Style Guide: The Little Black Dress
The Little Black Dress is perhaps the ultimate iconic fashion statement, and an absolutely essential element of any fashion-conscious woman’s wardrobe. Other styles come and go, but ever since the classic 1920s designs of Coco Chanel, the little black dress has endured as a timeless staple of the Hollywood red carpets and high street fashion alike.
The little black dress is traditionally a fairly short cocktail dress or evening dress. At their best, little black dresses represent cool, playful elegance and versatility. They’re generally best worn with quite subtle jewellery and accessories, as too much extra detail can detract from the chic simplicity of the design. Here are a few favourites from our catalogue…
The Laura Scott Chiffon Cocktail Dress is a perfect example of the little black dress look. Cutting off just above the knee, with a flowing skirt to really flatter the figure, it’s a beautiful design that’s also available in blue and berry for a more colourful appearance.
The Chiffon V-neck Dress is another little black dress to die for, with a distinctive floral design below the neckline that looks fantastic with a matching necklace and earrings. It hangs beautifully on all figures from petite to plus sized, and works well as a standalone dress or under an evening jacket or shawl.
A recent addition to our catalogue that’s already proving hugely popular is the AX Paris Bandeau Grecian Dress. This short dress is a daring choice that’s great for showing off your figure. Team this dress up with some killer heels to really get the party started!
