Step into the Sparkle Season

Autumn clothing - Plus Size Women

As we enter the final months of the year and November greets us with the promise of festive charm, you may wish to start planning those Christmas outfits!
With the LJ’s sparkle season launch now in full swing, we take you through some easy ways to make 2024 your most FASHIONABLE Christmas yet.
We believe in making the most out of everyday Christmas activities – it’s the one time of year you can really go ‘ALL OUT’ and nobody batters an eyelid – so with that in mind, let’s run through some TOP Christmas activities and how us LJ’s girls would make them more stylish.

What to wear for Christmas Shopping

Whether you’re hitting the high street with determination, or leisurely strolling through Christmas markets with a mulled wine in hand – it’s often the first opportunity to wear some festive cheer.
This time of year can be chilly, but when you’re popping in and out of shops you can soon warm up!
We’d choose an outfit with LAYERS for Christmas shopping. A pair of comfy magic jeans teamed with a thin polo jumper will give a versatile base layer. Then simply add another jumper for the middle layer. Right now, we’re all falling in love with the Tasha fur gilet. This cosy sleeveless coat will give you the freedom to move around effortlessly in warmth.
PLUS it looks ‘the part’ –
get ready for hot chocolate poses by the market tree!

What to wear for the work Christmas lunch

If the boss has suggested the whole team enjoy lunch out to celebrate Christmas, you might be looking for an outfit that’s festive, but smart enough to wear around the office beforehand.
Our choice here would be a dark pair of magic trousers or leggings, teamed up with a glamorous blouse. Our collection of blouses and shirts for curvy girls includes some stunning options – with pussybow details, sparkling finishes and flattering high low shapes there’s some great options. You’ll be going from desktop coffee to lunchtime margarita faster than you can say ‘Chrimbo’.

What to wear for the BIG Night out

Whether it’s a work thing, a family get-together or a full ON Christmas ball – we’re sure to have something to suit your style. Nothing says ‘Christmas Party’ quite like sequins – and here at LJ’s we’ve sprinkled them on almost everything this year!
If you’re ready to make heads turn, opt for a sparkly wrap dress (the Glitzy is our favourite this year)
Trousers more your thing? Our Tinsel Tess Jumpsuit set offers a complete look with full on sparkle! What’s more, both these options come in a generous size range – best fitting ladies up to size 26.

What to wear on Christmas Eve

If the night before Christmas is your time to cosy down in-front of the tree and binge on your favourite movie, then we’re on the same page!
Our top choice for the perfect Christmas Eve at home would involve one of the LJ’s comfy lounge sets – The Elizabeth, The Hush, The Velvetise and the Chillax are all of incredible quality and perfect for settling down in. What’s more, because they’re plain in pattern, you’ll be able to wear these long after Christmas time – an investment piece for sure!

What to wear on Christmas Day

Although it’s going to be a sad moment when you climb out of your lounge set, do not fear – this is Christmas Day and magic does happen!
For the most indulgent day of the year, it has to be a pair of magic trousers. With their incredibly comfortable (and stretching) elasticated waistband you can say ‘yes’ to that extra mince pie without haste. What’s more they look just like a regular pair of trousers whilst being as comfortable as a pair of PJ bottoms. Their comfortable elastic means you can stretch around the kitchen and loll around on the sofa with ease. But what to wear on top? It just has to be one of the LJ’s Christmas tops! For those that feel the heat, choose one of our hand-designed festive T-shirts – or if long sleeves are your preferred choice – our soft and lightweight Christmas jumpers will do just the trick.

And that’s it. That is what Leesa, Sally and the team will be wearing this Christmas
Now to think of New Year…….
