Ready to see what the LBD looks like? (Bonus: it’s also available in plus sizes!) Just scroll on down to check it out, as well as three fashionable ways to wear it this season.

Outfit Inspiration

If you like this stylish and budget-friendly frock, then you’re going to love the outfits we put together for inspiration. Read on to find out three stylish ways to wear this week’s Fabulous Find:

Outfit #1: Between Seasons

Walmart lbd, printed trench, ankle boots
Product Info: Dress- Walmart, Coat- Target, Earrings- Aldo, Shoes-, Tights- ModCloth

We’re right in the middle of that somewhat tricky transition time between winter and spring: the temperature is still chilly, but retailers have started to roll out warm-weather clothes. So what’s a girl to do? Combine items from both seasons, of course!

Start by pairing the LBD with a pair of patterned tights and black ankle booties. Next, layer on a printed trench coat. Trenches are a classic springtime staple, but this floral print one adds a fun and modern vibe to the outfit. Accessorize with a pair of geometric stud earrings to complete this look.

Outfit #2: Minty Fresh

Walmart lbd, denim jacket, statement necklace
Product Info: Dress- Walmart, Jacket- H&M, Shoes- ASOS, Necklace- BaubleBar

Another casual way to wear this dress is to pair it with a trendy, yet classic denim jacket for a cool, spring-appropriate look. Add a pair of pointy-toe flats for a stylish and comfortable aesthetic. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a mint and silver statement necklace.

Outfit #3: Edged Out LBD

Walmart lbd, leopard print pumps, box clutch
Product Info: Dress- Walmart, Clutch- Forever 21, Belt- Nordstrom, Shoes- Nine West, Ring-  Metropark

Dress up this frock for a fun night out by pairing it with some on-trend leopard print pumps. A gold studded belt not only helps to define the waistline, but also adds an edgy vibe to the look. Last but not least, grab a structured black clutch and accessorize with a jewel-toned cocktail ring.

    I heard about this line of dresses at Wal-Mart. I haven’t been into one to check them out, but I think I may have to make a trip.

    I would wear this dress with these Madden Girl sandals and the denim jacket pictured in #2 and I love the mint necklace!

    @Sarah- Just so you know, these dresses are only available online. Don’t want you to make a trip for nothing! And ooh, I like those sandals a lot– I’ve been looking for a cute pair of neutral wedges!

    I like the dress, but I probably wouldn’t get it. It need a little more “oomph” in my opinion. If I did, I would add studs around the collar or something.
