The LBD has had a makeover!

There is , so they say, nothing as iconic as the LBD ( the little black dress). However, in recent seasons,navy was the new black then grey was the new black and white was the new black....but this season black is the new black and it has come to claim it's throne in the form of the perfect black dress that is nothing, if not original. Forget plain old shifts, think bows and lace and ruffles and see through details that are chic and effortless. Steer clear of Lycra and anything too clingy, this is not the look you want to achieve. Think more Audrey, less Kim K!

It sounds cliche but a LBD is a great investment and a wardrobe staple that will bail you out of your style conundrums, because when in doubt go with the LBD. You can be creative and focus on your best attributes and of course, you will need the LBD's best friend :a great pair of shoes.

With the holiday season in full swing in the world of retail and fashion, there is a myriad of choices and I strongly believe that getting the best you can afford is well worth the expenditure as this is an item you will wear again and again , so long as you stay away from obvious trends.Keep it classic with a twist and make sure it represents you...after all it is you wearing the dress not the other way around!

I have scoured the net and found some great pieces that I hope will inspire you!I have tried to find different price points so that every budget can be catered for.

Under the 100 Mark!
