Summer Trends in Plus-Size Clothing



Hot days and warm nights are what make summer so much fun, but it can also make getting dressed for the day a bit more difficult. You want to stay cool and look good. Luckily, there are plenty of breezy, flattering fashions to wear for summer, especially for plus sizes. Check out these warm-weather trends you can wear all summer long.

Summer Styles:

  1. Bright hues: Color is in, and the trend shows no signs of going away anytime soon. Choose pieces in bright, fresh summer colors, like sorbet orange and watermelon pink. You can go bold with one bright hue or mix it up and create a colorblock look with colored jeans and a contrasting top.

  2. Great lengths: The maxi look is a huge trend, both in skirts and dresses. They're long and flowy, and keep you cool on even the hottest day. The best thing about maxi dresses and skirts is you can go very simple or dress them up with a few accessories. A belt changes up the look and slims your waistline, while a lightweight jacket is perfect for cool evenings after the sun has gone down.

  3. White out: The saying is, "Don't wear white after Labor Day," right? That means summertime is the time for white. Nothing keeps you cool in the heat like white, and it's certainly a chic choice, too. A lightweight white blouse is an absolute summer must-have. You can pair it with your brightly colored skinny jeans or a printed mid-length skirt. Don't be afraid to wear white-on-white. It's one of the biggest trends for summer and looks great either day or night.

  4. Wedge revival: It's not a secret that wearing heels gives your legs a slimmer look, and the wedge trend is the perfect way to take advantage of that. The retro look is getting an update, so you can find a wedge in just about every style. High or low, wedges offer more support to your foot than a pump, so they're more comfortable to wear all day. Look for canvas espadrilles for a beachy daytime look and sleek peep-toes to dress up your evening wear.

  5. Very versatile: Summer style is all about easy, simple styles. Simplifying your summer wardrobe gives you more time to spend out in the sun. Look for pieces that can easily be styled for day or night, like a basic sundress. Throw it on with sandals and a braided belt for the daytime; then dress it up with heels and a pretty necklace for dinner. A lightweight blouse, pair of trouser jeans, and a maxi skirt are all great staples that can be worn several ways, depending on how you style them.
