Little Black Dress…

This week I got sent this lovely little black dress from Sainsbury’s to style up over the festive season.

A black dress is one of my wardrobe essentials, especially at Christmas. A black dress can go with almost anything..

Each year I like to invest in a quality and stylish black dress, recycling my old one. I like the feel of a new outfit. Perfect to clear those Winter blues. I only need one, as I will make it last me all the way through to Summer. Unless I see another one (or two) in the January sales!!

The good thing about a little black dress is you can style it in so many ways. Without it looking noticeably the same. Often I will wear the same dress, yet styled differently and my friends think I have had a new outfit. If you need a go to dress for an unplanned night out, or an afternoon shopping trip you cannot go wrong.

A few ideas:

For a night out at Christmas you can add bright coloured shoes, faux fur or lots of sparkles. An afternoon shopping trip is perfect for layering it up with a chunky cardigan and thick tights. Scarfs and statement jewellery can also make it look so different. Boots also, style it up perfectly.

About the dress:

It has sweet short sleeves and an oversized round neckline. A cinched waist and a shaped, figure hugging fit, as well as a tight ribbed effect to the soft material for a really sleek look. The thing I love most about this dress is that it stretches too. Room for lots of mince pies over Christmas!!

It looks great with my red stilettos and over size tartan wrap scarf.

Do you have a go to little black dress?

    It loooks really beautiful on you! I like the way you've styled it! To be honest, I don't wear an LDB that often (because I wear long black dresses so often for concerts) but I enjoyed wearing mine with a lacy Victoriana Sweater under it to warm it up (it is a skater dress style!) x
