Happy Holidays! Liz from the blog With Wonder and Whimsy here. As one of Adrianna Papell's influencer stylists, I'm excited to share my favorite plus size gowns and styling tips with all of you!
Our get-togethers will be fewer and farther between this holiday, so take those opportunities to dress up and really go all-out! These smaller, less frequent gatherings should feel all the more special and celebratory, not less so, and nothing says 'celebrate!' like a holiday gown. Let's take a look at my top plus size picks to sleigh this holiday season...
Beaded V-Neck Gown
First up is this Beaded V-Neck Gown in the size 18W that I styled and shot for my own blog. Adrianna Papell has a number of gown offerings in this rich Dusty Emerald. What a stunning choice for the holidays! My favorite features of this gown are the elegant open neckline, how the beading and satin waistband accentuate the waist, and the figure-hugging silhouette.
Art Deco Blouson Beaded Gown
If emerald green is my top color pick for holiday, then mulled wine comes in a tight second. This Art Deco Blouson Beaded Gown offers Gatsby glamour in a festive holiday hue. The blouson silhouette offers a relaxed fit through the top, highlights the waist, and then hugs through the hips before flowing into a full length skirt. This one is made for topping with a faux fur stole, don't you think?!
Flutter One Shoulder Jumpsuit
Snow queen, but make it fashion! This Flutter One Shoulder Jumpsuit offers the elegance of an occasion gown in a more contemporary silhouette. Jumpsuits are effortlessly chic, but this one is truly occasion-worthy thanks to the snowy white colorway and dramatic one shoulder design. I also appreciate that the sweep of fabric falls away from the body in a dramatic flourish. Finish the look with a long statement earring and a platform peep-toe shoe.
Scoopback Sequin Gown
Glitter in gold this holiday season! Metallics are a popular choice for the holidays because they can transform a simple, classic silhouette into a real show-stopper. This Scoopback Sequin Gown offers a sparkling smattering of gold and champagne sequins. Celebrate your curves in this shapely sheath silhouette. Wear your hair up with a simple diamond stud earring, and let the low cut back speak for itself.
Beaded Flutter Sleeve Gown
Forget silver bells. With this dress it's all about silver stars! There's something magic about how the tiny sequin stars twinkle across this Beaded Flutter Sleeve Gown . I love the comfort and ease of a blouson top, and the sheer elbow-length sleeves offer coverage while still feeling ethereal. I'd finish this one with tiny star earrings and a celestial statement barrette.
