Summer is here, and that means that many of us are swapping out our sweaters for tank tops, our sneakers for sandals, and our denim for linen. It’s a great time for exploring new fashion, but how on earth can make all of those summer trends work with your cute curvy style?
Don’t stress, girl. I’m here to help by showing off some of my favorite pieces for putting together great plus size summer outfits! Start out your summer by heading to your favorite curvy clothing boutique and picking up these must-haves!
Tank tops are a great summer staple for literally everyone. They’re breathable, lightweight, and show just enough skin to give you a nice tan. Who wouldn’t want to add them to their curvy style game?
In fact, tanks can easily be a part of just about every flattering plus size summer outfit. I wear mine all. of. the. time! However, the fit does matter — more specifically, the length. Look for tunic-style tanks that hit lower on your hip. This cut will give you the look of a longer torso and create a smooth, chic look.
There’s nothing I hate more than summer shorts that fit too tightly. Who wants to spend the hot, humid afternoons with their bottoms stuck to them?
Luckily, curvy style this season is all about flowy, loose-fitting shorts. Fabrics like linen and rayon are making a big splash, and the wide-leg, drawstring-style short is everywhere! Grab a few of these (you can even play with fun patterns) and pair them with cute sandals and your favorite tee. Just like that, you’ve got the perfect plus size summer outfit!
Summer fashion isn’t just about tees and shorts. After all, summer is the season of weddings, hot dates, and more than a few nights on the town! A few plus size, curvy dresses can add a flirty, feminine element to your curvy style, which is a perfect choice for this fun, relaxed time of year.
Look for dresses that you feel flatter your figure (this will vary from woman to woman, but a-line dresses tend to look great on everyone) in a color that makes you smile. Summer is all about fun, so don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colors and funky patterns.
These tips will help you create a summer wardrobe that is all you, girl! Best of all, you can find a lot of your summer essentials here at Urban Elements Boutique! Take a look around and see if something catches your eye. You’ll certainly be eye-catching in the perfect plus size summer outfit!
