Plus Size Business Casual Outfits… with Masks!

Plus Size Business Casual Outfits… with Masks!

This is kind of an odd roundup of outfits, but it’s 2020 and anything goes.

With this leadership program I’m in, we’re traveling around the state in a group of about 40 people. Attire so far has been requested as business casual, and masks are required (thank goodness!)

The challenge with dressing for these trips is that not only does it need to be business casual, but it also needs to be comfortable enough to walk to different locations or tour outside in the summer heat with flats, and keep a mask on. You all know I’m pro-dress at this point, so it’s no surprise that I’ve not chosen pants for any of these events!

Let me be clear: I have no interest if your mask matches what you’re wearing – I just want you to wear one! I’m using masks as an accessory and it’s been fun to print mix and find more fabrics to create them. This is part of my current collection:

Leota New York has long been a brand that I turn to when I want to look chic and timeless, but also remain comfortable. The matte jersey material they use doesn’t wrinkle, is a great medium weight that drapes well and has a nice amount of stretch without stretching out. They have sizes from XXS-5X. I prefer their 4X but also have worn some 3X as not all styles come in 4X or 5X. They do really well in the wash, which is great because I don’t bother with dry cleaning.

Most of my Leota dresses are through my Gwynnie Bee subscription, and then I end up purchasing them to keep 😂

Deal alert: Right now, there are a lot of Leota dresses at amazing prices at Nordstrom Rack.

I’ve actually had this dress in another print last year. Love it just as much!

I need to do a more comprehensive profile on Leota given how many of their dresses I’ve tried or own. I’ll put that on the list!
