Plus Size Casual Summer Dress Outfit

A plus size casual summer dress outfit with a ruched knit dress and bold necklace.

This dress is quite similar to a blogger favorite I talked about back in 2018Plus Size Ruched Sleeveless Jersey Dress in Charcoal Grey - Alexa Webb

And it’s a favorite for good reason!  Comfortable, flattering, and versatile. 

Versatility

This dress can take you from day to night with just some simple accessory changes.

And it can go from a casual office to a casual brunch all the same.

For this plus size casual summer dress outfit idea, I opted for an easy summer ensemble that is carefree but polished just enough that you could wear it to the office on a casual Friday.

Just swap the wristlet for your favorite work tote.

And if you wanted to make it a bit more work-appropriate opt for a white or ivory blazer and some flats.

Shoes & Accessories

I topped this sleeveless dress with a lightweight white cardi with waterfall front detail. 

I actually have this cardi and it’s the perfect weight for a summer night or aggressive air conditioning.

For the shoes, I wanted a chic yet casual sandal.  I think these gorgeous Frye open-toe heeled sandals fit the bill.

Keeping the same vibe with rich cognac leather, I chose this Hobo wristlet

I cannot speak highly enough about the quality of the brand Hobo.  I have several of their bags and they literally last forever.

Jewelry

Obviously, the star of the show is this turquoise slab bib necklace.  So beautiful!

You actually might remember a similar statement necklace from this look.  It just never goes out of style!

As for the rest of the jewelry, add some trendy thick hoop earrings.

I wanted to mention that I recently purchased a lot of jewelry, including these hoops, from this brand, PAVOIfrom Amazon, and must say the quality is really great for the prices!

You can check out some more of my picks in my Amazon store.

Stack on some gold link bracelets.  Add another pop of turquoise on the wrist with a beaded bracelet in the mix.

Makeup

I usually try to include lipstick suggestions in my posts, but today I also included a bronzer. 

The gorgeous turquoise packaging of this Gucci bronzer may have caught your eye. 

Now, I personally haven’t tried this fancy bronzer but Allie Glines told me to get it if I wanted to splurge.  She raved about it!

But it is bonkers expensive and I just can’t.  For now.  Lol.

My current go-to bronzer is being discontinued.  (I mean wtf).  It’s currently on sale so I stocked up like the makeup junkie that I am. 

If you’re looking for a finely milled matte bronzer, give it a try.  It’s one of the best I’ve tried.  

No patchiness.  I swear it blends itself!

I have fair to light skin and use the “Light Neutral Bronze.”  It is truly a neutral undertone, which I really appreciate since bronzers often pull red on me.

I also use the bronzer in the Hourglass face palette I got for Christmas.  It’s also really gorgeous.  

But, if you’re on a budget or just don’t want to be a bougie makeup hoarder like me, I highly recommend this much more affordable bronzer from Physician’s Formula.

I use the original “Bronzer” color and also find it to have a very neutral undertone.  It’s a really nice powder and smells like coconut sunscreen.
