Attending a party this holiday season?  No matter what type of party you’ve been invited to, Kiyonna has something amazing for you to wear! 

So I’m thrilled to have the chance to partner with Kiyonna to put together some plus size holiday party outfits.

In this post, I focus on outfits for cocktail parties, work parties, and house parties. 

But, Kiyonna also has plus size gowns for black tie events!  Like I said, they’ve got you, no matter where you’re headed!

I’m a Fan!

And if you’re a regular reader of this blog, you already know I’m a big fan of Kiyonna!  I feature their dresses in practically all of my party and wedding guest dress “round ups.”

Plus, I posted outfit ideas with some of my favorite pieces from Kiyonna, like these wrap dress looks, this cardigan outfit, and these twist top outfits.  As I’ve said, their styles are so flattering!

For this post I decided to style their best selling Mademoiselle lace dress, their classic “true” wrap dress, and their ultra flattering lace top.

These pieces are gorgeous!  And look at how they can be styled for your upcoming holiday events:

The Cocktail Party

Let’s start with the dressiest look of the three. 

Perfect for the cocktail party, Kiyonna’s classic black lace dress with statement earrings and romantic accessories, like a satin box clutch with crystal and pearl clasp.

Add a strappy sandal and finish the look with a bold red lip.

From Work to Party

Easily go from the office to party-ready with a “true” wrap dress, this one is a favorite!  Start by adding a statement necklace. Then pull classic accessories and strappy sandals from your work tote and you’re ready to take on the night. So easy!

Wrap Dresses: Versatile & Flattering

As I’ve said, wrap dresses are workhorses. 

They can be worn to work and both day and evening events, such as graduations, weddings/baby showers, or dinner parties. 

The wrap dress is an easy choice for a date night.  And can be dressed up with accessories for a wedding.

Aside from just looking classic and polished, they are also very flattering.  

Apples will especially like the tie just under the bust to create that faux waist that I talk about in my Styling Tips for Plus Size Apple Shapes post.

Another reason the Kiyonna wrap dress is a great option is it’s easy to care for.  You can machine wash on the gentle cycle, inside out in cold water.

I also recommend using a laundry bag if you have one.  As I mentioned in a previous post, the tie can get caught in the agitator of the washing machine, but the bag will protect it.  Then just lay flat to dry or line dry.

And because you can get so much use out of them, I recommend investing in a wrap dress that is high quality like this one from Kiyonna.  You will absolutely get a return on your investment and then some.  It is a “true” wrap rather than “faux” wrap dress.

“True” vs “Faux” Wrap Dresses

To clarify, a “true” wrap dress, like this one from Kiyonna, is one in which the tie, neckline, and fit, can be adjusted when the dress is tied closed. 

A “faux” wrap dress looks similar in style but can’t be adjusted because the pieces are sewn together in such a way as to create the illusion of a wrap dress without the adjustability.

Often you will see inexpensive or budget options in the “faux” wrap style.  One of the reasons is that the “faux” wrap dresses cost less to make as they use less fabric and they take less time to sew.  I avoid “faux” wrap dresses whenever possible.
