It’s Prom Season, and twenty years ago when I was preparing for Prom I wish I had more options. I actually ended up buying a cute halter dress with white gloves from Sears. Now, plus size girls have a lot more options so you can look your best and be the princess you want to be for your big night out.
With this post, I have 2 outfits one that is perfect if you are a smaller scale of being plus size and one for folks like me who are the bigger end of the spectrum. This post especially is all about making prom accessible for everyone, not just the straight sized people!
Okay, I have talked long enough. Let me get started breaking down this plus size prom outfit inspiration, shall we?

First up, is a dress is a little risque for Prom, but I have to remind myself that this is not 2002 anymore and it’s 2019. This shiny plus size gold sequin evening dress from TBdress is sure to get attention. This dress reminds me of something that I can see some starlet on the red carpet wearing at a premiere or an award ceremony. It’s all about glamour and sparkle.
To match, I chose these gorgeous fuschia bow top high heel sandals from fsjshoes. They are so beautiful that when I found them I had a heart in my eyes. I really love the color the shoe, and it really goes well the gold of the dress.
Next is the accessories: I went with ultra shiny when I came to them. First up, I chose this simple layered gold coin necklace Nordstroms. It really gives the impression of looking utterly expensive without having to pay a lot of money. Next, I chose, this nude color and gold mirror clutch handbag from DSW. Finally, are these gorgeous gold drop earrings from Carolyn Pollack. I really love how basic and elegant they are and you can totally wear them over and over again in your daily life.
Now, let’s move on to my second outfit!
(Sizes up to 30)
Let’s start with the lavender colored plus size convertible strap evening dress. I love this dress so much! It looks so pretty and it’s one of my favorite colors (purple). However, what really makes this dress work for me is that is so versatile! The straps are easily convertible! No matter if you prefer a strapless, halter top, one side strap you can easily customize this dress. By the way? It’s on sale, so if you got a wedding in June to go to? This dress can absolutely be worn for that event as well! Also, I’m all about comfort, and what made this dress a big winner for me is that it looks so comfortable. This is something I can totally see myself wearing to dance the night away!
To match (because gold is totally a theme in this post) is these gorgeous pair of gold metallic kitten heel sandals from ASOS. With this outfit, this is all about comfort and these heels are elegant but won’t kill your feet by the end of the night. Also, remember that gold is a neutral so you can wear these heels multiple times with multiple outfits.
Let’s talk about accessories! For this outfit, in particular, I wanted to go with the one strap Grecian look because I’m a Greek mythology nerd, okay? So, a lot of this outfit has a lot of Greek-inspired touches. Next up is this pretty gold sequin clutch from Charming Charlie. To match, these gorgeous gold leaf drop earrings Romwe. I really love how pretty they are and they give me all the greek feel without being too expensive.
Then finally, I chose this gold leaf arm bracelet that I found on Etsy to really round off the look.
And this is my two looks for a plus size prom outfit inspiration! What do you think? Let me know down in the comments!
