The Ultimate Plus Size Holiday Party Guide 2015: The LBD

While it is always fun to rock a spangly sequined dress to a holiday party, sometimes you don’t need (or want) that level of glitter.  If you are looking for something versatile enough to dress up or down, a fab little black dress is always a good call.  Look for interesting details and cuts to make this classic anything but basic.

I’ve rounded up my favorites below, along with the accessories to take the look to full holiday-party-festive levels.
