Styling the LBD: Three Ways

 

BRIT STYLE:

All hail the LBD *little black dress. A girls promise to the most versatile piece in her wardrobe…or at least mine anyway. I’ve always been someone who in her indecisive ways reaches for the essential LBD on a night out and more recently even during the day when it’s a little warmer outside. This black bodycon dress from NICCE is probably my favourite of all the LBD’s I own; the strappy sleeves, the mini style and the way it hugs my body.

So for my first look I wanted to channel ‘Brit girl’; the type of girl who’s undeniably British and isn’t afraid to show it. With the Kate Moss-esque baker boy cap; which I am obsessed with at the minute, as well as the remastered gingham trench coat (you can’t deny the trench is extremely ‘Brit girl’) it makes for the perfect transitional outfit for days when it’s in between weather. Just add a large umbrella when it rains and you are good to go; I say when because we all know how unpredictable British weather is!

FESTIVAL STYLE:

Now when I say ‘festival’ I may be on about my dream ‘fashion’ festival or Coachella as some may call it but I feel like the LBD can be altered for whatever occasion. Just throw on an extra large kimono, some statement earrings and a pair of white cowboy boots for that ultra Coachella look. With the outfit I think the contrast between the tight fitting dress and oversized, midi length kimono works well together and creates an outfit that you just want to unapologetically dance all day, and night in.

I’d also 100% swap the boots for wellies If I was planning on wearing this outfit to a British festival…we all know mud seems to be a key factor for those summer festivals. What I love about festival outfits is the real commitment you take to wear whatever you want, which is why I’d feel comfortable turning up to see my favourite bands in this look.

TOUCH OF RED:

Red has been one of the biggest colour trends this summer and is making it’s way into autumn/winter too so choosing to pair my LBD with none other than a red oversized denim jacket and red lace up heels for that ‘going out’ look, makes for the perfect way to ease into the red trend, yet not forgetting about your classic black dress.

More recently than anything I’ve become a little more ‘casual’ when going out of a night for drinks with my friends. So to capture the perfect combination between smart/casual It’s nice to have a simple dress to throw on and pairing it with a denim jacket to make the outfit seem more effortless, which is something I’m all about these days.

    Absolutely in love with all three looks here- your style is amazing! I like how you've done a fashion advice/ inspiration type post rather than the standard OOTD.
