WORKWEAR WEDNESDAY: TIE NECK BLOUSES AND PENCIL SKIRTS
Hey curvy girls all over the world,
The question, I get asked the most by SC readers is how to dress for work. So many plus size women feel they can’t be creative or dress stylish and modern when it comes to office attire. As a young corporate professional myself, I know all too well how frustrating it can be to find work clothes when it seems like every plus size brand only offers trendy club wear. To help you look your absolute best at the office, I have decided to start a new feature called “Workwear Wednesday.”
Every Wednesday we will put together super stylish work outfits that can take you from desk to dinner and in Stylish Curves fashion, all the pieces we use are in plus sizes 14 and up.
Today, we are kicking the feature off with an easy classic combo. The tie neck aka pussy bow blouse and pencil skirt. I always say don’t underestimate the power of separates in classic styles. The tie neck blouse is very sophisticated and when paired with a pencil skirt, it adds a hint of sexiness without being inappropriate.
This is why they call it the sexy secretary look.
Our first look incorporates two trends. The colorblocked and oxblood trend.
We paired a black and white colorblocked top with a oxblood pencil skirt. To amp up the professionalism we added a classic trench coat and ankle strap pointed toe pumps.

If you work in a more fashion forward office, I would go for a printed skirt and a tie neck blouse in a corresponding color.
