8 Plus Size Vacation Outfits to Rock This Season 

1. White Hot Summer Dress

There’s no colour that says summer more than white, and we love how influencer Elisabeth Hartman styled her white mini dress. Not only does the colour really pop on sunkissed skin, it also helps reflect the sun’s rays to make us feel less hot. If white is the go-to colour of the season, then linen is the favourite fabric of summer — which is why we think you need a dress in this colour and material. Elisabeth jazzes up her outfit with black accessories (notably with bows, which are so hot right now), but you can really make this look your own with gold jewelry, colourful scarves, pops of neon — you name it! Wear a nude shade of our Cooling shorties to stay chafe- and sweat-free on a hot day. 

2. 3D Flowers

From tops to dresses to skirts, 3D flower appliqués are everywhere this season and really enhance a sunny day look. If you’re currently planning your plus size beach vacation outfits, a 3D flower dress is a fashion knockout, especially if you choose one in a bright colour. We love this lime green hue, which suits a variety of complexions and is trending this season.

3. Apron Belly Approved

@veronicafreund #2 came out so cute! 🛍️links to all pants, shirts and accessories on my Amazon store PLEASE READ!!!!! MY links have been glitchy due to an Instagram problem. If you do NOT receive the link they will be in MY STORIES and on my AMAZON storefront on my main profile ❤️. As someone with a large lower tummy (my largest area) I was flabbergasted that these size XL fit and so well! I am usually an xxl or 1x! So excited to have such breezy pants for the hot days coming! Plus these would also look SO CUTE with a sweater on this weather. I might have tried it! He he. #curvyfashion #midsizestyle #plussizestyle #affordablefashion #amazonfinds #bodypositive ♬ original sound - VeronicaFreund

Now for a more casual look; everyone needs a pair of soft, lightweight pants to get through the summer. We love easy trousers you reach for when you’re going to run errands or heading to the airport. If you have an apron belly, it’s extra important to find a pair with a waistband that doesn’t uncomfortably cling to or squeeze your midriff. These breezy pants are perfect on a hot day with a tank top, allowing you to move comfortably wherever you need to go.

 4. Tube Top Set

We can’t get enough of matching sets, and this black-and-white tube top and skirt ensemble is so cute. With some black sunglasses and flats, this makes for a perfect alfresco lunch look, or pair it with heels and statement jewelry for a summer soiree outfit. The versatility makes it a go-to plus size vacation outfit and you’ll love looking back at your summer pics with this stylish look.

 5. Fringe Fabulous

@natalieinthecity wearing what I want this summer as a 5’2 size 20 ☀️ would you wear this plus size summer fit? @ELOQUII @Amazon @Amazon Fashion #plussizestyle #plussizeoutfit #plussizeoutfitideas #petiteplus #maxiskirt #summerootd #plussizeootd #petiteandplus #summerplussizefashion #plussizesummeroutfits #eloquii #plussizeamazonfinds #size20style #size20 ♬ sabrina please please please - iman .ᐟ⋆.✶

This fringe ‘fit is stunning to wear to a beach party or on your next vacation. Pair it with a similarly coloured skirt to create a fun outfit bound to dazzle onlookers with its movement. This looks especially good when you pair a white top with a sand-coloured skirt on a scorching day. In the video, creator Natalie wears a pair of shorts underneath her look to stay comfortable. Copy her style with one of our Almond Original shorties, which are velvety soft and keep your thighs from chafing. Our shorties go hand-in-hand (or should we say thigh-in-thigh?) with your plus size resort wear wardrobe.

6. Off-the-Shoulder Stunner

@alwayshonestreviews Replying to @Vero Lynn This dress is super stretchy and can fit more sizes! #plussize #summerdress #springdress #dollskill #fisforfairies ♬ original sound - Big GYAL Beauty

Off-the-shoulder dresses look good on everyone and should be a staple in your vacation plus size outfits roster. The green dress worn in the video cinches the waist and enhances your curves without clinging to them. Sometimes this mini silhouette can be a little revealing when the wind blows or a little too short to cover our behinds on public transportation (sitting with your skin touching on the subway is not our favourite), so a pair of Thigh Society shorties underneath adds a little extra coverage and protection.

7. Cargo Casual

Cargo pants with a tank top makes for the perfect stylish city dweller outfit, especially when topped with a baseball cap. Wear this look to get a cocktail outdoors when the temps cool off slightly towards the evening. Cargos are super popular this summer and come in very lightweight materials so even if it’s sweltering you can easily achieve this cool aesthetic. Plus, the cap is perfect for an unruly hair day!

8. Scarf Chic


There’s probably a satin or silk scarf hidden in a corner of your closet that deserves to shine this summer. Sometimes the best vacation plus size outfits are already in your closet. We love this pink outfit with a scarf tied into a cropped top with pink pants. If you don’t know where to start with tying a scarf into a top, there are hundreds of YouTube videos to help. You’ll be making off-the-shoulder, triangle and crop tops in no time.
