A new look for my “plus size on a budget series!” This plus size blue dress outfit is great for early spring or warm climates. Plus, it is totally affordable!
I want to prevent some anticipated feedback. So please keep these things in mind:
- “Budget” is relative. Some people easily spend $300 on sunglasses, while other people allocate $300 for their annual clothing budget.
- You may be able to find these items elsewhere for less. These are just some “budget-friendly” finds I have come across. And I typically don’t link to clearance items because they sell out and then people are disappointed. Also, I have no way of linking to thrift stores, but obviously, if you want to check out your local thrift stores, I think that is a great idea!
- Recycle & reuse. As with all of my posts, I hope that you can use the pieces you already have in your wardrobe. Additionally, I assume that you can reuse all of the pieces below in other combinations with things in your closet to create a variety of looks. Meaning, I think it is unfair to judge the expense of one outfit as though that is the only way to wear the pieces.
A royal blue knit dress with statement earrings and bold orange bracelets. Top with a denim jacket as needed.
I added some basic cognac sandals and a crossbody bag.
I love that the bit of brown in the wood of the earrings coordinates with the cognac of the sandals, bag, and sunglasses.
And of course, I picked up the orange in the earrings with the bracelets. And if you’ve read my Color Theory for Fashionistas post, you know that these are complementary colors, which means they “pop.”
And lastly, I added this beautiful blue ring, which is an amazing price!

I love this! I just scored a very similar dress from ThredUP. I’d love to see other ideas to style it, too.
