I've been working on the creative side of marketing and editorial as a freelancer for nearly ten years and plus size workwear is still sometimes a challenge for me! When I do get the opportunity to meet with clients, I can be at a loss for what to wear that's professional and still reflects my personal style. And this is where plus size clothing rental subscription service Gwynnie Bee comes in and saves the day!
When I was headed out to Baltimore to meet with one of my amazing clients based there, I made sure to pack my suitcase with this Geometric Printed Asymmetrical Dress from Jete. I added it to my closet on Gwynnie Bee after seeing Plus Model Magazine Editor Maddy Jones rocking it to the Addition Elle Fashion Show a few weeks back. When I wore the dress on my business trip, the colors popped and it made such a statement that all day people kept asking me where I got it! And you can try this dress out for yourself for FREE with a 30-day trial to Gwynnie Bee: sign up here!
Thanks to Gwynnie Bee's plethora of plus size workwear options, I've tried a few pieces already from the brand Jete and I knew that it tends to runs a bit big. I am a size 18/20 and I am wearing the 1X comfortably. This dress is available up a size 5X which is awesome!
Although the slit looked came up high on the model on the product page, I knew because of my height that it wouldn't be too scandalous for the office on me especially with the high-cut neckline.
I borrowed the shades and briefcase style bag from my mom to make this look complete! And you know I had to throw on my signature gold hoops for a personal touch.
