Curvy Chic Outfit of the Day: Cool Summer Layers


, , , , , , , , ,


Dressing cuves in cool layers for Summer is super easy. All you need is a couple of basic pieces made from cool breathable fabrics, a little pattern, light colors and you have a casual, stylish,  comfortable outfit for those hot days that turn into cool nights.



A white, racerback tank, made from cool cotton is perfect for wearing alone or layering under button downs, sweaters or other tanks any time of the year. I purchased this one with the cool burnout pattern on the back from the Gap Outlet for only $6.99.


I purchased this long sleeved sweater made of 90% viscose, 10% silk from Nordstrom Rack. I know you’re thinking, “A sweater in August?” But the cutout pattern and light weight makes this one perfect for layering on cool Summer mornings or nights or for those of us who may or may not be comfortable showing off our arms. It also makes for a great piece to tie around the waist when we want to change up the look.


These cute patterned 4″ shorts from New York & Co have become a staple in my Summer wardrobe. I have them in a few different colors and patterns and I grab them again and again to create cool and easy Summer looks. They are a cotton spandex blend and they flare out at the bottom so they don’t grab around the thighs. This is a great thing for those of us who are a tad bit more blessed in that area. You can wear these comfortably, dress them up or down without worrying about all your fabulous goodies hanging out. BONUS!!


And of course, no Summer is complete without a pair (or 5) of Converse All Stars. These have actually been my go to casual sneaker forever. The great thing about this particular pair, they have elastic on the back so they slip on. Clearly they were thinking of me when they made these babies.

I hope you enjoyed this easy breezy outfit of the day and I hope you will continue to check back often for more Curvy Chic Outfit ideas. Remember, girls with curves can look great and stay cool too.

Take care!
