Another week, another installment of #ThursdayThirteen! In case you missed it last Thursday, I started a new series on the blog where every Thursday I detail 13 pieces of the clothing that seem like great options for concealed carry.
Quick disclaimer: These items are suggestions and it is not guarantee that the listed items will work for you and your CC preferences. But, these are things that I think are worth trying out, or at the very least, worth trying on! :)

Gun Vibes Only in White

Style Me Tactical released clothing this week and I can’t wait to try mine on when it arrives. And, of course, it’s the perfect cut to conceal your firearm. If you feel the white is too sheer you can layer up with a cami underneath, or you can put a jacket on top for additional coverage where needed. It also comes in black!
Long Caftan Dress in Cosmos

Another maxi dress, another leg carry option. This dress comes in a few different colors, so take a look at Rachel Pally if you’re into this cut! Super flattering and flowy for summer, this fabric provides enough movement that you shouldn’t be restricted from drawing your firearm, and light enough that it will breathe through the warmer temps — aka the perfect combo that is surprisingly hard to find.
Drop Shoulder Sleeveless Dress
Rose Pink Challis Goddess Tank

When the warmer temps mean the gradual tan starts to set in, I think this shade of pale pink looks great on everyone. The trapeze cut is playful and relaxed and provides enough movement through the middle to allow for various modes of carry. If you have a longer torso you might want to ensure this is long enough to cover a holster since it’s hard to tell with how the model is posed, but it’s cute enough to be worth trying!

This tee comes in a variety of different colors from Urban. Since it’s so low, this could be an excellent option if paired with a lacey or plain cami underneath (similar to how it’s shown in the picture) for extra concealment. The fabric looks like it might be too clingy without that additional layer, so just keep that in mind when considering adding this to your cart.
Curvy High-Rise Skinny Jeans
Lexi Top & Lexi Shorts
Top: Sabo Skirt, $68 AUD
Shorts: Sabo Skirt, $58 AUD
This one is probably the most outside-the-box option I have on the list, only because I’m operating on a hunch. (Insert operating joke here haha)
This top and shorts set might be the perfect way to pull off the look of a romper while still being able to carry. In the summer I love a good romper - but they’re impossible to carry in because there’s no where to store your firearm that makes sense. (You could use a corset holster or a belly band holster, but how would you draw it? I haven’t figured out a way to make it work.)
SO with that in mind, this drapey, long top when paired with the matching flowy shorts might give you the ability to carry around your middle, while still providing you access to your firearm. It’s just a hunch, but I might just purchase it and try it out.
(Also as a side note, there are a few Australian brands that I shop frequently and while prices are shown in AUD, when it charges your card you are charged in USD so it’s actually cheaper :))

This is a trend I’ve been seeing everywhere: bohemian or silk midi skirts paired with graphic tees. And I’m all about it. This skirt would be great with a thigh holster (I’m on a thigh holster kick right now in case you couldn’t tell! haha) and you could pair any kind of shirt on the top. Style with a mule or a dad sneaker and you are good to go. *Adds to cart
