Don’t wait for the RSVP. It’s never too soon to start thinking about what to wear to your holiday work party, or how to dress for a family get-together or cookie exchange with friends.
Step One: Ask about the dress code. Step Two: Choose from the top trends for plus sizes this holiday season, and show up fashionably late — and looking absolutely beautiful!
HOLIDAY TRENDS FOR PLUS SIZES
No. 1 ANYTHING RED
Red is always right for a holiday party, whether you choose to blend in or stand out. We love the soft drape of an easy knit top, paired with sleek black pants. Remember, if you go for flowy volume on top, balance the look with a slim bottom. For dressier occasions, try a festive red dress for instant elegance!
No. 2 BARING ARMS
Reluctant about showing a little skin? Now’s the time to face your fear. Shoulder- and arm- baring style has gone mainstream, allowing you to look current and elegant with just the right touch of sexy. Look for cold-shoulder styling, arm slits, openwork sleeves, and ballet necklines combined with gorgeous sleeve details.
No. 3 HOLIDAY ROMANCE
Feeling romantic? So are we … as we watch the modern romance trend breathe new life into holiday dressing. Lace, crochet, ruffles, ties and floral prints add a soft touch to traditional holiday styles. And blush and burgundy are deliciously fresh alternatives to shades of red.
No. 4 SOMETHING SPARKLY
Adding sparkle to your closet this time of year is nothing new – unless, of course, it’s blue! And this beautiful cowlneck has all the makings of a party sensation: soft drape, flattering neckline, eye-popping cobalt and a sprinkling of glitter. Another way to add a touch of sparkle? Just add a statement necklace.
No. 5 WIT & WHIMSY
When the party invite calls for casual, that doesn’t mean you should throw on just anything. Keep it festive with critter sweaters, like our skiing penguin or “sitting pretty” owl.Or toss on a sparkling “conversation” top and cable knit sweater scarf. Comfortable just got more clever.
