8 Plus-Size Summer Outfits That Are Totally en Fuego
As much as we wish we could spend the whole summer in bathing suits and cover-ups, actual outfits are sometimes (read: often) required. To keep things stylish and seasonally appropriate, copy these eight ladies’ swoon-worthy outfits.
Printed Wrap Dress + Wedges
Hello, gorgeous. For dressier summertime affairs, we love a bold, printed dress with neutral shoes. The wrap dress is universally flattering while the low wedges add height without the pain of, say, a stiletto.
Off-the-Shoulder Top + Ruffled Skirt
The beauty of this outfit is that both of these pieces can be worn together or separately. The top would look amazing with jeans, cutoffs or any length skirt, while the pretty, twirly skirt can be dressed down with a white tee.
Denim Shorts + White Sneakers
How do you take a casual cutoffs-and-sneakers combination and make it gown-lady appropriate? Make like Katie Sturino: Tuck in a simple tee—long sleeve or short—and keep the accessories and embellishments to a minimum.
Gingham Top + White Jeans
Gingham is trending and white jeans are forever. Remember that white denim can be worn interchangeably with darker washes, so throw caution to the wind and try it out with just about any top—casual or statement. (P.S. Love the red shoes for contrast.)
Printed Romper + Flat Sandals
A one-piece is the ultimate in effortless dressing. When it’s hot out, opt for a short version and finish off the look with flat sandals, which keep it grounded and daytime apropos.
T-Shirt Dress + Sandals
Hey, you know those days when you can’t be bothered to spend any more than three minutes getting dressed? Slip into this chill girl vibe, which is really just a stone’s throw away from wearing a nightgown.
Knotted T-Shirt + Palazzo Pants
Three things to note here: First, palazzo pants, despite being, you know, pants, are actually very easy and breezy. Second, if you can find a vertically-striped pair, go for it (they’ll make your legs look longer). Third, knotting any old T-shirt is an easy way to elevate a casual piece and define your waist.
Off-the-Shoulder Dress + Mules
This breezy combination is easy to put together and looks summery and chic in just about any situation.
