Holiday Party Dressing With Curves

The holiday season is upon us, which calls for flattering party dresses and cute shoes to match.  If you wear a dress size 12 or larger, this task can be daunting.  I’ve found the chicest UK-based online store that makes plus-size dress shopping a cinch and lots of fun!  Marisota has a great selection of dresses for ladies with curves. You can even shop the dresses by “Figure Fixers” to find just the style for you.

What is just as fabulous is their selection of fashionable footwear! Here are a few of my favorite dresses from Marisota, along with some fabulous heels that guarantee you will make a grand entrance at any event.

Best Dress For “Fixing” Arms

Changes By Together Print Dress – The elegant butterfly sleeves help cover any arm flab, while the pretty floral print and deep v-neck draw attention to sexy décolletage and a minimized middle (thanks to the empire waistline and black skirt).

Wear this dress with solid black peep-toe pumps, such as the Ravel Kalista platform pump.

Best Dress For “Fixing” Tummy

Maxi Dress with Pleats – Side pleating at the waist draws the eye to the hip and creates a slim midsection, while the pleating on the right shoulder balances the look and adds interest.

Wear this simple yet elegant red dress with strappy gold or silver-tone metallic heels, such as the Moda in Pelle Raven Ladies Sandals.

Best Dress For “Fixing” Bums

Joanna Hope Angel Sleeve Lace Dress – Got a little more booty than you care to flaunt?  Try wearing a lace dress with a free-flowing skirt with shaping leggings or tights.  When you walk all eyes will be on your great calves and dazzling shoes!

Depending on the hemline length, you can either wear heeled ankle boots for a more edgy look or some closed-toe pumps like the Ravel Halo platform courts to give your bum an extra lift that only high heels can.

My Favorite Evening Gown

Changes by Together Beaded Dress – This figure-skimming strappy dress is dripping with beadwork and sequins, something you can only get away with at this time of year.  The flattering lines and classic sweetheart neckline make it the perfect choice for a glam New Year’s Eve champagne party.

Go all out and pair this dress with equally stunning shoes with metallic accent, such as the Moda in Pelle Jenson Cap toe pumps.

  1. To answer your question Jess, the US does carry similar versions of these shoes. Like the Pelle Moda Flirt Evening Sandal there are other similar versions. Stuart Weitzman makes a shoe similar to the Moda in Pelle Jenson Cap toe pumps called Capsized Pump. Cap toe shoes are super trendy and work with almost every outfit.
