For some, coffee isn’t just a choice, but a lifestyle! Having a gift guide for the coffee lover in your life is a no-brainer for anyone shopping this year. Stay at home parents, those of us working from home, and our wonderful essential workers alike, there’s someone in your life who’s a secret (or not so secret) coffee fiend.
It’s that time of year for galas and holiday parties! Finally, we can break out the plus size evening wear and shine! Well, as usual, TCF has all the style ideas to make you feel amazingly chic and trendy! From evening gowns, sequin pants, and even slick tuxedo suits, whatever your style and preference, we have a few ideas that will get your wheels spinning!
This year, the seasonal color palette for plus size evening wear is still in effect – with your deep greens, holiday reds, dark blues, shimmering golds, and of course anything with sequins. Velvet, satin, and organza are always winning fabrics when picking out the perfect ensemble for a special occasion.
Accompanying your perfect gala or holiday party look, sleek hairstyles such as long hair perfectly combed back or simple slick ponytails and buns draw more attention to your beautiful face and your evening wear statement. Curly hair looks to offer a more fun approach to a holiday party look, especially with fun accessories that can be the icing on the cake when your evening wear is simple.
So, let’s get into it!
Plus Size Evening Wear Ideas You Will Love!
As The Curvy Fashionista editors, we write about stuff we love, and we think you’ll like too. We often have affiliate partnerships, so we may get a share of the revenue from your purchase.
The “go-to” colors for holiday evening wear will always be green, red, blue, and shimmering gold! But you don’t have to step out feeling like a Christmas tree! Plus size designers and retailers have created stunning looks just for us – highlighting our curves!
With belted options, asymmetrical silhouettes wrapped bodices, and slits that show an elongated leg, we have wonderfully stylish options to make us feel like the “queen of the ball” – sexy and chic.
Plus Size Evening Wear: Floor Length Gowns
Floor-length gowns will always be the staple of elegance. Whether mermaid, trumpet, or A-line styles, the longer, the better! Trains are always a hit too, at any gala or special occasion.
Plus Size Evening Wear:Black Elegance
Black is always a safe and elegant choice when it comes to evening wear. Whether it is a black gown or tuxedo suit, black can make anyone look expensive and very fashion-forward. Black satin, suede, or even lace seem to make any individual appear more dramatic.
Plus Size Evening Wear:Traditional vs Non-Traditional
Sometimes, you may not feel like wearing a “gown” and may want to rock pants or even a tuxedo suit. For all of my Curvy Fashionistas that prefer pants over a flared dress, we definitely have some amazing ideas for you! I am all about the elegant “dandy” look or a sequin pants with a tuxedo jacket over a skirt or dress, depending on the “feel” of the night, the event, and most importantly, how I feel!
Plus Size designers are becoming more and more inclusive and giving us options. Just like many other looks, we have to “put together”, creating an elegant non-traditional eveningwear ensemble may take a little effort. However, thanks to retailers and designers such as Bindle & Keep, they have custom options that will cater to our every style need!
Plus Size Evening Wear: Fancy, But Not A Dress
What if you want to be a little “shimmery”, without the gown? There are lots of options this year! Look for sparkling jumpsuits, chic pantsuits, and separates!
