No wardrobe is complete without the perfect little black dress. It's a style staple you can always rely on, no matter what the occasion. For this reason, we're encouraging you to dress to impress in your LBD.
It's a look that ticks all the right boxes - smart, sexy and sophisticated, you can't go far wrong with an LBD. But before taking it off the hanger, there are a few style secrets you need to know.
Here are our top tips for being LBD beautiful this season.
Before donning the LBD of your dreams, you need to feel beautiful inside and out. Style confidence starts from within, so don't shy away from pamper sessions with the girls in your pre-LBD preparations.
And it doesn't end there. Treat yourself to a well-deserved manicure and achieve those statement nails makeup artists love so much this season. A simple and stylish way to brighten up your LBD, matte reds, gothic purples and 60s- inspired pastel greens are the shades to watch out for.
The next step is to pick the dress. What look do you prefer? Sweet and preppy, or bold and out-there? One LBD never fails to impress? The classic skater dress.
It's a look that covers all bases. On the one hand it's perfect for the girly-girl. Teaming a high neckline and fitted waist with a fun and flirty flared skirt; you instantly create a gorgeous feminine silhouette.
For an edgier take, embrace leather panels or heavy mesh cut outs - maximum style without the fuss.
The finishing touches make all the difference to an LBD, so be sure to style it up, and cater to the look you're trying to create. For elegance and sophistication, keep accessories to a minimum. Subtle jewellery, light embellishments and simple strappy heels.
And for those who prefer to make a statement, don't hold back. Treat your little black dress as a blank canvas just waiting to be brought to life. Think excessive ornate necklaces, striking oversized clutch bags and beautifully bold colour block courts.
Whichever way, LBDs always get you noticed.
