According to Karl Lagerfeld, “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress”.
I fully concur with this statement. A little black dress (or LBD) is certainly a wardrobe staple that every woman needs to own. Most of us probably own many.
Recently, I have been asked by a few ladies about “How To Find The Perfect Little Black Dress?”.
The rule is simple: It needs to accentuate the positive features of your body, and camouflage the negative ones!
In the following I have compiled a little guide with different LBDs, so you can see what’s best for you.
How To Find The Perfect Little Black Dress
If you want to bring attention to your cleavage & chest area, choose a dress with a low V-neckline.
You can highlight a tiny waist by choosing a dress that’s closely fitted around the waist and has a slightly loose skirt part.
If you are looking to hide a tummy, pick a dress that has a looser fit and has some layering.
You can positively accentuate toned shoulders and arms by wearing a LBD with thin straps.
Whereas if you are looking to camouflage “chicken wings”, then pick a dress that has wider arms.
You can easily hide bigger hips and thighs by wearing a dress that has an A-line skirt. Make sure the upper part has fairly slim cut, otherwise you will look bulky.
Lastly, if you are looking to visually loose 3 kilos instantly, you can always wear a dress that has elbow length sleeves (or longer), is fitted around the waist, ends at the slimmest part of your knees (could slightly above or below) and has a little V-neckline. And oh, make sure to wear heels of course!
