Keepin’ it Casual (Part 2)

By Silhouettes · August 4, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

Wearing business casual clothes to work is great, and a common dress code in a lot of office settings.

So the rule for shirts (for women) is nothing too revealing and nothing TOO casual. Tank tops, etc. are out. Shirts with collars are good, but you don’t have to stick to collars, since there are lots of dressy shirts that don’t have them. (Your mileage may vary, of course. Check with HR to be sure.)

Here are a few great plus size shirts that fit under the umbrella of “business casual.”


The embroidered mandarin collar blouse. This pretty, feminine shirt is great for work, and it’s a little bit different, too. Loose fitting, comfortable, and still business casual—and the embroidery is a nice touch.


The embellished Gillian Grey linen tunic works well over a pair of business casual pants. It’s washable, too, which is always great for work clothes, and the embellishments make things pop.


The pullover buccaneer top comes in some really fun colors: raspberry is my favorite, but the blueberry and lime are so much fun, too. Easy-fitting, cotton voile, and washable, this shirt will (almost) make it fun to go to work in the morning!

Make sure to investigate some of the other plus size shirt and blouse options to brighten up your work wardrobe.
