Being the website for going out dresses we thought it made sense to find out which going out dress tops the must-have lists of some of the people behind LittleBlackDress.co.uk…
NATHALIE GIBBINS, EDITOR
Favourite going out dress: Aftershock London Arketta Dress Maxi Dress, £115
Why: Aftershock’s sparkling going out dress is the perfect way to show off your sexy side without showing off too much flesh. This statement full-length sequin number is sure to get you noticed whatever the season and will suck you in and stretch you out.
How would you style it: I’d let the dress do the talking and team it with low-key gold jewellery and simple high heels.

GEMMA PRESS, ASSISTANT EDITOR
Favourite going out dress: Lipstick Boutique Florence Dress in Floral Print, £75
Why: I am ready for spring now and nothing says spring like a floral print! I really like the old-fashioned ‘Nan’s curtains’ style of flower on this dress and the cut not only adds to the vintage feel but makes for a really flattering shape whatever your size.
Where would you wear it: I’ve got a family wedding coming up and I think this would look great with nude heels and a fascinator.

FRANCINE HEATH, FASHION WRITER
Favourite going out dress: Gorgeous Couture Two-Tone Bailey Dress in Apple Green, £166
Why: I’ve been looking everywhere for a go-to party dress with a touch of notice-me difference and this spring-ready dress from Gorgeous Couture comes with a little more style vibrance. I like the fact that this asymmetric design is a classic LBD from the back and a punchy apple green beauty on the front. And it features flattering ruching and pleats to the Italian jersey, creating an ultra-feminine silhouette. Love!
How would you style it: I’d team this bold, bright and beautiful colour with metallic midi heels, a perspex box clutch and a slick of pastel pink gloss.

JOHANNA DOREY, EDITORIAL INTERN
Favourite going out dress: Silence Beyond Syllables Navy Silk Digital Print Dress, £145
Why: I love how it makes a statement with minimal effort thanks to the throw on vest design. The magic-eye print and thigh high hemline play into the current 60’s vibe and would look great with a pair of androgynous flats.
Where would you wear it: I would wear this retro design to a gig or for a night out with all my old uni friends as it’s perfect for dancing and jumping about in; just make sure you team it with a pair of full-coverage pants!!

WESLEY BANNER, ECOMMERCE MANAGER
Favourite going out dress: Emma Louise London Feather Ombre Shift Dress, £188
Why: I love how Emma Louise has used the colours on the classic shift shape, so lovely and summery! From hair dos to dresses ombre is having a real fashion moment and this on-trend style is the perfect way to look SS13-appropriate in a flash.
How would you style it: I recommend adding a touch of the tribal look with stacked up chunky bangles and either sandals for relaxed chic or killer heels in peach or pink to really emphasise the dress’s striking colour way.

JEN SULLIVAN, ECOMMERCE INTERN
Favourite going out dress: Fount Studded Shoulder Cut-Out Dress, £45
Why: A classic LBD with a SS13 twist this cut-out detail mini dress is my go-to Saturday night look. The peek-a-boo detail is quite high so a lot more flattering than most dresses of this style and the studded shoulders and exposed zip at the back give it a tougher edge.
Where would you wear it: This dress belongs on the dance floor at one of my favourite clubs teamed with shoe boots and bright red nails.
