The Little Black Swing Dress

This is another one of the little black dresses I recently bought from Asos after I realised that I had been overlooking that essential wardrobe piece by far too long for bold and colourful dresses.

Generally I love peplum dresses, tea dresses and skater dresses. Or in short, dresses that are taken in at the waist that create and highlight nice hour glass like figure. So so far shift dresses hadn’t made it into my wardrobe yet as I was afraid  that, given my plus-size figure, it would make me look a bit like I was wearing a nighty. This is actually the first swing dress I have tried on.

As I first suspected it unfortunately looks somewhat shapeless on me it’s own. Little Black Swing Dress - Asos

However in a combination with a cardigan or belt, it is a completely different story.

This does not mean that I amw now a passionate swing dress fan. But this dress has made it’s way into my wardrobe and it will be worn in different combinations with cardigans, belts and similar.

If you like this dress, it can be bought here on the Asos website. It t y (at the time of this post) is even reduced down to £15 from it’s original price of £25.

Ultimately I will in future I will give swing dresses a bit more of a chance. Who knows maybe there is an amazing swing dress out there in a great print or colour that might become a key piece of my wardrobe.

What is your opinion of plus-size swing dresses? Unshapely nighty or essential wardrobe piece?
