Celebrate Christmas morning in a plus-size outfit that’s right for you. There are multiple options when it comes to your early holiday outfit—including cozy flannel pajamas and many styles of loungewear. To help you decide what to wear, we’ve put together our picks for the best plus-size outfits for Christmas morning:
You can’t go wrong with flannel pajamas on Christmas morning. Plus-size flannel pajamas come in multiple colors and prints, with lots of styles to choose from. There are flannel PJ separates and sets in long-sleeved and short-sleeved styles. You’ll find flannel pajama pants and shorts, along with plus-size flannel nightgowns and robes.
Flannel PJs in a red-and-white gingham print is a classic choice for the holidays. Classic red plaid is another traditional pajama option, although many other colors are available. Black-and-white buffalo check is a popular print for PJs and can be coordinated with throw pillows, duvet covers, and even curtains with the same on-trend pattern.
Matching family pajamas are a super-cute option for Christmas morning, and they come in sizes to fit all men, women, and kids. You could even coordinate your dog's or cat’s collar to your holiday pajama color scheme. You and your crew can also wear matching PJs for the annual holiday photo or while watching Christmas movies. Take a family vote when it comes to the PJ color or print to keep everyone happy.
Another option is plus-size loungewear. So if you want to be as comfortable as possible on Christmas morning without wearing pajamas, grab some plus-size comfy clothes in your favorite color. Lands’ End’s Serious Sweats are always an option—they’re made from an ultra-plush cotton/polyester blend in a smooth French terry knit.
Opt for five-pocket pants made from polyester and spandex when you want a lounge pant with classic styling. The same fabric is a good choice when shopping for yoga pants, which have a gentle flare towards the bottom and comfort features like flat, wide waistbands with full elastic. Leggings are another type of lounge pant to consider. They pair well with plus-size tunic tops and cozy wool socks or slippers, and they come in many colors to fit your holiday aesthetic.
Pair any of these lounge pant styles with a matching sweatshirt. Women’s plus-size sweatshirts come in classic crewneck and hoodie styles. T-shirts also go with any of these pant styles—especially when you cozy up in a long-sleeve tee crafted from soft Supima cotton.
Supima cotton has twice the strength of regular cotton, thanks to its long-staple fiber. A tee made from this fabric can last well through the holiday season without losing its shape or fading in color. The durability and softness of Supima cotton is one reason it’s so popular for apparel and bedding.
There are also plenty of casual everyday outfits that work for Christmas morning. Plus-size women’s jeans can be worn on Christmas morning and are a stylish choice for receiving guests or going out. They come in straight-leg and skinny styles, along with on-trend high-rise styles. Wear your favorite pair with a red turtleneck for a festive look—to take it up a notch, opt for cashmere over cotton.
Turtlenecks in any fabric can be layered under flannel shirts for a Christmas morning look that goes well with jeans or khaki pants. You can also wear flannels under almost any kind of sweater, whether you prefer a crewneck cable-knit or a V-neck made from a cotton/modal blend.
Plus-size Christmas sweaters are yet another festive option for the holidays. Slip-on a vibrant holiday sweater with jeans or corduroy leggings for an outfit you’ll want to wear all day. As with matching pajamas, Christmas sweaters can become a family tradition. They come in sizes to fit men, women, and kids, and they’re available in many styles.
If you’re having a formal holiday breakfast on Christmas morning, dress appropriately in a pair of black, navy, or charcoal dress pants or a skirt. Women’s blouses in a holiday hue—such as red or green—go with any of these neutral colors. You could also choose a classic sheath dress and add a holiday-print scarf for an elegant Christmas outfit. Finish the outfit with a wool dress coat for upscale style.
Plus-size cashmere sweaters can be integrated into any dressy holiday outfit. A red, green, or ivory cashmere turtleneck or cardigan sweater set is an elegant accompaniment to classic slacks. Add a belt with gold-tone hardware for a touch of holiday sparkle.
As you can see, you can consider many plus-size outfits for Christmas morning. The best outfit is the one in which you feel most comfortable. Try out a few outfits ahead of time to discover which Christmas morning look is right for you.
