For the Day
The simplicity of the LBD means that it’s easy to wear on a day out, be it to the park or for a shopping trip. Be prepared for those evening summer chills with a denim shirt. Opt for casual trainers – because who knows where the day will take you? These timeless Converse bring casual-chic with the outfit. For practicality, We’ve teamed the look with large, oversize sunglasses and a beanie to hide bad-hair days.
This Primark tote bag is a stunner and is large enough to fit all your daily necessities.

For the Evening
Dress up your LBD for the evening with a touch of leather, head-turning colour and heels. We layered the dress with another timeless piece – the leather jacket which toughens up the otherwise feminine dress; perfect for the night-time. You can never go wrong with red, the accents of red through the bag and Rimmel lipstick gives this look some well needed sex-appeal.
We could never forget heels! These snakeskin high-heels immediately elevate the look; and the bling! The jeweled TopShop ring adds a touch of decadence.
