We’re highlighting the following seven trendy plus size clothing fashion and styling for you to mix and match as you see fit to overhaul your wardrobe.

1. Go Boho
The summer season in Australia is the perfect time for light fabrics, striking patterns, bold silhouettes, and accentuated colours. This style perfectly complements both the figure and the hot weather.
For styling tips, pair a flared midi dress with some strappy sandals for a summer get together.
If keeping it casual, try a bold print prairie tunic or even an embroidered blouse with ripped boyfriend jeans and a wedged heel. For the beach, get yourself a boho print kimono to wear over your bathers and style with a long hanging necklace.
Come summer you’re good to go with these simple yet super chic boho looks!
2. Streetwear Statement
The roots of the streetwear style started in the late ’80s and have only grown in popularity over the years. Worn by celebrities, fashion bloggers and social media influencers alike, streetwear has now become the go-to look for a casual outing.
The reason why the streetwear clothing style is so popular is that not only it’s on-trend but comfy to wear.
From coffee dates with friends to casual outdoor business meetings, errand runnings or even late-night parties- your summer fashion gig won’t be complete without top-drawer plus size summer streetwear.
Crop tops with contrastive cargo pants or high waisted biker shorts- you can pair up sweat proof, breathable and low cut sports outfits as your ultimate streetwear apparels in summer.
3. Flaunt with Floral
Floral clothing has been dominating the fashion so long now; we say you might as well embrace the timeless classic.
The perfect piece for your summer wardrobe is a floral midi dress or a sundress for those hotter days.
If you’re looking for something different, why not try a floral wrap dress for their universally flattering style, or even pair your floral shirts or skirts with plain/ neutral pieces to really make a statement for the season.
4. Retro Rewind
From the A-line dresses, skirts and silhouettes of the early ’50s, to the layering and flashy styles of the late `90s there’s so much to choose from when it comes to the retro style. By blending striking designs with timeless classics, there’s something for everyone when to comes to going retro.
Trending retro staples include, summer-ready prairie peasant dresses, a-line or full draped skirts, flared jeans, cut off shorts, rompers and more!
With so many eras to mix and match from, it’s easy to let your own personal taste and touch shine through!
5. Go Bold
This December, get ready to make an impression with bold patterns and vivid colours to bring in the season. Use unique prints, striking asymmetrical designs and contrasting colours to show off your figure.
Summer is the perfect time to experiment with bolder styles with more colours and patterns readily available.
We’d suggest pairing your new statement piece with cuffed jeans if you’ve grabbed a new top, or a wide belt to break up the patterns. The same belt can also be used to create a waist when wearing colourful and patterned maxi dresses and tunics.
6. Prairie Chic Style
Continuing from our retro rewind, we wanted to highlight the chic prairie style! With their romantic and feminine vibes makes these pieces perfect for the summertime. We suggest earthly and soft colours of this light-weight, super breathable piece.
For after parties or date nights, we recommend pairing this style with lace-up sandals and saddlebags for an instant graceful and sophisticated look.
7. Tunic Tops & Camis
Tunic tops have always been a bit of a hot topic when it comes to a summer staple piece. They’re comfy, light and can be paired with the accessories to elevate your casual summer look to a stunning outfit for a night on the town.
With so many different ways to dress a tunic top, this is our pick for a must-own item this summer.
Experiment with bold prints, or keep it neutral with dark greens and whites; however, you wear this versatile item you’ll be instantly ready for whatever the day has in store.
