Business Casual

July 15, 2018


Every woman needs that go-to look that can be worn across a myriad of occasions. For me, that look always starts with a plus size blazer. Blazers are traditionally seen as work attire, however they are so much more than that. Because there are various styles of blazers, it allows them to be worn in many different ways. This makes them an ultra-versatile piece. Blazers can be paired with everything from dresses and skirts to jeans and yes even shorts. They are perfect for those “in-between” moments where you don’t want to be too dressed up nor too dressed down. As classic as an LBD is, blazers are just as timeless and will never go out of style.

The Perfect Plus Size Blazer

There are a couple of things that I look for when shopping for blazers to ensure that I get the most wear possible. The first is the design and material. I tend to lean more towards blazers that don’t have a lot of structure and that a good amount of stretch. It not only aides in comfort but it also allows you to dress it up or down which widens your style options. The second is the length. I love long-line blazers that hit just at the hip. They create the perfect proportions for wearing with shorts, dresses and skirts.

So of course with it being the Summertime, I had to rock my blazer with a pair of denim shorts. You may not have thought that you couldn’t rock a blazer with shorts but I’m here to tell you that you absolutely can! It’s the best of both worlds and perfect for this time of year. The bright yellow color is on-trend for the season and I just added some leopard pumps for a fun print. A little bit a business, a little bit of casual, a whole lot of style!

    Hi Kristine, could you give some suggestions on cropped denim jackets; wedding guest dresses with sleeves; camo outfits & jumpsuits ( which are soo hard to find the right fit if you’re curvy)… Thanks, Laura.

      Hi Laura. I can’t think of any places that I’ve seen these items off the top of my head so I would just suggest you Google and look around. I know Macy’s typically has a great selection of special occasion dresses so I would definitely look there. Haven’t seen too much Camo but you can try Fashion Nova or similar sites like that

    I love this look. When I clicked on the link for the blazer I was shocked, it looks totally different on you in a positive way. I was not sure it was the same blazer. You definitely took this blazer to a higher level.
