Plus Size Evening Looks with Gwynnie Bee (Mostly City Chic)

Today, I have some awesome plus size evening looks for you using Gwynnie Bee which is a clothing rental service for women who are size 10-32.  Gwynnie Bee is GREAT for evening especially if you have a lot of different events to attend.  I find a lot of evening looks to be very memorable and I tend to see a lot of the same people at the events I attend so it's nice to wear a rental so I look different in the photos.  This is just a personal preference, obviously.  You can easily wear the same dress to your events and change things up with accessories or you can just wear the same thing every time and rock it.  But if you haven't tried the Gwynnie Bee 30 Day Free Trial and you have a lot of events coming up, it's the perfect time to try it!  (I've used affiliate links in this post but as always, the opinions are my own.  Thank you for any support you show to me and my blog!)  

Eliza J Cold Shoulder Fit & Flare Dress - I love a cold shoulder right now!  I feel like it's stylish and a little sexy without showing much skin.  This dress has a great weight to it and would transition really beautifully into the fall and winter.  It has great stretch and the fit & flare cut is works well on my apple shaped body.  (PS is there are term for an Apple with thick legs?  Are Apple shapes supposed to have small legs?  I don't know.)  This dress also has pockets which I love!  It's also a lot later in the evening in this photo so sorry for bad picture.  

City Chic Mono Sheer Panel Dress- I'm OBSESSED with this dress!  In fact, I ended up buying it.  I love the black and white stripes with the flowers!  I love the sheer panel at the top!  I need to go buy some red shoes to wear with this dress and my life would be made!  I like how it pulls in at the waist. Without Gwynnie Bee, I never would have tried this dress and I'm so happy I did!

City Chic Lady Tiffany Dress- I feel like this dress is also perfect for brunch or a tea especially if you put a cardigan over it or a kimono.  The length is really conservative.  I really loved the water color print looking skirt.  Overall, I don't like this length on me since I have short legs and a longer torso.  I feel like tea length dresses and skirts make me look so short even in heels.  It's a really beautiful dress and if you are taller or just have longer legs, I think this would work well.

City Chic Scoop Nick Ponte Peplum Dress- I sent this dress back to Gwynnie Bee and it hurts my heart every time I look at the pictures of it.  I took this dress with me to Vegas and wore it to a concert and out clubbing and it was just perfect!  This peplum was in the perfect spot!  I got so many compliments on this dress!  The length is on the shorter side of what I usually wear but it was not uncomfortable.  The fabric was stretchy and suited my figure really well.  The belt that comes with it is the perfect accessory!  I really wish I had bought this dress.  I have so much regret!

MBLM by Tess Holliday Mesh Tunic and Lucky Brand Emma Crop Jean- This outfit is more a going out with the girls to the club type look which is different for me but I do it.  The model showing off this shirt is wearing a tank top under it and I didn't realize that.  I put this top on with a bra and yes, that is my bra you are seeing in the photo.  I'm not mad at it.  I'm not going to lie.  Of course, you could wear a tank under and be more conservative but this works for a night out or a date night with hubby!  The Lucky Jeans fit me really well but obviously they aren't as cropped on me since I have short legs.  The model is wearing them cuffed but I didn't like the look of the cuff so I wore them unfolded.

What kind of outfits do you wear for evening?  What are your favorite brands?  I think I need to go check out City Chic some more since I'm obviously drawn to their designs.

  1. Great looks! I really like the top in the last picture and the cold shoulder dress. Each look is really flattering!

  2. I'm genuinely impressed with these clothes. As a plus-sized gal myself, I often feel like the way clothes are cut on me are so weird. You and I are about the same size I think, and these honestly look perfect on you, which makes me want to shop for them even more! lol

  3. Those are such cute clothes! You always look so rocking! :)

  4. Those a such cute looks! I like the first dress in the black and the thrid dress with that print skirt the best!

  5. What I wear for an evening out definitely depends on where I'm going. I love dressing up in a dress, a pretty skirt, or a polished top with jeans and heels! I think a clothing rental service is a great idea, especially if you have a lot of events to attend like you said.
