that I bought years ago and love, but am finding it difficult to find non-spaghetti strap tanks.
