Stripe It Up! Stripes For Plus Sizes
Nothing says summer more than stripes, but we think they're awesome any time. Whether you prefer bold, bright alternating colors or more muted stripes, it's a classic look that will never go out of style. The striped promenade top from Kiyonna pictured here is so flattering with its crossover bodice and flowy kimono-style sleeves. We also really love a bold stripe tee under a blazer with jeans for an easy but awesome look. Shop our plus striped tops and more as well as our plus size striped dresses.

The LWD is a Hit for Summer
The Little White Dress has taken over for summer. With the fresh, cool, clean look and feel of white, it's the perfect choice for a summer statement. White is the perfect palette for a tiny bit of an accent color too and it's fun to play around with those pops of color in jewelry, a skinny belt, shoes of course or bags. Whites will complement every skin tone - darker skin tones can wear brighter whites whereas paler skin may look best with soft whites. Shop our selection of little white dresses.
Add a Global Touch with Ikat
The ikat trend came on strong a couple of years ago in home decor as well as fashion and seems to still be quite popular. This special weaving style is common in many parts of the world. While it may be an ancient technique, the colorful prints feel fresh and modern. We love it! Shop our global-inspired separates as well as global print dresses.

Loving These "Mesh Illusion" Tops and Dresses from Torrid
It's all just an illusion – mesh illusion, that is. Loving and lusting over the cute tops and dresses at Torrid using the sheer "mesh illusion." It adds just enough of a sexy, see-through effect.
And we especially love the black polka dot mesh as shown in this cute peplum top with the keyhole back. It somewhat gives the look of a strapless top with the sweetheart neckline, but you still have all the support provided by the mesh straps and back.
Lane Bryant Teases "I'm No Angel"
The new campaign from Lane Bryant looks similar to Dove's "Campaign for Real Beauty". Either way, we have beautiful, curvy women in undies again. But some say the tagline #ImNoAngel takes a jab at Victoria Secret's angels and maybe it does. The commercial, linked here, starts off cheekily saying "You want to meet my girls?" Is that a play on words because the camera then focuses on their bras, and then moves to show the other women. It's clever, for sure! Watch the commercial and don't forget to use the hashtag #ImNoAngel when you share your own sexy photos on social media. (Shop our Lane Bryant selections)
