Shop for plus size fashion classics first. Every professional wardrobe should contain at least three pairs of black slacks, one pair of khaki pants, a black skirt, a wrap dress, two solid colored button-down shirts and two good, quality suits.
Colors can vary in some of your classic pieces, but keep the power colors in mind: black, white, red and tan or taupe. You can mix in some more colorful yellows or blues in moderation, but the core colors will make mixing and matching clothing from your existing wardrobe easier. A closet full of professional plus size fashion also makes it easier to incorporate new clothing trends into your wardrobe each season.
