Top 5 LBDs
Shop Black Dress
Ever since Victoria Beckham became the most stylish mother of the groom ever in her killer lace slip dress, we’ve been hankering for something lacey. And this dress is satiating our cravings. The barely there straps, lace trim and side slits are really talking to us. One to wear all summer long. Thanks for the inspo VB.
If recent pleasant weather has brought on the familiar panic about heat-appropriate dressing, we’ve got a secret to share with you. Get an LBSD (little black shirt dress). A dress that will see you through every occasion this summer, even if the hot weather isn’t your favourite climate to dress for. All hail the power of the black shirtdress.
OK, so there are sexy dresses. And then there’s this dress. The Bardot neckline is elegant and timeless, off-the-shoulder sleeves are still big news this season, and the midi bodycon silhouette is a winner. Wear this to a black tie wedding and you’ll risk showing up the bride, or wear to a party this summer and leave all the other guests jealous that they didn’t wear an LBD too.
Asymmetric necklines have been seen on some of the world’s most stylish shoulders over the last few seasons, and this bodycon dress offers a new take on the trend. With one sleeve and one shoulder that aren’t on the same arm (confusing, we know – but v chic) this is a perfect example of a creative silhouette getting the LBD treatment.
If you swear by maxis, then you’ll need this black one in your wardrobe. The ultimate throw-on-and-go staple, this one has a front button fastening and ties at the waist, so it’s almost a shirt dress, but not quite. Wear yours with a pair of leather gladiator sandals and you’ll be good to go: straight from your office to the rooftop bar.
