What’s My Style? A Guide to Plus Size Casual Outfits
Casual style can be difficult to define because we all dress down from time to time. Even the most glamorous among us have casual outfits in their wardrobes. But when it comes to defining your own personal style, it’s important to know what you wear most often. If you rock heels each day but the occasional joggers and tee on the weekend, you’re probably not a casual girl. However, if the clothes you see here are about as dressed up as you get, casual style is right up your alley!
Here’s an example of a Dia Style Box featuring casual summer pieces.
To help you get a feel for what casual style is, here are some good rules of thumb.
You’re probably not a casual dresser if:
- Your friends tell you that you’re the fanciest of the crew.
- Mixing patterns and layering on accessories isn’t really your thing.
- You’d feel uncomfortable wearing jeans every day.
- Flats and sneakers are at a minimum in your closet.
You probably are a casual dresser if:
- You value simplicity and comfort over all else.
- Statement pieces aren’t something you care for—you very much prefer versatile styles.
- You generally wear knit (a.k.a. stretchy!) styles and not woven.
- Jewelry and accessories aren’t important elements to your outfits.
Just because you love comfy and fuss-free clothing doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with fashion! Here are some put-together plus size casual outfits to inspire you when you’re getting ready in the morning.
Wish sweatpants were chic? Try joggers! They’re an unexpected silhouette that pairs perfectly with easy tanks, sneakers, and travel days.
Pair a comfy top like a sweatshirt with your joggers and look for fashion details like prints and cut-outs to make your effortless outfit look polished.
Yes, you can wear sneakers with a dress. Dress down this closet staple with a casual plus size dark denim jacket and a hands-free crossbody bag.
A comfy knit printed top with features like bows or ties elevates your everyday denim-and-sandals ensemble. White denim adds a layer of sophistication and can even be paired with more denim like a plus size denim jacket of a different wash or color.
A tunic and cute plus size jeans can be chic when paired with flats that have a fun visual element, like a playful print or unique straps.
An oversized-sweater-and-jeans combo is always cozy and comfy, but a layering tee and printed flats make your outfit more thoughtful.
Instead of the expected solid plus size sweaters and blue jeans look, try grey jeans and graphic plus size cardigan sweaters for an unexpected-but-easy outfit.
Comfy leggings or even some plus size capris jeans get a polished update when paired with a unique graphic sweater. Completed with a polished jacket and sneakers, this is the perfect weekend outfit.
