Talking of wardrobe staples, there’s nothing more classic and versatile than our beloved little black dress also known as, the LBD. Be it a brunch with friends, girl’s night out, office meetings or your hot date night, the LBD will be your fashion saviour. Today, we at Wonder Wardrobes bring you 7 chic ways to wear this life saving dress.
1. Add florals
Floral prints are considered staples in the summer and spring. so here’s how you can add a floral touch to your LBD outfit for a more summer/spring appropriate look. A printed blazer over your black dress and a belt is all you need for this look. the key is to not over accessorise or you might end up looking too OTT. Less is more. Add a pair of strappy sandals and you’ll be good to go.
2. Add a metallic belt
This one is a no-brainer. adding a metallic accent to a black dress is a win-win style statement. It will not only give you the appearance of a slimmer waist, but also add an extra “oomph” factor. Pair it with nude/beige pumps and you’re all set to rock your LBD.
3. Comfort is the key
For those chillier fall nights where you have an urge to wear your little baby, we have a solution in hand. Add a cozy oversized cardigan with sheer tights and a pair of black stilettos for that comfortable yet sexy look. Messy waves or a top bun would add a few brownie points to the whole outfit.
Color-blocking is so last season, but you can add a bright handbag to your regular LBD to make it stand out. Accessorise with a matching neckpiece for a more put together look. Pastels are totally in this season, so don’t be scared to experiment with corals and pastels.
5. Bohemian vibes
Coachella-inspired, this outfit is for those sunny days when you’re feeling a little bohemian. Bohemian fashion is about going all out with fringes, cut outs, flowy kimonos and lace details. Experiment with a few different patterns before settling for your signature look. Add a kimono and strapped flats for that effortlessly sexy look. Messy waves or fishtail braids will be your best friend for this look.
6. Street is the place to be
