No matter what you’re up to this New Year’s Eve, you’ll want to look fashionable and confident. The best part about this holiday is that there aren’t really any rules on what to wear, so all you’ll need to nail your NYE look is a little inspiration. Whether you’re leaning more toward sequins, satin, animal print, bold patterns, or a more simple ensemble, you really can’t go wrong. We’ve covered everything from formal, semi-formal, flirty, simple, and casual outfits. No matter what your look is, the new year is an excellent time to make a fashion statement. These six totally trendy plus-size New Year’s Eve outfits should inspire you to cheer, dance, and celebrate all night long.

1. Glamorous Gown

Are you heading to a fancy party this New Year’s Eve and want to look extra glamorous? Get inspired, because this is one of our favorite plus-size new year’s eve outfits. If you’ve got some serious celebrating to do, take your outfit to the next level with a shiny or sparkly formal gown or long dress. New Year’s Eve is the perfect opportunity to buy a new dress (or two) to add to your evening wear collection. Perfectly Priscilla carries lots of long plus-size New Year’s Eve dresses to flatter every body type and make you stand out from the crowd including maxi styles, wrap dresses, and both form-fitting and semi-form-fitting options. Formal plus-size dresses are available in any style, size, cut, and fabric you can imagine. At PPB, we love the look of a sequin dress for New Year’s Eve and carry some stellar options. When choosing a glammed-up dress for winter formal wear, consider black, gold, silver, or deep jewel tones like emerald green, burgundy, purple, royal blue, or red. Complete the look with formal pumps, a classy clutch, some costume jewelry, a long trench coat, and your most flattering lipstick.

2. Blast From the Past

Just because it’s going to be 2019, that doesn’t mean you can’t rock styles from decades past. In fact, New Year’s Eve is an ideal occasion for donning a retro outfit. The plus-size winter line from PPB has plenty of vintage-inspired dresses, tops, and accessories that nod to the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s. From flirty polka-dot dresses, embroidered frocks, and fringed ponchos to tassel necklaces and knee-high boots, we have plenty of throwback pieces to choose from. To create a slimming effect with plus-size retro embroidered clothing, select items with embroidery along the bottom or down the front in vertical lines.

3. Impress in a Party Dress

A great go-to plus-size New Year’s Eve look is a fun cocktail dress. We’re talking short to mid-length in an eye-catching fabric such as sequins, satin, shimmery stretch, or tulle. When it comes to New Year’s Eve party dresses, you’ll want to choose a frock that offers a little something extra. You should feel confident, fresh, stylish, and maybe even a little sparkly. Whether you want to rock a midi, shift, bodycon, or another type of flirty party dress, Perfectly Priscilla’s line of plus-size winter party and cocktail dresses has it all. We even carry sweater dresses that can be dressed up or down, depending on where you’re headed. Each of our dresses is designed with a super stretchy fabric that will keep you comfortable all night long, no matter which cut you're wearing. With sassy details including front slits, v-cut necklines, cut-out shoulders, and on-trend choker collars, you’ll be sure to impress in one of our flirtatious party dresses. Complete this look with pumps or strappy heels, warm outerwear, a sexy updo, and nude or bold lips.

4. Flirt in a Skirt & Sweater

One of the best plus-size New Year’s Eve outfit ideas is a flirty skirt and sweater combination because it can be worn to just about any event. At Perfectly Priscilla, we adore the look of a simple top with a statement skirt if you’re heading out. It’s just the right amount of formal and festive while also being a wintertime fashion staple. If you’re heading out with friends, getting dinner with your significant other, or hosting a get-together at home, this classic look will make you feel ready to say, “Happy New Year!” To balance out this ensemble, select a bold or printed skirt with a simple plus-size sweater or a statement sweater with a solid skirt. Late December can get pretty cold depending on where you live, so we recommend solid or shimmery tights and a long winter coat with this outfit. Finish the look with glittery nail polish, dazzling earrings, and a lip color that pops.

