How To Find The Perfect Little Black Dress by 3 Ways To Wear

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

1) Cleavage

If you want to bring attention to your cleavage & chest area, choose a dress with a low V-neckline.

2)  Waist

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.

5) Arms

Whereas if you are looking to camouflage “chicken wings”, then pick a dress that has wider arms.

6) Hips

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.

7) Allrounder

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!
