Sometimes, finding stylish plus size clothing is hard enough, but finding appropriate clothing for the office is another struggle. If you are plus-sized, you don’t have to be relegated to wearing boring slack or tops, because there are plenty of great options out there that will complement your body and help you feel fabulous in whatever you wear. Since a new wardrobe – especially one to wear to the office – can be pretty pricey, here are a few options to fill out the closet:
Wide-legged Trousers – The wide leg trousers are perfect for those with wider hips because the width of the pant legs balance out the hips. A high-rise trouser fits many women well and don’t gap at the waistband like low-rise trousers often do. Accentuate the length of the leg by pairing wide-legged trousers with a pointed-toe shoe.
Wrap Top – A wrap top is universally flattering to many body types. The neckline complements the bust line, while the wrapping feature accentuates the waist and provides shape to the garment. Wrap tops come in all types of patterns and fabric styles to offer versatility throughout the changing seasons. Pair a wrap top with slacks, jeans or skirts and heels to create a perfect office look. If you want to dress it up for a night out, the neckline is ideal for showing off a beautiful necklace.
Belted Jackets or Vests – When the weather turns colder, a belted jacket or vest is a warm option. Many jackets are too bulky for a plus-sized frame, so the belted feature accentuates the waist and gives you a waistline. For the indoors, a belted vest works perfectly for layering during the fall and winter, while a jacket is ideal to wear outdoors.
Dress – If you are self-conscious when it comes to wearing dresses, a dark colored-fabric with delicate pattern is ideal. Look for a dress that offers ruching a wrap feature to accentuate the waist and pair the dress with your favorite heels or wedges. During winter, pair a dress with leggings, boots and a shrug to keep warm while still spicing up the wardrobe.
These are just a few articles of clothing that can improve your work wardrobe, while staying on a budget. Choose clothes you will feel comfortable and confident in and that offer versatility so you can take many options through the seasons – that way you don’t need to update the wardrobe every few months if you don’t want to.