5. Curvy, Cute, & Casual

When you feel comfortable with what you’re wearing, you’ll be able to welcome in the new year with enthusiasm and confidence. Our curvy, cute, and casual plus-size New Year’s Eve outfit idea is just the thing to wear to any non-formal event you’re heading to or for staying in. Think about pairing a long-sleeve tunic or sweater with  leggings. This New Year’s Eve look is all about mixing and matching basic pieces with bold items. Just because you’re comfy and cozy, that doesn’t mean you won’t be sexy in this cute plus-size New Year’s Eve outfit. Finish the look with a shiny scarf, eye-catching earrings, over-the-knee boots or ankle booties, and some flirty lip gloss.

6. Little Black Dress

When in doubt, go for a little black dress. If you’ve weighed your options and still can’t decide on what to wear this New Year’s Eve, there’s always the trusty LBD. Perfectly Priscilla carries a line of plus-size little black dresses that are anything but boring. We have black dresses in all different cuts with every detail you can imagine including bell sleeves, open shoulders, buttons, embroidery, and asymmetrical sleeves. Curvy women look stunning in little black dresses. We know you’ll find the perfect fit and style from PPB. For shoes, you can go for black or nude pumps or statement heels in a bright shade or animal print. Finish with a sleek hairstyle and a long wool jacket or trench coat.

Wear What Flatters Your Frame

New Year’s Eve is a time to shine, and when it comes to plus-size party outfits, you can’t go wrong as long as you look and feel your best. We recommend paying more attention to finding the proper fit for your body rather than worrying about what specific size you’re wearing. Clothing that is too tight or too loose won’t flatter your frame like something that’s the perfect fit. PPB carries plus-size shapewear designed to smooth, tuck, and accentuate your silhouette in all the right areas and make your New Year’s Eve outfit sit just right. We have comfortable shaping undergarments and high-waist compression slips with tummy-control that can be worn under skirts and dresses of all lengths.

Also, for an elongated look, try to avoid pieces with horizontal stripes and opt for dark, solid colors instead. Short and mid-length dresses and skirts with higher waistlines can create the appearance of a cinched tummy and longer legs which will make you look stunning in any plus-size New Year’s Eve outfit. Lastly, don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone with your look. The new year is all about resolutions and renewal, so now’s the time to experiment with winter fashion trends. New year, new you!

Countdown to Midnight with Costume Jewelry

Add the perfect finishing touch to any of these plus-size New Year’s Eve outfits with some costume jewelry. Our bold, show-stopping line of accessories includes necklaces, earrings, and bracelets for a little added glamour to help you nail your look. Whether your outfit is more glammed-up, casual, or somewhere in between, the right jewelry is just the thing you need to tie the whole thing together.

Steal the Show from Head to Toe

Don’t forget shoes for your plus-size New Year’s Eve outfit! If you think you’re going to wear a formal gown or cocktail dress, we recommend going with heels or pumps. For winter evening wear, we love strappy heels in a simple black, white, or metallic color. Ankle-strapped heels are totally trendy and chic with a secure fit perfect for a night of dancing. And –– bonus –– they can be worn well beyond the new year. We also adore the look of a classic pump in solid hues such as black or nude. Animal print is another favorite if you’re feeling adventurous. The slip-on pumps from Perfectly Priscilla come in a variety of heights and styles including pointed toe, peep toe, and almond. They are effortlessly elegant, comfortable to walk and dance in, and make a great addition to your winter wardrobe.

Stay Warm in a Winter Coat

Once you’ve got your outfit, jewelry, and shoes picked out, you only need one more thing to complete your plus-size New Year’s Eve outfit: a winter coat. This season, we love long winter coats and jackets because they’re super warm, chic, and can be worn with both fancy and casual ensembles. At Perfectly Priscilla, we carry a variety of plus-size outerwear pieces that will go great with each of these six plus-size New Year’s Eve outfits including cropped jackets, long jackets, blazers, cozy cardigans, shawls, and ponchos. Consider some cold-weather accessories too, like a shiny scarf, elegant gloves, or a cute hat. Once you’ve got your outerwear and warm accessories, you’ll be all set for New Year’s Eve.
