I am always looking for outfits and plus size work dresses that I can wear to the office since that was where I used to spend most of my time before COVID-19 turned my office job into a telecommute position. And I am sure that I will return to the office eventually, but I am not totally sure what the workplace will look like when all of this is past us. If you are looking for plus size office and work dresses, I will include a shoppable widget with my favorites at the bottom of this post!
And while I am not currently going into the office every day, I still look for and plan out business casual looks so that I can hit the office in style when I go back. This City Chic Knotted Long Sleeve Button Up Dress from the plus size boutique CoEdition recently caught my eye, but I am wondering if it’s work appropriate. From the waist up, it says business, but I worry that the front slit may be a little too high. Aside from pondering its practicality, the dress feels amazing on and looks even better. I love the way it hugs my curves! And while I have a lot of plus size black dresses for work in my closet, I don’t have one like this. My favorite feature of the dress has to be the knotted center. It’s such a unique detail on a business casual dress, and it really emphasizes my curves. Whether it’s truly practical or not, I think I will risk it. Working from home has made me appreciate being able to get dressed every day, and when I head back into the office environment, I won’t take those days for granted!
Have you ever heard of CoEdition? It’s a marketplace exclusively for plus size women! The shop makes it so easy to find my size and some of the styles and designers that I know I already love, but it also introduces me to new brands. The next time you need major outfit inspiration or you want to search for a particular item of clothing across multiple plus size brands, check out CoEdition!
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size M, which is a size 18-20 at City Chic. This is my usual size, and the dress fits perfectly. There is a bit of stretch in the dress for added comfort.
