Signature Style: The Little Black Dress [LBD]
There is nothing you can put on that is more effortless than a little black dress, at least in my book. Black adds instant sophistication, instant glamour, instant style as well as the instant slimming effect.
What's not to love?
I have a collection of LBDs ranging from this dressy chiffon number I wore to my mother's wedding, to simple black structured dresses for work to beach casual maxis that are effortless poolside or around the house.
If I were allowed only one item for my wardrobe on a deserted "fashion island" it would the classic little black dress. The beauty of the LBD is that you can dress it up or dress it down to suit your mood. The LBD never, ever goes out of style.
When concentrating on building a signature style, my advice is to consider your LBD options first.
Signature Style checklist:
Can you dress it up AND dress it down?
Is it comfortable and well-fitting?
Is it easy to travel with and launder?
Are the lines timeless rather than trendy?
I frequently travel in black and I often choose a black maxi or midi skirt for comfort. Personally, I would lengthen the top on these looks just a smidge these days, but the skirts are perfect for travel.
Despite spills or spots of a long travel day or two black never tells.
