Plus Size Summer Style: 5 Fab Dresses from City Chic

What’s your plus size summer style recipe? Mine is easy: City Chic dresses! I have been obsessed with City Chic ever since I picked up my first piece at my local Nordstrom store a few years ago…and the obsession has grown. Some of my most loved, most worn dresses have been from City Chic. So I thought I’d round up a few of my favorite plus size summer dresses for you here!

HOTNESS! There is no other word for this amazing plus size red lace dress from City Chic. The scarlet lace over a nude base is just fierce! I cannot get over the color, design and price of this dress. It was perfect for Valentine’s Day…but this is a dress that will be perfect for occasions throughout the year. Here’s a direct shoppable* link to this City Chic So Fancy Lace Dress from Nordstrom.

Plus Size City Chic LBD from Gwynnie Bee

In my last post, I confessed that I had already broken my January Gwynnie Bee plus size style resolution to focus on my casual wardrobe, and I reverted back to my love of dresses! When I saw this amazing City Chic Splice Armor Dress LBD in my Gwynnie Bee app, all thoughts of casual tops went out the window. I had to try it!

Black Lace Joggers – The Pants I Never Knew I Needed from

Black Lace Joggers – The Pants I Never Knew I Needed from

OMG, you guys. BLACK LACE JOGGERS. What are jogger pants, you ask? Well, they are pants that have elastic at the ankle and aren’t really a capri…they are meant to resemble jogging pants from the 90s, I think. But I’m totally obsessed with this black lace Roaman’s Lace Joggers that I found at! Paired with a Lace Trim Tank by Denim 24/7 and a Rib Trim Utility Jacket by City Chic — also found on!

City Chic Blue Plus Size Maxi Dress

Summer is hitting its stride here in Chicago, and we’ve had weeks and weeks of super hot temps, which has me trying to wear the lightest and least restrictive clothing I can get my hands on. And that led me to another City Chic dress (see my last post about this cheery yellow sundress here)…this time, I went with a silky smokey blue maxi dress with a racerback knot and slits on the side.
