Plus Size Officewear for Summer

Working in summer can feel like a bit of a drag if you’re stuck in a hot clingy outfit while you daydream of sitting poolside with a cool drink or swimming in the ocean. January is a great time to change up your work attire so that you feel cool, calm and collected as you kick off the year (and still look super stylish for an after work drink).

Dresses:

A dress is perfect during summer because you can easily pair it with a blazer to look more formal. Go for a monochrome or floral pattern to stay on trend through spring, summer and autumn.

Linen helps to keep you cool with woven fabric that allows better airflow, by absorbing moisture and allowing it to evaporate quickly (perfect for hot sweaty days!) and also reflecting heat – perfect for summer weather! EziBuy has some beautiful linen dresses that would be a great addition to your office wardrobe.

Separates:

Sara Peplum Top | Sara Broderie Sweater

Peplums are still very much in fashion thanks to their extremely flattering cut on most body shapes. Pair them with a blazer and you are good to go! You could also opt for a luxe knit or silk top to keep you cool while still being super stylish.

Match printed pants with that luxe top, or a pencil skirt with your print top. Peplum looks especially good with a pencil skirt, enhancing the hourglass appearance of your figure, and leaving you looking balanced from head to toe.

Jackets:

Sara Blazer | Sara Soft Drape Jacket

The perfect finishing touch for your office attire is a jacket or blazer. Whether you go for a well fitted blazer or a softer jacket, it’s super easy to just sling it on and pop out to a meeting.
