A plus size summer vacation outfit for the beach, boardwalk, or ship deck!
Plus Size Summer Vacation Outfit
*I found this outfit idea on Pinterest with no link to the original publisher. I did a reverse Google image search and found the image for these pants at this online store. If you know who else this photo may belong to, please let me know in the comments. Thank you.
And here is my usual disclaimer.
As I’ve said, these “Straight Size to Plus Size” posts are some of my most popular, but I also get complaints that the “models” in the images aren’t “plus sized.”
So I just wanted to give a little background of why I do these types of posts:
We are all inundated every day by images of thin celebrities, models, and bloggers sporting the “latest looks,” i.e. clothing that doesn’t come in our size.
So I try to take these “unattainable” images and prove that, in fact, with some effort, plus size women can put these hot looks together.
They are attainable!
And I try to take the effort, i.e. searching everywhere for the pieces, out of the equation.
So as always, my main goal is to inspire and empower.
Ok, now back to the outfit idea!
The plus size leopard palazzo pants are the star here.
I love them! Unfortunately, the are only available to a size 2X.
As you may know, I make it a policy that all of the featured clothing go to at least a size 24.
But, I had to make an exception.
That said, I found some alternatives for you, including leopard maxi skirts.
Plus Size Leopard Pants & Skirts
As I’ve said many times, leopard is a neutral.
I attempted to find accessories similar to the “straight size” outfit.
Starting with a straw rancher hat.
I think the sunglasses are similar to these tortoise aviators from Quay.
For sandals, the straight size woman looks to be wearing the Valentino Rockstud slides.
The cloud bag is still trending. I have also heard it called a “dumpling bag.”
You can carry it as a clutch or with a crossbody strap.
For the jewelry, I kept things very simple.
I know you have heard me talk about Pavoi a lot, but they are so great for the affordable prices!
The delicate bracelets featured in this look are made by Mevecco, which I’ve mentioned many times before.
I’m quite impressed.
These are inexpensive plated pieces so you might need to “baby” them for longevity.
Avoid the obvious: showers, pools, spraying your wrist with perfume while wearing them.
Store them in air-tight plastic bags, if possible. This will keep the plating from damage and tarnishing.
This buttery bronzer has a nice neutral undertone and works will with my light skin tone.
It also has a nice glow to it, but don’t worry, it’s not glittery or sparkly.
Unfortunately this bronzer doesn’t come in deeper shades.
So, if you have a deeper complexion, try this bronzer instead.
And if you’re looking for a good “drugstore” bronzer, the Physican’s Formula Butter Bronzer is it. Hands down.
It’s an amazing formula and comes in a bunch of shades for under 10 bucks!
Oh and it smells like the beach!
