If there's one thing I know about my generation, it's that we are all broke AF.
If you're like me and have runway taste on an H&M budget, you have to get creative with your wardrobe. And if you're plus-size (also like me) it's even harder because a lot of the "trends" don't trickle down in your size.
One thing we ALL have in our closets is a little black dress. Mine is from Torrid and here are three ways I'm styling it for the spring-y weather we've been having in NYC.
Look #1: This is easy, practical, and gives a fun nod to the '90s.
I didn't have to think too hard about this look. I grabbed a denim button-up and tied it around my waist and plopped a beanie over my hair. Who has time to do their hair every day? Not me.

Look #3: I'm not much of a party person, but I'll take any reason to get dressed up.
I channeled my inner Instagram baddie by grabbing a silk duster and pairing it with a simple black choker and strappy heels, which makes the bold look a little more delicate and lingerie-inspired.
