That Little Black Dress (LBD)


I love how a simple black dress can create a multitude of different looks just with a little style twist. The Yours Clothing team challenged us to all take the same dress and style it our way. Knowing these girlies, I am sure that every look is going to be seriously unique.

I was torn between styling the dress for a night out and keeping is casual so I figured, why not show you how I would wear this little black dress both ways!

Leading such a busy lifestyle, I often struggle to find the time to get back home to change outfits so it's really important to find clothes that are versatile enough to be styled from day to night with the addition of a few items.

So here is my first look, the casual weekend day time look.  I went for a more urban grungy look by adding a plaid long sleeve shirt around my waist and kept the feet comfy with a pair of white high top converse.

This plaid top is from Marisota and is a fair few years old, but Yours Clothing love a plaid shirt so here is a alternative shirt option >>  Navy, Pink & White Checked Boyfriend Shirt << but they have so many on offer you can choose whichever colour tickles your fancy.

This outfit would work with any kind of shirt really, even a long sleeved denim shirt or denim jacket like this >> Denim Jacket  <<

Yours have a pair of low rise canvas pumps which would complete the look  >> Canvas Pumps <<

The trumpet sleeve makes it quite unique in it's own right, almost statement enough to rock on it's own but for my evening look I opted to accessorise it up.

Here's my second look, which is way more of an night outfit. This would be perfect for a concert or out for drinks.

I am wearing the "Seductive" harness from Vixen Curves which is still available from their website.  I picked a silver and black clutch to match the harness which is from Simply Be, again a few years old but any clutch would work with this dress. You could even go for a statement clutch in a bold colour for a contrasting look.

These lace up boots are from Yours too, they are sooooooo comfy. I have extremely wide calves so getting these boots to fit round them is a huge achievement.  The heels aren't high and the soles are cleated so they're super grippy.  You can grab yourself a pair here.

The dress itself doesn't have a lot of shape in the body, so I nipped in the waist with a simple elasticated belt.  

The trumpet sleeves are really cute and very on trend this summer. The upper sleeves of this dress are very snug, I actually had to size up in this dress to a 22, as the 20 was too tight on the bicep. By sizing up the dress fitted looser on the arm and there was definitely more give on the tummy area. The neck line of the dress is a V-shape, not particularly low either. The trumpet flares out from just above the elbow.

The length of the dress without any belts or anything tied around my waist comes to just above the knee on my 5ft4" frame. Adding a belt or anything of the like will cause the dress to rise up a little, so for my taller friends, perhaps consider going belt-less!!

I'm so excited to see how the ladies style their dresses, why not give them a cheeky little follow and perhaps you might be inspired by their looks.

I am really interested to know how you would style this dress too, why don't you show me?
