If you want to show off your figure, picking out form-fitting pieces is the way to go — but just because something fits on the snug side doesn’t mean it’s the most flattering. We actually find certain looser styles to be more confidence-boosting, but you need to know which details to look out for.

You can go for looser dresses which have the right neckline to slim out your overall figure — or have some sort of waist-cinching detail to create a flattering silhouette. The same goes for tops, bottoms and rompers! It takes the right eye to know which loose styles to select for the summer, and we have some expertise in the field. To help you out, we curated a collection of the best pieces for summer which are loose, comfy and can make you look sleek and streamlined. Check them all out below!


1. Whether you want to wear this Treasure & Bond tunic top out or tuck it into your bottoms, it’s a solid basic which you can rely on throughout the season — $55 at Nordstrom!
