Summer Style Guide: Plus-Size Outfits for Every Occasion

Summer is here, and that means it's time for sunshine, outdoor fun, and plenty of social events! At Love Marlow, we believe every woman deserves to feel confident and stylish, no matter her size. We’ve curated a collection of gorgeous plus-size outfits perfect for all your summer activities. Let’s explore some of the season’s most popular events and what you can wear to shine at each one.

Summer Concerts

Whether you’re rocking out at a music festival or enjoying a symphony under the stars, comfort and style are key. Opt for a flowy maxi dress with a fun print or a pair of high-waisted shorts with a statement top. Snag a retro-style tee or your favorite v-neck to pair with denim flares, capris, or shorts depending on the weather. Don’t forget a lightweight denim jacket for those cooler evening breezes.

Pool Party

Make a splash with a chic swimsuit that accentuates your curves. Pair it with a vibrant cover-up, such as a breezy kaftan or a stylish sarong. A wide-brimmed hat and oversized sunglasses will complete your glamorous poolside look.

Backyard BBQ

Casual yet cute is the way to go for a backyard barbecue. Choose a pair of comfortable capri pants or a knee-length skirt with a bright, floral blouse. Add some wedge sandals and a straw hat to keep it effortlessly stylish. Or, go classic Americana with red, white, and blue.

County Fair

The county fair is all about fun, so embrace playful patterns and comfortable fabrics. A midi dress with a cinched waist can be both flattering and functional. Pair it with comfortable flats or sandals and a crossbody bag to keep your hands free for all the fair goodies. 

The Cabin

For a weekend at the cabin, think cozy yet fashionable. A pair of stretchy leggings with a long, tunic-style top is perfect for relaxing by the fire or exploring the woods. Layer with a soft cardigan and bring along a pair of slip-on sneakers for casual comfort.

Road Trip

Long hours in the car call for breathable fabrics and flexible fits. Perhaps a loose romper or cozy yoga pants. A pair of joggers or relaxed jeans with a soft tee is ideal. Throw on a lightweight hoodie for added comfort, and don’t forget your stylish sunglasses for those sunny stretches of highway.

Sporting Event

Cheer on your favorite team in style! A pair of biker shorts with a team-colored tank top or tee is both spirited and comfortable. Add a baseball cap and comfy sneakers to complete your sporty look.

Farmer’s Market

A flowy sundress with pockets is perfect for a morning at the farmer’s market. It’s easy to move in and keeps you cool while you browse the stalls. Pair it with flat sandals and a large tote bag to carry all your fresh finds.


For a summer wedding, go for elegance with a twist. A dress in a bright color or pastel hue can be both flattering and appropriate. Opt for a fit-and-flare style to accentuate your waist and pair it with comfortable yet stylish block heels.

Beach Day

A beach cover-up that doubles as a dress is perfect for a day in the sun. Choose a lightweight, breathable fabric that’s easy to slip on over your swimsuit. Pair with flip-flops and a large beach tote to carry all your essentials.

Outdoor Brunch

Enjoying a brunch on a sunny patio? Go for a chic jumpsuit in a bright color or fun print. It’s an easy, one-piece outfit that looks put-together without much effort. Add some espadrilles and statement earrings for a touch of glamour.

Picnic in the Park

A casual, tiered midi dress with a cinched waist is perfect for a laid-back picnic. It’s comfortable for sitting on the ground and stylish enough for any impromptu photos. Pair it with flat sandals and a wide-brimmed hat for a relaxed yet polished look.
