This useful guide to plus size party outfits for all occasions means you’ll be able to accept every invite this Christmas and make the most of the festive period without breaking the bank and looking and feeling great at each and every one you attend.

Post Work Drinks

You know the feeling, everyone’s getting in the festive mood and wants to celebrate with a few drinks after work, and you’re panicking because you’re not dressed for the occasion. A simple plus size skirt suit or tailored dress is ideal for impromptu post work drinks, it’ll be smart enough for the workplace but stylish enough for drinks. If you don’t feel comfortable in something so fitted then a pair of smart black plus size trousers and a blouse or going out top will also work well.

Office Christmas Party

It’s the biggest event of the work calendar and everyone wants to make an impression. Whether your Christmas celebration is a meal, drinks or a full on party you’ll want to not only look stylish but you’ll also want to be comfortable. There are lots of plus size party dresses around at the moment, don’t be afraid to go all out on the sparkle if it’s a big party or a pair of trousers and an evening top will work for most office events. But remember, you’ll be surrounded by work colleagues so don’t go too sexy or low cut.

Little Black Dress

You can’t go wrong with this classic piece that’s just perfect for the party season. The little black dress will take you everywhere with understated elegance and is so easy to take from day to night with ease. Sometimes less is more and that’s where the little black dress fits in perfectly, wear simply for office festivities and add accessories for sophistication at more glamorous events.

Festive Season Balls

If you’re lucky to be invited to a Christmas ball this year then why not go all out on the glamour for this one off occasion? Full-length party dresses are perfect for this, adorned with jewels, diamantes and sequins for a glamorous look. If you’re looking for a plus size party dress that will dazzle and make you feel confident at the same time then one with a waterfall front or waist ties will flatter your figure. Wear a pretty evening shrug if you get chilly or if you’re conscious about your upper arms.
