Plus Size Evening Wear: Do’s and Don’ts

It’s one of those days when you’ve just gotten out of the shower, done your self-care regimen, and now you’re ready to slip into something sexy for a fun night out. But what to wear? Don’t let the indecision ruin your mood – here’s a few do’s and don’ts of plus size evening wear to get you feeling yourself for your night out.

Plus Size Evening Wear Do’s

  • Throw some sequins into the mix. Sequins are always welcome to the party.
  • If you’re feeling bloated, opt for ruching around the waist so the fabric isn’t pulled tight across your torso.
  • Rock a lace bodysuit with high waisted pants for a sexy, femme style.
  • Wear vertical stripes if you’re short. This will elongate your torso and make you look taller.
  • Slip on a plus size satin slip dress to any nighttime shenanigans. Keep it casual with a cropped faux leather jacket.

Plus Size Evening Wear Don’ts

  • Wear clashing sequin pieces or multiple separate sequin pieces, as you will wind up looking like a disco ball. Less is more.
  • Overdo the jewelry if you are wearing sequins, velour, metallic, or velvet.
  • Bust out your new kicks with your evening wear. That should go without saying. Stick to either boots or heels.
  • Wear horizontal stripes if you have a wide waist or hips. Horizontal stripes tend to make you look wider.

J’adore Velour

POV: you’re headed to the local bar with your bestie where you know the hot bartender will be working. Showing up in a cute velour dress is a necessity. They’re sassy, sexy, and chic, not to mention they flatter your curves effortlessly. Hold gazes with hot and mysterious strangers in our Plus Size Shirred Velour Dress – a total heartthrob for stealing hearts across the bar and scribbling sweet nothings on cocktail napkins.

Feeling a little shy? Our Plus Size Sweetheart Velvet Mini Dress will do the flirting for you. Choose from gold or purple and style it with knee-high boots for a cute winter look or strappy heels for more formal vibes. Throw on some gold hoops and grab a matching gold clutch to complete the ‘fit. 

Sequins

You can’t go wrong with sequins. Although they definitely vibe harder on nights out at the club, a cute sequin top or skirt thrown into the mix can make you the centerpiece in a fancy restaurant or cocktail bar. Snap up our Plus Size Sequin Halter Top and style it with some high-waisted black dress pants for a look that owns the room.

Or, switch it up! Rock our Plus Size Sequin Mini Skirt with a cute black crop or black lace bodysuit for another sexy evening ‘fit. Throw on a pair of black knee-high boots and we guarantee you’ll be the last one at the bar because your outfit is too cute to go home. When it comes to nights out on the town, the last thing you want is a stressful rummage through your closet killing the mood before you leave the house. That’s why we’ve curated our Plus + Curve Holiday Party collection available in store or online at FOREVER21.com.
