6 Plus-Size Christmas Outfits

If you’re like us at Perfectly Priscilla, you love the holiday season and want everything to be just right, including your outfits! A big part about celebrating this joyous season is wearing cheery attire to show your holiday spirit. These six plus-size Christmas outfit ideas will help you do just that.

Casually Festive

Our casually festive look is intended for any non-formal holiday event on your calendar this year. For a festive, yet casual plus-size Christmas outfit, try pairing a simple sweater or long-sleeve tunic with a statement skirt. We love the look of a satin or sequined midi skirt with solid tights and a basic top. You might also go for a fun tunic or long-sleeve top with jeans or leggings. The casually festive look is all about mixing simple wardrobe staples with bold, holiday pieces.

The black No Brainer Lace Tunic from Perfectly Priscilla’s winter line is one of our favorites when it comes to plus-size Christmas clothes. Pair this top with jeans or leggings and finish the ensemble with a sparkly scarf, some statement earrings, and a red lip color. We carry lots of flattering plus-size jeans and leggings perfect for this holiday look.

Glammed-Up Gal

This look is for curvy gals who have some serious celebrating to do this Christmas season. If you’ve got an event coming up this Christmas that you need to be a little more dressed up for, kick things up a notch with a glammed-up ensemble. Skip the leggings or jeans this time and consider a skirt or dress. At Perfectly Priscilla, we’ve got tons of plus-size Christmas dresses and New Year’s Eve Dresses to choose from in all cuts and styles. Whether you prefer maxi, wrap, midi, or shift dresses, we’ve got you covered.

A couple of our favorites this season are the burgundy sequined Spotlight’s On Me Dress and the sparkly black Right On Time Cold Shoulder Dress. In our opinion, the best plus-size Christmas clothes are shimmery and eye-catching, and these dresses are both. Depending on where you live, the temperatures might get pretty chilly in December, so consider wearing tights and a long winter coat. Finish the outfit with simple heels or ankle booties. For a little extra glitz and glam, paint your nails in a glittery shade or try shimmery eyeshadow and a sparkly lip color.

Skirt & Sweater Holiday Classic

One of our favorite plus-size Christmas outfit ideas is a seasonal skirt and sweater combo that’s all things classic for the holidays. This look is the perfect balance between formal and casual and can be worn to virtually any event this season. Whether you’re heading to a friend’s house for dinner, hosting a party at home, going out on the town, or even just heading to work, this timeless ensemble will make any occasion feel extra special. Go for either a statement sweater with a simple skirt or a plain sweater with a textured or patterned skit.

When it comes to plus-size Christmas outfits for women, we adore the All My Life Plaid Sweater paired with a basic black skirt. The soft material will keep you cozy no matter where you’re going, and the hem tie detail is the perfect amount of trendy. The heather gray Great Timing Sweater is also an excellent piece if you’re considering what plus-size Christmas clothes to add to your wardrobe. It can be worn with a printed or bold-colored skirt. To complete the skirt and sweater holiday classic outfit, try over-the-knee boots, opaque tights, a long trench coat, and a simple makeup look. We totally adore the black Don’t Rush Over-The-Knee Boots and the Can’t Get Enough Over-The-Knee Boots in taupe for this plus-size Christmas outfit or it makes a perfect secret santa gift idea for her.

December Jeans

This go-to plus-size holiday outfit is great for wearing around the house, out with friends, or to any other casual event on your holiday calendar. Just because it’s Christmas, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear jeans. At Perfectly Priscilla, we love jeans for every season of the year. You can wear denim and still look semi-formal and festive as long as you pair it with other plus-size Christmas clothes. Jeans are flattering on every figure and create a classic, on-trend holiday look.

Start with your favorite pair of jeans and pair with a winter sweater or plus-size tunic. To stay warm, throw a long wool jacket over this outfit and complete the ensemble with a seasonal scarf, flats, and some fun costume jewelry. The best scarves to pair with jeans include our Gets Me Going Plaid Scarf and the No Other Way Cheetah-Print Scarf. For flats, we adore the Make It Last Leopard-Print Flats or the taupe Make It Sweet Flats.

Holiday Throwback

The holiday season is all about traditions and commemorating about old times which makes it a perfect opportunity to have some fun with a vintage look. Perfectly Priscilla’s winter line has lots of throwback-inspired pieces that make this one of the easiest plus-size Christmas outfit ideas to throw together.

Our black and white Pull Me Closer Polka Dot Dress gives off a flirty 1950s vibe and the red and green Turning The Page Plaid Poncho creates an old-fashioned holiday feel with a gold button detail. For a ‘70s plus-size Christmas look, try our flowy Make Him Wait Print Cardigan. Wear a vintage-style dress with solid tights or leggings and boots. Our suede Long Gone Knee Boots come in a rich chestnut hue that’s perfect for this vintage holiday ensemble. Finish off this festive plus-size Christmas outfit with a beaded necklace, tassel earrings, and a classic trench coat. At Perfectly Priscilla, we have plenty of vintage-inspired necklaces and earrings to choose from including the New Limits Necklace and the Swept Away Earrings.

Comfy Christmas

If you’ve got a casual holiday get-together coming up or if your family’s dress code is a bit more laid-back, a comfy Christmas look is just the thing for you. This is one of our favorite plus-size Christmas outfit ideas because you can wear leggings, jeans, basic tops, and even athleisure wear. What articles of clothing are you most comfortable in? Think of your favorite comfy pieces and start creating an ensemble from there. Maybe you love soft, wear-anywhere leggings or have a favorite pair of jeans that hug your curves in just the right way. Or perhaps it’s a flowy winter tunic or cozy knit sweater.

Our all-time favorite comfy, cozy plus-size Christmas clothes from Perfectly Priscilla include the soft and flowy Talk To You Soon Cardigan in hunter green, the Christmas Is Calling Plaid Leggings, and the Deer In The Headlights Graphic Tee. Each of these items is cheery, laid-back, and all things festive. We also love the look of layers during the holiday season because they’re a great way to stay warm and on-trend while still offering total comfort. The best plus-size layering pieces from our winter line include the So Very Lux Wide Strap Cami, the oatmeal knit Pass It Along Top, the A Sure Thing Black Cardigan, and the Winter Is Coming Plaid Vest.

Plaid prints are a great way to look like you’re dressed for the occasion while also staying comfortable and effortless. Add a little shine with some eye-catching jewelry or a glimmering scarf. The What I Like Blanket Scarf is perfectly plaid and totally warm. Finish off the look with a knit beanie and ankle booties or a pair of sneakers. Our black Head Strong Pom Beanie can be worn with any plus-size comfy holiday outfit and our Last To Know Booties offer just enough height for this casual Christmas look.

Add Character with Cheery Accessories & Festive Outerwear

A great way to add character, warmth, and functionality to any of these plus-size Christmas outfit ideas is with cheery accessories and festive outerwear clothing. If you’re looking to add a little extra glam to your look, show-stopping jewelry goes a long way. Check out the Simply Stylish Necklace, Hello Darlin’ Earrings, and the Dreaming Of You Earrings from Perfectly Priscilla. To add some warm touches to your ensemble, consider cold-weather accessories as well. We’ve got a bunch of excellent hats and scarves this season.

Even the cutest plus-size winter outfits aren’t complete without the proper outerwear. The faux leather Remember Everything Jacket, the black and red On The Lookout Plaid Jacket, and the All My Soul Striped Vest are a few of our favs. This holiday season, we love the look of long winter coats that will flatter just about any plus-size outfit. When it comes to accessories and outerwear, the idea is to wear what you feel confident in.
