The Best Plus Size Pieces To Build Up Your Spring And Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Image: New Look

With the weather finally warming up, it’s time to put together our looks for the sunny season, and we have the best trending plus size pieces to get you on your way...

With sustainability and the environment being at the forefront of many of our minds right now, retailers and designers are being urged into thinking more consciously when it comes to fashion. Fast fashion is becoming increasingly unappealing to consumers, as we gravitate towards the idea of investing in staple pieces that will last, and not cheaply buying into trends that won’t. With this in mind, we’re finding ourselves beginning to focus more on the pieces that we’ll wear into the ground, rather than those one-hit-wonders that we often get tempted by. Dressing our curves up in the classics is the new way to go, and frankly the plus size offering from our favourite retailers has never been better.

But it can be difficult not buying into those micro-trends that we’d normally never look twice at until all the celebs and influencers start sporting them. Whether it’s reflective crops at festivals or neon catsuits by the beach, if we see a Kardashian serving all kinds of curvy inspiration in it, we’re instantly hooked. But once they’re over it, so are we, and it becomes a slippery slope. Research says that we wear less than 50% of our clothes, which isn’t very surprising. But this doesn’t stop the fact that we’re always looking out for something new, and for the fashion conscious, we want to keep changing up our styles. Lucky for us, there’s a simple solution to this need of ours: building up a capsule wardrobe. Everyone who’s anyone right now is beginning to invest in those timeless pieces that can be regularly changed up to make a look feel fresh and on trend. From a spring wrap midi dress to take you through all warm seasons to come, to some everyday jeans that you can easily glam up and caj down, we’ve built up the perfect seasonal capsule collection, especially for all us curvy girls out there.

Keep on scrolling to take a look at these plus size beauties that will revamp your spring and summer style in just a few quick clicks.

The Wrap Dress

A casual spring and summer dress that can easily be elevated by some strappy heels for a smarter attire is a must for anyone's wardrobe. With animal print proving to be huge this year, with zero plans of going anywhere soon, we're loving this leopard wrap midi number. The wrap front is ultra flattering on bigger busts and hugs the waistline too for a more defined silhouette. If you're a plus size gal and proud, this dress shape is a must. Oasis have sensational day time dresses for all your curves and swerves, but Missguided plus size dresses take the crown come evening.

The Boyfriend Jeans

Some cool ripped jeans, paired with a cute top is perfect for spring and the cooler days of summer, and can easily be glammed up with some slinky heels, or kept casual with your go-to white trainers.  Boyfriend jeans are the perfect fit for curve-boasting girls with hips as the legs are straighter and looser - that means the silhouette means totally even and balanced. With a nice top + jeans that hug in all the right places, you'll be living in these by the time they arrive to your front door.
