London Calling

We are excited to announce a new collaboration with Closet London, and we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to explore the spring trends of florals, spots and using bold colours confidently... Oh yes, and we shine the spotlight on the not-so-humble skater dress.

The catwalks have been full to bursting with new ideas on how to wear fashion this SS17. But being bold can be a little daunting. Team LBD are pleased to be working alongside the London-based brand, Closet, and here we talk you through some pretty amazing designs.

 

Seeing Stripes

This elegant dress was spotted in celebrity circles recently. With stars like Grace Geally, aka Anika on FOX's hit hip-hop drama, Empire, wearing a black, striped spaghetti strap dress. Stripes create drama but are softer, and we’re loving lady-like skater skirts!

Style tips:

Think of a softer way to style stripes - such as these three key looks from Closet.

Or Go Metallic 

We are loving the polka dots of these two dresses in gold and black; below. One has a tulip style hemline and the other with much more fabric in its skirt helping to cinch in the waist. Or try a similar feel which is toned down slightly such as this gold bodice dress with a plain black full skirt.

Multi florals

Freshen up your style with these spring looks. Perfect for both day and night.

We're loving this amazing floral tunic which would be perfect with both barely-there heels or flip flops - Mojito anyone?

Or what about the gorgeous floral ruffles of this day dress - the delicate "Ra-Ra" style skirt is very reminiscent of the eighties vibe. Again team with trainers or flats for daytime casual chic or add wedges for night time elegance.

This Closet classic is a must for day-to-night-time glamour. Stunning with simple sandals in nude and definitely a go-to for warmer days.

And we’re loving Lady Victoria Hervey wearing a pretty, scalloped hem blue skater dress to the Ashley Isham show at LFW recently.

BLOG-SKATER

We love this abstract square skater or opt for turquoise with these two pretty dresses.

And these floral creations are perfect for both day and night with an added bonus feature of a tie back and the luxe feel of satin. Accessorise with metallic heels... We love this Jessica Wright silver pair and team with an evening bag! And just style hair in a loose up do - playful without being too formal and with neutral make up hues to avoid clashing with your outfit. Lipstick: we love BareMinerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lipgloss.
