8 Bright, Plus-Size Picks To Let Your Summer Style Shine

When the conversation of brights comes into play for plus-size women, it often becomes about small bouts of color. We're so often told that we should aim to conceal — both implicitly and explicitly — so the idea of being seen can be daunting. But, color is so expressive and a huge part of my wardrobe. I'm obsessed with yellow, mostly because it looks great with my skin tone, but also because Solange Knowles swears by it. (And, you should do everything that Solange does, right?)
Rather than relegating brights to a great necklace or a pair of eye-catching heels — both of which are welcome in any wardrobe — make color the focus instead. When I toss on a bright pink dress, my personal theme song starts to play in my head, and before I know it, I'm sauntering down the street ready to take on the world — all while looking amazing. Ahead, find eight chic ideas on how to incorporate color into an outfit for work or weekend.
