I have other articles where you can understand how to follow dress code rules. But this article is totally different.

If your office has this dress code, you should wear something that is smart-looking but still casual. In casual I don’t mean flip-flops, of course.
So, if you want to create smart casual outfits you have to start by picking the classy, elegant-looking piece. Then you can pair it with something that will make your outfits look a bit casual.
Accessories can help you with that.
If you want to find a more detailed guide for creating smart casual outfits, I recommend you to check out my article about it. You are gonna get an idea of exactly what you need for it.
But if you want to go an easier way, let me share smart casual outfits that I created for you and for your specific body type.
Let’s start with the number one smart casual outfit for plus size women.
The first smart casual outfit that you can wear is this very cute high-waisted skirt and a beautiful little turtleneck white top outfit. You can click on the links to check out more details about products.
They are available in larger sizes. So, don’t worry about it. You can get it if you like it.
Why should you wear these pieces? And are they good for smart casual attire?
So, as I already said you need to have at least one classy piece to create a smart casual outfit. The one that makes your outfit look polished and professional.
Fortunately, I found what I wanted. This top is perfect for outfits. It’s white so it’s elegant. It has a turtleneck which also makes it look even more elegant.
But there are more good things in it. First of all, it’s a belt. The belt is the detail that works the best way for women’s bodies. It usually cinches in the waist. That’s great because a defined waist looks very beautiful on every woman.
Another amazing detail on the top is little peplums at the end of it.
Peplum tops have extra space on the stomach area. That’s very useful for you. Because if you have a tummy or you just don’t like that area you can hide it with peplums.
This way you are gonna look slimmer as well.
So, what we have till now?1
We have the outfit that’s a good fit for smart casual. The outfit that makes you look elegant and beautiful. And the outfit that makes you look slimmer as well.
I am not plus size but I wouldn’t ever refuse to wear it, lol.
The skirt is the piece that makes the smart outfit more casual. It’s a perfect length for plus-size women. Even if it’s shorter – not a problem at all.
This look needs accessorizing as all the other outfits. But don’t worry, I searched and I found accessories that go with the outfit perfectly.
Now, let’s move on to the next one.
Have you seen someone who wears a sweater over a shirt? I think you had. Because it’s a pretty trending outfit this year.
So, why should you miss the chance of wearing it?
I found all the pieces ready for you. Don’t forget this.
Shirt, sweater, pants, earrings
So, what’s going on here in this outfit?
In case you wear this basic shirt and wide-leg cropped pants together, you would have very cute elegant outfits.
But when you are creating a smart casual outfit, you need one casual piece as well.
This is what a sweater is for!
I don’t know what you think about shirts but I must tell you, it’s the perfect piece for your body type.
First of all, because it’s comfy. Then because it can hide some extra kilos in it. And the last thing – you can look so chic if you tuck it in your pants.
For the bottom I found black wide-leg cropped pants. It’s a classy piece as well. Wide leg pants are another very trending piece this year. Literally, everyone wears it.
Fortunately they are good for plus size women as well.
They are tight in the higher part, then they are becoming wide. That means you are wearing skinny pants that still have some volume on them.
Don’t forget accessories. I chose this earring because a necklace wouldn’t be a good idea to be paired with this sweater. So, it’s better to go for earrings.
You probably have noticed this, but if you haven’t I should tell.
I didn’t use shoes with outfits. Because I am sure everyone has at least one pair of heels in the wardrobe. And for smart casual dresses code – believe me, that’s a good choice.
Even if you don’t have heels you can wear classy platform shoes or wedges with these outfits. You are gonna look still awesome.
Just avoid flip-flops sneakers and other shoe types that will ruin the whole smart casual outfit.
You can create another smart casual outfit with basic pants and a blazer.
Shirt, blazer, earrings, necklace, pants
Guess which piece is the casual here? – definitely the top.
Even the accessories look so classy that it was hard to pair something casual with them. But fortunately, this is the top that will be perfect for it.
Pants and blazers are pieces that will make the outfit look more polished. So that’s another perfect smart casual outfit for plus size.
Blazer is another very trending piece and I should say I am in love with it.
You know why? When you are lazy (sometimes) to create outfits, or pair a cardigan, coat, or jacket with them, you can just throw a blazer over them and you are good to go.
It makes the outfit look more put together in a second. Well, you still need to pair the right color of a blazer with the outfit, of course.
But if you want the easiest decision, invest in a black or white blazer. They work with all possible outfits you can make.
You can create a perfect smart casual outfit with a black or white basic top, high-waisted pants (or skirt), and a blazer. That’s another outfit that looks elegant and classy but it still feels comfy for you.
I love this handbag and I contained it in many outfits today. It’s kinda like classy but with casual pieces, it can still look casual.
The basic white top is the casual piece in this outfit. It’s not either too tight or too baggy. But the thing is it’s gonna look amazing with more oversize pieces like this blazer and pants.
I imagine this look on a woman and I love it. I love the color combination of it as well. All neutrals are paired with these light blue wide-leg pants which are not very bright and colorful as well.
There is another outfit that you can create with a blazer. Actually I have many of them for today.
So, this is the outfit with a beautiful silk blouse and blazer.
Top, blazer, earrings, handbag
For pants, you can wear any pants that look well on you. But I recommend you choose the black one. Because another colored piece wouldn’t look good with this top.
My favorite piece in this outfit is the silk blouse. It looks so cute, elegant and flattering as well.
The neckline, sleeves, the print – I love everything on it. And most importantly these are details that will help you to make your body in good balance.
What I mean?
