Need a little inspiration? We are kicking off Plus Size Bridal Week with a spotlight on YOU, the plus size brides who took our breath away and stunned on their big day!
Everyone’s work wardrobe looks different depending on your style and the industry you are in. As we know it, workwear has evolved to cover thousands of different professions; working from the office or working from home. However, no matter what you do for a living or where you are “doing it from,” one central theme has always been consistent…professionalism!! But in looking professional, you CAN still be fierce and stylish!
We can all use something different and fashionable in our work wardrobe for 2022. Pieces that can help us go from day to night or from the living room to a board meeting! So, let’s get ready to upgrade your work wardrobe!

Wide Leg Pinafore Jumpsuits
Can you say obsessed? The classic Pinafore Wide Leg Jumpsuit is a piece that should be in every curvy boss’s closet. It is a professional yet super comfy look that can be dressed up or down!

Jazz Up your Traditional Suit
The work world will always welcome the classic black or gray suit; however, vibrant suits are a necessity in today’s world! So, my dear, this year, go ahead, shine and feel free to experiment with color, prints, textures… change it up a bit! Your wardrobe should consist of a basic suit, skirt, or pants on deck for those meet and greet, seal the deal type of days. Or for those behind the video call days where you want to look powerful from the waist up. It’s time to feel powerful and bold in 2022!
New at Ashley Stewart are a few gorgeous suit ideas that you don’t want to miss! Here’s a few!
Dresses are always better in Faux Leather
For your upgraded wardrobe, including dresses that are fun to wear and even a little sexy while pushing the pen and paper are a must!
Faux Leather Dresses are always a good choice anytime! Add a long duster or blazer. Break out that cute belt to accentuate your curves. Wear a pair of textured or printed tights with fabulous heels or ankle boots. You can be professional and still have fun when it comes to your style and dress!
Try Eloquii for a few options in the “faux leather” category. And don’t forget to have fun!
The “A” in A-Line = Attractive
The timeless A-line silhouette will always be a classic! What is a workwear wardrobe without a few A-line skirts or dresses? Worn with flats, heels, or even boots, this silhouette works for everyone! The A-line dress or skirt is a must-have for the curvy boss. The A-line dress or skirt is a must-have from a professional look with a blazer, trendy with a great belt, or romantic with a soft cardigan.
Now Loading…Oversized Blazers
Who doesn’t love a good get up and go blazer? It’s a perfect piece that can change a look in a matter of seconds! Such a simple yet sophisticated look.
