Why an LBD never goes out of style

Hi there!

LBD0005

When it comes to dresses, the little black dress (LBD) is an absolute wardrobe staple. We all know that an LBD is the perfect dress for a night out, formal event or a cocktail party. Today, a little black dress is not just for evening parties (thank George for that!). You can also wear it during daytime and I think every girl should have one in her wardrobe. Here a few reasons why une petite robe noire never goes out of style..

An LBD..

    • ..comes in different styles, lengths and textures. Think of side slit dresses, skater dresses, halter dresses, shift dresses, long/short sleeves, lace and so on. Decisions…desicions..
    • ..is suitable for almost any occasion. Whether you are having brunch with friends, going to class or work or having a family gathering, they are all suitable! And you know what? I even think you can wear an LBD to a wedding party!
    • ..is the perfect item you can wear from day to night. In other words, you could easily dress it up or down. Running errands? Pair your LBD with some kicks and off you go! A bit chilly? Wear a denim jacket or a bomber over your dress. A romantic date tonight? Change your look by simply changing your shoes.
    • ..is easy to combine. LBDs are so versatile and since it’s black, you can combine it with any colour you like.
    • ..flatters each and every body type so anyone can wear it. You can easily highlight (or hide) your assets.
    • ..can be worn at any age. Whether you’re sweet 16, 25, 30 or fashionable 40+, you’ll still look great in that little black dress!

In my outfit today, I’m wearing my own LBD (I’d rather call it a long black dress here). I absolutely love this dress as it has a side slit detail. I’ve already worn it multiple times and it’s one of my favourite LBDs.

How about you? Have you found your perfect little black dress yet?

    Lovely look! I love Mango so much. It’s too bad we don’t have too many in the states. I actually find that Mango overseas is sooo much better too. I much prefer the stuff they carry over there. :)

    Omg, you are just perfect, Vivian! The LBD you are wearing is exactly what is missing in my closet, lol. I am sad it’s sold out at Mango, but I hope I will be able to find something similar this summer. Thank you so much for sharing and have a great day!

    You look so pretty in that dress Viv! Love that you’ve paired the dress with those elegant flats. I have quite a few LBDs in my closet too. Must be some of the most versatile wardrobe items. This summer I have this thing for wrap-dresses, mostly because the fabric doesn’t crinkle, so I can bring them for my city vacations without having to worry about ironing:)

    • Vivian June 29, 2016 / 11:06 am

      Thanks Mitz! I would love to see you in your LBDs! I’m sure you’ll look gorgeous! Regarding your wrap-dresses, that’s so handy! I should invest in a wrap dress too since I hate ironing hahaha!
