611-594-FSome people complain about this time of year because it is after all of the holiday and New Year’s Eve fun, and there really is not anything exciting happen. Plus, it is cold and dark outside. However, when it comes to fashion, there is a lot happening. Now is when designers are releasing their spring 2016 ad campaigns and giving us the first looks at their new collections. We have seen some glimpses at & Other Stories‘ latest lingerie range and we just saw some of Topshop‘s spring 2016 campaign featuring the flawless Karlie Kloss. Now, Addition Elle have announced that they are collaborating with blogger Nicolette Mason for their upcoming collection.

Addition Elle and Nicolette Mason are working together on a cocktail dress collection for the plus size brand’s New Noir range. The seven-piece collection includes different dresses that will work for any time you need to get dressed up and feel a bit fancy. The collection could easily work from date night to a wedding. Nicolette says:

“The idea behind the collection is that whether you have a date night or you’re going to a wedding, or you just have a day where you want to feel beautiful and go from work to weekend feeling great, there’s a dress in the collection to satisfy that need.”

The pieces in the collection also reflect Nicolette’s personal style. There are versatile black dresses, fit-and-flare shapes and feminine touches like lace and sweetheart necklines.

Take a look at some of the pieces:

1. A-Line Dress ($170, Addition Elle)


If you are tired of wearing the same old black dress, try this one for a change. The print is striking, but the A-line dress is still very versatile.

2. Fancy Mesh Dress ($195, Addition Elle)


Forget a LBD, how about this LPD? This hot pink dress just makes you think of spring. The sweetheart neckline with contrasting fabric is pretty, then your eye goes down to that floral hem.

3. Cape Dress ($170, Addition Elle)


With or without the floral crown, this white dress is gorgeous. We have been seeing more and more of these cape-slash-dress silhouettes, and this is definitely one of the prettiest versions we have seen yet.
