It is a known fact that in the fashion industry trends come and go, but one dress stands the test of time, season after season; the LBD (Little Black Dress). What is it about this magical dress that becomes a must-have addition to every designer’s collection? For starters, the colour; Black. A colour that can define and shape to flatter every girl’s body as well as cater for almost any style. An above-the-knee feminine ‘little dress’ combined with this fabulous colour, the LBD is every girl’s wardrobe essential. Perfect for any occasion, the LBD has made an appearance on perhaps every red-carpet event, runway and party ever. Here are a couple of my favourites this season;

A street-chic LBD by Marc by Marc Jacobs from A/W 2010. Although it’s from the autumn/ winter collection, this dress is perfect for the summer as well. The gold zip detail adds both an urban-chic feel as well as a touch of grunge glamour and you can enhance the look with a pair of Ke$ha style boots and chain cross body bag or tone it down with a some simple gladiators and a sun hat.

A classic Stella Mccartney LBD from the Winter 2010 collection. With its silky, satiny feminine feel, this LBD is designed to make you look stunning. Paired with a jewelled oversized clutch bag and some heels, Mccartney’s dress is glamorous enough for any evening out.
