It’s the most wonderful time of the year! By that, of course, we mean it’s time for plus-size holiday fashion! Want 7 curvy ways to steal the show this holiday season? Well, gone are the days of nothing to wear but boring red and green dresses, probably with a massively huge bow wrapped around our entire body that didn’t even let us sit down to our delicious holiday meal. Holiday fashion options for curves have grown by leaps and bounds from even a few years ago, and below are 7 must-have holiday looks that will take you through every party of the season. Get ready to play with sequins, velvet, lace, metallics, and more! Check out my Batwing Metallic Dress by SHEIN.
Plus Size Holiday Dresses
Who doesn’t love to glide into the room and feel like Cinderella at the ball? Your wish will be granted (no fairy godmother needed) in the Sheath/Column Glittering Plus Size Wedding Guest Prom Dress V Neck Long Sleeve Floor Length Sequined with Sequin 2021 from Light in the Box (currently 50% OFF) or you can don the Kiyonna Riviera Lace Evening Gown (20% off $150 with code JOY20) if you’re not quite ready for red.

Mixing and matching separates are the best budget-friendly way to double your wardrobe. Your plus size holiday look will be effortless with these two looks. For your upper half, I love both simple sequin tops like the Lane Bryant Faux-Wrap Sequin Top (BUY A TOP- BOTTOM & BRA FOR $99) and eye-popping satins like the Jonathan Simkhai Exclusive Satin Tie Front Wrap Top from 11 Honore Both pieces can be paired with either pants or skirts and can be dressed up or down with accessories.
Working the room at a work event? Boss it up with Eloquii’s Double Breasted Sparkle Blazer, paired either with matching Sparkle Wide Leg Trouser for drama or simple black pants or a black skirt for a more understated, sophisticated look. This curvy holiday outfit is a show stopper.
Always find yourself reaching for the same pair of boring black pants? This season, have some fun by experimenting with different colors and fabrics on your lower half.
The taupe metallic Maya Pant from 11 Honore is still an all-purpose neutral while giving you an extra touch of shine or you can try the Polo Ralph Lauren Pleated Sequined Midi Skirt for a bit more pop.
Of course, if you absolutely refuse give up the black pants, you can still give them some holiday flair with Eloquii’s Sequin Bell Bottoms.
Plus Size Pant Suits/Jumpsuits
Need a cross between boss and party girl? Pantsuits are a great choice and can be extra fun around this time, especially Eloquii’s Velvet Jumpsuit or Yoclubwear’s Elegant Deep V-neck Pleated Wide Leg Plus Size Jumpsuit (CODE: YC10 For 1st Order 10% Off).
Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Who would have thought that the ugly sweater your great aunt gave you and your parents forced you to wear when she came over would actually turn into a global fashion trend?! Fact is stranger than fiction, and nowhere is that more clear than in the “ugly Christmas sweater” trend of recent years. People even throw huge parties with prizes for the ugliest, most cringe-worthy sweater. Go figure!
Both the Cutest Ugly Christmas Cardigan from Modcloth (40% Off! Use Code 40GIVE) and the Women’s Santa Unicorn Plus Size Ugly Christmas Sweater from Tipsy Elves are guaranteed prize winners!
Not so long ago, women wouldn’t dream of leaving their houses without a pair of gloves, and the right pair can still take you to the height of elegance, especially the Yandy Extra Long Satin Gloves (; $14.95 for 2 pairs). Wear them alone or with your favorite bangle or diamond bracelets to steal the show.
Let’s face it; no matter how much fun we have at the holiday party, the hands-down best moment of the evening only comes when we shed our fancy outfits and climb into our PJs! Nothing, absolutely nothing, feels better than jammies, and you can keep the party feeling going with holiday pajama sets, nightshirts, or super-soft separates.
Lane Bryant’s Nama Sleigh Long-Sleeve Tee & Legging PJ Set (; BUY 1 GET 1 80% OFF) and Woman Within’s Here’s Some Holiday Spirit sleepshirt (; $35.99 – $59.99 for a 2 pack) are both perfect for settling down to a long winter’s nap.
On a budget, but have a ton of places to go and people to see this season? Rent the Runway (Holiday Party Special: 30% OFF one-time rentals with code: MIDNIGHT) has got you covered with chic curvy outfits for purchases or rent!
