Holiday parties are almost here and that means it’s time to shop for those fun and flirty holiday dresses. Plus size clothing for the holidays go far beyond basic black. Even though black plus size dresses are always in fashion and are a safe choice the holidays are a great time to go glam and wear dresses that are a little more festive. Sparkles, shimmer and rich colours are all on trend for plus size holiday fashion this year. Check out some of the hottest trends for plus size party girls this year:


Lace dresses can be fun and flirty or romantic depending on the colour and the length. But lace dresses are always a great choice. They’re perfect for an office cocktail party or a family Christmas party. This year the focus is on romantic feminine cut dresses in both long and short lengths. Vintage style illusion lace dresses with black lace overlaying a nude slip dress are very popular this year too. The vintage inspired style is appropriate for any type of holiday event and will look great in social media photos.


Beaded plus size dresses add just the right amount of sparkle and shimmer for the holidays. Sequin dresses can be too much for a holiday event but dressed that have beautiful beading look sophisticated and elegant while still adding that extra touch of glamor that is what the holidays are all about. Metallic beaded dresses in shades of silver, bronze and copper are the perfect choice for a holiday look that you can wear anywhere.

Deep Colours

Crimson red and other colours associated with the holiday can look costumey or juvenile. This year the trendsetters are choosing holiday dresses in deep hues of burgundy, forest green, navy blue, and amethyst purple. Don’t think you’re limited to just red and green for the holidays! Look for vivid plums, ice blues, and other wintry colours if you want your holiday look to really stand out.

Cold Shoulder Dresses

Another popular holiday trend is cold shoulder tops and dresses. These dresses are not quite off the shoulder and not quite sleeveless. The cut-out shoulder gives you the chance to show off your toned shoulders and upper arms while camouflaging your under arms. They’re also a lot warmer to wear than sleeveless dresses and tops and you won’t need a sweater or a wrap to keep warm. Plus size cold shoulder dresses for the holidays are a great blend of comfort and style.

Metallic Sandals

Metallic sandals paired with holiday dresses and tights have been popping up on all the most fashion forward Instagram feeds for the holiday season. Adding a pop of colour and shine with metallic sandals will elevate any holiday look.
