Wedding and gala season is just starting to heat up, prompting the ever-present question, “What am I going to wear?!” When it comes to formal occasions, I’m usually a dress gal. I’m always on the hunt for plus size dresses that are versatile and make a statement like this red and black plus size party dress from Sydney’s Closet. Remember the gorgeous rose gold sequin dress a few weeks ago? (See the post here!) That was also from Sydney’s Closet.
Even though I’ve been experimenting with blush and neutral tones this season, my heart still belongs to rich, bold colors. This Mockneck Cold Shoulder Plus Size Dress from Avenue in this saturated coral hue rings all my bells!
Have you ever picked up a dress that is so not your style and fallen in love with it? That happened to me when I tried on this Forever 21 Plus Size Black Lace Up Midi Dress last month. I’m usually obsessed with all things colorful and go for bold silhouettes. But WOW, this plus size knit midi dress (or is it a maxi?) made all of my secret GOTH girl dreams come true.
We have had record-breaking, unseasonably warm weather here in Chicago, and I’m already pulling out the spring fashions. I know we are going to pay for this gorgeous weather with like 3 more months of winter, but I don’t care! I’m obsessed with this Forever 21 Plus Palm Print Plus Size Bomber Jacket (looks like bomber jackets are here to stay for at least another season!). I paired it with this nude bodycon tank dress and some fresh white kicks for a totally cool, summery casual look.
HOTNESS! There is no other word for this amazing plus size red lace dress from City Chic. The scarlet lace over a nude base is just fierce! I cannot get over the color, design and price of this dress. It was perfect for Valentine’s Day…but this is a dress that will be perfect for occasions throughout the year. Here’s a direct shoppable* link to this City Chic So Fancy Lace Dress from Nordstrom.
