The little black dress… a wardrobe piece that has managed to stand the test of time. If I was to suggest one item of clothing to invest in, a LBD would be on top of the list. The cut of this one is particularly chic. You can wear it over and over again to a huge variety of events and it will always look classic.

The important thing to remember is to chose one that suits your shape and style and it will soon become your trusty go to.  Mix it up with edgier pieces like a striking pair of heels or this amazing Dries Van Noten clutch, or keep it classic with black heels and a strand of pearls. LDB’s are fun because your personality can shine through on how you accessorise.
