Have you ever had to wear a uniform, day in, day out? Perhaps you’ve had a job where you had to wear the same outfit each day. How did it make you feel?
Considering that most clothing for plus size women is poorly designed, it probably wasn’t all that great of an experience. And some uniforms – when overly strict – can hamper your ability to be creative and stylish.
So let’s take a different approach to the uniform. Instead, let’s talk about your personal uniform. Your favorite go-to style of casual plus size clothing. That blouse or button-up top that you could wear everyday and always feel great in.
Each personal uniform is different. You may feel best in a colorful tank top and pants. A friend of yours may love her tie die tunic top with leggings. It’s about finding an outfit that fits you perfectly.
What are some of the advantages of finding and using your favorite go-to plus size clothing?
When you wear an item that you love and that looks great, it’s a huge confidence boost. You may second guess your style choices with a new outfit. It takes time to feel confident and stylish in a new look. But when you wear something tried and true, you always know you look your very best.
The pieces that make it into your go-to plus size clothing collection are certainly comfortable. In fact, these are the pieces that combine comfort, fit, and style perfectly. No excessive fabric, no restricting sleeves.
Your favorite casual plus size clothing is easy for you to mix and match. When you buy something new, it can take you a while to figure out how to work it into your wardrobe. But your style staples – like a plus size tunic top or a plus size button up – are easy for you to combine with other looks. That versatility lets you create several enviable ensembles with just one central piece.
What’s Your Personal Uniform?
What style defines you or serves as your personal uniform? Is it a particular style? Or a specific color?
Regardless, embrace it. Enjoy the confidence, comfort, and versatility that come with having your own personal style. Mix and match your old favorites with new pieces you pick up. With time, you’ll build an amazing plus size clothing wardrobe full of casual, stylish, and elegant combinations.
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
