A good suit is a must-have in every woman’s closet, it’s such a versatile piece!
Whether you work in business and need to wear a suit every day or applying for a job, you need a piece like this. You could also wear it to a networking event or even to a funeral if you lack a suitable black dress. It’s a classic formal piece that is fundamental to a well-constructed wardrobe.

Nowadays we see more and more celebrities wearing a suit for red carpet events. The suit is definitely making a comeback as a very fashionable outfit suitable for any occasion.

Finding a good fitted suit for plus size women is quite the challenge unless you are able to get them tailored. Personally, I don’t need to wear one to work, so getting them specially made seems a bit over the top. I would suggest buying one when you stumble onto the perfect suit for you.

I saw this gorgeous suit at MS mode and thought: “why not?” I don’t have one yet and this black one looks amazing. When I tried it on with this silver textured top, I was sold. The fit was perfect and the suit is really comfortable. The blazer is my favorite piece!  It has just the right fit and I love that it only has one button. The pants have a little stretch, which is great, and the silver top really pops in contrast with the black suit.

When I was at the register, I saw this cute pearl necklace and bracelet and I believe it goes really well with the suit. I think this adds a nice touch to the classic look and kind of softens the look as well.
I’ve combined the suit with some classic black heels. I think heels work best under a suit, it makes such a powerful statement.

Classic Black blazer.

This black blazer is available at MS mode from a European size 40 (Size 12 UK) up to a European size 54 (size 26 UK) for 49.99 euros, find it here. Usually MS mode comes out a bit larger to size, but this blazer fitted me perfectly. I would say this jacket is true to size, find their size guide here.

Metallic plissé top in silver.

This cute silver top by MS mode is available from a M up to a 3XL for 24.99 euros, find it here. I love this top and the texture is amazing. The fit on this top is a ‘loose fit’, but I prefer a more fitted top so I bought it 2 sizes smaller than usual. MS mode comes out a bit larger to size, find their size guide here.

Classic black trousers.

These classic black pants by MS mode are available from a European size 40 (size 12 UK) up to a European size 54 (size 26 UK) for 39.99 euros, find it here. I think these trousers are really comfortable and they have a little stretch.  On the other hand, the fit comes out a bit small to size. I had to go one size up, find their size guide here.
I’ve noticed that when it comes down to classic trousers I often have to go up a size in comparison with  jeans, maybe because jeans has more stretch.

Since this blog is all about suits, I thought I’d give you some cute alternative plus size suits I found online.

So dear followers, this plus size fashion spread is a wrap, more plus size novelties on the next spread.

Love Ruth.
