OLD Navy has a whole new range of plus size dresses this season, and they’re not just stylish.
A fashion blogger has shared her favorite summer clothing styles from the store, and most of them are under $30.
On her YouTube channel, Jasmine Styles brought viewers into the locker room with her and gave her honest feedback on eight different Old Navy dresses.
The first, pictured above, was a pink, $22 swing maxi dress that the Memphis mom tried on and immediately loved.
“Love the detailing on the dress,” Styles said, turning to show off the bow at the back.
For hot summer days, she particularly liked “the spaghetti straps and the way the back of the dress is done.”
Next, Styles tried on a printed mini dress with puff sleeves and a tie front.
She showed off the belly cutout and handy pockets of the dress, which sells for $30.
“You know I’m in my prime to try this dress on,” Styles said. “It’s hugging in all the right places.”
The length was perfect for dressing up with a wedge heel or a pair of casual sandals, Styles added. “It’s a mini dress that’s not too short,” she said.
The styles then went sleeveless into a cami dress.
The slub-knit dress has subtle tiers for movement and easy, airy straps. The fashionista tried it on in a pale peach color.
“I’m convinced that maxi dresses were made for tall women,” Styles said.
She told viewers about the dress’s built-in bra, which is lightly lined and provides moderate coverage if wearers want to skip their own bra. The dress retails for $28.
“Listen. It’s a vibe,” Styles said as soon as she showed viewers her next pick.
The cream white halter dress, $28, has a ribbed knit for a fitted look and a sexy halter neckline that still offers support.
“I love this dress,” Styles said. “It doesn’t show too much cleavage.”
Her next pick was one of the only dresses over $30 that Styles showed viewers.
The tie-shoulder dress retails for $38, and Styles said the price is worth it.
“This dress is really, really cute,” she said before listing all the positive qualities: the bright print, the flowy and comfortable silhouette and the tassels at the end of the spaghetti straps.
She had only one qualm – he was a bit fat.
“I was on a swing with that,” Styles admitted. The only reason she didn’t swap the XL for a Large was her resistance to returning to the saleroom with the dress. “I would have gone down the size, but I didn’t want to go back and forth,” she said.
“This one’s my favorite,” Styles said, revealing a rib-knit cami dress that retails for $26.
She tried on the sundress in a bright orange color perfect for summer.
“It has the two side slits, which I love,” Styles said.
And the fit was perfect too, even without a bra. “I love how this dress hugs my curves,” she said.
The dress, priced at $23.99, had a denim look that Styles loved.
“You can’t go wrong with jeans anything,” she insisted.
Styles pointed out the lovely details that enhance the perfect sundress, from the flared fabric on the straps to the chunky ruffle at the bottom of the dress.
“For all body types, I think you’ll love these dresses,” Styles said, encouraging other plus-size shoppers to add her to their cart right away.
Her final pick was a classic style, and also the most expensive dress of the bunch at $40.
“I love colorblock colors,” Styles said. “You can also pair this dress with any accessory, shoe, sandal or handbag.”
Like the floral maxi dress, Styles had a warning for other plus-size shoppers: They might want to try a size smaller than usual.
“I definitely could have gone smaller in that dress,” she admitted.
