Finally! A work/career-wear edit for Plus-size/Curves! Salaam everyone I’m happy to bring you my take on fantastic, career-advancing modest fashion for your professional life. This edit has been designed based on the days of the week and we’ll be featuring one per day in this 5-part series.
Meeting Mondays, typically this is the time when companies get organized for the week. Your planning meeting will take place today and you’ll be meeting with your colleagues. Rarely will you see outsiders coming into the office for meetings, or key staff going out on Mondays. This is a day to look polished and professional but infuse your special personality into your outfit. Ad a little flare, an interesting design detail, don’t be boring and bland on a Monday.
This trouser is fun and funky, with a subtle nod to the military letting everyone know you’re not afraid of a battle with deadlines or the competition! Paired with this duster in mocha, you start the week of in earth tones and a powerful silhouette, think Vader.
To finish the look off choose from a looser fit button down shirt or an asymmetrical T-shirt.

Coordinate with a printed scarf with olive, browns and a pop of colour (turquoise, burgundy, fuscia, your options are endless with this neutral palette).
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s workwear picks!
