3 Easy Steps for a Plus Size #GirlBoss Work Outfit

Let's hear it for all of the amazing plus size #GirlBosses out there! How do you look fabulous at the office, and still look professional? Here's 3 easy steps that I follow when dressing for the office...

3 Easy Steps to a Plus Size #GirlBoss Wardrobe by Amber from Style Plus Curves

First, pick dresses or tops strong colors that flatter your skin tone and show your shape, but can still be considered modest. Next, find a great bag in an unexpected color that is large enough to fit an extra pair of shoes for your commute, all of your daily essentials and your electronics. The 3rd essential part of a #GirlBoss outfit is of course...shoes! Choose shoes that make a statement--such as a unique animal print--but opt out of the sky-high strappy heels. Try to find shoes that you won't be limping in by the end of the day. I'm the first to admit that I don't always follow my own advice to "wear shoes that are comfortable to walk in," but I'm trying!

This Tahari by ASL Dress is an absolute dream! I got it on sale at Macy's but sadly, it's no longer available. But I did spot a few left on 6pm.com, so check here to see if they have your size!

It's such an amazing rich cobalt blue color, in a shape that is ridiculously flattering. The hem is just above the knee for me (I'm 5'9), and the 3/4 length sleeves are perfect for an all-season dress like this. Gold details at the neckline and the cap of the tie belt add some extra pizzazz that is perfectly set off by gold accessories.

The Perfect Plus Size Dress for Your Tropical Vacation

Tropical vacations call for fabulous floral prints in bright colors, and this plus size Kiyonna Tropical Palm Print Coastal Cold-Shoulder Dress is the PERFECT piece to bring on vacation. Not only is the print on point, but the long loose cut with the plunge neckline keep it casual, but with some va-va-voom. I was recently in Hawaii, and had a blast walking down Waikiki beach and shopping in Honolulu in this fabulous dress. And did I mention it packs like a dream?

Summer Style Essential: Plus Size Wrap Dress in Coral from Kiyonna

Color is the color of the season, and wow, this Coral Honeycomb Wrap Dress from Kiyonna is rocking it! I had 4 people stop me on the way to work to gush and ask where they could get it. It's no wonder that it's nearly sold out. If you're feelin' this look, and you're a plus size gal wearing a 2X, head over to Kiyonna right now and buy it. The color is amazing, the fabric lays perfectly, and the sheer honeycomb knit detail at the shoulders and sleeves give this dress even more edge. And did I mention that it's a wrap dress? So it lays perfectly over curves!

A strong color like this can carry another strong color, so I paired it with turquoise accessories for even more punch. I kept the shoes simple with nude pumps, and that was it.

Plus Size Summer Essentials: The Floral Dress from Kohl's

Summer is nearly here, and if you don't have a floral dress in your wardrobe, get on it stat! Florals are a major trend this season -- coming in every shade and combination -- so pick the one that shows off your flair the best! When Kohl's asked me what my summer essentials were for the plus size market, I knew that floral dresses were number one on my list. Proper, minimalist or bohemian, short or maxi, floral dresses are abundant. This adorable black, white and gray sleeveless dress is Apt. 9 from Kohl's, and it has already become a go-to item in my closet!

I love the kind of abstract, but kind of photographic floral print. And the fabric is a fabulous stretch polyester knit which holds its shape and looks amazing though multiple wears.

I could have gone bold with my accessories, but was feeling more demure -- so I paired it with blush pink pearls and wedges. Very ladylike, right??
 And there's a cutout detail on the back! The scoop neck is modest and appropriate for work, and the cutout detail on the back adds flair, without being too revealing.


Comfortable, stylish, and on-trend are all the hallmarks of a summer essential. Check out the other summer essentials that my fellow bloggers picked out on the Plus Size Section of the Kohl's website. SO CUTE!!!
