5 Best Little Black Dresses

Friday, 21 Jan 2011 02:18 PM

The LBD or the "little black dress" that Coco Chanel made popular is a singular item of clothing in a woman’s wardrobe that is as versatile as it is dependable. While it can be worn as a prom dress, a bridesmaid dress, for a date, or even to a business dinner, this evening or cocktail dress can be easily transformed into something vastly different with a little imagination and flair. Let us review a few styles of the short black dress.
Sleeved – Long or short, a sleeved black dress brings a certain feminine appeal to the entire ensemble. If paired well with high-heels and an eye-catching clutch, a sleeved black dress can turn more heads than most of its bolder counterparts!

– Asymmetrical hemlines add pizazz to a black mini dress. If you find the idea of a little black dress boring, then an asymmetrical hemline will make it instantly fashionable.

– A conventional black dress is always understood as something short and strappy. However, conventional does not mean uninteresting. A strappy short black dress can have necklines that define the wearer’s personality and body shape. Choose from square, boat, round, vee, or even halter necks depending on your shoulders, neck, height, and body shape. Conventional or not, you can never go wrong with a strappy little black dress.

– Tiny and petite defines the strapless LBD. Sexy and stylish, it makes an instant fashion statement that is daring and uninhibited. Add ruffles, pleats, or embellishments for that edge or just pair it with head-turning heels.

Off the shoulder
– The off the shoulder black dress spells one thing — chic. An off the shoulder black dress offers you the choice of length, but seems to work best by keeping it knee or calf-length. An innocuous string of pearls and some graceful accessories complement the intrinsic elegance of this look.
The options of how to wear the little black dress are endless. Nevertheless, whatever option you choose, it has to be according to your body type and comfort.
