There are some undeniable rules in life and fashion that go without saying. For example, a pair of high heels is the secret to instant confidence and superiority. Red lipstick is every girl’s must-have makeup item. Or that body shape matters.
But none of those rules come even close to one ultimate fashion rule :
Every lady needs her LBD
Think the iconic Audrey Hepburn or Coco Chanel in their classic black dresses. Heck, even Karl Lagerfeld swears by it!
By definition, a little black dress (LBD) is a black evening or cocktail dress, cut simply and often quite short. But you’d know you have found the LBD of your dream when you refer to it as “ one that simply never fails”.
It’s the same little black dress that you wear for the umpteenth times to a wedding as well as for running morning errands to your casual hangouts. It’s not an exaggeration to say that we can’t live without it, because it is that crucial!
Styling an LBD is simply our most favorite thing to do, so without further ado, check out these 3-in-1 styles we cooked up for you :
Look #1: Tough and Posh
Calling all rebels, vintage lovers to demure ladies, layering your LBD with a rugged leather jacket is a smart move that you have to at least try once. This chic pairing only gets better with some comfortable yet feminine footwear, an easy sling bag, and some matching accessories. Perfect for your party/festival or rocking moments, this OOTD even works for your professional agenda on Fridays!
Look #2: The Overachiever
LBDs are made the same reason stilettos are. They make a powerful presence statement, so it’s time to utilize your LBD in the work field. Put on your trusty pumps, waist belt, and that ready-to-conquer pouch, plus little accessories for some bling. Make sure your LBD is just the right length to give you some extra confidence you already have!
Look #3: Daydreamer
On the days when you don’t feel like your best self, put on your LBD and watch as your creativity soars. Simply layer it with a soft long in a neutral color and put on your good ol’ sneakers. A bumbag, backpack, or sling bag will also work to your favor as you strut in comfort with our look right here.
