Plus Size Cocktail Dresses

Cocktail dresses in plus size are designed to make you feel gorgeous for any special occasion. Wear to festive events, holiday parties, birthdays and weddings to feel stunning. A simple black cocktail dress is known to be flattering, slimming and beautiful. You can wear a bodycon design with a pretty plunging neckline, off the shoulder bodice or high neck. You can flaunt your fashion sense in new season metallics, bright floral prints or statement colors such as red, hot pink or gunmetal. One of the best styles for any size women is a dress with an empire waist. This shows off your narrowest point, creating a natural hourglass look.

Larger size party designs can often have a hot red carpet vibe, with back cut-outs, fitted silhouettes, and cold shoulder necklines. To get into glamour mode, choose a cocktail dress with a celebrity-inspired look and pair with high heels and a clutch for any night on the town, dinner or special event. 


Black Plus Size Party Dresses

Every fashionista needs a black party dress, and that means plus size girls should have one too! A black short dress is the ultimate classic item you can wear many times and re-style for new occasions. To find the perfect timeless black dress, opt for something very simple, free of many details and with the perfect fit. Focus on flattering your figure and showing off your curves. If you want a form-fitting black dress, look for jersey or stretch fabrics that will shape to your figure. 

Black party dresses can also be trendy and fashion-forward. Currently, sequins and metallic embellishments are two big trends. These details can be found on many of our black dress designs, ideal for upcoming parties. Velvet is another favorite look at the moment and you can find many velvet dresses to choose from. These are great for Fall or Winter months especially, offering you a textured look for holiday events and parties. 


Plus Size Short Dresses With Sleeves

For Fall, many women look for warmer cocktail pieces to wear to their upcoming events. A party dress with sleeves is the perfect solution. A long sleeve dress can keep you warm and still shows off your sense of style. This is also a modest and elegant fashion choice all year round. A long-sleeve cocktail plus size dress can have sheer, three quarter or full-length opaque sleeves. To show off some skin, you can balance the look with a plunging neckline or open back.

Long sleeve dresses can also have a beautiful flowy look. If you wish to create a delicate and feminine style, opt for a chiffon cocktail design with long sheer sleeves and embellished bodice. This is a pretty look that will work for wedding guests or attending birthday parties. For the girl who loves minimalism, a white long sleeve dress with clean lines and a fitted shape is a favorite. This can include a simple detail such as a one-shoulder cut or statement ruffle at the neck.


A Line Plus Size Cocktail Dresses

Many women of all ages love dresses with an A Line cut. This is also known as a fit and flare shape and is famously flattering for women of all body types and sizes, especially for women who want to highlight their narrow waistline. An A-Line cocktail dress has a fitted bodice and a flared or pleated skirt. This gorgeous shape can include a variety of style options. You can pick any neckline you feel comfortable with, as well as long or short sleeves. A fit and flare dress is seen as appropriate for women of all ages, from teens to mature women.

This is a favorite style choice for an event such as Homecoming, birthday parties and semi-formal events. A fit and flare cocktail dress is a versatile and flattering style option. To make the look unforgettable, choose a dress with a memorable detail such as a lace-up back dress, spaghetti straps design or lace bodice.
