There is no question that the fashion industry has a long way to go when it comes to inclusivity including plus-size outfits. When shopping for plus-size outfits, the options to beat the heat can feel incredibly limited. Most street style inspiration for warm weather looks like tight dresses, skirts with short hemlines, and heavily cropped everything when scrolling through street style galleries. While plus-size women can also wear these looks proudly, the lack of representation gives a different impression to society, and that’s where the problem lies.
You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for plus-size outfits inspiration exclusively for people with curves. Presenting The 10 best plus-size outfits you can wear any day.
1. Blouse with one shoulder and jeans
With a fresh one-shoulder blouse and figure-hugging, dark wash jeans, you can create a cute going-out outfit that you can wear on a date or for cocktail hour.
A jumpsuit will come in handy whenever it’s too hot to wear anything more than what’s necessary. You can accessorize the ensemble with strappy sandals and chunky bracelets if you’re heading out, but you can also keep it low-key with white sneakers and dainty jewelry if you’re staying in.
3. Maxi skirt and white t-shirt
Is there anything easier than tucking a plain white t-shirt into a trendy pleated maxi skirt? When you travel, wear the top tucked in, or knotted at the waist as shown, for shopping, lunch, beach bars, and sightseeing.
4. Midi Skirts
For warm summer days that turn into cool summer nights, midi skirts are just right. They’re neither too short nor too long. Plus, they look great with most tops in your closet, so try them with button-downs tied in the front, crop tops, and graphic tees. Mixing colors and patterns can look good; it all looks good in the end.
No matter what anyone tells you, bold patterns and checkered prints look great on every body type. You can tone down your statement piece by pairing it with monochromatic accessories, such as a black sun hat and heels.
6. Wearing a striped dress and a white blazer
The vertical stripes in this cheerful yellow dress are always flattering. With a crisp white blazer and white accessories, as shown here, you can dress it up for work or going out.
Once you find the perfect bralette for your cup size, you won’t want to take it off. When worn as a summer top with high-waisted shorts or a skirt, this undergarment becomes an outer garment.
8. The t-shirt and the maxi skirt
For a chic casual look, you can wear to brunch, shopping, or running errands, tuck a message t-shirt into your favorite floor-grazing summer skirt. A diagonal-patterned skirt, such as this one, is great for flattering curvy figures.
9. Graphic Tees
This summer, graphic tees are coming back and coming in hot, so dust off your old band tees and Hot Topic purchases. Wear frayed denim, bike shorts, or a skort for a throwback look. When it comes to footwear, nothing beats short-shorts and summer boots, but we recommend switching to sandals when the temperatures rise.
10. Cottagecore in any form
It seems the trend of peasant dresses with puff sleeves won’t fade away for summer. Cottagecore can be fully embraced with lace and straw hats, or it can be subtly incorporated with statement sleeves, pops of lace or ruffles, and bows or buttons.
