The Best Plus Size Holiday Outfits

If I’m being completely honest, my holiday season in 2019 will be the most laid back of my life.  Due to being nearly seven months pregnant with twins, there’s no traveling and any holiday activities we do will be SUPER low-key.  We’ll be doing more hot chocolate drinking and holiday movie watching and way less holiday party attending or nights on the town.

In today’s post, I’m sharing holiday outfit inspiration for plus size women, regardless of whether your holiday parties are glam and fabulous or low-key and cozy like mine.

Before we dive into the outfit ideas, let me start with a few “rules” or tips I personally like to live by when picking holiday attire.

Tips For Holiday Outfits:

  1. Find versatile pieces that you won’t just wear once and never use again. Think pieces that you’ll be able to wear styled differently and/or those that you’ll look forward to wearing for years to come.
  2. Spice up any look through accessories, makeup, and layering.
  3. You can never go wrong with a little extra sparkle.

You’ll see that most of the outfits on the list include many pieces that are a regular part of my wardrobe and incorporate one or two more festive details.  This is how I prefer to handle my holiday wardrobe in order to maximize my budget.  I do like to splurge on a special piece here and there like a nice sparkly dress, but for most holiday events I try to spice up pieces I already love and wear (like great jeans, trousers, blazers, etc.)
