At the 2013 Screen Actors Guild Award last weekend, it was a black and white affair, what experts call monochrome, to celebrate black and white movies. While some combined the black and white, some decided to wear the white alone and black alone. This reminded me of the classic little black dress also known as LBD. Do you have one in your wardrobe? Well, fashion experts advice that you should have one in your wardrobe and this is why.
>> The little black dress is timeless; always in style. You can always wear a 80’s black dress now and still stand out from the crowd. You cannot worry about being off fashion. It’s the classic choice, the classy choice, the sexy choice.
>> You can wear the black dress anywhere. I mean everywhere – to the birthday party, office, wedding, funeral, out with the girls, to a business meeting, et cetera.
>> You can easily accesorise it because black will match with almost any colour. Who would love that? Basically, you can make it look the way you want it to.
>> It will make you look slimmer. If you are one of the people who are self-conscious about your weight, then the LBD will definitely work for you.
>> Easy to clean. You will spill whatever but once you clean it people may not notice anything went wrong
How to accesorise it
>> The first step is choosing the right black dress. Not all black dresses will work because they will differ in design.
>> Choose a jewellery. A necklace statement would be great. The earrings and bangles should be chosen depending on personal style and the occasion.
>> Bold colours are great way of making the black shine out.
>> Jacket/blazer. You should have these in plenty as they will help disguise the dress for different functions.
>> Chose a belt according to your style but it should fit well.
>> The scarf always plays wonders to the simplest of dresses; make use of it.
>> The bag doesn’t have to match the other colours worn but it should blend with them. Remember the bag will pull a lot of attention. So, be careful when choosing one.
>> The headwear. Hats, bows, ribbons, flowers, hair pieces can be great accessories to give a different look to the dress.
>> The make up should blend with the colour of the accessories.
