What to wear “back to the office”, is on our minds. Some of us are excited to get back to the office. Others may be feeling anxious to see co-workers in person again. Or maybe just down-right annoyed to return to commuting. One thing is for certain, the old office dress code rules are out the window. Business casual is being redefined. Now retailers, workers and employers are trying to figure out what will work in a world where a traditional dress code might never come back.
After over a year of loungewear, wardrobes need a refresh. Brands are working to improve the comfort and functionality of their clothes. Many new arrivals this Spring and Summer have added comfy features. For example the WSJ found many brands are scaling back their production of suits, adding more stretch to their work pants and using new phrases such as “workleisure” and “hybrid dressing."
Business Clothing for Post-Pandemic Dressing
Business leaders recognize that expectations and needs have changed and, to everyone’s relief, dress codes are being relaxed. Instead of the button-down shirts and slacks that were the norm before the pandemic, office workers can now wear joggers, leggings and sweatshirts. Brands like See ROSE Go are now preparing for post-pandemic dressing. People are ready to get dressed again, just with more seamless dressing to meet their needs.
At See ROSE Go, a seamless sense of dressing has always been at the heart of what we design. Our designs must answer for functionality and beauty. Functionality meaning comfort, ease and care. Beauty meaning - darn good design! But really timeless, chic and modern. We know chic and well fitting plus size work clothes are difficult to find. These pieces were created to move from desk to drinks, workweek to weekend. Here are our back to the office outfits for See ROSE Go plus size workwear inspiration.
Step one in wardrobe essentials is a well made quality T-shirt. Tees are trending as popular layering pieces to wear under soft suiting replacing button down shirts. Our best seller Coolest T-Shirt has been quality tested by apparel testing lab QIMA, passing durability testing on all levels. Crafted in our cotton based CoolROSE™ Tech, the tee provides cooling, wicking and ANTI-pilling tech performance. This ultimate tee can be worn as a v neck or crew neck, simply reverse front to back necklines. Crafted in our CoolROSE™ Tech, the tee provides cooling, wicking, and ANTI-pilling tech performance. In warmer weather wear this t-shirt on its own with wide leg trousers or pencil skirt. During cooler weather we love the look of a tee under a jumpsuit. You can't beat the denim, tee and blazer look.

The new work pant is our Tailored Track Pant. Out customers say it best, "Game changer! I love these pants, they feel so elegant and tailored could be dressed up, but also a every day step up from sweatpants or leggings." These are so good we dare you to just own 1 pair. Style with the Coolest T-Shirt and Birkenstocks. These pants can take anything new office dress codes through at them.
Polished comfort is embodied in the Everyday Legging. Made with vegan leather and ponte, these leggings have a flat front high-rise waist band with an elastic back that contributes to their insane comfort. Style with our Signature Tunic, another timeless piece.
The Signature Tunic Shirt is our cult favorite. This is the multi-purpose MVP (Most Valued Piece) of your wardrobe. The slightly dropped shoulder offers a relaxed fit making tunic an effortless button down shirt or a dress (bonus, wear as a duster). No ruffles are, our love for minimalism can be found in the delicate piping at the collar, cuff and center front placket. Clean lines continue with on seam pockets and French seaming.
This summer especially is the summer of dresses. Plus size dresses have never looked better, midi dresses, maxi or shirt dresses the ease and comfort can not be denied and choices abound. With more relaxed dress code at work you may find yourself adding more dresses to your rotation. A must have that will not disappoint is our Go-To LBD. This dress was designed after hearing a woman tell us about her experience getting ready for a wedding, her husband waiting, and her woefully distraught, dress after dress on the closet floor. We decided then and there, See ROSE Go would offer a LBD that could really do-it-all. From weddings to back yard BBQs to back to the office. This short sleeve style is a glorified t-shirt dress by design for comfort. Its the dependable "go-to" that is always there for you. Wear with heels when you want to feel sexy, sneakers when you are out running errands, sandals in the summer, and booties in the winter. Our LBD is made with CoolROSE™ Tech which is our patent-pending fabric proven to provide cooling, wicking, anti-pilling powers.
