Hey big girl, your Christmas can automatically become a lot more stylish and it starts by not reaching out for those overworn sweatpants and a loose tee. We have to assume that you have plans for Christmas and it doesn’t matter whether these plans are intimate dates or family get-togethers, what’s important is that you are stylish at every turn. Plus size outfit ideas.
As a curvy fashionista, it’s sometimes hard to see the style choices you have. The festivities should be a time when you take some risk and showcase your personal style in all its glory as there are no office dress codes to worry about. The plus-size fashion industry is moving in a positive direction and so should you! They are more stylish options than ever for full-figured ladies but there’s still a lot left to be desired in the realm of plus-size fashion, which is why we thought we’d help with a roundup of eight super stylish plus size outfit ideas you can rock this holiday season.
Check out 8 super stylish plus size outfit ideas for the curvy woman…
#1. A black ensemble
Whether you choose the famed little black dress, or you opt for a stylish blouse and skirt/pants, an all-black ensemble is something to try. This is especially right if you have an engagement with a semi-formal fashion code.
You can add a pop of color to this look with a jacket, or accessories like shoes, bags, and scarves. Otherwise, dance to the shimmer drum like Kristine Thompson has rightly done below.
#2. Solid colors are your friend
An outfit comprising solid colors is always going to be a hit with you. So, rather than drown in patterns and prints, stick to a look of solid colors as they help to play up your figure.
However, that’s not to say you can’t win a patterned look, by all means, no! This is just to enlighten you that single-tone will never do you wrong. Think green, reds, blues, and like Kelly Augustine, white.
#3. Incorporate color
No one likes a boring look, and colors are a great way to add some fun to your ensemble. Whether you choose a bright color watered down by a darker shade, or you pair two tones of bold colors like white and red together, the result can easily be the same.
The key to hitting this spot on is to use the brighter color to play up a certain part of your body while the darker tone plays down the other part. For example, an orange or yellow skirt can be used to play up your hips, while a black blouse keeps your top subtle.
#4. Monochrome is a way of life
Monochrome surely makes the first page of the fashion rule book. This is because they flatter every body shape and size. Whether you’re a size 8 or 16, tall or petite, an ensemble of hues of a single shade is a must-try, especially when you choose earth tones.
Begin by deciding the tone you want (for example, nude, black, or blue), then incorporate pieces of the same color but a different shade into the look. Monochrome always commands a classy aura and makes you stand out in a good way.
#5. Be bold and daring
As a plus-sized woman, it’s easy to be tempted into hiding under layers of clothing. Maybe you think sexy isn’t something you can explore, or a daring outfit will look terrible on you, but nothing can be farther from the truth.
Your body is bold and beautiful and it’s only fitting to try out some plus size outfit ideas that communicate this. Of course, we’re by no means suggesting going out naked, but you can tastefully go sexy in daring fits.
#6. Slay in denim
Yes, we know that denim can seem like nothing special, and it isn’t something you expect to slay during Christmas but you’ll be in for a surprise. If you’re going casual this Christmas weekend, there are ways to up the ante in denim. Plus, denim is stunning on any body size, however, the most important factor is to find the right fit.
Right-fitting denim pants will sit comfortably without being too tight or too loose. If you can’t breathe in it, it’s too tight. On the other hand, if you seem to be swimming in it, it’s too loose. Once you get the right fit, pair it with a chic blouse or edgy jacket for maximum slay!
#7. Fancy pants are welcome
Another way to incorporate an air of fun into your outfit is with fancy pants. These are pants that have something interesting going on with them like high-waisted drawstrings. It’s a good idea to get the pants in a neutral solid color like black, that way you can work it in different ways.
#8. Let your shoulders speak
There’s something delightfully sexy about flaunting your shoulders. If you’re still uneasy about going all-out sexy (as advised above), then test the waters with an off-the-shoulder outfit. This can either be a dress or a blouse. With the case of the latter, pair with neutral-toned bottoms to keep attention on your shoulders.
