Plus size fashion has come a long way in recent years. You no longer need to compromise your everyday style due to a lack of options for plus size casual outfits. Even better, you can up your off-duty fashion game with some simple casual updates to your capsule wardrobe.
Whether you’re spending your weekend having lunch with the girls or going on a date with your guy, you’ll feel fantastic in these foolproof outfits that flatter your curves.
Plus Size Casual Outfits: the Kimono
If you’re looking for something cool, comfortable and oh-so stylish, look no further than the humble kimono. An effortless way to inject some interesting prints and colors into your everyday outfits, the kimono is also an easy way to style up simple basics. Team yours with slim fit jeans and a white cami top for an on-trend but casual look. Add ankle booties or pumps to complete the look.
Hero Piece: The Military Shirt
Sure, a classic white shirt has stood the test of time as a go-to piece, but the military shirt packs a bigger punch in the style stakes. Available in a range of versatile colors from camel through to khaki, wear a loose boyfriend style over ripped denim for instant cool points. Alternatively pair with a knee-length prom style skater skirt to add a dose of femininity to a masculine shirt.
Hero Piece: The Seventies Flare Jean
Rejoice; the seventies kick flare is back in a big way! The good news is, it’s the most flattering shape of all, in particular for women with curves. The flared shape helps to balance out hips and create the illusion of longer legs when paired with a platform or slight heel. For super-flattering results, try a dark wash hue. Team with a rollneck knit and fringe bag to complete the look.
Hero Piece: The Color Pop Coat
There’s no quicker way to liven up your weekend wardrobe than by throwing on a bright coat. On your off-duty days, leave the sensible blacks, navys and greys for the working week and opt for something altogether cheerier! The latest longer-length duster styles are seriously flattering and super-chic.
