    Office Star: How to Dress for Your Next Corporate/Holiday Party

    Guest post by Clari Farkash

    With the winter holidays fast approaching, your corporate party calendar will soon be filled with soirée dates and details, and you will be faced with some important decisions on what to don. Unfortunately, the dress code on a celebration invitation can be a bit cryptic. (For example, “festive attire” is not a summons to decorate yourself with more tinsel than the Christmas tree, nor to resurrect that beaded Rudolph sweater that’s been languishing in the attic.) But understanding just what an event’s dress code calls for — and then translating that into something that looks spectacular but not overly sexy on your curvy frame — doesn’t have to take a miracle from Santa. With just a few basic suggestions, you can ensure that your party ensemble fits both the bill and your body. Use this guide to guarantee your holiday style looks merry, bright, and oh-so right.

    14 Party Perfect Plus Size Christmas Dresses With Sleeves

    It’s that time of the year again, which I have to say I truly love! The holidays are coming up and without a doubt you’ve already started thinking of Christmas gift ideas for family and friends, but also about what to wear to any holiday parties that might be happening in the coming weeks.

    The major dilemma I face when deciding what to wear to a Christmas party is this: What can I wear that is stylish and sexy, but still can keep me warm?! Let’s face it, it’s cold outside and not everyone loves to suffer the cold in the name of fashion!

    So what is the compromise? Well, actually there is no compromise because as I’m about to show you today, you can get your hands on a variety of different stylish and flattering plus size party dresses… with sleeves! So you can keep (relatively) warm, and yet still be fashionable at any Christmas party you’re attending this year.

    Style Guide: Winter Fashion for Plus-Size Women

    Guest Post

    Daxon Ladies JacketAs the temperature drops and the cold nights draw in, many of us find ourselves focussing more on protecting ourselves from the elements than on looking good. But there’s no need to spend the next few months trudging around in heavy and unflattering clothing. There are plenty of ladies coats and ladies knitwear items out there that are as stylish as they are warm. Unfortunately, the winter wear on offer in many high street stores can be quite limited – particularly for plus size women who are all too often all but ignored by the major fashion retailers.

    In order to get around this problem, it’s important to show some perseverance. Be aware of exactly what you’re looking for and don’t just settle for the first ladies coat you find in your size. Check out some online catalogue stores, as many of them stock a much wider range, and a few specialise in stylish plus-size clothing, often at more affordable prices than you’d find in-store.
