8 Plus-Size Summer Trends to Shop Now

With these hot temps, you want to have a versatile summer wardrobe. Not to mention you’ve got two out-of-office days each week, which means you have the freedom to switch up your look a bit and start playing with some unexpected pieces.

This season’s trends include a mix of summer classics, such as rompers and kimonos, along with standout styles like layered fishnet tights and corsets with T-shirts. Using bold stripes and bright colors is an effortless way to make a fashion statement during these dare-to-bare months.

Since I know how easy it can be to resort to the standard T-shirt and denim shorts combo in warm weather, here are some fun and easy trends to try that will get you out of a style rut. Click through for some stylish summertime outfit ideas!
