15 Plus Size LBDs Perfect For The Party Season
The party season is sadly drawing to a close, but there is still time left to wear a gorgeous plus size little black dress to any upcoming events you may have on the horizon. A little black dress (or an LBD) is iconic and gives off super classy vibes, even when it's undergone a modern makeover. The LBD is simple yet stunning and can come in a number of different styles and materials: you could wear an LBD for every day of the week if you so desired.
One of the most classic LBD's in fashion and film history is Audrey Hepburn's Givenchy gown she wore in Breakfast At Tiffany's. Although the LBD is still a classic piece today, it has undergone transformations to make it relevant for our generation. This year Lily Collins wore a whimsical LBD and Katy Perry paired her LBD with purple lipstick. Charlize Theron has proved to be an LBD aficionado after being snapped in an array of little black dresses over the years.
Although simple, the LBD is powerful; it can look gorgeous anytime of year and it can be worn over and over again and can look completely different when paired with different accessories. So here's to all of the parties in 2016 and beyond, where you can stun in a classic LBD.
