I wanted to put together some simple plus size work outfit ideas using only black and white (it does not get more simple than that!).
I love monochromatic outfits because they’re easy to put together and look polished. You can always add some drama with a pop of bright color, like a bright red shoe or an electric blue statement necklace.
For office looks I tend to choose wide leg, flare or boot cut trousers over skinny or tapered leg. To me it just looks more professional.
My favorite work slacks are the Millennial Pant – Slim Boot Trouser from Torrid. I love everything about these pants! They have the perfect weight for all season wear, the perfect amount of stretch for fit and comfort, and the perfect cut for a professional look.
They come in 3 lengths. I’m 5′ 4″ and I wear the short with flats and the regular with a heel. Keep in mind they will shrink a bit. I dry mine on the lightest heat setting and if I hang or fold them while warm, I don’t need to iron (Yes!). Otherwise, use only a cool iron (read the tag for more).
Side note: I tried Torrid’s All-Nighter Pant – Slim Boot Trouser and wasn’t nearly as happy. They are a heavier fabric, ponte knit, which is nice in winter months, but I have to wear a belt with them as the waist band seems to stretch out over the course of a day. Additionally, they can be a bit clingy and their leg opening is not as wide as the Millennial Pant.
