Why Little Black Dress is Always on Trend
A universal trendy weapon and a stylish classic, the LBD is always there when you need it. Dating back to famous combinations Audrey Hepburn used to wear, it’s a reliable piece you can combine with both patent heels and flip-flops, leather jacket and sneakers. You can spice it up for any sort of occasion, from a romantic night out, to a day out at the beach.
If you’re not sure how to add some life to your LBD, here are a few fresh styling tips you might find positively surprising.
If you’re in a need of a more offhand, yet vivacious style of LBD that you can wear day and night, go for a Baby Doll Shift or an asymmetrical hem. Going out with the girls – jazz these up with some shiny eye-catching accessories and the whole outfit will make you stand out from the crowd.
A walk down the beach, no problem. Perk your look up with a wide brim sun hat, sunglasses and a pair of colored or gladiator sandals and you’re good to go.
Up-to-the-Minute Formal Dress Cuts
The LBD comes in every possible form and design. Take into consideration the appropriate dress cut, as well as fabric, when you’re buying a LBD for a certain occasion. The dress pattern actually predisposes what the dress should be worn for. For instance, pick the tight fitting Sheath Dress for business meetings – it’s the best form of formal wear.
The in vogue BodyCon dress is the one that brings to light the best of the woman’s figure and it can be worn for formal nights out. A trick to achieve the perfect body shape when wearing these dress types is to put on shapewear. The body shapers come in various patterns, so you can pick the suitable one easily enough. You won’t believe how many celebs use this famous tactic!
Fresh Ideas for What to Wear on Top
It’s a humdrum opinion that the LBD is reserved just for evening events. On the contrary, pairing it with a modish printed bomber jacket makes it street style appropriate in an instant. In addition, you might top it with a chic leather moto jacket you wear so often with a pair of jeans. Or, if you don’t want your dress to be in focus, wear a colorful printed coat on top.
For the best downtown vibe, you can even wear an extra layer of a fishnet dress on top of your t-shirt-style black dress.
Playing it up with Chichi Accessories
All sorts of accessories can play a huge role when combined with a black dress. If you have a LBD with some colored embellishments, you can pick an oversized bold colored handbag to go with it. Or, you can opt for a classic head-to-toe black look – tailored to perfection with patent-leather loafers.
If you want to show your figure, add a belt around your waist. A metal accessory of this kind attached to a black dress is all the rage these days. A pair of Ray Bans and lace-up combat boots is another option for getting an edgy spin. When in doubt, just go for a statement colored crossbody bag – no mistake if you pair it with any kind of dress pattern.
Have a great summer and don’t be afraid to try out some new ideas this season. Hope some of these tips will come in handy, at least when LBD is in question.
