The Updated LBD (Little Black Dress)
If you are a fan of black and white and a great wrap dress, this is a great option. You can pair your LBD with the Pantone Color, Viva Magenta, a bold print, or metallic in your shoes for spring.
The fun thing about an LBD is the ability to accessorize endlessly… Here, you can add or switch belts and throw on some cute heels for a chic desk to dinner option!
The Relaxed Cardigan:
Not sure what to wear with those *really cute* ankle pants? Try a longline cardigan to elongate those legs and protect you from those shivering office conditions OR switch it up and brighten your look with a floor length cardigan- perfect for spring and for early fall.
In this case, you can also created a more relaxed suiting option, by pairing your cardigan with a matching skirt!
Sometimes, a great skirt suit can do all the work in your closet. In the same vein that a pantsuit can be worn three ways, so can your skirt! Especially if your skirt is versatile enough to be paired with other items in your closet.
With that in mind, we will always appreciate a great midi length skirt. A midi skirt can be professional for work and sensual for play, with an intentional change of accessories and your top.
The Updated Pant:
High waist, cropped, and wide leg pants will definitely be a few silhouettes that you will find in pants this year! Pep up even the most boring work suit ultimate with a high waist pant in a fun hue.
Or take it tapered and sleek with these on playful plaids or bold hues. Who says that you off-duty clothes get to have all the fun?
Now, not everyone is a fan of prints. Prints can be extremely personal!
BUT if done correctly, prints can be a timeless way to add a bit of flavor and personality to your wardrobe. If your job allows a business casual atmosphere, spice up your outfit by adding bold prints to your office look.
The options are limitless and it’s a great way to add your personal style to your business style.
The Chic Suit:
Suiting can immediately be seen as so boring, but thanks to the various plus size brands and designers, we have a few fun ways to add color, style, and even throw in a bit of luxury into our plus size workwear collection…
If you decide to invest in a great suit and if your funds are limited, make sure to get a neutral hue and shop from a brand that brings in seasonal silhouettes, but keeps the color or fabrication similar. Think Henning, Pari Passu, and even Eloquii.
This way, you can add one item at a time, knowing that your suit will always match. This will allow your closet to constantly stay refreshed without having to reinvent the options each season.

Comfort your feet with fashionable flats and put aside those pesky heels. it seems as through the pandemic and the rise in plus size loungewear, so came the casualness of flats! We want comfort and style, and luckily, we have a few options to play with in, in wide width.
