The Bank Holiday weekend is often seen to mark the end of summer (er, what summer?) so we say lets celebrate the end of this dreadful season (more rain forecast), and enjoy the long weekend by donning your best LBD, or two. Wherever your weekend may take you, Team LBD has every outfit possibility covered…
Gorgeous Couture Bailey Dress in Black £172, Fiorelli Gold with Light Green Stone Bangle £49.95, Kat Maconie Velma Shoe in Black £260
With a mostly dry evening forecast for the United Kingdom on Friday, with only the risk of an occasional shower in some parts of the country, why not head out to a trendy bar with some friends? It is the perfect chance to show off a summery little black dress and with temperatures predicted to be in the high-teens, it might be one of your last chances before needing to layer up! We love Gorgeous Couture’s Bailey Dress, which has a simple but striking design, so would look incredible with statement gold accessories.
Kate Fearnley Buttercup Dress £160, Just Anna Sienna Shoe in Patent Coral £189, Bourne Amber Clutch Bag in Pink£89.10
The August Bank Holiday weekend is popular for weddings, so if your plans include seeing loved-up friends or family getting married and are stuck on what to wear, you can’t go far wrong with a little black dress. However if you’re worried that an all-black number will make you look too dismal (personally, we think it looks an uber-chic look) then opt for one with a pop of colour or choose a bright bag and shoes so everyone knows that you are celebrating.
Gorgeous Couture Rihanna Swarovski Dress £220, Zoe & Morgan Roxxx Earrings in Silver £295, United Nude Stealth Roman Wedge in Black £138
We also imagine many of our loyal LBD lovers will be going on an all-important dinner date, whether with a long-term partner or a new love interest. Either way it’s time to look hot! opt for a maxi dress with a plunging neck line to keep it exciting and summery. Team with gorgeous jewellery and shoes, and you’ll be giving the right impression to whoever your lucky date is.
Hedonia Cheska Dress in Black £65, Bill Skinner Ladybird Bamboo Stack Rings £55, Kat Maconie Cecilia Pump in Black £180
And what about a little black dress for that pub lunch we mentioned earlier? We suggest keeping it casual but classy by choosing an item that has a cute preppy style and is a bit looser than the bodycon you might have been wearing the night before! Pair it with a quirky ring, such as one by Bill Skinner, and some flats to complete your dressed-down daytime look perfectly.
But remember if the weather turns bad, you can always pull on a pair of tights (which you can buy here) and still be able to pull off your little black dress in style! Whatever you get up to, we hope you have a wonderful long weekend!
