Plus Size Clothing Styles for Work

I think us large gals look awesome in business plus size clothing. We can do so much with a tailored suit with a skirt and a crisp white blouse. The added bonus is using tailored clothes to our advantage, playing up our strengths and hiding our weaknesses. What is not to like?

Let us see what we can do with the classic suit. There is so much that can be done creatively here. We can go three pieces with pants, vest and jacket, or two piece with a jacket and skirt. The versatility is endless.

Those who are proportioned, a la Marilyn Monroe, can do so much with this look. Consider a tailored single-breasted blazer with a knee-length skirt and a jewel-toned blouse. Maybe a pair of kitten heels to finish off the look. I think this is professional, feminine, and sexy all at once.

For those who have great calves but little else to flaunt, go with a below-the-knee pencil skirt.  Borrow a shirt from the casual plus size clothing area with a princess seamed shirt. The shirt gives great illusions of having a waist and a bust, while the length and slim cut of the skirt draw the eyes downward towards those great gams. If you’ve got ‘em, flaunt ‘em!

And let us not leave out the top heavy gals, shall we? This can be one of the trickiest shapes to balance out. Having the chest stick out above everything else means everyone’s eyes are going to go, well, there.  Stay sober in your choice of colors, although narrow pinstripes are a definite yes. Wear tailored jackets as much as possible, even though it may go against your grain. The reason for this is that a shapeless cut looks that much worse. I want my eye to be drawn away from the bust, not to it.

Business plus size clothing provides plenty of options for girls with curves. Go have fun and play with the endless configurations this style provides!
