My last plus size thanksgiving outfits post was so popular that I decided to create some more looks. Much like the last post, these looks are preppy af, but again, I’m in love with them! And I hope you feel inspired for this holiday season. I think these could also be worn for holiday family portraits, casual holiday parties, and Christmas dinners. And a lot of the looks below and those from my last post mix and match pieces, so maybe you can recycle pieces for the various events you will attend this season.
In my last post I asked for feedback about what you would like to see in more plus size thanksgiving outfits. And I got requests for warmer climates and dressier options. Can’t forget about my Southern fashionistas! So I sat down with those requests in mind… But when you see what I came up with, you’ll see I didn’t really fulfill the requests as planned. Sometimes I can’t control the outcome of my creativity. Literally. So, I haven’t really addressed your suggestions yet, but I hear you and I haven’t forgotten. Stand by. UPDATE: You can now find my “Southern Edition” of plus size thanksgiving outfits here.

All of these outfits suggest statement lips because I really think everything becomes more dressed up and more festive with a bright red lip! Go here for tips on choosing the right shade of red lipstick for your skin tone.

Plaid and Sequins. Yasss, queen! I know this seems like an unlikely combo, but I have seen outfits like this circulating on Pinterest over the last couple of years and I really like them. Go here, here, and here to see similar looks. Oh wait, here is one more to check out. You can wear black opaque tights with this look for some leg coverage and added warmth. This is certainly also good for a Christmas day outfit, Christmas party, or even a holiday card photo. Also, because I love mixing prints, I would suggest a leopard clutch instead of black to switch things up and make things a little more casual.

Lately double breasted blazers have been trending and I’ve had all the feels because I love the look, but they would look like shit on me. Although my mom is a firm believer in the worn-open double breasted blazer on her apple shape, it’s not the most flattering for apples and it is horrendous if worn closed on an apple shape. See more about how to dress an apple shape here. Basically, if you have a tummy and/or are wide in your middle, the double straight rows of buttons are just going to accentuate that. So damn sad.
So I literally gasped when I saw this magical “faux-double-breasted” blazer** by City Chic! It has the trendy look of a double breasted blazer with all its buttons, but it is so. much. better. for plus size women! First, it has a much deeper V than the typical double breasted blazer, which is much more flattering as it draws the eye up and makes the waist look smaller. Second, it is cut like a single breasted one-button blazer. Hooray! This cut, even when worn open, creates the illusion of a waist. Plus it is cut away at the hips, so structurally it gives the impression of an hourglass shape. So, if you are interested in trying this trend, this blazer is the way to go.
This look is really simple, but the plaid flats, which come in wide width, are gorgeous! The bright red lips and plaid shoes add a little something to an otherwise classic look. Also the peplum shirt is a nice alternative to a boring button down.
