Following on from my three-post collaboration with TOBI, I’m so excited to share with you the second part, featuring this gorgeous little black dress. If you haven’t seen the stunning lace-up bodycon dress from the first post, you can check it out here!
One of the most iconic wardrobe staples is the little black dress, which is why I had to choose this one. If there’s one dress every woman should own, it’s the LBD. I own a couple of black dresses, but both designs are not as simplistic as this one, which is why this one caught my eye. The square neckline is such a popular trend in the fashion world right now, and I can see why! It gives such a flattering look across the chest, especially if you’re like me and have a smaller bust. I put this dress on and instantly felt sassy and confident, which is ultimately down to the style and fit of this dress. The soft and stretchy fabric hugs your curves in all the right places, and it gives such a flattering look. Who wouldn’t want that?!
I was a little unsure when choosing this dress, as I know that these kind of dresses can often be quite thin and see-through. I’m sure I’m not the only one to have bought something online, and it looked completely different in person, right? Thankfully, this was most definitely not the case with this dress, or with this brand. I was honestly shocked by the quality of their dresses. This material is thick, which means you don’t have to worry about it being see-through. Another thing I love about this little black dress is the chic, thin straps, which can also be adjusted – just like the dress in this post. They’re slightly different in the way they can be adjusted, but they’re quite discreet, and I think it’s such a great feature. There have been many times I’ve gone to buy a dress that fit me in the body and length, but the straps were too long, and couldn’t be adjusted. It’s such a simple feature, but it’s a really important one, and could be the difference between purchasing a dress or not.
The little black dress is such a timeless, classic look, which can be worn day or night. It’s not only one of the most versatile items of clothing you could own, but you can wear any of your favourite accessories with it, and know that it will look amazing. As this dress is basic and simplistic in design (which I LOVE), I decided to style it with a denim jacket and grey lace-up heels. The denim jacket looks so good with this style of midi dress, as it keeps the look quite casual, yet the heels add that touch of glam – without being too over the top. I wanted to keep the colours in this outfit quite minimal, not taking too much away from the gorgeous black dress.
This is the second of three posts in collaboration with TOBI, so stay tuned to my blog this week to see the last stunning dress. You can see the first one here. The final post will be up on Friday. See you then!
