The understated little black dress — it’s timeless, elegant, and fabulously feminine — it’s the perfect outfit for the night. With an endless array of fabrics and designs, there is a Little Black Dress (LBD) for every style of woman.
Now wearing a simple black dress with no shape or distinguishing features can be extremely plain and boring and we don’t wish that upon anyone. Here’s what you need to do to avoid looking drab when you really need to be looking deliciously fabulous.
Traditionally worn for mourning the death of a loved one, the LBD has come a long way from the Medieval times. From its iconic center-stage moment in Breakfast at Tiffany’s
to being adopted by major fashion houses, fashionistas, Instagram influencers, and style icons like Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham. The little black dress has survived it all and come out on top.
Highlight your assets. If your arms are what you favor then opting for an off-the-shoulder V neck dress will flatter your figure and help you look your stylish best. If you are insecure about your arms and want a dress to minimize this feature, try wearing midi length sleeves that finish just above your elbow. This creates a toned arm appearance.
For those with delicious pins, you want to show those long limbs off. Slip dresses are your go-to dress, with a shorter hemline and mini options there are plenty of short dresses to choose from. If legs are not your strong suit, opt for mid-thigh tighter option. This directs vision to your toned calves and keeps your dress firmly in place, creating an appealing curvy silhouette.
