You Weekly has an affiliate partnership so we may receive compensation for certain links to products and services.

If you want to show off your figure, choosing 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 some looser styles to be more confidence boosting, but you need to know which details to pay attention to.

You can go for loose dresses that have the perfect neckline to slim down your overall figure – or some sort of waist-sinking detail to create a flattering silhouette. Same goes for tops, bottoms and rompers! It takes the right eye to know which loose styles to choose for summer, and we have some expertise in this area. To help you out, we’ve put together a collection of the best clothes for summer that are loose, comfortable and can make you look sleek and streamlined. Check them all out below!
