Phew….What a week it’s been, in a good way. I hosted my first ‘Style Social’ evening that seemed to go really well (so I’m told), we’re already planning a second event for early next year. The planning and prep kept me fairly busy so sorry for the lack of posts this week, but it’s also inspired today’s blog on LBDs.
At the event we were talking through ‘Wardrobe Essentials’, these are the basics that every woman should own to make your wardrobe work harder, and of course included in the list is a little black dress.
If you want to know what other items are included in the list take a peak at the vlog below.
You might think that an LBD should be kept only for special occasions, you know, a dinner party or Christmas shenanigans, but I believe the LBD can be a multifunctional piece of your wardrobe. What’s the point in having an item of clothing that only gets an outing once or twice a year?
One of the LBDs that caught everyone’s eye at the event was a Balamin-esq, blazer dress with pearl button detail from ASOS (click link to go directly to it) and it’s easy to see why. This dress can be worn as intended, but you could layer over leather trousers or jeans, and even wear as a blazer with a roll neck or rock tee underneath….That’s the kind of multifunctional I like!
So here’s a few more LBDs that got me feeling that all black everything vibe, some with a touch of the Christmas twinkle but most wearable, in one way or another, all year round.
