We thought we would kick off with something pretty classic. A shorter line jacket is perfect for wearing with pencil or shorter skirts as it helps to balance out and outfits proportions, while longer line blazers often work better with trousers. This basic black plus size jacket is great if you need to formalise any of the pencil skirts from our first workwear post!
Blazer in crepe with slim lapel – ASOS Curve £42 with matching trouser available £28
This trouser suit screams spring. In this grey blue hue (stunning) teamed perfectly with a simple white cami, this crepe plus size blazer is light to wear and will work well with a skirt too. Use it to add a pop of colour to a grey outfit, or be daring and wear over white – a great wedding guest look this summer too with a statement necklace and some heels. Super versatile and a great price.
Now this is definitely at the pricey end of the spectrum, but, if you have ever touched a Marina Rinaldi piece then you know the kind of quality we are talking about. As part of the house of Max Mara – famed for their formal outerwear, suiting etc Marina Rinaldi is a great stop on your plus size workwear list if you have the budget to splurge. This formal blazer has a matching fashion forward trouser but would also work over a plain grey or black trouser too.
How chic is this jacket – we absolutely love the androgynous vibes, the sleeveless style (rock with a long sleeve tee, polo neck sweater or a shirt underneath) and the tie side front is just that extra stylish detail that we love from designer brands. This jacket is super sharp and perfect for rocking with a great pair of tailored trousers. Snap this one up as it is in the sale but the classic plaid but unusual detail make this a season staple.
Because, let’s face it, tailored jackets aren’t for everyone and that’s Ok!
We found this lovely black, waterfall style on value retailer, Yours Clothing. Part jacket, park cardigan, because of its relaxed vibe, it isn’t has pockets (we know you love a pocket). This eas style is great for when you need to look smart but want to feel a little more relaxed.
