4 Reasons Why Every Woman Should Have A Little Black Dress
Jan. 21, 2020
If you don’t already own one, just by reading the title of this post, you should go and buy your own little LBD RIGHT NOW, because while
it's out for delivery, I’ll be talking you through why owning one (or many) is the best investment you’ll ever make for your wardrobe. But I’m
sure you’ve heard this many times, little black dresses are the staple of any successful wardrobes, it’s timeless easy to work into any event
from day tonight.
Whether long, short, one-shoulder or with a unique detail it’s just one of those things that don’t lose style and you’ll always look put
together with minimal effort; that’s totally my jam when it comes to fashion and style. I’ve recently seen Wearhouse’s LBD shift dresses
collection and I am so in love, especially when they look like this cute PEPLUM HEM LONG SLEEVE DRESS, you can wear this up with
a nice pair of heels and statement earrings or down with white trainers and a pony, and if you choose the in-between it's designed to be
functional and works in just about any occasion- cocktail parties, evening occasions and even to go to work. See this is why every woman
needs a little black dress, multi outfits in one!
There are many fashion basics that women are always advised to have in their closet. From standard black or nude heels to at least one
black leather jacket, certain wardrobe essentials need to be in your closet.
Of all the must-haves, there is the one you cannot do without. The infamous, little black dress.
Why did you ask? This is why.
1. It is versatile
The little black dress is a powerhouse all by itself. It can be worn to different occasions like dinner, to work, a funeral, the list is endless. If
you’ve had a busy day at work and you have a small gathering with your friends later, your whole outfit changes when you swap your work
heels for fancy gladiators and replace your blazer with a leather jacket.
It’s hard to find an outfit that you can use in so many different ways so the LBD really comes in handy. The best part about it is that they are
so easy to accessorize so you don’t even need to do too much. It looks good with different colors so you are free to play around with belts,
scarves, necklaces, bags and other accessories. What you do with it is entirely up to you.
2. It’s an emergency wardrobe essential
Another reason why we love the LBD so much is the fact that it can save you when you have nothing to wear. And let’s be honest, as
women we never have anything to wear despite having clothes overflowing from our closet. There are many times when we have
unexpected occasions and nothing to wear. You might be called for a sudden party at work or some random occasion that you haven’t had
time to properly plan for. You might even be required to attend a certain meeting that’s not too formal or too casual either. If you have the
black dress in your closet, you’re lucky. You can quickly accessorize it and instantly be ready for your occasion.
3. It flatters everyone
We all have different preferences. When it comes to the black dress, however, you’re less likely to find someone who doesn’t like them at
all because they look good on everyone. Furthermore, it’s still essential for women of all ages. When you reach a certain age, you might
start avoiding some colors and prints but with the LBD, you can never go wrong. If you are curvy, it looks great too because black
complements your curves. If you are petite, it’s also very flattering. This goes to show that it is suitable for every woman.
4. It’s a classic piece
The little black dress is a timeless outfit. Other styles and designs come and go but the LBD remains. It has been recognized from the
1800’s, 1900’s and all the way to current times. We owe it to one great designer who transformed it from the standard mourning dress to
a fashion statement. Coco Chanel managed to bring out the versatility of the LBD into a wardrobe staple. Today, the dress comes in
diverse designs and silhouettes to fit every woman’s need.
