LBD…Need I Say More?

Every woman needs a Little Black Dress in her closet!  Black is a color that is flattering in all skin tones, body types and hair colors.  It is slimming and appropriate for any occasion.  Black has the power to make you feel confident at any age and should be a staple in any fashionista’s closet.  You can’t go wrong with a Little Black Dress!

Finding the perfect LBD for you is crucial!  Let’s start with your height.  If you are petite in stature, the length of your LBD should not be below your knees.  Keeping the length above your knee will make you appear taller and make your legs look longer.  Petite girls should always pair their LBD with stilettos!  This elongates a leg and equalizes the height difference between you and all of your tall friends.  Girls that have the height advantage can pretty much pull off any length LBD, but be sure it is the right fit and cut for your shape, or it can have an unflattering effect.

A perfect fit can make all the difference in the world.  If you are fuller figured, try to get an LBD with ruching around the waist to cinch your waistline and give you that hour glass shape.  A nice cap sleeve or bolero can take that flattering look the extra step.  Go with a skirt that has a little flow, this way you can hide the area that most woman hate, the hips!  No matter what size you are, always make sure your LBD is tailored to your body.  Finding the right LBD for your body will have you feeling confident and ready to dance the night away!  Nothing is worse than the right dress on the wrong girl.

Accessories are essential!  The great thing about the LBD is that it serves as a blank slate for awesome accessories.  Anything can work with black.  It all depends on what kind of statement you want to make.  You can go glamorous and wear rhinestone embellished stilettos with an awesome matching clutch.  Or you can go subtle and wear nude patent leather pumps with a set of diamond stud earrings– a classic look that never falls short of fabulous.  Whether you want your accessories to be fun and flirty or simple and classic, pull the whole look together before stepping out on the town!

Little Black Dresses are everywhere!  They are available at all different prices and in a variety of styles.  With such a wide variety, there is no excuse for not having an LBD in your closet.  It is a timeless piece that you can wear for years to come, so get out there and find the perfect LBD for you!
