HEAT UP YOUR WINTER WARDROBE WITH OLD NAVY WOMEN’S PLUS COLLECTION AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY ONLINE


SAN FRANCISCO - Oct. 25, 2007 – From fresh silhouettes and luxe fabrics, to figure-flattering dresses and wide-leg trousers, Old Navy Women’s Plus has all the trimmings for a stylish holiday season. The versatile separates in sizes 16-30 are designed specifically for the fashionable, plus-size woman and can be mixed or matched for winter time work, party or play. Old Navy Women’s Plus is available exclusively online at www.oldnavy.com/plus. 

“It’s important for plus-sized women to understand their body types and what silhouettes work best for them,” said Nicole Bender, public relations manager, Old Navy. “Our winter collection offers the season’s latest trends including interesting necklines, soft fabrics and flattering pants – everything designed to flatter all body shapes.”

Modern Twist to Winter Must-haves
Old Navy Women’s Plus new collection of 100 percent cashmere sweaters ($69.50-$89.50) are a guilt-free luxury and come in a range of figure-flattering silhouettes including long-sleeved babydoll ($89.50), cross-front ($89.50) or rib-knit ($69.50).  This light-weight knit is a great way to add warmth, not bulk to your look.  Kimono-sleeved ($42.50) and trapeze ($39.50) wool-blend sweaters are also great options for adding interest to your look, while finding that perfect balance to your shape.

Dress for success at work by striking well-balanced proportions. Pair wide-leg trousers ($36.50) with a cross-front top ($24.50) or a feminine lace bodice top ($36.50). 

For the holiday party circuit, choose from a wide range of styles made from ultra-flattering, comfortable fabrics. Look picture-perfect in a wrap dress ($39.50), show off your shoulders in a strapless ($36.50) or accentuate your neck in a v-neck velvet ($39.50) – available in classic black, tasteful prints or the season’s latest jewel-tone colors. 

Add extra warmth and boldness with a mod-inspired belted peacoat ($92.00),  frost-free belted anorak ($82.00) or cropped toggled peacoat ($82.00).

Snuggle up by the fire in a stylish velour zip hoodie ($24.50) and pants ($24.50) – two wardrobe essentials that won’t break the holiday bank. Or, choose the pointelle henley lounge set (top is $16.50 and pants are $19.50) that has classic styling with pretty flourishes like carved buttons and delicate patterns. Snap up extras and give the gift of indulgence to friends and family.
