Jealous, us?
We love reading Amy’s fashion expertise and seeing how she puts her outfits together for various events and occasions (check out our favourite L&L LBD looks below) so much that we asked her to give our readers some tips on styling your favourite LBD from day to night. Welcome to Amy’s LBD guest-post for LittleBlackDress.co.uk…
I love how a little black dress can go from casual to dressy with only the change of accessories. Every woman should have at least one go-to dress that works for any event (I personally have several!). Its perfect for a business dinner, an evening wedding, or for a night out on the town and just to prove its versatility I’ve picked my favourite day-to-night, boardroom to bar LBD outfit from LittleBlackDress.co.uk.
First of all, the dress. The Lipstick Boutique Jodie Dress is the perfect ‘go anywhere’ item and not only is this dress timeless, but also gives you a sense of confidence as it hugs your curves just right so you can take on the world!
Lipstick Boutique Jodie Dress, £30.
If you add a blazer and polished heels this outfit looks fabulous for a day at the office:
Ruby Ray Tweed Jacket, Was £130, Now £39, Moda In Pelle Judgement Court Shoe in Nude Patent, £65.95, Lipstick Boutique Jodie Dress, £30 (as before), Joy Everley Pearl Ear Studs, £49, Lagom Allegra Black Handbag, £89.
If you change up the shoes, remove the blazer and add a beautiful statement necklace you can wear this dress for a night out on the town too:
Urbancode Snow Fox Faux Fur Scarf, Was £35, Now £26.25, Aftershock London Jolie Shoe in Gold, Was £76, Now £55, Lipstick Boutique Jodie Dress, £30 (as before), Tatty Devine Hot House Leaves Necklace in Gold, £180, Aftershock Casey Clutch Bag in Gold, £56.
