Why you can't go wrong with a black dress

A classic and timeless evening wear piece that all girls can reach for with confidence is the little black dress, or LBD as it's often known as. In my opinion you can't really go wrong with a black dress as it goes with pretty much anything, it's understated yet elegant and you can dress your look up or down depending on your event or occasion.

Accessorising is minimal

A black dress can often be worn alone with a simple pair of shoes and a bag. When I've been in a rush to get somewhere I often reach for an LBD and I've even worn it without any jewellery. In this look, I styled it with a pair of simple pearl earrings, my Hugo Boss watch and a clutch bag.

There's a dress for all figure types 

From petite to plus size, I think anyone can look great in a black dress and you can find one to suit your figure and style. I prefer a much more fitted and figure hugging dress like this one, as it's super flattering and allows me to walk with confidence.

Add your own twist to the outfit

I like to make each outfit work with my personal style and in this outfit I decided to go with a lace dress for an extra glam look. As the lace is so detailed the outfit didn't need much styling in terms of jewellery so I decided to keep it really simple.

An iconic red lip 

Black and red goes so well together. A classic red lipstick is all you need to finish this look off, and the colour really stands out against the black dress.

Do you have a favourite LBD that never lets you down?
