Getting dressed for work shouldn’t be a bore. Welcome to Business Casual — here to make your weekdays easier.
An outfit that makes you feel confident can be a game changer, especially in the workplace — but if you’re above a size 12, powerful pieces aren’t always available. For years, plus-size professionals have been forced to make do with gaudy, cheaply made separates, sad sack dresses, and matronly suits — but not anymore.
Fortunately, these 24 plus-size workwear looks below are destined to impress in the boardroom and beyond. Add a few to your current closet, or create an entire work week’s wardrobe by mixing and matching your favorites.
