Plus Size Oscars Outfit

The most coveted night in the global film calendar, The Oscars, is fast approaching.  This year will mark the 86th Academy Awards and Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the ceremony, live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday 2nd March.  Via their Twitter, 77 Diamonds will have a live feed covering the event and, most interestingly for me, sharing their thoughts on the best dressed, what everyone’s wearing and the jewellery that compliments their attire.

Whilst I wont be attending, I’ve put together a look of my own for the Oscars and if anyone reading this has a spare ticket, I’m free!

The dress that I would wear would be the Truly You Plunge Neck Maxi Dress from ASOS.  Truly You are a plus size label from LA, available in sizes 18 to 28.  This dress has a gorgeous plunging neckline and a wrap front and back.  It gathers at the waist with an elasticated detail, giving the dress a gorgeous Grecian look.  The dress is a very soft light blue with a slight lilac tone to it, which is perfect for the pastel trend this spring.

With the cool tone to the dress, I think white gold jewellery would be best suited and the Sonnet diamond drop earrings would look gorgeous.  The tear drop shape of the earrings is timeless and compliments the plunging neckline of the dress.  Wear such statement earrings requires minimal effort when wearing a necklace; something simple and elegant would be best.  The Lumina pendant necklace with a pear shaped stone would be a great option as the tear shaped stone compliments the shape of the earrings and the wrap over cut of the dress.

Diamond bracelets were huge at the BAFTAs and I think they will be equally as popular at the Oscars this year.  The Tear bracelet from 77 Diamonds is subtle with just the right amount of sparkle and the tear shape compliments the shape of the earrings and necklace perfectly.

For footwear, I’d wear the Steve Madden Realov-R Ankle Strap Diamante Sandals from Dune which are super sparkly with a slender heel and I’d carry the silver Eliza Diamante Foldover Clutch Bag from Dune which looks beautiful and glamorous.

If only I was going to the Oscars so that I could wear this outfit!
