We all love a little black dress. Slimming, effortlessly chic and perfect for every occasion, no wardrobe is complete without your favourite (or two) LBD. But as the weather warms, many are looking for a more summery variant to the sexy LBDs of the winter. Enter the black maxi.
Offering the fun, flirty girliness of a flowing skirt, cool enough to wear on the beach with a bit of protection for legs you’ve forgotten to shave, the maxi gives so much and asks for so little!
Choosing the right dress to show off your figure and be comfortable always seems like a mammoth task, but thanks to the variety of LBDs available, you should be able to find something perfect for you. The LBD has a long and interesting history, and the popularity of black in a woman’s wardrobe certainly isn’t going anywhere soon. The only thing to consider is how to accessorise your perfect dress.
A Pop of Colour
One way to easily bring life into your favourite black outfit is with a pop of colour. Whether it’s a colourful scarf, bright cardigan or some red heels, a splash of brightness can bring a whole new lease of life to an outfit you’ve worn thousands of times before.
Bold Statement Accessories
Grab a bold choker necklace, oversized earrings, chunky bangles, belt or another accessory to bring cool fashionista vibes to your feminine black maxi dress. A pair of statement shoes with gold or silver to match your accessories can also go a long way to updating your outfit.
Hair and Make-up
It doesn’t have to be all about the accessories: a bold hairdo or interesting make-up can take the attention away from a dress you’ve worn before, just leaving the onlooker with a sense of style and purpose only possible with a great ‘do and black dress.
Grab the perfect leather or denim jacket and black maxi dress at AX Paris to create a cool and edgy yet feminine look, perfect for bringing a summery favourite into evening attire without changing a shoe.
One of the benefits of a black dress is that nothing clashes with it. Take full advantage of this as an excuse to bring out your favourite animal print shoes, bag or coat.
