December is almost here which means it’s time to get ready for the upcoming festive season. Although Holiday parties might not be the big affair they have been in previous years, it’s still a time for feeling sparkly and it’s important not to miss the opportunity to get dressed up and feel good about yourself. With things a little rough right now, the excuse to get your glam on can be a real mood booster!

Whatever the size of your gathering you can still get ready for a fabulous party season.

Of course lots of us are watching the pennies right now, so if you’re going to shop, you might want to opt for an investment purchase that you can wear again and again, rather than something too trend heavy.

A LBD or little black dress is a great purchase for the party season this year as this classic look never goes out of fashion and can be loved and worn for many events, for many years to come. You can easily switch up your LBD by adding new accessories, including pops of colour or festive appropriate metallics. From heels to trainers or a pair of boots, LBD’s are really versatile.

We’ve rounded up seven of our favourite plus size black dresses that you can buy now and love forever.
