It’s finally time for that cute plus-size summer dress! And I call tell you I’m obsessed with this one. I love clothes that are not only cute but are comfy and make me feel great when wearing them. And this one fits all these checkpoints.
How to style the plus-size summer dress
This H&M Smocked bodice dress has in my opinion the right fit. Fitted at the top and slightly oversized at the bottom. I also love the checked pattern. I used to hate dresses like this, simply because I wasn’t comfortable in my own skin and hated my arms. You would never catch me wearing something that shows the arms. Thank God, I don’t worry about this anymore. I basically wear whatever I feel like wearing. But in case you’re still dealing with this problem, or like to wear an extra layer, you can through on this white Levi’s jeans jacket. A more affordable option is this Asos denim jacket.
Some more checked pattern inspirations
But don’t feel limited in styling it only whit a denim jacket, the possibilities are endless. Like switching the white denim jacket for a black or white blazer. Two of my favorites are the Marina Rinaldi black blazer and the white Balmain double-breasted blazer. But again these are higher in price but totally worth the investment. The quality is amazing and you can enjoy years and years from it. But if you don’t feel like spending so much on a blazer there are some great alternatives available.
Shoes and accesoires
Ok, so tons of shoes will go great with this H&M Smocked bodice dress. But this time, I’m focussing more on the casual style. I love to style a dress with sandals, slippers, or sneakers. And one latest addition to my shoe collection is the Lamirca chunky dad sandals. These are so comfortable. It feels like walking in clouds. These Mango sandals are also a great affordable option.
Or maybe your not so much into the chunky sandals, then you can opt for the Birkenstock slippers or these Jeffrey Campbell slippers. And for the sneaker look, I love these New Balance suede sneakers. But you can find some more options below.
As for accessories I like to keep it simple. Especially because the H&M Smocked bodice dress already has some playful pattern in it. These COS QUILTED OVERSIZED SHOULDER BAG is a perfect eye-catcher. Which is also available in black and blue. Isn’t it a beauty? And I really have a thing for big shoulder bags.
And I can’t style any outfit without the perfect piece of jewelry and sunglasses. If you take a look at my Instagram Page, You will see that in 90% of my plus-size outfit looks, I’m wearing a pair of sunnies. And this Missoma gold Axiom Chain Necklace and QUAY X DESI High Key sunglasses are perfect.
