You don’t need to compromise on style when it comes to dressing for the office. With so many chic options at navabi, building up a 9-5 wardrobe is a breeze. Our plus size workwear ranges from exquisitely tailored blazers to form fitting pencil dresses, sophisticated blouses and the perfect black trousers. Basically everything you need to look smart and stylish Monday to Friday.
The versatile blazer
A well fitted blazer is a workwear staple that will instantly make you look polished and put together. There are two types of typical blazer, single breasted and double breasted. Single breasted styles have one to three buttons, but two is most common and usually notch lapels, while double breasted styles have from four to eight buttons, with six being the most popular and commonly peak lapels. We have a large selection of both single breasted and double breasted blazers at navabi ranging from classic designs to bold patterned numbers. If you’re looking for a smart investment a black or navy style will serve you well both in the office and off-duty. Whereas something like a printed jacquard blazer is a brilliant way to inject a little personality into your workwear repertoire, while still looking professional.
The white shirt
No wardrobe is complete without a crisp white shirt, especially when it comes to your workwear attire. The closet classic is unique in that it can be worn with virtually everything – trousers, suits, culottes, skirts, pinafore dresses, the list goes on. However, finding the right one can take some trial and error (a bit like shopping for jeans) but once you discover it you’ll never look back. At navabi we have a large array of plus size white shirts. From classic button down designs which are by far the most versatile to on-trend, deconstructed and knotted styles that will bring a fashion edge to your 9-style.
The pencil dress
A sleek, plus size pencil dress is the ultimate desk to dinner hero. The close-fitting shape is excellent at sculpting your silhouette and showcasing your curves. Typically styles come fashioned in ponte jersey (a double knit jersey fabric) which due to its thickness is super flattering as it helps to smooth your figure. Scuba fabric is another popular choice for pencil dresses with the subtly shiny finish lending the style a more glossy appeal. For something slightly dressier, look to lace, printed or jacquard styles. There are lots of different necklines to choose from too depending on your preference. You of course have the classic round neck and then V-neck, sweetheart and wrap necklines which are particularly flattering on larger busts. Contemporary styles often boast special details like ruching at the waist or optical illusion panels which add interest to the classic shape. Shoe wise, a pointed court perfectly complements the pencil shape and helps to lengthen your legs.
The tailored trousers
If trousers are more your thing, an expertly tailored pair should be in your workwear arsenal. It’s worth owning a couple of smart tapered styles as they can be worn with lightweight knits and shirts in winter, switching to chiffon blouses and camis in summer. A trouser shape that has recently entered the workwear domain is the wide leg trouser. These are great for making a statement especially in a bold print like stripes, while culottes on the other hand are a chic option if you fancy showing a little leg, or more importantly showing off a killer pair of shoes.
