THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS(LBD)
More than any piece of clothing,the little black dress is definitely essential and the one piece item that will take you from day to night and practically anywhere.
It can go from the work place to an evening event or a simple night out with the girls with an effortless addition of accessories.
Little Black Dresses are always in style and are timeless,classic,chic and seasonless.
They come in a variety of fabrics – cotton,silk,chiffon,sequins and lace to mention a few.
Its a timeless trend because its cool,fresh and above all easy to accessorize so what’s not to love about it?
The LBD(as stylists/fashionistas call it) has been in the fashion books for years/decades now and its always a hit for anyone rocking it.
How to wear a Litte Black Dress :-
Throwing on a plum jacket will most definitely add some seriousness to your outfit which will make it perfect for an interview or work.
You can pair it up with a pair of pumps to give it a formal look for work or with flats to hit the mall for a laid back look or with a pair of girly metallic strappy sandals for the red carpet or a night out with the girls.
A simple necklace and earrings for the workplace so as not to look too dressed up or chunky statement neckpiece and a lovely bracelet for a date night.
A LBD is like an empty space waiting to be worked on so don’t be afraid to add a bit of colour here and there.
Add a splash of colour with a colourful blazer, belt,neckpiece,brooch,earrings,clutch or shoes(I don’t mean all at once so we don’t look like we going for a carnival) .
If you are fearless enough,you can go all black but you don’t want to overdo it so its not mistaken for a funeral outfit and if you do decide to go all-black inject some colour with your nail polish or your lipstick and that will just about brighten it up.. You can also pair it up with a lovely set of white pumps and white thin belt to give it a monochrome look.
To make a dramatic change from a work outfit to an evening outfit,take off your jacket, switch your black pumps for a pair of gold slingbacks and your black tote for a gold clutch and you are set to go (do not forget your bright coloured lipstick 😉 ).
So go all out looking fab in your Little Black Dress !!!
In any way you want to put your outfit together,always remember that beauty lies in simplicity and there certainly exists a thin line between tacky and classy.
