Plus Size Work Clothes

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

As the end of summer draws near, the new season presents an excellent opportunity to freshen up your wardrobe. If you are a working girl, this is your chance to spice things up at the office and add a little pizzazz to your 9 to 5.

If you are like me, style, comfort, and functionality are key factors when it comes to incorporating the latest trends into your closet. This season is out with the old and in with the new and SWAK Designs has you covered 7 days a week. I came across some really fabulous finds for plus size work clothes and plus size business casual attire that will have you fired up for fall and ready to juggle it all.

The Alyssa Cardigan is stylish and sassy and a great choice for a plus size business casual ensemble. This hi-lo style cardigan features faux leather shoulder embellishment and front-open style. This is a great cover-up for a tank top paired with dress pants or fitted leggings with pumps; add a few pieces of elegant jewelry to complete the look.AlyssaCardigan1478

Depending upon how dressy or relaxed your place of business is, plus size work clothes that can be transitioned from causal to dressy are optimal choices. The Grace Cardigan is a short-sleeve option with a front tie. The cardigan is a great piece that will transition from the office to causal gatherings and weekend wear because it functions as a layering garment; it can be dressed up or down with pants or a skirt and accent jewelry.

This season faux-leather is definitely all the rage and the Xena Skirt yields sophisticated style. The high-waisted, knee-length skirt is classy enough for the office and edgy enough for networking mixers.

The Audrey Lace Tank Top is a fantastic addition to your plus size clothes collection. Tank tops can be paired with blazers and cardigans for a professional look providing limitless styling options all season long.

If you are looking for professional style but really crave comfort, consider the Wendy Wrap Skirt. The wrap skirt is a versatile piece to have on hand and it works well as a business casual look.

The deep neckline is a provides a great opportunity to adorn your look with a statement necklace and the elbow length sleeves will show off beautiful bracelets. The length of the tunic-style top really adds an extra splash of elegance making this a fabulous choice for in the office or afterwork shenanigans.

90s fashion has returned with the Perfect Palazzo Pants. The wide-leg pants are stretchy and comfortable allowing for excellent range of movement. They can be worn with an array of tops that range from casual to dressy as well as a host of footwear styles including boots, heels, and sandals.

For a flirty plus size business casual option that is fun and free, the Lulu Chiffon Skirt delivers. This classic pleated skirt with elastic waistband is too cute to boot but, the knee-length style is ready for business. This look can be finished with a blouse and cardigan for a crisp style.

The Ivana Chiffon Tank Top is a lightweight top with crossover design and beaded shoulder accents. With a contemporary hi-lo design, this top can be paired with fitted pants or leggings, and knee-boots or heels.

If you prefer a slightly edgier look, consider the Kendra Knit Sweater. The knit sweater is great for day to night looks and goes great with dress pants and flowing skirts.

The Cheyenne Jersey Top is an ideal option for a dressier look and a nice balance between playful and mature. Having an eye-catching geometric pattern, the top can be coordinated with solid bottoms and even a classic  black cardigan.

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Do you make new year’s resolutions? If you do, chances are good that one of them is to get in shape.

One of the biggest roadblocks for me getting myself to the gym or outside for a run is – well, okay, the biggest roadblock is the 19 inches of snow that fell last week. But the SECOND biggest obstacle is a shortage of cute workout clothes.

Romwe Style: December Edition

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

When I discovered Romwe, my first thought was, “So THIS is where Claudia Kishi got her clothes.”

Romwe is a Hong Kong-based online shop that celebrates street fashion in all its glory. Clothes tend to come in one-size-fits-all, so pretty much anyone over a size six need not apply (that includes me).

HOWEVER, everyone can enjoy Romwe’s jewelry, shoes, accessories and best of all – their charming e-newsletter, which I recommend you subscribe to post-haste. If the charm doesn’t sell you, the 20% off coupon they’ll send you will.

I threw together a few outfits from the stuff they’re offering right now. SO many cute things. You can click directly on the picture below to see the item. Whee!
