Best Plus Size Little Black Dresses For Any Occasion

A classic little black dress (LBD) might be the most important wardrobe staple you can own.  It’s versatile.  It’s elegant.  It’s easy.  Your ideal little black dress might be casual with sneakers or it may be over the top elegant for a night on the town.

Finding the perfect plus size little black dress doesn’t have to be hard.  It’s ultimately about finding a great fit for your body and a great fit for your lifestyle.  Are you a “jeans and tee-shirt” kind of gal?  Maybe a simple cotton t-shirt dress will fit your style.  Are you a social butterfly with a booming weekend schedule? Maybe you should take it up a notch with lace, sequins, or other fun design elements.

There’s a perfect LBD for everyone, and I’ve rounded up my favorites from several of my favorite plus size brands in a variety of styles to meet your preference and budget!

 

First, Let’s talk about money.

More specifically, let’s talk about clothing budgets and where to splurge vs. save.

I know that budgets are real.  I’m as frugal as anyone I know, and I’ve always been a clearance rack shopper.  I always will be.  I’ve learned in recent years that some pieces are just worth investing a bit extra.   I always recommend going for quality in these classic pieces and going for fast fashion or lower quality items for trends that won’t matter two years from now.

If you’re going to splurge on anything in your wardrobe, an LBD is one of the wisest investments you can make (along with a good bra and good jeans). For that reason, I have not included “fast fashion” dresses here from stores like Walmart.  Quality is key for wardrobe essentials so you’ll find pieces from some of my favorite brands like Anthropologie, Modcloth, Lane Bryant, Torrid, and Eloquii.
