The presents are wrapped, the cards are written, the Christmas pud is stowed in a kitchen cupboard and the only aspect of the upcoming festive season not yet taken care of is your frock.
You might have read our blogs offering great suggestions and advice for party purchases including party separates, mannish tailoring and perfect party accessories, and decided to take the tried-and-tested route to party glamour, and opt for a Little Black Dress or LBD. Whatever type of LBD you are looking for you will find it here, at Little Black Dress.co.uk, at M&S, at Debenhams, at Boden or, for plus sizes (i.e size 16 and upwards) at Navabi.
One of the things to cherish about the LBD is its versatility, especially if you choose one in a fabric that isn’t too “party”. So if yours is in Ottoman, jersey or even leather, you could wear it to the office and with a deft switch of jacket, footwear and handbag and the addition of some serious bling, you are ready to party!
Wear to work and then dress-up LBDs
For such an apparently simple garment, there are a lot of variants when it comes to choosing your LBD. Things to consider include the fabric, the neckline, the sleeves and, to throw a sartorial spanner into the works, the colour, because not every woman looks great in black. If your colouring is anything like Cyndy’s, and black makes you look like a corpse, you may prefer your LBD in navy or chocolate, i.e, a Little Navy Dress LND or a Little Brown Dress. Read on…
This season there are fabulously covetable LBDs in gorgeous fabrics, notably lace and fabric embellished with jewels and sequins.
LBDs with notably noticeable necklines
LBDs with ‘specially sensational sleeves
The anything but black, Little Black Dress
Sometimes dark colours just don’t work for you. It doesn’t matter whether you choose classic black or even the navy and chocolate-brown options, the dark tone may make you may look drained and tired. This is where a gorgeous silk or embellished scarf in a fabulously flattering colour or a stunning statement necklace can cast their magic spell and give you a glow.
Do you, like Jan and Cyndy, own several LBDs (though in Cyndy’s case they are brown or navy)? If so, tell us their stories, where you found them, which special occasion you wore them for…
