Plus Size Aqua Shorts Outfits

I have been getting a lot of requests for outfits with shorts from Southern gals trying to beat the heat.  So, this is for my preppy ladies in the Dirty Dirty*!  Below are three outfits featuring plus size aqua shorts.  I chose the Bermuda length (12″), but the shorts are also available in a 7-inch length, here.  You can also find a similar teal color in a 10-inch version.

*For those unfamiliar, the “Dirty Dirty” or “Dirty South” is slang for Atlanta and the whole South Eastern region of the U.S.  I hear this frequently in Southern Hip Hop.  It’s really a term of endearment that you might hear from Southern rappers, such as Outkast or UGK.

I’m going to do a color theory review post soon.  But I hope everyone is thinking about color relationships and consulting the color wheel when putting together outfits.  This first outfit features analogous colors, blue-green and blue, which have a complementary relationship with the tan accessories (tan is orange, which is across the color wheel).  Add a cropped white cardigan, a white blazer, or even a denim jacket on cooler evenings.

This second look is really just about picking up the colors from the scarf, aqua and grey, and adding them to the outfit.  I did add some tan (orange/complementary relationship) for some interest.  Add a denim jacket on cooler evenings.

This last plus size aqua shorts outfit is all about the complementary relationship, aqua (blue-green) and coral/tan (red-orange and orange).  Mixing these color make them “pop” against one another.  Learn more here. And again with this outfit, add a denim jacket on cooler evenings.

  1. Alexa, I love everything you post!!! I am totally addicted to your blog! Thank you for sharing and helping a plain Jane spice things up!!!!

  2. Alexa,

    Love your ideas! Wondering if you knew of a good place to buy a standard tshirt that is longer in length. Seems the ones I get always shrink. Thanks for any input you have.

    1. Hi MaryBeth!
      I think everyone has this issue! First off, I only wash my tops in cold water. Then I either dry them on fluff for just a short bit before hanging to dry or just hang them. Heat is the enemy!

      I always recommend the tees from Yours Clothing, like these: http://bit.ly/2pkeWtF And these 3/4 length sleeved are my favorites: http://bit.ly/2qGvalr But, I am short.

      My very tall and long torso-ed mom swears by the tunic tees from Soft Surroundings: http://bit.ly/2qGu74U They are loose around the tummy and nice and long. She said they are worth paying more because they last so much longer than the inexpensive tees she was buying. And I have to say they are very flattering on her.

      I hope these help!
