7 Plus Size Workwear Items That Will Instantly Jazz Up Your Office Look!
Now that more than a few of you have been asking about plus size workwear options, what to wear and where to get them, AND as we’re on the cusp of spring and the novelties are arriving, we thought we’d help!
The updated LBD (Little Black Dress)
If you’re a fan of black and white and a great wrap dress, this is a great option. You can combine your LBD with the Pantone color, viva magenta, a bold print or metallic in your shoes for spring.
The fun thing about an LBD is the possibility of endless accessories… Here you can add or change belts and throw on some cute high heels for a desk chic dinner!
The relaxed cardigan:
Not sure what to wear with those *really cute* ankle pants? Try a longline cardigan to stretch your legs and protect you from shaky office conditions OR swap it out and dress up your look with a floor length cardigan – perfect for spring and early fall.
In this case, you can also create a more relaxed suiting option by pairing your cardigan with a matching skirt!

Sometimes a great skirt suit can do all the work in your closet. Just like a pantsuit can be worn three ways, so can your skirt! Especially if your skirt is versatile enough to mix and match with other pieces of clothing in your closet.
With that in mind, we will always appreciate a great midi length skirt. A midi skirt can be professional for work and sensual for downtime, with a conscious change of accessories and your top.
The Updated Pants:
Pants with a high waist, cropped legs and wide legs will definitely be a couple of silhouettes you will find in pants this year! Spice up even the dullest work suit with high-waisted trousers in a fun hue.
Or go tapered and sleek with these on playful checks or bold hues. Who says you can have casual wear all the fun?
Well, not everyone is a fan of prints. Prints can be very personal!
BUT when done right, prints can be a timeless way to add a little taste and personality to your wardrobe. If your job allows for a business-casual vibe, jazz up your outfit by adding bold prints to your office look.
The options are limitless and it’s a great way to add your personal style to your business style.
The fancy suit:
Suit can be seen as boring right away, but thanks to the diverse plus size brands and designers we have some fun ways to bring colour, style and even a bit of luxury to our plus size workwear collection…
If you decide to invest in a great suit and your funds are limited, be sure to choose a neutral shade and buy from a brand that brings in seasonal silhouettes but keeps the color or manufacture similar. Think of Henning, Pari Passu and even Eloquii.
This way you can add items one at a time knowing your suit will always fit. This keeps your wardrobe fresh all the time without having to reinvent the options every season.
The stylish flats:
Soothe your feet with stylish flats and put those pesky heels aside. It seems like with the pandemic and the rise of plus size loungewear came the casualness of flats too! We want comfort and style, and luckily we have a few options to play with in a wide range.
