Choosing The Best Evening Dress For Plus Size Glamour
By Chirsty Diaz
With the holidays approaching, you may soon be in need of a glamorous look for those special events and parties. Not too long ago, the only evening dress in plus size was a blousy, dowdy number. We can now rejoice that many options are available, and you can choose a sexy, sophisticated, or glamorous evening dress in plus size.
As you decide your social calendar for the holiday season, you may find yourself in need of a flirty cocktail dress, a ball-gown, or a chic evening suit. How do you go about finding the right style for you? Let's look at the best evening dress in plus size options.
Cocktail dresses can be as short as mid-thigh to as low as ankle skimming. The most flattering hemline that shows off shapely legs hits right about knee length. 1950's influenced styles with beading, lace, and A-line skirts are highly popular and look great on plus size women. Sleeveless dresses can be topped with decorative bolero jackets or cardigans to make a modern, yet classic statement. Add a stylish open toe pump to complete your ensemble.
If you have been invited to a black-tie affair, most likely you will need a floor-length gown. The best styles for plus sizes have clean lines without needless ruffles and bows. Excess details can add weight and look dowdy. Jazz up a simple gown with expressive jewelry or a colorful silk wrap. For footwear, try a strappy evening sandal or the latest trend - satin flats for extra style and comfort.
Maybe, you have a couple of after work parties and need an outfit that is festive but not too dressy. Look for a tailored suit that can carry you from office to cocktail party with ease. Black is back in, thank goodness, and a black, wool crepe pantsuit can be just perfect to transition you from day to evening. Full figures look wonderful in tailored jackets with slim lapels and nipped in waists. Don't worry. You will want to keep the jacket unbuttoned to show off a sexy camisole or silk blouse. Make sure that the pants are tailored but not tapered at the ankle. A chic pantsuit looks great with a high heel or an embellished flat.
Whatever your plans are for the upcoming social season, there is evening attire that will make you glamorous and sophisticated. Full figure women have more evening dress choices than ever before!
