To ensure we all look our absolute best for the Christmas season, I’ve gathered 14 plus-size Christmas outfit ideas.

1. Plus-size Christmas party outfit ideas

Speaking of the Christmas party look with your friends, it’s time to bring your A-game, simply because … who doesn’t?!

For a show-stopping festive look, layer up the oh-so-festive velvet blazer set and black mesh top to feel the best for this merry season.

Together with the sleek pointy-toe sequin pumps, this look just screams “I care about my Christmas gift but also – FASHION”.

Alternatively, an easy-to-wear jumpsuit is my forever love.

Throw on a flattering one-shoulder wine-red jumpsuit and pointy-toe boots and you just look so effortlessly chic.


The truth is, we are all perfect imperfections.

You want to learn these outfit hacks ONLY if you feel like it but are not pressured by others. Remember, we never have the need to “fix” our bodies!

You don’t have to be pretty like HER, you can be pretty like YOU.

And believe it or not, there’s still NOT ENOUGH plus-size content around Pinterest and other places on the internet …at all.

So ladies, before reading the tips, please help pin the pin below & support plus-size ladies ♥!

2. Cute Christmas jumper for a Casual Christmas

When it comes to cute and causal Christmas outfit ideas, how can we not talk about the Christmas jumper?

Sometimes a festive sweater is what you need for iconic family Christmas card pictures.

If you want to balance up the look with a dash of cool girl vibes, team it with a side slit faux leather skirt and combat boots just work wonders.

3. Plus size ugly Christmas sweater ideas

Is that just me but it drives me crazy when people show up in a super cute jumper for the ugly Christmas sweater party!

A Fendi monochrome sweater? Are you really? Trust me, you don’t want to be that gal.

Below is the LEGIT ugly Christmas sweater that makes you feel fun and gaudy!

4. Christmas poncho for plus-size gals

Is a poncho flattering for plus size? YES. Not only does it give out a billowy silhouette, it just makes your legs look slimmer by comparison.

I love wearing the poncho with the front open up so it can show my waist area and knee-high boots for better body proportion!

5. Get dressy with classic festive patterns

Can you wear a Christmas pattern in a classy way? Sure thing! I’d say keep it with classic hues.

To put your red plaid skirt in the spotlight, team it with the black beret and monotone double-breasted blazer just look absolutely tasteful and elegant.

And if you want to maximize the slimming effect, go fully monochrome.

Not only does it look dressy and chic, but putting yourself in a similar color scheme just makes your figure look united and thus, slimmer visually.

To add an extra pop of fun, cute red shoes can always brighten up the look!

6. Velvet dress as the Christmas eve outfit ideas

When it comes to a “Go big or go home” look, velvet is your best bet for sure.

There’re tons of velvet dresses out there, but seriously, this one just can’t be any more forgiving.

Featuring the inverted V hemline, it just draws your eyes vertically and elongates your legs in the best way. Together with a nice pair of sequin pumps, this festive look is to die for.

7. All go in with a sequin dress for the Christmas party

The iconic dress for taking Christmas photos? What about an irresistible sequin dress that is the true festive vibes booster for Christmas time?

For Christmas parties, I’d say go all in with the sequin dress and velvet pumps. To look put together, always match your bag and shoes in similar hues so you won’t look too busy with all kinds of colors.

Seriously, if you aren’t wearing this for Christmas time, when?

Don’t forget to take a ton of Instagram shots that night though.

8. Red Biker jackets for festive Xmas vibes

What to wear for a Christmas dinner party without sacrificing your edgy style?

You will need a black biker jacket to boost your boss lady vibes.

Instead of the normal cropped jacket, I’ll always choose the one with a waterfall design so it helps draw our eyes vertically and makes us look taller!

To give this look a fresh update, well, perhaps it’s time to try on a red biker jacket!


9. A statement coat for Christmas day

For Christmas Eve outerwear ideas, you’ll need a statement coat. A bow Plaid Dress and coat set with Mary Jane heels?

Now THAT’s the effort I want for a Christmas outfit.

Seriously ladies, don’t settle for the boring solid coat that screams “Average” for the big day, play with all kinds of patterns and cuttings – you’re bound to feel fabulous for those Christmas photos.

10. Spice up your Christmas party look with beret hats

As you can tell, I LOVE beret hats. Why? Because this is the easiest hack to dress up the look.

Even if you are opting for a casual Christmas outfit, throw on a lovely beret cap and people will think you’ve given thought to your look.

That said, if you want your face to look smaller and slimmer, I’d recommend wearing it on the side as it can add some height to your head.

11. Handy Christmas outfits for mothers

For all the gorgeous moms out there, I feel ya.

When you are busy preparing the Christmas feast and taking care of the kids, you just want to wear something practical for Christmas.

I’d say the puffer vest is a surprisingly good choice!

Go for a shimmering champagne gold puffer vest with faux leather trim on the neck area just look super cute and handy.

You have no problem wearing a cross-body bag or a shoulder bag with that look.

Easy piecey!

This is so random… BUT

hey ladies, why not quickly do an affirmation and feel instantly better?

This new year, I’m trying not only to share fashion tips but come up with ways to instill body positivity in all women who are reading my articles – aka YOU!

Instead of just reading it, say it loud or murmur the quotes (if you are in public) to maximize the effect.

Ready? Here we go.

I love my body. She is my forever home and sanctuary.

Sassy isn’t a shape, it’s an attitude.

Work out because I love my body – not because I hate it.

I can love myself and change my body at the same time. No guilt about that.

It is completely normal to have tummy rolls. I come to realize that social media isn’t showing the reality… at all.

My happiest moments in life had nothing to do with the way my body looked.

I don’t have to be pretty like her, I can be pretty like …ME.

I AM perfect imperfection.

What are your thoughts on that? I hope that makes you feel better (as you deserved).

Please help me pass the body positivity message in your community. #womenhelpwomen
