In the epic that is fashion, the Little Black Dress is a cult classic that has absolutely no match. And rightly so, LBD’s will never go out of style and make for a great wardrobe investment considering how they’ll always be a staple style statement. We’ve put together a couple of LBD options to bear in mind while picking your next LBD.
Short and chic – The very definition of the LBD; make sure you pick the right length and a chic one too. For evening soirees or dinner dates, a strappy or sleeveless LBD with either a gathered waist or A-line form would be ideal. For a casual get together a knit, button neck LBD would be great to sport.
Classic with a twist – Dating back to the 1920’s the LBD is a vintage style that has evolved through fashion over the years. The classic LBD would be in fabrics like silk, satin or georgette. Give it a twist with puff sleeves or embellishments around the neckline and waist. Opt for singular pieces.
Add some drama – Give this classic piece a dramatic look. If you’ve events where you have to dress up in costume like masquerades or Halloween, a dramatic LBD would be the perfect fit. For regular day to day affairs, give your LBD a little drama by adding a dramatic contrast colour border or pair it with bling accessories.
Custom fit – The best thing to gift yourself this year would be a true to size form LBD. Customized to your whims and fancies, this LBD can be your fashion project. Keep it sophisticated and edgy with your own inputs in a size that fits you right.
Floral – A dainty, delicate version of the otherwise sensual LBD; floral little black dress pieces are perfect outfits to wear during the day at casual luncheons or to the movies. Keep it simple while styling floral LBDs because they’re quite complete by themselves. Elegant footwear and unnoticeable accessories should do the trick.
Suit Up – The boss of LBDs, if you’re someone that rocks the corporate world, we suggest you do it in an LBD. Keep it classy with a knee length little black dress and pair it with a neutral or pop colour tones blazer or trench coat. Sky high heels will keep you looking killer while you’re on the go.
