Fundamentally Fabulous - The LBD

14 September 2013

Perhaps most famously worn by Audrey Hepburn, this is the dress that can be transported through time, and today you could be forgiven for thinking that the original Givenchy as worn by Hepburn had come straight off the runway from the ready-to-wear collections of New York Fashion Week 

This staple holds its own in the style stakes.

Pair it with a great stiletto, a handbag and a string of pearls and you are office ready in a flash; once the clock strikes knock off o'clock, with a quick change of shoes, and a piece of statement jewellery you and your LBD are ready for the night.

Choose a classic cut and it's almost impossible to get this wrong, even for the most "style" challenged amongst us. If you like to take a few more risks and draw on your creativity when it comes to your wardrobe, the styling options are endless.

In terms of getting it right for your body shape, some of the elements that you will need to consider are length, cut and shape of the neckline and shoulders and whether your best option is to go strapless or to choose a style with a sleeve. Check out this post from the The little black dress to help you make the best choice (be aware that gaining such knowledge may result in the necessity of a shopping trip...)

Finding the perfect LBD will leave you feeling nothing less than chic
