What to Wear at the Office for Bigger Guys


back to blog

At work, you want to perform at your best, and to perform at your best, you need to be confident. When you look good, you feel good. But if you’re a big and tall guy, finding clothes to fit and flatter can be a bit harder.

That’s why we’ve put together a few tips to help you dress for success in the office.

Before we dive into our guide, it’s important to understand that for bigger guys, fit is key. You don’t want to wear clothes that are too tight and restrict your movement, but you also don’t want items that drown you. This is where our great range of clothing at BadRhino comes in. We have pieces from M8XL, so  it’s easy to find something that fits perfectly.

Now, let’s take a look at some of our top office staples:

Professional Dress Code

If your place of work requires a smarter dress code, try opting for neutral colours and accessorise with subtle pieces like a watch and cufflinks, to add the finishing touches.
A smart shirt goes a long way when you’re trying to smarten up your look – keep it classy and try out our BadRhino Big & Tall White Essential Long Sleeve Oxford Shirt or BadRhino Big & Tall Light Blue Essential Long Sleeve Oxford Shirt.

Smart Casual

If you have a slightly more relaxed dress code at work, use this opportunity to inject some colour and personality into your style. Go for a smart pair of chinos or trousers with a bolder shirt. The BadRhino Big & Tall Burgundy Red Long Sleeve Oxford Shirt and BadRhino Big & Tall Charcoal Grey Stretch Trousers make for a great combination that will keep you looking great and feeling comfortable throughout your work day.

Make sure all of your pieces are well fitted and that you wear them with confidence. Balance out the bolder colours with neutral trousers or chinos in darker tones – like grey or black.


If you’re lucky enough to work in a relaxed office environment, but you still want to look smart, then go for a pair of trousers with a more relaxed collared shirt. The BadRhino Big & Tall Black Stretch Trousers and BadRhino Big & Tall Pink Essential Short Sleeve Oxford Shirt make for an easy casual look that will ensure you stay professional yet comfortable.

Top Office Fashion Tips for Big & Tall Men

Now that you have a few great options to get you looking great in the office, take a look at our top tips for bigger guys:

  • Choose Lighter Materials – Wearing pieces made from lightweight fabrics like cotton, linen and polyester will keep you feeling dry and comfortable throughout the day. This is especially important during the hotter months.
  • Look for Stretch Materials – Pick clothing that has a bit of stretch in it. This will provide you with more flexibility, so you can move easily without your clothes feeling too restrictive.
  • Get the Right Fit – As we said, fit is key. Your clothes should fit perfectly – not too tight and not too loose. If you’re unsure, ask a friend or family member for their opinion or take a look at our helpful size guide.

Following these tips should make it easy to dress for success at the office. Whether you opt for a classic business look or something more relaxed, make sure it fits well and feels comfortable. Browse our full range of Big & Tall clothing today, to find your perfect office look.
