We’ve all heard before how important it is to “dress for success.” And it’s true, dressing in attractive yet appropriate business attire is essential for women who want to get ahead in the business world. Plus size women are no exception; we need to look and feel great in the office too.
Business suits are the standard of professional attire, but you still have to think about how you combine your top with the suit. You should look great even if you decide to take off your jacket. Choosing silk or knit shells creates a nice look since the fabric is not clingy. Both short and long sleeves can work with this style.
Remember that you want to look your best, but still stay safely within your office’s dress code. Try out several different plus size tops and combine them with different accessories to find a professional look that’s right for you. Plus size clothing is available in lots of different styles, so you are sure to find business attire that makes you look and feel great.
Stephen, Your Designer
“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
