Plus size business casual outfits for my “plus size on a budget series!”
Look cute at the office while saving some dough!
All of these plus size office-appropriate looks are perfect for transitioning to spring!
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.
But this time, I topped the navy pants with a lightweight cotton sweater in a dark mustard color.
Then I tied it all together with a silk scarf.
This small square scarf can be worn around the neck, the wrist, a ponytail, or even the tote bag handle.
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.”
