“One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.”
― Karl Lagerfield
A little black dress is and always will be a wardrobe staple for me. It has been a classic choice for a night out of any kind for decades, and for good reason as it is a difficult look to go wrong with.
Whenever I am wearing an all-black ensemble, I like to add a pop of colour to stop the outfit looking too boring, and for a black dress, that pop of colour always has to be red for me, as it is the perfect way to create a classic, timeless, Holly Golightly style going out look. A red lip is my favourite beauty look, and one that I go back to time and time again( just make sure you have someone who will tell you if you have lipstick in your teeth) and adding red nails and a colourful clutch bag is the perfect way to incorporate that pop of colour into the outfit.
However, what I really like about a black dress is that it creates a blank canvas for your makeup, as you can be creative and try out whatever look you want. For example, it is easy to look slightly edgy and cool if you have a black mini dress with a smokey eye or dark lipstick and caged heeled sandals or to go simpler with natural makeup, a light pink lip and a pair of barely there heels.
So many of my friends could wear the same black dress and yet they would look completely different in it because of their unique style and different interpretations of the outfit, which is what I love so much about it! I hope you remember to always have a LBD in your wardrobe!
Here are some LBDs I have picked out:
