All-Black Ensembles for Thick Girls Who like High Fashion ...

I love wearing all black and I make no apologies for it. It's partly because I am a dark, twisty, cynical person, and black clothing fits my mood. It's also partly because I'm pretty sure I was Parisian in a past life.

It's also because, as we all know, black is slimming – and I am a thick girl. No apologies for that, either. All-black outfits invariably look high fashion, even when they're simple. For my curvy sisters, I have a stunning selection of all-black ensembles that are perfect for full-figured fashionistas. Get some inspiration for your next out-of-this-world outfit.

1. This Draped LBD

You really can't go wrong with a little black dress, and this one is stunning. The drape gives it personality and that statement necklace is a gorgeous complement.

2. Ravishing Ruffles

This look is on fire. The ruffles are stunning but they don't add bulk, which is important, and also, I am in love with this lady's legs.

3. A Deep V

Look at that plunging vee neck! I love the transparent panel, too!

4. These Dresses

Fierce, figure-hugging, and beyond flattering – they're both winners!

5. Just a Pop of Color

Wearing an all-black ensemble with a single pop of color is a surefire way to look like the queen of haute couture. This is pretty, polished, and perfectly put together.

6. Show a Little Leg

I love this dress style – and yes, you should always show a little leg.

7. Don't Be Scared of Leather

Don't be scared of leggings, either. Look at this outfit. I want to be this woman. I want to strut down the sidewalk with half as much confidence.

8. Off the Shoulder

Notice the luxe athletic look, too, thanks to the sneakers. You should steal this.

9. Professional Curves

Want to wear all black to the office? A dress like this is perfect, either on its own or with a blazer, cardigan, or shrug. The best part is that you can effortlessly take it from day to night.

10. Just a Bit Sheer

A sheer touch will also let you add some subtle color to your outfit. Gold, by the way, is a gorgeous, glamorous complement to black.

11. Crop It

Girl, you are killing it. Killing. It. And girls reading this, you can, too – a high-waisted skirt and a crop top are all you need.

12. Get Glam

This dress is so gorgeous! It fits beautifully, it has just enough formal flair to work for any number of functions or occasions, and it shows a little skin. Perfect!

13. A Little Paris

Okay. Okay. So I'm going to need the skirt, the shirt, and the hat. Actually, the shoes, too. And the bag, since it matches the shoes so perfectly.

14. Graphic Tee

You don't have to limit yourself to black dresses, though. Casual all-black ensembles automatically look high fashion by virtue of being entirely black.

15. Pretty in Peplum

Yes, yes, YES! I am all about that peplum top! I adore peplum anyway, as a matter of fact – the style is ideal for thick girls.

16. Black & White

All right, I confess – this isn't quite all black. It is all fabulous, however, so it still counts.

17. Sheer on Top

This looks almost charcoal, not black, but I don't care because the entire outfit is divine. Those pants, man. Those are awesome.

18. Accessorize from Top to Bottom

For example, add a fabulous hat (I have that hat!) and a statement belt. Stunning!
