Lasr week i posted my first ‘ Summer Outfit ‘ Of ” Summer ” on Instagram. The good weather 100% helps my mood and head out. Putting on bright, light clothes and feeling that sun is an instant boost. My Summer wardrobe always starts with planning and lists from like January. Making wishlists of pieces i want this year or things i wish i had last season. Shorts make that list each year but can be notoriously hard to wear if you are bigger. I adore the look of them though so have in recent years looked for styles to suit me best. Skorts are the answer for me i feel. Best of both worlds and no fears about flashing the kninners. The red pair i wore was from Boohoo were extremely affordable. I jumped on them because i knew they would fly out and sadly they have. I still don’t know if they are the most ‘flattering’ on me but that is a debate for another time. Should things be flattering or should they just be worn? I put it down to my proportions being so different that i dont think bottoms will ever be perfectly fitted for me unless they were tailored to my measurements. Look they did the job and i liked the frilly business. Red is my jam so how bad. There was some interest in the style when i posted the look so i said i would get some other options to shop in plus size skorts quickly.
Plus Size Skorts
You may have seen that i tried to tackle this issue last Summer in a collaboration with Simply Be. I picked topics to cheat your way through Summer dressing for curvy girls. Shorts where one of the pieces and i found lots of options that worked. You can find that post here if you fancy a read. So yes i have opted for skorts as apposed to shorts as i feel they look and sit better. The skirted part sits over giving the illusion of more of a skirt in the front and shorts in the back. Some style have a bit of both, like the red pair i’m wearing, where you can see the longer part of the shorts while the skirted piece sits nicely concealing my ‘problem area’. This in turn gives more confidence in my choice of outfit and i still get to wear shorts. Like i said the pair in question did sell out but i will link some other options below to shop and maybe try out this Summer.
