Still, rue Madame still has some styling tips for you to make you look even more gorgeous!
Make sure the little black dress fits your body shape
By picking the right cut and fit, the slimming effect of a LBD can be enormous. The classic knee-length LBD can showcase your seductive feminine waistline, whilst the lovely A-shape LBD reveals your long and straight legs. Looking for a little black dress of different cuttings? Let’s see what Whistles, Vanessa Bruno, Sweaty Betty, Berenice offers!
Little black dress of different textures suits different occasions
Besides the silhouette, texture and fabrics should also be carefully picked as a high-quality LBD can bring you a super luxe style. The sheer silky LBD is undoubtedly elegant and nice-looking, a lace one can be tempting, whilst a cotton piece is suitable for some more casual instances, like poolside parties. Here are some good examples from Sea New York, Berenice and Hobbs.
Choose the right pair of shoes for your little black dress
The LBD itself is already drop-dead gorgeous, so leave it plain, don’t cover it, and never ever layer it with too many other pieces! Yet, I am not asking you to walk on the street with only your sexy little black tube dress on, here are some matching footwears from Arizona Love, Bensimon, Veja, Birkenstock and Sessun.
Choose the right accessories for your little black dress
If you really want to add something, a piece of fine jewelry should be alright. You can team yours with an eye-catching necklace or earrings. Don’t worry, the glittery piece from Whistles and Apede Mod won’t upstage your garment, they will just perfectly complement each other, bringing along an even more brilliant style for you.
