The little black dress is versatile. They are a staple in every wardrobe. They are timeless. They can take you from AM to PM (from the job to dinner/disco ) and they are can be worn in all seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter). The potential of the LBD is endless.
For my look today, I wanted a look that can see me through the day time sunshine + barbecue and also the night time wind + drinks. There was no better option for me than this long sleeve little black dress or LBD. I reached for it as soon as I opened my wardrobe.
This one has some fringe details which made the simple LBD edgier. I paired the dress with a black and gold necklace, an oversized clutch with rose detail and I finished the look with a pair of sandals with pom pom detail and ruby red lipstick. Don’t you just love an all black look with a pop of red ?
Talking about all black, I wore an all black look for a launch date here
Fashion TIP today !
When going from day to night in the same dress or outfit, pair your dress with a large bag of your choice for day time and inside the same bag, throw in your clutch for the night time. Large bag at nights can be cumbersome.
The other option is to wear or carry an oversized clutch to help you hold all your day to night essentials like your smoky eye palette, red lipstick, perfumes etc.
Finally, when investing in a LBD for the first time, it is best to go for one that has little or no embellishment, one that reaches the knee and the one that is not too tight (they are handy for day to night). For example day been an interview, night been a first date etc.
So tell me, are you a little black dress/LBD lover or you can’t be bothered by the hype. Let me know in the comments please.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I am always happy to see you here. Wishing you a lovely day and God bless.
Much Love, Mojisola.
