The winter months can be long and cold, which make it easier for you to forgive yourself for dressing in flannels and sweats day after day. Don’t get me wrong, it is a quick and easy guilty pleasure, but let’s be honest, comfy and cozy does not always equate to chic and fabulous. There’s always a time and place for everything. A Luxe Beauty should always be prepared for any occasion and these looks coming up will definitely give you a head start.
Casual and Cozy
This winter, try to avoid the dark side by staying away from the common go-to colors like black and gray. Instead, switch it up and add some plum to your wardrobe. And ladies, don’t be afraid of skinny jeans; they’re not only comfortable but they also accentuate your curves like no other. Don’t fall victim to the misconception that curvy girls “shouldn’t” wear fitted clothing; instead, embrace your curves and flaunt them how you see fit. Make them jealous.

Girls’ Night Out
Get together with the girls for a night on the town in this wrap dress by Xehar Curvy. Wrap dresses are perfect for any body type as they’re not form-fitting like a bodycon, yet they hug your curves in all of the right places. The long sleeves on this fabulous dress will keep you warm on a cold winter’s night and the glitter is not over-stated but instead is just enough to turn heads. For added warmth, pair this with a leather moto jacket like this one from Lane Bryant.
Paper-bag skirts are a big trend this season. Their unique “paperbag” waist is what makes them stand out from all the rest. Add in its floral appeal–yes, florals are winter friendly–and pencil style and this skirt gets an automatic five-star rating. Big thanks to Asos Curve for keeping Luxe Beauties on trend.
Get your 70’s vibe back with this polyester jumpsuit from Modcloth. Featuring a gathered bust, tulip-style half sleeves, and a broad waistband with a belt, you can go from office wear to dinner wear without the need of bringing a change of clothes with you to work. The pleated wide-with legs of this one piece will have you sashaying through your day with ease and confidence. Layer a wool coat (like this one from Navabi) over it and add a pair of closed-toe booties to keep you warm and toasty while you mingle about.Modcloth, $129.00 (Sizes Up to a 4X!)
