A beautiful dress – be it a strappy yellow sundress or a sequinned, sexy cocktail number – has the power to put a little va-va-va-voom back into your life. A dress that looks fabulous on you when you zip it up, that highlights your best features, has the ability to help you get your groove back.
Ain’t that the truth.
But the best dresses are the ones that are not only flattering but versatile.
Which is why we’re crazy in love with summer’s new basic, the LRD. That’s Little Red Dress. This year, the LBD has been kicked to the curb. It’s time to add a burst of colour to your wardrobe.
Want to try it out? We’ve found the ultimate version for you – and, better yet, it’s on sale for $49.95 until tomorrow.
First let’s drill down into WHY this dress is so fabulous. For starters it steps up and does the hard work for you. Strategic ruching across the hips and waist nips-in your tummy and holds you tight in all the right places. But what’s really clever is the subtle tulip hemline which creates the illusion of longer legs. What’s not to love about that?
When shopping for your LRD, look out for a simple silhouette that doesn’t have anything too statement about it – this will allow you to reinvent the dress over and over again.
A black clutch and sparkly earrings for cocktail hour.
Ankle boots and a black jacket for lunch dates.
Your styling options are, quite honestly, endless. If you’re too modest for a mini, throw on a loose-fitting long black cardigan for a little extra coverage.
