It may be the beginning of December but it’s not too late to think about what you’ll be wearing to all those office parties, holiday themed shindigs, and of course, your New Year’s Eve get-togethers! Instead of dressing to blend in this holiday season, dress to stand out! With all the gorgeous plus sized holiday fashion that’s trending right now it would be a shame to miss out on any opportunity to wear it. From flowing skirts made of toile to sequins and bright prints, let’s take a look at our top five favorite holiday plus sized fashion trends this season.
Last year we had the tutu but this year, it’s all about the sequins! Incorporate a sequined shift to shine as bright as the holiday lights around you. Try something different but classic – like a luxe sequin and velvet dress which falls right above the knee. This little number by Lane Bryant also features another hot plus size fashion trend for the holidays–-a halter bodice. Flattering for hourglass and straight figures, the halter dress is classic and versatile!
Silver, gold, and copper outfits will let you shine under the mistletoe! If you’re not in the mood to incorporate an entire dress or pant combo in the stunning color, add some funky accessories to make your look stand out. We love this BB Dakota Metallic Jacquard dress for an interesting and chic take on the metallic holiday dress trend.
Body Hugging Fabrics
Another awesome trend are body-hugging fabrics that will show your curves. Neoprene is fast becoming this season’s go-to fabric. Originally used in dive suits, neoprene gives a sleek, clean,
and supportive line to party wear. Try this flattering pick from Tadashi Shoji in a not so traditional but still holiday appropriate blue hue.
Leather is also making a huge reappearance! Real and faux leather in a variety of styles including jackets, pants, and as a cool accent on sweaters and tops has shown up all across plus size runaways this season. Pair a leather a-line skirt, like this one from Lafayette 148, with some
knee-high boots for a sassy and hot look that works for your less formal holiday celebrations.
Of course, classic colors like deep burgundy, navy, and hunter green, haven’t disappeared from the holiday plus size trends. Eveningwear in these colors will kick things up a notch and add a little drama to the crowd. Check out this modest but fun option from ASOS, which provides coverage for upper arms.
Whatever you decide to wear this season, make sure you flaunt your assets and remember to dress to stand out!
