The Deal: Shop plus size work-appropriate dresses at Overstock.com
The Lowdown: Do the words “plus size” and “workwear” strike fear in your heart? Afraid that, as a curvy girl, you’re relegated to picking between the floral muu-muu and the matronly box-cut suit? We know that even in 2010 that’s still frequently the case — but we promise you, there are versatile options out there. At Overstock, for instance, we found a king’s ransom of dresses we not only liked as workwear but also as day-to-night options for this crazy holiday season. For day, wear them alone or with a jacket and classic work-appropriate pumps, and switch them up at night with statement jewelry, funky shoes and/or an embellished cardigan.
The best part? You can get them for under $110 each — which leaves you so much more wiggle room for purchasing some great accessories. Maybe plus size girls finally are starting to get the budget love they deserve from clothing makers — we can only hope. Our picks from Overstock.com.
