Workwear Wednesday: 3 Super Chic Summer Work Outfits For Plus Size Women

Hey there curvy ladies,

As much as we love getting cute, we can’t forget about work wear. Whether you work for a laid back corporation or a “No dress down Friday’s” kind of environment, we have some dashing office looks perfect for you.  When shopping for work pieces remember to look for things that can take you from office to dinner. I have certainly been caught up in just having “work clothes”. The creator of Stylish Curves, Alissa is always showing us how to wear fashionably work pieces that can be worn many places. Let’s look at some examples.

This look is perfect for the woman that is constantly on the go. The kind of professional who spends most of her day running from one meeting to the next. She barely has time to eat lunch. A chic sheath dress with a cute pair of ballet flats offers comfort and style. The necklace adds a subtle flair. As I said before, you want pieces that can take you from day to night. Switch the shoes and jewelry, and this dress instantly becomes a date night worthy outfit with nude pumps, a clutch, and a chunky necklace. The ballet slippers are great for running Saturday errands with denim shorts and off the shoulder top.

This look is the ultimate  summer work outfit. A sleeveless button up shirt with a tailored pair of shorts and a fun pair of printed  sandals makes for a simple yet classic ensemble. If your office gets really cold during the day, you can pair this look with colored blazer or cardigan. The shoes can be worn again with your favorite body con dress when you’re out with the girls. The shorts can dressed down with converse sneakers and a graphic tee. See what I mean about pieces that work double duty?

H&M Plus Suit Shorts $29.95

If your the kind of woman that likes to break the rules, this look is perfect for you. The polka dot skirt adds personality and attitude to your summer work wardrobe. The color block skirt is definitely a play on the normal pencil skirt. It’s fun and you can wear it to dinner with the boo or an after work networking party. The polka dot top can be worn with distressed skinny jeans and the simple pumps shown above.
