Classic looks are classic for a reason: they are timeless and rarely fall out of style. Blue, for instance, is one of those colors. Regardless of the season, there is usually an appropriate use for some form of the shade and it never looks out of place.
The color of the sky and the sea, blue has come to represent depth and stability. From pastels to azure to navy, blue has been a reliable standby that has made a return to the runway and many of our closets this season. Whether it is in solids, florals, stripes, or even more adventurous patterns, blues have popped up in the form of denim, dresses of all occasions, jumpsuits, and much more.
Don’t let us tell you why it’s a great choice for your precious remaining sunny summer days — check out these thirteen plus-size babes who are rocking their summertime blues.
1. Aarti Olivia Dubey (@curvesbecomeher)
Aarti rocks an amazingly cute and versatile coordinating two piece set from SmartGlamour. The great thing about co-ords? You needn’t feel forced to always wear the two pieces together, but when you do, the outfit typically reads more like a dress since it’s a perfect match. Break the two pieces up for versatility and use however they work for your wardrobe.
2. Tessenie Mowatt, Karen Ward, and Kaity Wuebolt (@tesseniemowatt, @curvycdn, and @kmw_plus)
Toronto-based bloggers and fashionistas Tessenie Mowatt, Karen Ward, and Kaity Weston pose in a trio of perfect blue floral bikinis from Ward’s shop, Your Big Sister’s Closet.
3. Tess Holliday (@tessholliday)
Tess channels some serious Dolly vibes with bigger-than-Texas hair and a gorgeous royal blue top. Big, bold, and beautiful… just like the model herself.
4. Nkoyo (@_nkoyo)
Nkoyo rocks a gorgeous pale aqua body con dress that makes her eyes positively glow. Pair this with a denim jacket when the nights get cooler.
5. Alex Michael May (@alexmichaelmay)
Alex shows off a gorgeous blue chambray look in Havana while visiting during a photo shoot. We can’t tell what’s more stunning — the setting or Alex!
6. Maui Bigelow of Phat Girl Fresh (@phatgirlfresh)
Georgia-based fashionista and blogger Maui Bigelow wears an amazing blue ruffled dress. The great thing about this dress is the super “classically feminine” detailing of the ruffle paired with a more gender neutral color like blue. The result is modern and fashion-forward in this gorgeous azure hue.
