The Little Black Dress (LBD)

Everybody in this world knows whats an LBD! "The Little Black Dress"
According to fashion historians, the origins of this classic dates back to 1920s designs of Coco Chanel and Jean Patou. Almost a 100 years, but the LBD remains to be a classic wardrobe must-have throughout, regardless of season, occasion, country, fashion phase, etc. The patterns and textures and shapes and drapes may be many but the basic concept remains the same.

The Little Black Dress, owing to its long lasting ability, versatility, affordability, accessibly and the neutral colour, is indeed the safest bet for just any women in the world!! You can take it from day wear to evening wear depending on the way you style it. I found my perfect LBD at the Forever 21 stores. Its the perfect length, fits snugly, the lace detail gives it that feminine touch while the "A" hemline makes it so cute! My accessories include a cross ring-bracelet and my cross ear cuffs, both from Forever 21. Now here's the exciting part - this complete outfit is worth just INR 2000! Amazing isn't it?

  2. No woman can do without a LBD. My idea for a Perfect LBD would be styled with a red bow, embellished halter neck, sleeveless and should be accompanied with a vibrant red belt. Bold contrast of colours to ensure gazes of admiration. :) :)

  4. My Idea of the perfect LBD-

    When i think of a perfect LBD the very first thought that strikes my mind is
    a saying by Karl Lagerfeld “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress”

    So moving ahead , my idea of perfect LBD is all about a dress that fits me like a dream and gives me that high five elements which speaks volume of femininity.

    1- The material should be something which is comfortable for all time and occasions.

    2- The cuts , structure of dress should compliment my slim figure and it should hug me from the right places and wrap around me in style. i prefer something gathered/fitted from my waist to get that perfect shape of the dress.

    3- My best buddy, my perfect LBD would be something around knee length and that can be flowed or Lacey , something more bold, fresh and young :)

    4- LBD is a versatile pick that can be a good choice for office, home, party, evening outing and many more so i would really love it if it's some thing stylish yet sophisticated that speaks of my personality.

    5- To be precised it should be a sexy sleeveless, knee length dress with a sheer back and high neck. waow !!! i just said that all !!

    Styling and Accessorizing my perfect LBD-
    Styling is something that totally depends upon the place and occasion for which i am dressing up so there are some ideas that i dreamed of-

    At work- I would love to create the outfit which is simple.

    I will starting LBD with a plain black pumps and simple ear-rings. Also a blazer can be an adding element to create more formal but stylish look
    Will prefer a bun to get that organised look.Make up will be nude and minimal. A watch to accessorize it.

    At Party /Evening out- I would love to glam up my LBD with bold and fresh neon look , which includes
    Accessories- A statement neck piece, Finger ring and a soft and feminine bracelet. (will add a pop up shade of neon pink for it)
    A stylish neon pink pair of peep toes/gladiator for footwear choice.
    Hairs- Soft curls and open hairs
    Make Up- Smokey eyes, Pink Lip shade and a Natural styled skin.Nails styled according to accessories.

    There are many other things in my mind but it would be a never ending story of LBD as they never goes out of fashion so Just like a perfect fairy story, a perfect LBD is a treasure to heart. Thankyou!!

    My perfect idea of LBD is to dress to the minimal when i carry my LBD. I prefer to carry my dress in winter with stockings and boots with smoky eye makeup to give that perfect and sexy look.
    Second Style is to carry my LBD with some gold accessory like necklace and gold cuff to give them the antique and look.

    My idea of a perfect LBD is a simple A line dress with no frills. I would anytime go with a classic LBD as it gives me a chance to play with accessories. I usually pair it with metallic gold accessories (neckpiece, cuff, earrings, etc) , a classic black bag and stilettos and hair tied up. I finish it off with red lipstick with winged eyeliner.
    This look never fails.

  13. My choice of LBD would be a very versatile one. A boat neck in the front and draped layers at the back,3/4th arms and length till the knee - the kind Hillary Swank wears in PS I Love You. Here's how I would style it in different occasions :
    Day Wear - Casual
    Worn with black wedge heels, hair left open and a studded shoulder bag. My accessories will include multiple bracelets. Make up will be lip balm and kohl lined eyes.
    Day Wear - Office (formal)
    Hair straightened and tied up in a high pony, crystal ear studs, pointed toe black heels with straps, a watch on the right wrist and a tech accessory. Makeup would be nude.
    Evening Wear - Party
    Here I would wear preferably a multi-layered chain. Hair would be left open and wavy, black smokey eye make up with ankle length sky-high boots.Black nail paint and maroon lippie completes the look.
