There are many challenges that plus size bodies face when it comes to fashion. The latest trends can seem just out of reach, and even the basics can be a problem when they all come with cold shoulders! One of the problems we can face daily is finding clothes we like (and that fit properly), that are suitable for work or office wear. In an ideal world, we could all wear whatever we want because clothes don’t affect your an ability to do your job, but sadly that isn’t so. If you’re anything like me, you want to feel chic but still maintain the level of professionalism that is expected in certain environments. I wanted to share some plus size bodies in work wear looks to hopefully send some inspiration your way!

Em puts cobalt blue and black together which is a fab way to bring colour into your work wear. Everyone looks good in cobalt blue! Pointy flats with black trousers make this look more on trend whilst still being great for work.

Stephanie shows that a cute tea dress and opaque tights is an easy way to be on trend but still fit that ‘office’ look. The ankle boots are such a good addition to this outfit.

A pinafore dress with a crisp white shirt is such a classic look for a reason, Natalie gives her monochrome look a little something extra with brown ankle boots.

A pencil skirt is a work wear classic for good reason. They always look great and can be worn so many different ways. Geri wears hers with flats and a cute sleeveless blazer. You hardly ever see flats with pencil skirts, but they are so much more comfortable than heels for a 9-5!

Summer brings with it the struggle to keep cool, whilst also sticking to a dress code. Nancy looks incredible in this maxi length shirt dress, the fit of it looks nice and airy for those hot days.

A Peter Pan collar can make any outfit feel a bit fancier whilst also being good for work. I love this simple swing dress on Isha, without the collar it might not quite feel ‘officey’, but with it it definitely is. You can buy Peter Pan collars and necklaces these days too, in all kinds of fancy designs and materials, so you can add them to any outfit you like.

Wrap over styles work for work in both shirts and dresses, it’s also an awesome way to bring brighter prints and funky colours into your wardrobe for work like Sharon does here.

Blazers have been having a real moment in plus size fashion, Charli shows off this androgynous look that is so sharp and contemporary.

Work wear doesn’t have to be all blacks and dark colours, Chloe looks sublime in this super bright green and pink combo! Don’t be afraid to bring colour into your work wear if that’s what you love.

Amber looks so effortlessly fashionable in this sheer polka dot shirt, the blue bag and burgundy shoes are such a lush touch to brighten the outfit up!

While Stephanie might be wearing this jumpsuit with trainers here, she’s worn it without the belt and smarter heels for work too. A jumpsuit can be a really good option for work, and it’s easy to change it to a night time or more casual look with a few quick changes! Versatility in your wardrobe with pieces you can wear for work, and outside of work, make investing in more expensive pieces much more worthwhile and affordable.

Who doesn’t love a red head in green? Em shows that you can rock your curves at the office in a wiggle dress and still look like you’ve walked off the cat walk if that’s your thing.

I love me some animal print and mesh, so this was my way of doing work wear in a way that still felt like ‘me’. It’s important to try and keep your identity if you can, even when bound by guidelines and restrictions. You better believe I really do wear my biker boots with everything!
