Phoebe Couture by Kay Unger Semi-Sheer Sequin Dress

Why We Love It: Ever since I first came across Kay Unger's new contemporary line, Phoebe Couture (sizes 18-24), I've had a bit of a crush on all the pieces. They are chock full of detail, totally on trend, and don't sacrifice or hold back design when it comes to the plus-size market. Case in point: this sheer, cappuccino and black, sequin dress, with a Grosgrain tie at the waist and sexy V-back. I adore the unusual pattern of the sequins, and how it packs just a hint of edge into the super-feminine silhouette.

Wear It With: A killer pair of heels will do the trick, but if you'd like to take a riff on the subtle edginess of the dress, try pairing it with a pair of ankle boots.

$250, Saks
