Hello Ladies. Lets get those curves covered!!!! Here is 5 Plus size office tips…
First impressions always count, and that is never truer than when you are in a work environment. The way you look reflects the way you feel and approach life. So looking professional, smart and sleek means you’ll come across as just that. These tips will help you make the most of your curves and impress your colleagues. Being as bold as your colours will energise and style your office wear.
1 – Dress to flatter your figure
The most important thing to get right is to understand your shape and dress to flatter it. One quick way to do this is to check out our Shape Calculator, into which you can enter your measurements and receive tips on how to dress for your figure.
2 – Don’t be afraid of colour
Most office workers feel restricted to the confines of black, navy and grey; but there are so many more options available to you. For summer, berry shades offer a welcome burst of colour and can be energising. If you don’t want to go for a block of colour – like a dress for example – choose a colourful jacket to lift a plain dress, or try a scarf delicately tied around your neck.
3 – Boot-cut is best
Boot-cut trousers flatter fuller figures as trousers that are tighter at the ankle can have a disproportionate effect on your mid section, making it appear larger than it is. Trousers that flare out have a balancing effect, and create a nice silhouette. Ensure you get a good fit on the thighs, so the trousers are not too baggy which can add pounds, or too tight which can be unflattering. Basing your office outfit on the basics will ensure a flexible, flattering style
4 – Statement accessories add impact
Statement jewellery can really add the wow factor in your work wardrobe. A beautiful statement necklace adds interest around your neckline, drawing the eye upwards. Beaten metal cuffs are also a great option for adding the finishing touches to your outfit, but beware of charm style bracelets which can jingle and become annoying to your fellow workers!
5 – Don’t forget the essentials
Base your work wardrobe on the basic essentials; a good white shirt, a power suit that can be styled in a multitude of ways, a versatile handbag and some closed toe pumps – preferably heels to make you look and feel in charge.
