Finding an outfit for a girls’ night out can be a nightmare. Is the dress code smart-casual or full-on glam? Should I try and resurrect an old outfit that hasn’t been seen on Insta for a good few months, or am I feeling splurgy and wanting to purchase something new? Are we thinking dresses or jeans? Heeled boots or super high stilettos? For me, the answer is simple. You can always rely on an LBD.
LBDs are functional, they’re super easy to wear. They can be styled with a range of accessories and come in all shapes, sizes and designs. They’re also always on trend, so pulling one out of the wardrobe that hasn’t been worn for a good two years is like finding a dress fresh of the catwalk. I just love the simplicity of an LBD, and IMO you can never have enough.
This dress is from Oh My Love London, available at Topshop, and is an absolute dream. A little twist to the usual LBD, with its lace overlay and high neckline, it was the dress of choice for my birthday night out with the girls last weekend. I just love how glamorous it is, and teamed with some nude heels and clutch, I was ready to hit the dance floor.
What’s more it has a really gorgeous back detail, or lack thereof I should probably say. I’ve never really taken the plunge with a backless dress before, but I felt that the higher neckline and full-covered front of the dress meant I could flash a little flesh without feeling too exposed. I really love how this added a little extra to the piece, even if I did nearly freeze to death as it was so cold and stormy! (The things we do for a fab night out, eh girls?)
So next time you’re scouring online retailers for a new party outfit, why not play it safe and opt for a little black dress? A timeless, classic piece – you’ll always be hitting outfit goals when wearing one.
Lots of love. xoxo
