The Little Black Dress

Ahh, yes. The little black dress.

There's no question about it, every woman should own one. It's an essential, timeless piece for any wardrobe and chosen wisely, should last you for years. Perfect for any occasion, the little black dress can be dressed up or down. Wear it with a cardigan and pumps for work, a hot pair of open toe heels and jewelry at night, or sandals and scarf on the weekends. It's also perfect for fall and winter with a pair of boots.  There are so many ways to accessorize it, no one will ever suspect it's the same dress!

Here's a look at modern-day renditions of the little black dress:

Basic



Embellished


Classic


Structured


Casual


Ethnically Inspired

Every one should own a little back dress? Sounds more like a marketing ploy for a dress manufacturer. Ok, so everyone should own one, but not everyone can wear one. Next time you're at a cocktail party or special event, look around and see whom shouldn't be wearing what they are wearing.

A girl must always have the perfect LBD in her wardrobe. You can choose your perfect LBD to suit your size and shape. You dont have to be a skinny stick to wear one. More voluptuous girls can wear them too. The LBD is perfect for that slimming affect. Accessorise accessorise accessorise. The accessories you have used are perfect and give so many different ideas. The outfits are simply stunning too. I feel a little spending spree come on now I have some fab ideas. Many thanks

Roziani said...

Hi, I like the way you styled the LBD. For me, on a non creative day, I just go with the LBD.. I also recently wrote a post on it:

Gina said...

I have several little black dresses,
Even though they are mostly for special occasions but I like wearing them often. I have a cute one I'm wearing out tonight It is a lacy layered black dress with sheer black sleaves with a long zipper in the back. I will wear a silky black bra and matching french cut panties. I will also wear off black sheer thigh high stockings with strappy hi heels that have ankle straps. :-) I love the Oh so feminine girlie girl way It makes me feel when I go out side and the wind breezes against my silky undies. And I think my BF will like me in it too. :-)

Emma said...

Kaddiebear said...

zbsports said...

Those little black dress are definitely terrific...if only i can buy them all at the moment i will...

I was raised in an era (1960s) when every woman had an LBD in her wardrobe. But there was only one acceptable way to accessorize it: a long or short strand of pearls. I love that there are so many options for the LBD now: it can be dressed up or down, paired with a denim shirt, a cream jacket, a boyfriend cardi, a plaid cape, boots, sandals, Louboutins, scarves, necklaces... the possibilities are endless! Buy one good-quality well-fitting sleeveless LBD, and you'll get TONS of looks for years.

Little Black dresses are always in style. Choose a little black dress below or find a dress by figure shapes. Black cocktail dresses and black party dresses are timeless, seasonless favorites for parties all year around.

Classic, chic and seasonless- the Little Black Dress encompasses simple elegance like no other fashion piece. It can go from work to play with an effortless addition of accessories. It will make you feel beautiful and fashionable with a pair of stylish black pumps or casual flats.
