The holiday season is upon us, and let's be honest: Aside from the stress of getting the house together or traveling, preparing meals, buying gifts etc. — getting dressed up is pretty darn fun!

Glitzy holiday outfits for the plus-size woman

If you're thinking about what to wear, let me make a few suggestions! This year, I'm all about going for the glitz. I'm not saying that you need to look like you were attacked by a gang of fairies, but there is something to be said for adding a little sparkle.

There are so many ways to do it: shimmery makeup, nail colors and — of course — clothes. I've rounded up a few standout plus-size pieces that either are glitzy themselves or pair perfectly with glitzy pieces. You'll notice that this isn't just a party-dress story, because even though holiday dresses are amazing (there are a few included here, as well), fancy-schmancy separates offer a great, fashion-forward and inventive way to dress up.

Here's my approach to a casual holiday hang with friends.
