8 LITTLE BLACK DRESSES

 

Whether satin and strapless or in laser-cut leather, never underestimate the power of the little black dress. Every stylish woman knows that the LBD works for any occasion that calls for chic.

The party season is fast approaching and I'm always on the lookout for the perfect little black dress, aren't you? So here are my top 8 favourites.

Put your hair up and your heels on! Show off your neckline in a swing dress with a casual up-do that flatters and frames your face, and get ready for some dancing!

If it's a more feminine and romantic look you're after, then you can't go wrong with a sweet and sexy, backless lace-trimmed dress and satin sash.

Ladies, meet your party hero. Let's face it, no matter your style, nothing says _'Let's Party!'_ more than a sequin dress. Olivia Palermo, the queen of Style, is super chic in this mini party dress.

When you want to look modern and a little bit edgy, think about wearing an asymmetrical dress. Asymmetrical dresses with diagonally sliced hemlines are one of the new “it” styles for spring.

Mini dress, hexagons and sheer puffed sleeves, who would have said this was going to be a match made in heaven?! Super modern + stylish design = creative perfection.

The sheer neckline is sexy but fashion friendly and adds some intrigue to your overall look. Plus, a style like this could be brought into the office with the right blazer but is also perfect for the next wedding or cocktail party you have on the books.

Whether you're looking to channel old-Hollywood glamour a la Taylor Swift or going for '20s-style Great Gatsby glitz, I can never say no to a tulle skirt and form-fitting heart bodice combo!

And finally, here's my favourite option for a classically polished look; an oversized bow cascading on a simple shift silhouette.
