What’s an LBD?
LBD stands for Little Black Dress. More specifically, is the kind of black dress that reaches above the knees. This item has remained fashionable, timeless and versatile through the decades. Which means that everybody should have at least one in their wardrobe.
Each year, haute couture designers trust the LBD. Bottega Veneta is one of them: they brought to the catwalk several dresses with asymmetrical cuts for their 2022 Spring/Summer collection.
So here are five LBDs in different cuts, so you can find the one that best suits your style and body shape – let us know which one is your favourite!
5 foolproof LBDs in different styles
- Frilly black dress
- Knitted black dress
- Pleated black dress
- French sleeve black dress
- Shirt dress
This bohemian style is perfect for day outfits. Those with frills on the shoulder area will fit you nicely if you have a triangular body shape. They will balance your figure in a flattering way.
To achieve that total boho look this winter, combine it with a chunky knitted cardigan and suede boots and bag. If you want to go the extra mile, complete the look with a fedora for extra elegance.
A must for colder days. The ribbed knit LBD is invading every shop now that winter is here. These types of dresses flatter hourglass-shaped bodies and more or less any type of body shape. For a casual look, trainers and a down jacket are the best option. A small purse with details in gold will add a chic touch to your outfit.
If your body shape is an inverted triangle, this is the dress for you. The pleating will balance the volumes of your silhouette. This Christmas, mix it with a buckled belt, leather ankle boots in black or burgundy and a white maxi coat. Your look will be complete with a clutch purse and tear-shaped earrings.
The straight-cut dresses with french sleeves is a timeless classic. It flatters most body shapes. Furthermore, its simplicity makes it easy to combine and accessorize for every occasion. Wear it to the office with a tartan check blazer, kitten heels and a crossbody mini purse. Or, you could create a laid-back look by switching the blazer for a biker and the kitten heels for a pair of ankle boots.
If your body shape is rectangular or hourglass, this is the dress for you. Those that tie around the waist are a fantastic choice, as they enhance these silhouettes. For women with a smaller bust, those with patch pockets on the chest are even more flattering, as they bring volume.
Pull off a streetwear look by combining it with a black jacket, western style ankle boots and a khaki purse. The perfect combination of colour and accessories for an easy everyday look.
