Rock the LBD in style!
5 different ways to wear it

The little black dress or the popular LBD came into existence in the 1920s when it was first invented by French designer, Coco Chanel. Fast forward a couple of years and in 1961, the LBD was rocked by Audrey Hepburn in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Inspired by this classic beauty, the dress became a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. No dress is as versatile and sexy as the little black dress.

From work to an afternoon brunch to a night of dancing…the LBD can go a long way. It always looks good on everyone. Moreover, the best part is that you can always dress it up or down depending on the occasion with the right style of shoes and other accessories. Here are some ways on how you can rock the little black dress.

For the work ‘chic’ look: Pair your LBD with a basic blazer or a jacket and you are all set to go to work or for a formal interview. You can wear a classic colour such as black or white or opt for more fun colours such as yellow and blue. You can also wear a simple belt to inject a more formal look. Complete your outfit with a leather handbag and a pair of wedges.


For an afternoon shopping date with the girls: Heels are definitely a no-no if you are out for some serious shopping. So pair your LBD with some sneakers or ballet flats. Add a scarf to give that layered look. You can go for neon colours to add some fun to your day look. It is also essential to keep your hands free while shopping, so opt for a cross body bag rather than a tote or clutch.


For a dinner date: There is no substitute for the little black dress when you are going for a dinner date with that special someone. Pair it with some head turning accessories to add that extra oomph to your look. Instead of the regular black stilettos, add a dash of gold or red shoes to make your dress stand out. It is always fun to experiment with some colour and add a flirty and sexy colour to your look. Another way to add that ravishing look would be to add a touch of leather by pairing your dress with a leather jacket.


For a rocking party: Go all out with your LBD for a night of crazy partying. Wear your dress with a statement neck piece or make it flashy by adding layers of necklaces along with some bling earrings. For that extra bit of dazzle, wear a neon belt. Complete the look with red pumps or stilettos and a metallic clutch.


For a wedding: Wearing the little black dress is totally acceptable for a wedding. It is chic and fashionable. However, you should try and stay classy with some delicate jewellery and block heels as you are not really going for a party. Don’t forget to pair them with some killer shoes though.
