Fashion | Not So Basic LBD

Hi dear, welcome to my blog again and Happy New Month!

Today’s post is about a black dress, for short, LBD.

I guess we’ve all heard/read about this wardrobe stable called little black dress that can be dressed up and down for different occasions.

This is a wardrobe staple every lady should own, i hope I’m right? lol. Have you ever thought about getting the not so basic LBD? Well, keep reading for more.

This is a free-flowing gown which would probably look fitted on someone bigger than i am but i decided to use a gold belt so it can clench on my body and it looked pretty good.

I decided to style this dress with a black perplexed heels, even though i wanted to use a gold heels but well, *man proposes and God disposes* and as for the bag, i just threw in this cream colour bag because i had run out of options. What do you think though?

Gone are the days when black dresses were worn strictly for funerals. As a matter of fact, a lot of people nowadays prefer wearing black to other colours and i find that attractive.

To me, the not so basic LBD is a black dress that’s out of the regular, just like the one I’m wearing. Its a free-flowing gown with silver studs.

When buying a black dress, I suggest you pay attention to the little details it has, such as the sleeves, neckline, slits, and in this case, silver studs.

• You can decide to go for a dress with exaggerated sleeves, ball sleeves, etc.

• You can also choose between a round neckline, a u-neckline or off-shoulder, as the case may be.

• And as for slits, I’m not much of a fan but if you love this, then a badass slit would be perfect.

Black dresses are not meant to be boring, neither are they meant to look too simple so i suggest you pay attention to all these (I’m open to your suggestions though).

This outfit can be dressed differently and worn to church, the mosque, if you want, a wedding or social function, depending on the individual.

What’s your opinion about black as a colour? Do you own a black dress? How would you style a black dress, or in this case, LBD?

Please don’t forget to like, comment, share and subscribe to my blog, I’d really appreciate that, thank you.
