Plus Size Special Occasion Dresses
Relish the opportunities to look your best and show off your style on special occasions. Our plus size dresses at Christopher and Banks offer looks for many different events, from office holiday parties or family events to elegant nights out with a special someone. No matter where you are headed, make sure to arrive with confidence by choosing a style that shows off your best assets.
When browsing for the right dress, focus on finding a unique cut that draws eyes to your favored features. To show off your shoulders and neckline, try a gown that falls at the mid-calf or all the way to the floor. If you need more support on top, consider shortening the hem line and going for a full-sleeve dress. Balancing the amount of skin you show is key to looking elegant and charming rather than unsophisticated at a special event.
The most eye-catching looks are often the ones that balance timelessness and updated style – with few outfits standing the test of time quite like the basic black cocktail dress. You can make it more memorable by choosing the right accessories.
Add a colorful clutch bag, a bold strappy heel or a chic shawl or wrap. Sometimes dramatic makeup like a bold red lipstick and sultry eye shadow will be enough to turn a standard dress into something far more elegant.
If the event you attend allows for a more exciting and flirtatious dress, do not be afraid to show some creativity. Dresses with asymmetric hemlines create a classic feminine shape in an unconventional form. Sheer fabrics create a more dynamic look by adding movement in split sleeves or allure in an open-back dress. Cut out dresses that use the key hole cut at the bust line or a slits at the thigh can be seductive without exposing too much.
Being confident at a formal office party, a wedding, a New Year’s Eve party or another special event begins with the right dress for your shape and style. Our collection at Christopher and Banks is full of fun and feminine options that fit a curvy, full-figured body. Take a moment to browse and find the best special occasion dress for you this season.
