Five Perfect Plus Size Summer Dresses (and under $100!)

How to Find On-Trend and Cheap Plus Size Summer Dresses When You Want to Look Chic on a Budget

Hello! Didn’t winter just last forever…? And I mean FOREVER. Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a good boot and jacket look, but I was so tired of that cold that as soon as I got a WHIFF of Spring, I was already ready for Summer (LOL); I was filling up my online carts with all sorts of cute stuff! And by “Cute stuff,” I mean cheap plus size summer dresses.

We see the word “cheap” and we might think, “that’s not for me, I don’t want to look cheap!” But hear me out. Finding affordable plus size clothing that’s still well-made and on-trend can be tough! I like to share both luxury AND affordable finds because that’s how I dress, high and low.

The FIVE hot trends to pay attention to when looking for an affordable plus size summer

I am a big fan of dresses; in fact dresses make up about 85% of my wardrobe – and although I have my staple pieces that I LOVE. I also like to pay attention to trends and there are some fun and gorgeous trends this year. Here are five dress trends to look at this season:

  1. Puff Sleeve Dresses: The puff sleeve isn’t going anywhere. A few years ago, the romantic trend burst onto the scene and it hasn’t really left. Puff sleeves look great on almost everybody, and if you have thicker upper arms, the extra room is a little life hack. 
  2. Red Dresses: The colour red is a power colour. It evokes passion, love, adventure and energy. It’s no wonder we want to wear red more as the weather warms up.
  3. Shirt Dresses: Y’all know I love a good shirt dress. It is a classic that you can dress up and down easily. Luckily, a LOT of retailers are making shirt dresses this season, so there are some great options.
  4. Faux Leather Dresses: Leather in the spring and summer used to be unheard of, but the last few years, we have seen leather being cut into spring-ready silhouettes such as shorts and short dresses. I also LOVE seeing plus size faux leather in fun colours.
  5. Joyful Dresses: It’s no surprise that many of us need some fun and positivity in our lives. Runways had fun prints, colours and silhouettes that just evoked the word “joy.” 

The best thing, to me, about the above is that finally, there are plus size options so that we can also wear the trends. And don’t worry, scroll to the bottom of this post where I have shared some great options.
