Three Holiday Looks for Plus Size Women

November 26, 2011

Per the request of several Glamazon Diaries readers, I have put together three stellar looks for plus size women to wear this holiday season.  I listened to your criteria and concerns, one being a moderate heel to allow for comfort while still maintaining high style.  The other was having some color so that the outfits could be festive yet appropriate for both work or going out.

Ladies, just because you are over a size 14 doesn’t mean you have to settle for anything less than the best.  For starters, many brands cater to plus size fashionistas, the most prominent being Lane Bryant, Avenue, Coldwater Creek, Talbots and Torrid.  DKNY also makes some plus size dresses, a bit pricey but worth every penny; as does Target, Walmart and Kmart for the babe on a budget.  Below are three looks that will take you from meetings to martinis this holiday season and beyond.

Always remember to keep it simple when in doubt and keep accessories to a minimum.  Make sure to dress for your figure, meaning if you are top heavy, opt for silhouettes like an empire waist that draw attention away from your tummy.  If you are an hourglass, wear dresses that cinch at the waist to make you look more proportional.
