Plus Size Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

Black Suit

The Suit

Your best plus size capsule wardrobe essential is a suit with all the pieces. You will see them advertised as a blazer, trousers, and a skirt. Sometimes they add a sheath dress or a jumper to the mix. At any rate, it is good to have a neutral colored set that all goes together. You can wear two or more of the pieces together, or you can break them up with other wardrobe items. A suit can be dressed up with high healed pumps and tasteful jewelry, or can be dressed down, wearing the blazer with jeans and a white t-shirt. It can be mixed and matched with just about anything in your plus size closet.

A Go-To Blouse

The Go-To

This could be a blouse or a dress or a scarf. This is a garment that you know you can pull out of your closet, put on, and know you look your best. The Go-To garment is something you could wear for any occasion and know that you look great. So, when you’re up against a situation where you’re not sure what to wear, like a party or an interview or meeting with a client or getting together with friends at a new restaurant, get your Go-To outfit on, and you will look great no matter the occasion. It is best to have two or three Go-Tos, just in case one is in the wash.

Your little black dress is the most versatile garment in your wardrobe. You will want a sleeveless one, so it can be worn as a cocktail dress, but you can also put on a completer piece and wear a scarf, for a business meeting. It can be dressed up with shiny accessories, or dressed down with a bulky sweater and booties. It can be a blank canvas for your favorite colorful scarf of vest, or it can remain black black black for when you feel like wearing just black! It can suit any occasion or mood. Oh and here’s a great thing! It doesn’t have to be black! Any dark neutral color can be an LBD.

Accessories are what add color and character to your whole plus size capsule wardrobe. They are inexpensive. By buying one character necklace, you can double your outfit choices. It’s great to have a couple of core accessories that you know can be worn with anything, but also pick a couple unique pieces that make a statement. This is where you individualize that suit on page 19 of the catalog, that every girl in the office has. This is where you show your personality.


The Trademark Piece

The trademark piece is a core piece that shows your character. This is a piece that can be worn with every outfit, every day. This can be a winter coat, an outerwear scarf, a piece of jewelry worn every day, a pair of brightly colored shoes, a large, colorful purse, or your glasses. This is your trademark.  Watch reruns of LaVerne and ShirIey.  LaVerne has a large cursive L on everything she wears.  That’s her trademark! Barbara Bush always wore those three strings of pearls.

Everyone has a color they like to wear. I tend to have a lot of purple in my closet, because it’s one of my favorite colors. I have several blouses, a couple scarves, and a completer piece in purple. I have purple socks. I have a lot of purple necklaces and bracelets. I have a winter scarf that I wear every day, that has purple in it. Find your favorite and buy several outfit items in your signature color. You will find that your color becomes a plus size wardrobe essential.

    I am no expert in ladies garment but I think this concept applies to gentlemen’s wardrobe as well especially the professionals. They need good selection of coats, suits, shoes, neckties, belts , cuff-links etc so they will always look professional at work and at work related social events. ( there are men who are plus size too you know ) . Many good ideas can be picked up from here for us men.
