Plus Size Short Dresses

Plus size short dresses are must-haves during any season. No matter the occasion, whether you are attending a wedding, cocktail party, bridal shower or other formal event, you need at least one impressive cocktail dress in your wardrobe.

Cocktail dresses are shorter options to full-length gowns and they can be worn at everything from semi-formal events to those upscale black tie soirees. Jessica Howard, Jones New York and Calvin Klein are just a few designers offering plus size short dresses, so every woman can be sure to find the ideal dress to suit her shape and personality.

A sleeveless belted dress is a great option for those warm weather occasions. Try one with a feminine blouson bodice draping with a skinny belt at the waist. A scoop neckline offers coverage without being too prim and proper, and the sleeveless style looks great with a draped scarf around the shoulders.

One alternative to the basic sleeveless style is the flutter sleeve. Some little black dresses feature this style in an asymmetrical design that consists of one flutter sleeve and one sleeveless shoulder. The side with the flutter sleeve is often fitted with a jeweled accent, while the relaxed fit provides hours of comfort no matter the occasion.

Outdoor occasions often call for something with a little more movement. Try a fun and flirty dress with cascading ruffles. Choose a one-shoulder style to bring out the Greek goddess in you, and pair this asymmetrical dress with peep toe pumps and a metallic clutch to keep up with the latest fashions.

Some casual occasions call for plus size short dresses, such as a beach vacation or shopping excursion with the girls. Try a strapless dress with a knotted front that gathers at the bust in a sweetheart neckline. This pullover style creates a nice silhouette on any woman, and is a big hit with juniors.
