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.
8 Plus-Size Summer Outfits That Are Totally en Fuego
Printed Wrap Dress + Wedges
Off-the-shoulder Top + Ruffled Skirt
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.)
T-shirt Dress + Sandals
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.
