Plus size Valentine’s Day outfit idea 8: The classic little black dress

Ahhhh, where would we be without the little black dress? Dress it up, dress it down – it’s the wardrobe save-all. Bet you you could wear this dress every day for a month and style it differently each day and you’d get away with it.

This specific LBD is the Jacki-style dress from Captive8. The fit and flair cut of the dress pleases me, and the knot feature as a great detail. The fabric has a nice weight to it without being too hot – you could get away with this dress is summer or winter, depending what you wore it with. It’s definitely been designed with a curvier/plus body in mind.

For Valentine’s Day the obvious choice to pair it with is red. I married it up with my favourite red shoes and some bold red earrings to draw through the theme.

P.S. I’m not sure who the star of this shoot is. Me, or Spooky?
