Plus size business casual outfits for my “plus size on a budget series!”
Oh, make sure you check out Part 2!
Like I’ve said, looking cute at the office doesn’t have to break the bank!
I want to prevent some anticipated feedback. So please keep these things in mind:
- “Budget” is relative. Some people easily spend $300 on sunglasses, while other people allocate $300 for their annual clothing budget.
- You may be able to find these items elsewhere for less. These are just some “budget-friendly” finds I have come across. And I typically don’t link to clearance items because they sell out and then people are disappointed. Also, I have no way of linking to thrift stores, but obviously, if you want to check out your local thrift stores, I think that is a great idea!
- Recycle & reuse. As with all of my posts, I hope that you can use the pieces you already have in your wardrobe. Additionally, I assume that you can reuse all of the pieces below in other combinations with things in your closet to create a variety of looks. Meaning, I think it is unfair to judge the expense of one outfit as though that is the only way to wear the pieces.
Plus Size Navy Blazer
And see another plus size double-breasted navy blazer outfit here.
This outfit also features the same accessories and mules from that “casual Friday” look.
Actually, I have so many pieces now, I have lost track! But, so far so good!
These are inexpensive plated pieces so you might need to “baby” them for longevity.
Avoid the obvious: showers, pools, spraying your wrist with perfume while wearing them.
Store them in air-tight plastic bags, if possible. This will keep the plating from damage and tarnishing.
FYI, you can check out some more of my picks in my Amazon store.
Perfume & Lipstick
I have had this perfume brand, Dossier, on my “to try” list for quite some time.
I actually just ordered a bunch of their scents. I’ll report back soon!
Oh la la! An amazing luxury scent at a fraction of the price!
For lips, I opted for a deep red with “Rouge St. Germain.” This shade will work best on all cool or neutral skin tones including deep shade.
If you have a warm undertone, go with “Volcanic.”
Another option for cool tones with a blue base, but a lighter red is “Maison Marais.”

Below you can see the same look without the navy blazer. A great choice for warmer months!
Editing Alexa here! As I am working on this post I realize that the trousers* in the images show the backside.
To be clear, the front of the navy pants* don’t have flat horizontal pockets.
I am just too tired to go update all of the images. My apologies!
This next look is exactly the same except I swapped the yellow top for a beautiful printed ruffle top.
I then added a coin necklace to accentuate the neckline.
The lipstick in the aforementioned “Maison Marais,” a lovely cool-tone red.
