When it comes to trans-seasonal wardrobe staples, you can’t go past the Little Black Dress. Why we love? The LBD offers a dependable, go-to look that can easily be dressed up or down, whatever the occasion. The key to any style is all about creating contrasts; for example, a short dress with a long boot or trench, or a longer dress with an ankle boot or cropped jacket.
We’re all about timeless classics that can last the distance. A good quality LBD can stay with you for seasons, and as trends change for how to style, the dress can remain your constant. We have made a list especially for you with different LBD looks and some how-to-style tips.
Look 1: The Trusty Slip
This look is all about clean lines and simplicity. Pairing a minimalist black slip with a bold-yet-sleek trench is a contrast we are on board with. The camel colour provides an on-trend classic, so an understated strap heel and clutch is all it takes to complete an elegant vibe.
Look 2: Retro Chic
The plunging neckline of the Ksubi black slip adds an element of effortless style to this more casual, street-wear feature. Denim jackets have made an incredible come back and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon as they are such a trans-seasonal fave. This look provides the perfect opportunity to rock some chic mini frames too, a trend that is still very much flourishing worldwide.
Look 3: Sorority Sister
Long sleeves worn as an underlayer is another tasteful way to keep your slip fashionable through the seasons. Different takes on the white shirt have been hitting the runways recently, but we still love the classic lines of this Country Road piece. Buttoned up gives an edgy take and compliments the bubble hem of the Aralia Dress by Karen Walker. Funk it up with on-trend ray bans and a patent pump.
Look 4: Working Gal
This season is all about the checked blazer. We love the tailored look contrasted with the more loose-fitting Aria Ruffle. The length of this LBD warrants a statement knee-high boot, and the Karen Walker shoulder bag elevates the look to give some ooh la la elegance to what we would call a perfect work ensemble.
