LITTLE BLACK DRESSES TO SUIT EVERYONE
The little black dress is the ultimate wardrobe staple, and our collection of LBD’s will work for any occasion…
LITTLE BLACK DRESSES
ALWAYS IN STYLE
Ask any woman which item in her wardrobe she couldn’t live without, and we bet she’d say a little black dress. Enduring, elegant and - most importantly - easy to wear, it’s no surprise that little black dresses have been in vogue since Coco Chanel designed one in 1926. A regular fixture on the red carpet, the little black dress is simultaneously simple, sexy, on-trend and timeless, whatever the design. From office-appropriate shifts to statement evening sequins and gorgeous day-to-night designs, we’ve got a little black dress to suit every shape and style…
THE FIT & FLARE LBD
It’s easy to disregard the little black dress as a ‘safe’ outfit option, but not with our directional designs. For a new season buy that will work for the office and weekends, you need our slit front LBD. Demure but far from dowdy, the peek-a-boo front split elevates the flattering fit & flare design. Elbow length sleeves make it the perfect wear-all-year wardrobe addition.
THE RING BELT LBD
Update your little black dress collection with this season’s hottest design detail; the ring buckle. Yep, a flash of circular silver metal is the easiest way to cement your fashion forward credentials right now, so whether you wear our dress to the office or out to dinner, it’s guaranteed to get all the compliments. Try it with our red snake print ankle boots for an easy to wear statement combo. It’s also got pockets, and who doesn’t love a dress with pockets?
THE COLOUR BLOCK LBD
Black? Brights? How about both? Adorned with colour block panels, our on-trend LBD is the fashion equivalent of having your cake and eating it. Colour blocking is huge this season, and a statement dress is the easiest way to dip a toe into the trend - perfect for colour-phobes!
THE EYELET LBD
Classic – not to mention flattering – in shape, an eyelet trim to the collar, front and hem give our flared dress a fashion-forward edge. Basically, it’s the ultimate buy to make a style statement without even trying – no wonder it’s been flying off our virtual shelves. Think ankle boots and tights for day, then switch to strappy heels for evening glamour.
THE CROSS FRONT LBD
The beauty of a brilliant LBD is its power to take you from day to night with just a change of accessories, and our cross front number will do just that. The chic fold-back short sleeves and knee-skimming hemline make it modest enough for the office, but the V-neck and cross strap detail mean it’s interesting enough for after dark too. Style it with classic courts or knee-high boots for a smart day look, then amp it up for evening with our velvet ankle boots or strappy pointed courts.
THE LACE LBD
Want a little black dress that’s flattering, sexy, feminine and ticks off a major autumn/winter catwalk trend? You got it. Gothic lace dominated the catwalks this season, and our intricate circular embroidery puts a modern spin on the classic fabric. Fluted sleeves create a striking silhouette while the sheer top half and hem show a subtly sexy flash of skin. The sweetheart neckline is super flattering on bigger busts, and the nipped in middle will accentuate your waist. Just add killer heels and a slick of red lipstick.
THE STRAPPY LBD
Our strappy dress proves simple doesn’t have to equal boring. Great for curvy and petite frames alike, the structured fabric clings in all the right places them smoothly flares out from the waist to create a gorgeous silhouette. Being able to wear a bra under eveningwear is a deal-breaker as far as we’re concerned, so we’ve made sure the straps are thick enough to hide yours. Want in on a nifty styling tip? Wear a jumper on top to turn it into a flared midi skirt for day.
THE SEQUIN LBD
Thought sequins were only for the Strictly dancefloor? Think again. In our opinion, every evening wardrobe will benefit from a little bit of sparkle, and our sequin front LBD provides the perfect subtle hit. The classic empire line is a suits-all dress shape - the higher waistline emphasises the narrowest part of the body, and is great for petites as it creates the appearance of added height. It's also good if you’re curvier on the bottom as the A-line softly follows your curves. Finally, the floaty short sleeves are just the ticket if you like your LBD’s with a little extra arm coverage.
THE WIGGLE LBD
So called because of the wiggle the narrow hemline creates as you walk, our curve-clinging midi dress needs barely any accessorising thanks to the striking cut-out neckline detail. The figure hugging stretch knitted jersey fabric shows off your silhouette, but the midi hemline and short sleeves stop it being OTT sexy. Our tip? Invest in good seam-free underwear to ensure a streamlined look.
THE CUT-OUT LBD
The shift is a workwear staple, but we wanted to take it out of the office and into your off-duty wardrobe, so we’ve updated it with cut-out details along the shoulders and at the neck. Great for apple shapes, the shift will minimise your midsection by highlighting your shoulders and legs. It’s the perfect year-round dress too – wear now with tights and boots, then bare-legged in warmer weather. Still want to wear it for work? Simply slip a fine knit polo neck underneath for extra coverage.
