What to Wear to a Company Holiday Party: 10 Plus Size Holiday Cocktail Dresses

Trying to figure out what to wear to your holiday company party as a plus size woman can be an interesting challenge. Naturally, there’s always the “little black dress” option, though it’s so predictable and plus size women tend to wear too much black as it is. This event is just begging for you to pick something a little more festive and colorful – after all, it’s a holiday! Think jewel tones like amethyst, emerald, ruby, sapphire, and topaz.

In my own search for the perfect holiday dress for my husband’s company party at a wonderful resort, I found that there are an abundance of wonderful options just waiting to be purchased this year. It seems like everyday the selection at my favorite stores just keeps getting better. Picking just one dress was incredibly hard. Here are some of my favorites with links to the sites they are available on:

In the end, I decided to order the floral jacquard wrap style dress custom sized and mid-calf length from Eshakti.com. I love the red and black combination that is a little bit shimmery metallic without being to glitzy. It’s a dress that I’m sure will be a favorite for years to come. The other great thing about this dress is the pockets that are plenty big to hold your lipstick, id and debit card, and even phone. I’m not a big fan of carrying an evening bag since it’s inevitable you’ll end up leaving it unattended on a table while dancing.

When picking out your holiday dress, be sure to think about what shoes and accessories will work with it. If you’ll be dancing the night away, you’ll want a style that will work with shoes in your closet that are comfortable – there’s nothing worse than wearing new shoes that are killing your feet for dancing. Also keep in mind what kind of wrap or coat will work with it if you’re somewhere cold – some dresses are less than winter coat friendly and you don’t want to be freezing!
