LBD's in London

When it comes to the iconic garment that is the little black dress, I personally think Karl Lagerfeld sums it up best: “One can never be over-dressed or underdressed in a little black dress.” This particular shoot took place in London and what better way to hit up the town than in this timeless piece? Whether styled up or worn in its simplicity,  you can never go wrong with an LBD.

A little trick that I do with a number of dresses I own is cinch them at the waist so that they are sleeker and more form-fitting. This ultimately makes the outfit look more polished, and I especially love doing this to LBD's.  A simple black belt does the trick for me here, however it’s quite easy to be more extravagant with belt choice and accessories in general if you feel like playing things up even more. One fantastic quality about a little black dress is that its base can serve as a "blank canvas", making it incredibly versatile and adjustable to your own personal style.

For this ensemble, I felt that the brown leather of my jacket added a cool, downtown feel to it while the matching Louis Vuitton bag added more of a classic touch. Just like the little black dress, the signature LV monogram is a print that will always be in style. With all of these touches and the shades, the look is more daytime appropriate. Take off the jacket and the sunglasses though and you’ve got yourself an ensemble perfect for a night out on the town. Regardless of the occasion, rocking a little black dress is a move sure to keep you looking classy and fabulous.
