The beauty and elegance of a little black dress is why it has become a staple in most wardrobes and a dependable ‘go to’ when you are unsure of what to wear. It also has the amazing ability to some how deem appropriate at the unlikeliness of events (yes even your child’s footy final match LOL).

The solid black makes it a perfect blank canvas to play with. Whether it’s to highlight one’s natural attributes, to put a spot light on an amazing shoe, a daring necklace or even a pop of bright lipstick. My obsession with the LBD started a long time ago and since then I have a collection amount that is a little embarrassing from beautiful chiffon numbers to tight fitting, low cut body cons it is without a doubt I am obsessed. How many LBDs do you own?

If you’re needing another Little Black Dress to add to your collection look no further than these selections that are also matched with shape recommendations and are available to buy now. Please note the shape recommendations are just a guideline and other shapes could work in the below dresses.

The Delicate Sparkle dress available by Sass and Bide adds volume around the bottom half so is great for balancing out an inverted triangle and also adds curves to a Rectangle (tomboy) shape. It’s on sale too for $720!

My recommendation for an hourglass (also works well for a pear shape) is the Sacha Drake stretch cap sleeve dress. Adding a belt will highlight a tiny waist whilst the stretch fabric will accomodate your hips and ample bust.

The Maura dress by Alex Perry is perfect for a pear shape and happens to be currently on sale for $525. The exaggerated sharp shoulders will add balance to a larger hipped girl with narrow shoulders and the stretch fabric will accommodate that ample bottom.

Apple shapes look best in V necked dresses to elongate your torso and highlight your busty assets. The Cacey dress by Leona Edminston also has ruching around the tummy area to flatter your mid section. It’s also on sale at the moment for $132.50! Bonus!

I bought the above Sacha Drake dress maybe 8 years ago but the cut is such a classic that it is still a best seller and still a current fave in my wardrobe. Recommended for an hourglass and apple shape although could work on other shapes too. The stretch fabric is very forgiving and I just love the beautiful neckline!

Enjoy your LBD!
