Plus Size Fashion: Work And Play

Hello hello dearies! As I had promised on Instagram, I am going to show you how I style my mint-colored lace dress to be work-appropriate AND make it date-worthy with minimal changes.

This lacey dress is very feminine and flirty to begin with so I toned it down for work by wearing a black peplum blazer and black covered-up shoes.

I planned on wearing a floral-patterned hairband for the date. Since I dislike bringing a lot of 'loose' items in my bag (I tend to forget to use them), I decided to carry it on my person by twisting it around my bun at work.

To transform the look from 'conservative' to demure and girly, I traded my black blazer for a sheer nude coverup cinched at the waist with a brown belt. I also changed my black shoes to a pair of two-toned Oxfords.

For accessories, I tied my hair back and used the floral headband as it is. I also maintained my birdcage and rose necklace as well as my stud earrings that I wore to work.

I hope this gives you an idea on how to take an outfit from work to play. A switch of one or two article of clothing/accessories can change the look of an outfit. Don't be afraid to pair different things together and experiment. You'd be surprised at how you can maximize your wardrobe through experimentation.
