Styling Tips for the Little Black Dress

The classic little black dress is every wardrobe’s best friend. Just like a crisp white shirt, or a great pair of jeans; its a classic staple that will never let you down, no matter the occasion! We picked five different occasions and created five different looks, that all use the little black dress as the base. So whether, its date night, girls night out or weekend brunch the LBD has got your back! Our black dress of choice was this Alexander Wang short sleeve dress, its cheeky thigh split gives a sexy element. And the scuba fabric makes it super easy to wear any time, any where!
Girls night out
Give the LBD an edgy and tougher feel with leather biker jacket and knee-high boots. There’ll be definitely no messing with you!

The little black dress can work for the office too, give it a polished touch with smart jacket and neat pointed toe pumps. Our jacket of choice is a Chanel tweed jacket, trying a contrasting color, as head-to-toe black can be a little bit boring and dull.

Chilly Days
For those days when it’s a little chilly outside and you need to add
an extra layer over your dress. This trench and bootie combination is the
perfect solution, it's also great for rainy days too.
Add: a colorful wide elasticated belt, not only will it give you a
cinched-in waist but will add some interest
No, No:  a small clutch,  you need to balance out the look with a bigger
and more structured bag
Bonus points: accessorize with matching bracelets
Trench Coat - Burberry, Belt- Prada, Bag - Lanvin,
Weekend brunch
This look has all the relaxed vibes weekend dressing should have, whilst make sure you still stay ahead in the style stakes. Add funky edge with sneakers and khaki jacket.
Add: high top sneakers and a cross body bag: stylish yet casual
No, No: pointed toe pumps
Bonus points: fun sunglasses, they’re a great way to hide the effects of the night before.
