Plus Size on a Budget – Boho Outfits

A plus size boho outfit idea for summer.  And the next in my “plus size on a budget series!”  Plus, a second look with a different color of a peplum top.

My “Disclaimer”

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.

Outfit Details

A statement feather necklace “pops” with this coral peplum t-shirt.  

Throw them on with some cut-off denim Bermuda shorts.

Complete this boho look with a crochet tote bag, a leather and stone bracelet, and trendy thick hoop earrings.

I wanted to mention that I recently purchased a lot of jewelry from the earring’s brand, PAVOIfrom Amazon, and must say the quality is really great for the prices!

In this second look, I swapped the coral tee for a navy peplum tank.

And switched to a cute crochet crossbody because why not?

  1. Thank you for featuring these cute peplum tops!l love the necklace you chose too, and the crochet bag and sandals! I have a need to stay out of the sun. What sort of hat do you think would look best with this outfit? Any suggestions for a good sunless tanner? Thank you for keeping it classy, no matter how much you can (or can’t or won’t) spend. 💋

  2. Just an FYI, the coral peplum tee runs really large. I normally wear a 2X. I ordered a 1X and it was still way too big. I could probably do a L or XL in this top.
