Plus Size Summer Work Capsule Wardrobe

I received numerous requests for this post: a plus size summer work capsule.  This collection of business casual outfits will take you from summer into the fall.  Ten pieces, two pairs of shoes, and accessories give you more than twenty outfit options.  Keep in mind you can always add and trade accessories for even more looks!

Plus Size Summer Work Capsule Wardrobe Collection with Navy, Aqua, and Hot Pink - Alexa Webb #plussize #alexawebb

Color Story

You may have noticed that I kept things neutral except for some teal, aqua, and hot pink.  All of which go well with the neutrals: navy, tan, and white.

I steered clear of black as that can be tricky with navy.  Although I love black and dark blues together, if the navy is too dark and similar to black it doesn’t work.  It ends up looking like a hit and a miss.  But, I think grey could be a nice addition to this collection.

Accessories

I kept the accessories the simple but figure you can customize the looks with what you have on hand.  Grab your favorite tan work tote or check out this one.  A genuine leather tote is a great investment for work.  It will last forever.  Be sure to get one large enough that you can toss in everything you need.  Think cosmetic bag, laptop, folding flats, or a lunch bag.

I also included a leopard belt, which I think adds a lot to many of the outfits.  If you don’t have one, I linked to several below.

Shoes

Although this is a capsule wardrobe for summer, you might notice the absence of sandals.  Sandals aren’t exactly professional and are not technically a part of a business casual dress code.  But, you might be able to get away with them at more lax offices.

So I chose some cute flats instead.  And the best news is you can wear them year-round!

  2. Love it! Thank you, I’ve followed you for quite some time( I went from wearing srubs for 20 yrs to business casual).

    1. I bought all the tops and pants except 2 because I had similar pieces in my closet. I feel so put together now for when work travel starts back up! Thank you!!

  4. This is one of my favorite capsules so far! I was wondering how easily you could swap in coral for the hot pink. Hot pink doesn’t do my complexion any favors. Thank you so much!

  8. Such pretty colors for spring and summer! Plus, you chose many pieces that would easily transition into autumn. For example, I’d wear the printed pants with a cozy burgundy cowl-neck sweater, and the tan cropped pants with mid-calf snake print or leopard print boots and a fitted cream long-sleeve cashmere top. Well done!

  9. I can’t Thank you enough for this capsule. Decided to give my self an early bday present and actually bought almost every peice. I love feeling like I almost know what I am doing thanks to you. 😉
