Final Touch: How to get your LBD date-ready
Karl Lagerfeld wasn’t just talking about playing it safe when he famously declared, “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress.” Sure, the LBD’s reputation as the most versatile garment in fashion history has contributed to its fall from favour among style extroverts, but rocking a LBD is less about stealing the show and more about owning the night… especially if you’ve got a hot date.
Donning a little black dress means being dressed for any adventure that comes your way, whether the night leads to a last-minute trip to Paris or a 4 am breakfast at a greasy spoon diner. The best date nights are always open to possibility.
To get the perfect date night look, opt for a little black dress that’s as timeless as it is on trend. Embrace the 2013 grunge revival, which has a more sophisticated and feminine aesthetic this time around, by investing in a long-sleeved slouch dress. Don’t forget the most important thing … sexy shoes! We will opt for a nice pair of knee high ankle boots.
And now, accessorize:
Accentuate the girly grunge vibe of the look with a Shirley Manson-meets-Liz Taylor necklace, like this thick black chain featuring bold, rectangular gemstones.
Add edge to your ensemble with a two-tone black clutch that mixes matte with glossy, complete with an optional black chain strap to match your necklace.
You could top off your look with 4.5-inch sleek black high heel pumps adorned with metal bar details for ultimate rocker chic sexiness instead of the boots. Whether you end up at an underground concert or in a private balcony at the opera, you’ll be ready for wherever the night (and your date) takes you.
