plus size dresses and clothing for the fuller figure

The Little Black Dress - Black is back for the plus size woman !

Did anyone try and tell you to get away from black and try out colour?

Well, black is back with a vengeance.  Every since Victoria Beckham said that she had a wardrobe full of "little black Gucci dresses" people have been trying to persuade us to leave black in our wardrobes and opt for something brighter and more colourful.

The great news is that black is alive and well and looks great (and slimming) on just about everybody.

If you're creative with your accessories, you only need one or two elegant black evening or cocktail dresses.  By accessorising them differently for each occasion, you can create an entirely different look for any party or celebration.

One of the quickest ways to create a different look is with a big chunky necklace and a wrap or pashmina - team this with killer heels and you've got a classic, elegant look that you can re-invent whenever you wish.

So, if you do enjoy colour, team it up with a bright scarf, jewellery or earrrings to bring color to your face where it's needed.
