However you are celebrating this year – even if you are just having a mini party for two in your apartment like we are – we all still deserve to dress up and feel amazing if we want to!  It is wild how fast New Year’s Eve is approaching, and that means we are coming up on shipping deadlines, so I wanted to round up the cutest plus size options that are still possible to get in time:

Full glam New Year’s Eve looks:


NYE-worthy but less obviously seasonal:


Make sure you check the shipping options before ordering, because some of these will need expedited shipping.  And if you are ordering from a store that offers in-store pick up (like Target or Nordstrom), definitely check for that option for possible instant shopping gratification!

Some small businesses have fab NYE looks and shipping options too!  My current favorites are:

Laws of Motion (one of my upscale workwear go-tos who just launched two amazing party dresses in customized microsizes up to 24, including the gorgeous feathered dress above).

Body By Love (a Black plus woman-owned store that was one of the earliest plus shops that provided bold and trendy options).  This sequin dress makes me want to go full bombshell!

And a tried and true fave: RCA Public Label by Renee Cafaro.  I usually shy away from anything called a “convertible dress” but this plus size designer’s innovative built in bra actually works on me, and I love all the different ways you can style it.  Here it is in the black velvet sequin (gorgeous for the holidays!), but it also comes in a chic red and classic black slinky jersey.  Check out the sequin version in motion here if you want to see the full effect!