For example, let’s say about sleeves. You aren’t big on sleeves definitely. I know you are plus size but your sleeves would be the slimmest part of your body (maybe not, but still it’s possibly thinner than other parts).
So, it’s a good idea to add some volume to your sleeves. Because it will add something interesting to that part. And adding interesting details will get people’s attention to that part, which is the slimmest part of your body. That’s tricky right?
Now, let’s move on to the next one! But for this time – without blazer.
You can create this smart casual outfit with long tunic and classy skinny pants. Check out them on the image.
So, a long white tunic will be the casual piece, while black pants are classier. They are gonna create very fashionable outfits but here is the one thing I don’t like about the outfit.
Tunic has some pleats at the bottom and pants have a long belt, which needs to be tied. I don’t exactly know about your height but I think these little details may not go well together. Because pleats and belt would be in the same place on the body. And they probably gonna look weird.
So, if you like the top try to find simpler pants that don’t have anything on the waist area. Or in case you liked the pants, try to pair them with a top without pleats or peplums. Again, go for a simpler top here.
Do you love skirts? Because that’s the piece that you should use to create another smart casual outfit for plus size women.
This is the outfit with an off-shoulder top and slip midi skirt and plus accessories, of course.
Skirt, necklace, top, earrings
I hate people who say that plus size women should wear everything covered, oversized, or baggy. This is not right!!
In fact, those pieces will make you look worse than better. So, don’t believe them.
That’s why I contained an off-shoulder top for you. There isn’t anything special about it. It’s simple but it’s great for this specific outfit.
It’s gonna be a casual piece in this smart casual look. And it’s gonna be perfect with this gold woven skirt. They are gonna look awesome together. But with heels – even more awesome.
You can wear a blazer for more coverage if you wish so. But even without it, it’s the perfect smart casual outfit for plus size women.
Here is another cute and stylish smart casual outfit with a skirt.
Top, skirt, necklace, bracelet
But this one is a more casual skirt in gold color which has pleats. And for the blouse I found a classier top comparing to the previous one.
The blouse has a turtleneck and beautiful dotted sheer fabric on the sleeves. So, I thought it’s too simple. And so I needed some accessories.
I found exactly what I was looking for.
It’s a gold chain bold necklace which will pair with a black turtleneck. And another piece of jewelry that you can wear is this cute beaded bracelet. (Check out the image above)
I think you are gonna get a ton of compliments if you wear this outfit at the office.
The next outfit combination is my favorite one today. That’s why I decided to create a few different variations with them.
So, another smart casual outfit that you can create is a blazer and dress outfit. That’s a very beautiful outfit combination for plus size women.
For the first look, I found a black midi slip dress and a beautiful long blazer to be paired together.
Dress, blazer, watch, bracelet, earrings
I love the color combination of the look. Black and dark green will create very chic, elegant outfit for you.
How is the outfit smart casual? It’s smart casual because it contains both casual and classy pieces.
The dress itself is more casual. Because it’s comfy to wear but also looks elegant because it looks like a silk dress.
Blazer is definitely a classier piece in the outfit. For accessories, I tried to find jewelry that would be elegant but still casual. So, they pair with the outfit very well.
Another dress and blazer outfit that is appropriate for smart casual fashion attire contains the black dress and creamy blazer.
Remember! All of these pieces are for plus size. If it’s not very late while you are reading this, they would be available in the stores.
I loved the dress because of its unique shape and style. It has some ruches around the waist sleeves and at the bottom. Which definitely helps you to flatter your body.
For the classy piece, I chose this creamy long blazer which has some ruches on the sleeves as well. So, it kinda looks like 3/4 sleeves. And it’s perfect for spring.
The next outfit which is also smart casual is without blazer. There are few reasons behind this.
Dress, handbag, earrings, necklace
First, because blazer wouldn’t be a good fit for this dress because it has ruffles and it’s off the shoulder.
But it’s the dress that has both a classy and casual look.
So if you are a plus size woman and you are looking for a new dress, I think you have to check out this one.
For accessories, I chose an elegant necklaces and earrings. They will pair with the dress so perfectly.
But don’t forget to take a handbag with you. Since the print is busy enough, it’s better to go for more neutral colors. For example, the bag that I contained in the outfit will be an amazing choice.
And it’s time for the next blazer and dress outfit.
It’s a black blazer, white bag, and silver earrings. Always remember that once you have the one-piece with a busy print you should look for simpler pieces for the same outfit.
Dress, blazer. handbag, earrings
That’s a good balance for the look. In case you want to discover other tips to match clothes for women, check out my article about it. You are gonna find all about the good balancing of your looks.
Black and white are colors that are always safe to pair with something busy. Because they are neutral colors.
That’s why I decided to accessorize the outfit with accessories that you see on the picture.
And for the last outfit that plus size women can wear is high-waisted wide-leg pants and a top with some interesting details on it.
For this smart casual outfit, I decided to go more colorful. Yes, other outfits have some colors as well, but the thing is I love the combination of black and yellow colors.
Pants, top, necklace, earrings
That’s why I recommend creating another smart casual outfit with those pieces.
Why are they good for you? Because the style of them (top and pants) look flattering for your body type.
The top has beautiful sleeves, waistline and actually, I love everything on it. It creates a feminine silhouette of your body.
For accessories, I found a very simple but elegant necklace. And for earrings, I want you to use these Kate Spade earrings. They are colorful as well. So, your outfit gonna look brilliant.
That’s all for today!
I hope you found at least one smart casual outfit for your body type. But I think it’s hard to choose the one from many awesome outfits. So, good luck!
