‘One size fits all’ no longer applies to the world we live in. We live in a world where we want to feel fabulous about what we wear. How many of us have wasted minutes googling (yes it is a word) dresses for plus size only to find too much information and then get confused. Well, that’s why we are here. Whether you are looking to flaunt those curves or conceal them, we are sharing our best tips for dresses for the summer.
Read on to figure out the best summer dress styles for plus size as you go out and about.
Maxi Dress Style
Are you more comfortable with a maxi dress? Maxi dresses are very flattering on women who are larger, that is one of the reasons it can be styled irrespective of the occasion. Opt for a more structured fabric (instead of jersey) with drape, gossamer layers, a side slit, or some other interesting design elements. If there’s a lining that smoothens your curves, even better.
Maxi dresses work really well on plus size women – the trick is to use belts and shoes to flaunt what you want. You can pinch your waist with the belt for definition. With the maxi dress, you can try pumps or heels. During cooler days, you can give ankle-length boots a go.
Wrap Dress Style
The wrap dress with its v-neck creates a well-defined shape around your body, elongates your neck, and hugs your best assets. To be honest, we feel the wrap dress is one of the best styles for plus size summer dresses.
Experiment with fabrics! Since this style is perfect for all occasions, take your styling cues from the fabric you’re wearing. If it’s cotton and casual, but you want to add some pizzas, accessorize accordingly. Wearing silk? You can dress it down with sneakers or sandals or dress it up with black patent pumps and your favorite statement stunners.
Shirt Dress Style
Shirt dress is an absolute classic style, which we love due to the already built-in structure, a button-down neckline, and immense wearability.
This style is a favorite with so many Indian women since it is not just a great summer dress for plus size women but it also works well for the hourglass and pear body shape.
Shirt dresses can be thrown on with little to no thought or added fuss. Sounds good, right? That’s the beauty of throwing on this piece. Wear it with sandals in summer or sneakers for a more comfy look. Or pair it over your favorite bootcut jeans with a classic belt and boots during cooler weather.
Shift Dress Style
Shift dress is a really comfortable and effortless style dress for plus size women and is the ultimate easy-to-wear piece for every day. It gives a look of built-in structure and shape. As it falls directly from the shoulders, it gives a great definition to curvy bodies.
This style also works well for the apple and the inverted triangle body shape.
Pair it with sneakers for the day and a denim jacket or a blazer and black sling-back pumps for special occasions for that stunning look.
