What can I wear to my my niece’s 21st birthday party at a club? I’m the only plus size (size 40/42) amongst my friends. They’ll be wearing leggings & tights.

Ted Baker clutch bagA 21st birthday party is a great way to celebrate adulthood. Everyone has to dress in clothing that is flattering on them. The best strategy when you are a plus size woman is to wear dark color, tailored style, monochromatic (one color) outfits with dark shoes and stockings. Wear pants and a top if that is more flattering on you or a dress if that looks best.
