Little Black Dress


When talking about basics the Little Black Dress is a must, but it definitely isn’t a case of one size or style fits all. No worries, we are here to give you some tips to help you find the right dress for you and your figure.


You will want to find the perfect dress to show off those slim pins and flatter your bust. This funky little number by Keepsake is the perfect LBD for you, with cinched waist and fabulous laser-cut detailing to draw the eyes to those great gams. We have accessorized with a statement necklace worn high, making sure to keep the focus away from that tricky midsection.

You will want to accentuate your dainty upper body and slim waist. This great dress from local boy Jason Matlo’s collection is perfect, with its sleek and elegant fit. The statement bow draws the eye up and creates balance.

Whilst good things do indeed come in small packages, petite ladies can afford to go big… with the LBD anyway. This boxy framed dress from Jason Matlo’s Babe collection would look great on a petite figure, but make sure not to wear a look like this too long, as it will go from terrific to tent-like in the blink of an eye.
