How To Wear Plus Size Little Black Dress

By now every girl knows that if her wardrobe has nothing else she must have a Little Black Dress (LBD). The LBD is an essential item for every girl’s closet. It can be dressed up or down and worn to just about any occasion. Depending on you shape your perfect LBD may be below or above the knee, sheath or a-line, long or short sleeved or even sleeveless if that’s your preference. The real problem isn’t finding the dress because there are many LBDs out there even for plus size women, the problem is finding the best ways to accessorize your LBD.

So today I’m going to show you the best ways to accessorize your LBD for several different occasions. The LBD I’m going to use as our foundation is the Black 3/4 Sleeve Dress from Yours Clothing. This LBD will be flattering on just about every body shape because it is v-neck, 3/4 sleeve, between a-line and sheath and it has empire waistline which is flattering on most figures.

For a meeting at the office one doesn’t want to be too glamorous but not shabby either. The best thing to do is keep it simple and classy and nothing says classy like pearls. Pair pearl stud earrings and a pearl necklace and you’re good on the jewelry front. For shoes you can never go wrong with basic black heels that will keep your look polished. And for a handbag a classt black tote or something similar will do nicely for work. Below is a pearl earring, necklace and bracelet set from Very; black block heel court shoes from Evans; and the black patent snake effect bag from Yours Clothing.

For a night out there is no such thing as too glamorous. LBDs are the perfect foundation for being sexy and sophisticated. Spice up your outfit with a pair of lacy tights that add a lot of sexiness to otherwise bare legs. Next, time for some bling, I would suggest some shiny earrings and depending on how big they are a necklace as well. If you are wearing really big earrings then forget the necklace. I would also say to add a cocktail ring or a blingy bracelet keep in mind that it may be better to have them on separate arms. For shoes, breakout those gorgeous platform pumps you’ve been dying to wear, they are sure to be a hit. And since this is a night out travel light and carry a clutch. Below are flower lace tights from, and jewelry, sequined platform shoes and a crystal interlaceclutch all from Simply Be.

Finally for a weekend outing its time to make your LBD more casual. Pairing your LBD with a denim jacket and some colorful sneakers is just the way to do it. Add a girl headband for a feminine touch and a tote or hobo bag that will work for you weekend errands. Below is a Tallissime denim jacket and red Converse sneakers both from; and a Glass bead motif headband and Body Star tote both from Simply Be.

When it comes to accessorizing I like listen to Coco Chanel who used to say “When accessorizing, always take off the last thing you put on,” now if you feel you’ve got a great thing going on then don’t worry about it but if you think you may have overdone it or have a habit of overdoing it this is definitely a quote to live by.
