The holidays look a lot different this year. While you may not be getting together with family this holiday season or attending parties with your friends, that doesn’t mean your holiday outfits are doomed! If quarantine has taught us anything… it’s that you don’t need an excuse to get dressed up. Putting on an outfit has done wonders for my self esteem while in quarantine. I find that when I dress up, I have way more confidence and I am so much more productive.
As I mentioned above, when I am trying to figure out how to build confidence, the quickest way for me is to throw on an outfit I love—even if I am staying inside all day. And since the holidays may be hard for most of us because we aren’t surrounded by friends and family, wearing a plus size holiday outfit may put you in the Christmas spirit.
This year, I am wearing two adorable looks from Torrid, which I just ordered from their new holiday collection We Wish You. I obviously added some dazzle into my outfits because while I never need an excuse to wear sequins, the holidays are the perfect time to sparkle a little more.
My first holiday look of the season is this beautiful plus size sequin dress. The fluted mini fit hugs my curves just right and makes the dress versatile as it could be worn with tights and a coat or strappy heels by itself. I love the bronze sequins on this dress because it’s flashy, but not too over the top. I decided to throw on a plus size coat to stay warm in these photos!
And while I love a cute plus size mini dress, I also dream of a holiday look that is both glam and comfortable. So for my second holiday outfit, I paired Torrid’s Bombshell velvet tuxedo pant with a plus size sequin top. This all black outfit is simple yet very chic and it’s incredibly comfortable. Torrid’s bombshell skinny jeans are the most comfortable pants I have ever worn in my life. They feel like leggings and the thick ponte material contours my curves. I’m obsessed.
No matter what your plans are for the holidays, I hope you take some time for yourself. You deserve to relax and feel special today whether you’re hosting a celebration or watching Christmas movies and drinking hot cocoa.
Happy Holidays! XO
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2 in the sequin mini dress and sequin top, which is my usual size, and both of these pieces fit me perfectly! I ordered a size 18 in the tuxedo pant, which is my usual size, and the pants fit me perfectly. As I mentioned above, the pants are very stretchy, but they also have light compression.
Torrid sent me these outfits to review. All opinions are 100% my own!
