Who says prints make you look bigger? The right print can actually draw attention to your curves, enhance your figure and are must-haves for every wardrobe. We have found some great outfits that will easily work for your next vacation, the beach, a summer wedding, date night or even to work. No need to follow the “rules” of plus-size dressing anymore; the most important rule is to dress like the most stylish version of you.
1. Cactus Printed Tankini
The Cactus Printed Tankini Top is great for your next beach or poolside vacation. The suit has a semi-fitted fitted silhouette to slightly hug your curves with an empire waist and adjustable, convertible straps. Pair with a solid bottom, some fabulous sunnies and a wide straw hat and get ready for heads to turn.
2. Detail Jumpsuit
This blue and white floral jumpsuit with cross detailing at the neck gives you the best of both worlds between a cold shoulder and an off the shoulder flirty look. With elbow length sleeves and slightly wide legs, this jumpsuit is poised to be your go-to party outfit of the season. Pair with flats or flip-flops for casual daytime and up the ante with your fiercest pair of heels for a night out on the town.
3. Culotte Jumpsuit
The Culotte Jumpsuit is one of those perfect Spring into Summer one-pieces that is just grab and go. With its uber-flattering strapless top, skinny belt that accentuates the waist and mid-length bottoms, all you need to worry about is what shoes to pair with this. Grab some shimmer body cream to accentuate the open decolletage area some large hoop earrings and get ready for a great evening.
4. Printed Romper
Affectionately called the “shmaxi,” this floral print romper has a maxi skirt overlay giving a fresh take on an already must-have item. Complete with a semi cut out back and button zip closure, this romper would be a great outfit to take on a cruise or girls night out. The leg-lengthening silhouette will give you legs for days – just don’t forget the self-tanner.
5. Belted Jumpsuit
Another great floral option is this billowy belted jumpsuit. It has a great all over navy paisley pattern and fun leg openings that make the illusion of dress when standing at just the right angle. The tank-style top and lightweight material make it a great daytime look but can easily transition into nighttime with the addition of a metallic sandal, gold jewelry and cropped denim jacket.
