Beat the Heat -- Top 5 Curvy Fashion Choices for Hot Weather
June 29 2015 – Zoe Schuler
The temperatures are rising and we have lots of fabulous frocks to keep you cool this summer. Here are our top 5 picks for comfortable, lightweight and fashionable plus-size hot weather fashion.
1. Beachcomber Dress by Flax
Flax is our #1 choice to keep you cool all summer long. Linen is lightweight and breathable. We have several plus-size Flax options available at the boutique, but we especially like the Beachcomber dress for several reasons. First of all, it has sleeves. Second, it's a shift dress so you won't have fabric clinging to you on a hot and muggy day. It's meant to fit loosely and comfortably. And finally the fun pattern on this dress help to hide wrinkles that sometimes linen clothing is prone to.
2. Pretty Tops & Camis by SWAK Designs
These best-sellers from SWAK Designs are hot-weather must haves. Available in a cami or a flutter sleeve option -- you can't go wrong with either choice. The material is soft, lightweight and flowy. It drapes away from the body for a cool and flattering look.
3. Bubbly Burst Top from Nic & Zoe
This Nic & Zoe tank is a great option for the workplace. Wear it to keep cool yet office appropriate. The purple and navy bubble pattern is festive. One of our favorite parts of this top is the three buttons in the back that bring in the waist and add a fun & unexpected detail. This top looks great with denim, skirts, or white pants.
4. Tie Dyed Dress by LA Blend
This tie dyed dress is a fun option for a casual outing. Wear it to the park with the kids, to a summer cookout or party. It's heavy enough that it will stay put on a windy day, but is made of breathable fabric to help you beat the heat. It features sleeves for those that want to cover their arms. And it has fun pockets just below the hips. The asymmetrical hemline adds another unique touch.
5. Blurred Zebra Fit & Flare Dress by MaiTai
Pick this summer dress for a semi-casual summer wedding. It is made of lightweight fabric. The fit and flare silhouette is flattering on just about everyone because it highlights the smallest part of the waist. We recommend adding a fun belt or an unexpected pop of color by wearing bright shoes or carrying a bright handbag. The best part? It's budget friendly and only costs $48.
