New Years eve outfits for curves

I’ve had my eye on New Years Eve outfits for curves for weeks now. I’m 5’3″ and I have curves so naturally dresses for curvy women are my thing. Party dresses should have a little sparkle, shimmer or shine when it comes to New Years eve parties, I think. So, my selection of stylish party outfits have just enough to make you shine.

I’m off to a fancy hotel with my daughter to enjoy celebrating each other: our successes, our comradeship and our love for each other. In some ways this has been a really tough year and this girl is unwavering in her support in me. Now if that doesn’t deserve a Prosecco, I don’t know what does!

So, my glimmering party dress is on, I’m well heeled in sparkling shoes and I’m ready to celebrate!

I really love this flattering dress – it has the most gorgeous pattern and is a classic shape to show off beautiful shoulders! It makes a real statement.

Another dress, if you like having your arms on show, is blue satin dress – it’s the most beautiful colour and I love the flare shirt with the subtle pattern around the hem.

My dress.

I chose to wear this metallic lace dress which has just the right amount of shimmer. I adore the intricate metallic lace work with the thick black ribbon as a contrast.

Pssst – where the black ribbon gave me a bit of a waist (sadly lost to me a few years back), the frill skirt and modern sleeves hid my chunky arms and thighs. Just between us.

So for me this is a great New Years Eve outfit for curves.

I have fallen in love with the dotty material in this this silky pleated dotty skirt and black top  – it’s a great buy and it’ll take you seamlessly through to spring parties.

Another dress I really love is this luxurious blush velvet dress – which flatters in a similar way to my dress but this one skims the body more making it super flattering.

This glamorous velvet wrap dress is the one that will suit every size and shape. It’s pretty gorgeous!

But I wanted to wear something a little different from my usual style and wear a bit of metallic shimmer!

No outfits for New Years Eve for curves would be complete without a beautiful pair of heels…

If there’s any time of year to wear striking shoes, it’s New Years Eve!

Striking shoes for New Years.

Personally I have to wear a band around my ankles to stop court shoes slipping off (why? I have no idea and have stared at my feet long and hard trying to work this oddity out).

Sooooo, a pair I adore is these luxurious metallic leather sandals.

And they are 50% OFF!

These ones are similar but do not have the T bar and are a really wearable colour!

I love these blue metallic court shoes! HURRY 40% OFF!  And these sparkling stunners are the perfect party shoe and currently 30% OFF!

Don’t you love when women find a place away from the party? Somewhere peaceful for a gossip, and a refresh. The women in my family are notorious for gathering in a bedroom where we roar with laughter and refresh our lipsticks, often for far too long!

    I love dresses 1 and 2 but the blue dress you have on is stunning! I find lace done in this way so pretty and you look lovely! I’m currently 4 weeks off giving birth so there wont be any worries about what to wear this year foe me! Hopefully next year I will get to buy a sparkly dress 🙂

      I’m delighted you like some of these dresses. Wow what an exciting way to start the year! Yes, sparkly dresses can wait a while x

    Maria I love this dress, it is super flattering on you and I’m with you – my waist is non-existent! Anything to provide a little shape is welcome in my book!

      Yes haha I’ve started to rely on the illusion of a waist line! Lovely to hear from you Kellyann xx

  4. December 15, 2017 / 12:48 pm

    Wow! You look stunning, what a gorgeous dress – which is going to be perfect for NYE!
    I’m drooling over your staircase, we had one similar in our old house, which I adored! Waiting to build again, so I think another staircase like yours will have to be included!
    Have a super weekend my dear. Jacqui

      I wish it was my staircase too – it’s actually a hotel! My stair case is lovely in my old house but needs repainting – a job for next year. Thank you so much for the lovely compliments Jacqui xx

    I love your style, the dress is gorgeous. I recently found a beautiful dress in Dorothy Perkins which is very flattering to my size 20 curves and has sleeves which makes it even better! You can’t beat a dress that flatters your figure, can you! #blogstravaganza

      December 16, 2017 / 7:38 am

      Thank you Tracey I’m so delighted you like my style. You are so right – it doesn’t matter if you wear a beautiful dress if you look like a sack of potatoes haha x

  16. December 18, 2017 / 6:39 am

    This dress does look so awesome on you! I’d never think to pick it up – maybe I need to be more breve and think outside the box lol

    • Maria Kelly
      December 18, 2017 / 12:29 pm

      Thanks so much Emma! This dress is quite fashionable for me. I usually go for simpler styles – but this dress felt very celebratory and pretty fabulous! x

  17. December 18, 2017 / 10:19 am

    Such a lovely dress! Oh and I simply adore your shoes! I’ve been looking for something like that. Still haven’t found the pair that would make my heart sing though… By the way, you look very slim in fact <3
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! xx
