Plus Size Spring Dresses to Wear with Sneakers
Women in the sneaker game are not just trying to be ‘one of the boys.’ They’re taking sneaker culture and making it their own. The same can be said for plus size women. We are not simply following the trends of our straight size counterparts, we are setting the trends, too.
Gone are the days of wearing heels just to look more aesthetically pleasing. Wearing a flat shoe doesn’t mean you’re lazy; in fact, wearing dresses with sneakers is an aesthetic all it's own. Sneakers can elevate your look (and I’m not just talking platform sneakers).
We are not about to stop you if you want to wear a ball gown with kicks. But for the everyday look, here are eight plus size dresses and the sneakers you can pair them with!
1. As If - Pink Plaid Dress
Grab your butterfly clips, the 90s are back. Whether you grew up in the era or are a 90s baby, there’s no denying that throwback fashion is here to stay.
Channel your inner Cher Horowitz with this pink plaid jumper-style dress. It comes with an attached white tee with lettuce-sleeve trim. Add a choker and pair this with a classic pair of white K-Swiss Heritage.
2. Puff Daddy - Tie Back Puff Sleeve Dress
If you want a puff sleeve dress easy on the drama, this ELOQUII dress is a great option. There's a tie-up back that offers an added design detail. The flounce hem makes it easy breezy to wear.
It comes in three colors into 14-28 including black, pink and orange. Pair the orange dress with the Nike AirMax 2090 in the Infinite Lilac/Sea Glass/Laser Orange/Dark Smoke Grey colorway. Throw on a lilac crossbody bag for a spring-ready look.
3. Lace It UP- Lilac Bodycon Dress
Who says you can't wear sneakers with a body con dress? And laces - those don't just belong on your shoes. This plus size lilac dress is the perfect rule-bending combo.
Channel your inner icon and pair the dress with the Cardi B Club C sneakers. Go monochrome in the crisp purple color way or keep it classic in white.
4. Tee Off - Mesh T-Shirt Dress
Wearing a dress doesn't mean that your look can be casual. An oversized t-shirt dress is still a dress after all. Count on ASOS to have your covered with an elevated t-shirt dress. This one features a curved hem and a mesh neckline.
A black t-shirt dress can go with any sneaker with ease but why not go a little wild? Give them total S8ter Boi vibes in these New Balance All Coasts 210 sneakers. The fresh foam insert helps your feet stay comfy and the cheetah print pattern keeps it cute.
5. Cottagecore Cutie - Gingham Swing Dress
This plus size gingham dress is giving cottagecore vibes in the best possible way. The swing cut keeps it breezy for warmer weather wear while the self-tie shoulder straps make this work for a variety of heights.
A white sneaker is a Spring staple and this flatform features daisy details that add that extra bit of whimsy. The padded tongue and cuff makes these comfy to wear as you frolic through the grass on a picnic day date. Add a wicker purse to complete the look.
6. Ready and Ruched - Mesh Floral Bodycon Dress
Florals are not groundbreaking for Spring but a mesh floral bodycon plus size dress with a ruched side is a mood for every season. The print says '60s vibes but the cut is totally 2021.
The Nike Blazer Mid is a Thick Laces fave and for good reason. It's a throwback style with a modern edge. Want to highlight the lime green in the dress? Just pair it with the lime green swoosh!
7. All Washed Up - Acid Wash Skater Dress
Acid wash is not stuck in the 80s anymore. This comfy knit skater dress features an acid wash pattern and the soft fabric feels like a warm hug against the body.
The earth tones in these Marble Custom Canvas Chuck Taylors pair well with the grey of the dress. The platform gives you a bit of lift. Add a light wash jean jacket and you're festival ready.
8. Blazin' Up - Orange Plus Size Blazer Dress
A blazer with sneakers is not a trend reserved only for men wanting to make a statement on the red carpet. This oversized plus size blazer dress is made from a lightweight fabric. The fabric combined with the orange hue make it perfect for Spring.
A bold dress needs a bold sneaker. Enter the elevated version of the Adidas Superstar, The Superstar Bold. The high-gloss patent adds a touch of glamour while the platform gives you a bit of height without having to wear heels. Add a gold chain belt and a black shades to complete the look.
This season, you don't have to trade your sneakers for heels to sport your Spring-ready dresses. Whether you go platform or skater shoe, there's a dress fit for every sneaker if you have the confidence to wear it!
