Sporty details and casually elegant fabrics: These plus size looks from the 05/2019 issue of BurdaStyle magazine combine style and comfort that works for time in the office or a day in the city full of fun.


A fresh twist on the classic blazer. This style has a shawl lapel and diagonal flap pockets as well as a stylish sleeve feature that lets you gather them with drawstring casings.


Wear it solo or as a long blouse as we have done here. This collarless shirt dress with the partially covered placket and a petersham tying band is a choice with many styling options. If you want to relax the look, simply roll the sleeves to the elbow.


This petrol color blouse sewn with Crêpe de Chine is quite a fresh look – the casual cut lets the matt/shiny effect have maximum impact. A sewn-on decorative chain at the neckline is a beautiful finish.


This sophisticated faux wrap skirt is a quick sewing project. An elastic waistband with a drawstring casing lets you adjust the fit high or low on the waist.


The graphic print of the crêpe fabric underlines the feminine touch for this sporty shirt dress. Rounded hem slits and precise cuffs are beautiful extras.


The delicate pink of the poplin gets a striking counterbalance with the addition of a topstitched petersham accent along the neckline. The shape of the neckline is quite flattering and one thing is certain: This tunic is a winning style!


An asymmetric cut and a soft silk jersey drape in a lovely way on this shirt with the cropped sleeves with ribbed cuffs and bonus: A wide strap lets you comfortably wear this with a brassiere.

    Shirtdress not shirtless – dumb autocorrect!

    I like the shirtless with the fitted top – less bulky and sloppy. I will add a collar, though. Plain round neckline do not flatter me.
