A few months ago I went on a vacation for my birthday and one of the stops was Old Town Temecula that I highlighted in My Journey into 40 post. While walking wood planked sidewalks, I stopped in a small clothing boutique called Shop Girl because I spotted a super cute top from the door. I could tell right away that this was not a destination for a plus size girl like myself to find clothes, but I really wanted to try this seersucker top.
I am so glad I did because I am in love with it. Because it has only spaghetti straps and has an extremely loose trapeze fit, I was able to make it work for me. I have actually never tried anything on in this silhouette ever before, so I was pleasantly surprised. For me, it is almost like a dress in top form! I love how it billows over my slim fitting white denim. The addition of the cropped denim jacket makes it flounce even more, especially in the back.
There were several qualities that attracted me to it in the first place. The number one reason was the fabric. The light blue and white stripes that are iconic in seersucker give that nostalgic feeling to summer. It spoke to my inner vintage diva. Second was the crochet detail at the neckline, and third was the construction with the stripes going different directions and raw edge seams.
Here are a few plus size seersucker items that I love.
