I feel exactly the same way you do. I work from home part-time and the other half I’m in the office. My office seems to be full of tall, thin woman who dress very professional (they deal with clients, I don’t) and I often feel self-conscious around them since I’m usually in a sweater set while they all wear the latest fashion trends and accessories to the fullest. I am a size 16 and as I gained weight I found myself finding something that just fit and then buying it in every color it came in. I used to think I looked fine for work but lately I’ve noticed that my clothes look a little worn but I have NO desire to go shopping. I used to love shopping and now I just find it overwhelming. I also get discouraged because most of what I try on doesn’t look so great on me so I end up buying a trusty cardigan and another pair of black dress pants….BORING!

My favorite thing to do is look through fashion bloggers’ posts to see what they’re wearing and get inspiration. Some of it is too out there for me, but Sidewalk Ready and Kendi Everyday have cute outfits that aren’t crazy. Go for classic pieces with some trendy things thrown in, and make sure that things fit properly. This is a good checklist, and then here’s a great visual one, too.

I was always told to dress the way you want to feel! Start off by figuring out what your body shape is! You can then figure out styles that work best for that body type. I am plus sized, and have been that way for most of my life, but it is just about finding things that you like that compliment your body and trust me the options are out there!! Good Luck!!

@vorpalette:  Love those blogs!

I study pinterest a lot for ideas about what to purchase or how to reimagine my existing wardrobe pieces.

@MissTatas:  Me too 🙂 

My other advice is to try everything on. I hate trying on clothes, but it’ll save you from regretting and returning later!
