Have a look at them one-on-one:
That Perfect Embellished Black Dress you Always Longed
Every woman loves that one black Dress that she can carry anywhere in any party or function. It’s time to buy that one special embellished black dress that you always wanted to wear without a fear of looking fat anymore. Try to pick a cocktail length with 3/4th sleeves and lots of sequins on it. Don’t shy away from shimmer for special evenings or you can get one with a little sequin detail on neck and body. Black will make you look elegant and the fitting will keep you comfortable all night. Match it up with strappy sandals that showcase simplicity.
Tip#1: If you want your black dress to be a little more chicky and outgoing, you can pick one with a leather finish. Your black dress can have side figure or applique of leather to make you look elegantly gutsy.
Lace Dress in Jacket
Most curvy women worry about their bust or back size while buying an Evening Dress. But a sheer open jacket with a glittering dress or a jacket with the lace cocktail dress will render an elegant look on you. This will hide all the flaw that you couldn’t show comfortably and will make you look like a party diva. You can get this dress in any pastel or dark royal color without a doubt. You can also carry the dress without a jacket if you want. Slingback pumps will add another feather in this simple-yet-dainty dress.
Tip#2: Jacket dress looks the best in lace. If it is a daily affair, you can wear it with light colors and if it is for an evening, get one in dark shade. This evening dress is timeless for any formal/semi-formal party.
Beaded Illusion Gown (A must, if in grey)
Strut with a galaxy of starry beads on your neck and create an illusion of shape. This sequin dress will create an illusion in the neck from shimmer to shine and also the same is created in sleeves. Get this kind of work in a floor length gown and work it with ankle strap pumps of your choice. We mentioned the color boldly because that’s the “must” you should try for. Get this outfit in grey and no other party girl can beat you that night. The sheer finish of this dress will make you look slimmer, sharper and comfortable.
Tip#3: Shimmer illusion neck doesn’t show the true fat on your body and hides all the flaws. Such a dress is a perfect-go during special events like a wedding or a new year’s ball. We’re sure, you will add your glow to dim lights with this outfit.
Try a High-low Ball Gown Dress in Silk
A high low dress is very on these days. For curvy girls, this kind of asymmetrical outfit suits best as they can afford to show off a little leg to look glamorous. If you like the high low finish of a gown, try these in silk with a ball gown length and cut. For this evening dress, Maroon, Brown, Royal purple, and any dark color will glow your complexion during night events. If it is a date, you can add some pearls in jewelry for a perfectly elegant look. Another thing to complete this look with be a peep-toe pair of pumps.
Tip#4: Being a plus-size woman myself, I always try to divide the whole outfit into two parts to make me look more comfortable in carrying it. I don’t know for fact but two colors of your choice double the confidence in wearing it. Hence, whenever you try an evening dress, use two tones or two kinds of materials in one outfit. Try it, you’ll love it!
Faux Chiffon Wrap Dress in Belt
A chiffon wrap dress in a ruby color that flatters your curves is a must for this season’s parties. Add a gold belt to complete the look of this draped knee-length dress. Don’t forget to wear a heavy gold bracelet with this kaftan looking dress. Chiffon will give your body a peekaboo contrast with a sheer that is comfortable, elegant and fabulous for any formal or semi-formal evening.
Tip#5: Chiffon, georgette or any sheer cloth adds a flared feel in evening gowns/dresses. This lets you feel more elegant and queen-like while walking in an event. This also covers up the body flaws and shows your curves off stylishly.
Lacey or Beaded A-line Boat Neck Dress
An A-line dress with lacey top or beaded off-the-shoulder neck is another choice for all you plus size women. You can choose a silky skirt in the bottom while a lace applique or beaded top is perfect for elegance quo of any evening of yours. Knee length A-line skirt will give you an hour-glass figure look and you can match this up with any kind of shoes of your choice. This kind of dress will let you spend the long evenings comfortably and you can wear this for any occasion, may it be an office party, an evening dinner or dance with your man.
Tip#6: If you are trying any evening dress in color blocks or abstracts prints for an outdoorsy party, try pairing it with boots. Suede brown boots will be the perfect addition to any floor length gown with abstract colors and prints.
Classic Strapless Maxi dress
This kind of maxi dress is a must for any plus-size wardrobe. A classic strapless dress in black, royal blue, maroon or any color of your choice is a fantastic choice for any evening. If you get this one in the pleated bottom, you will see a graph high in elegance. Such a maxi dress cannot be doubted for any wedding dinner, even if it is your own wedding and you want to stay comfortable all evening for the rehearsal dinner. Carry this with some beautiful accessories like gold/silver bangles, strappy sandals, and hairdo with a bun.
Tip#7: Mandarin collar is a bold choice though but for curvy girls, this kind of neck style is a great choice. Try to couture this with any bottom: a fit and flare, A-line, pleated or thigh-high cut.
Jacket with Pant Set
If you are an old Mommy or a working old woman, this kind of evening wear will also look very beautiful and elegant on you. All you have to do is, choose a color wisely with embellished or lacey work of your choice. Pants with loose fit or wraps are also in nowadays. Pair this kind of three-piece suit with designer matching pumps and a watch.
