Nothing says 'glamorous' like the little black dress(LBD) and of course, the little white dress(LWD)! 

If you've been on the look out for feminine pieces that are timeless, effortless and have you looking the part at anytime, then you need either or both dresses.
The Lbd and lwd are usually simply cut and fall between a mini and midi length. The lbd for one, has been a style dominating piece from as far back as Coco Chanel's designs in the 1920's. The lwd is a lighter option that has scored big on doing the same as the lbd.
Both are elegant, easy to glam up and a total must-have for a working closet. They are a perfect direction to go when building up a capsule wardrobe.

Still need convincing ? well, here are more reasons why you need the lbd/lwd:


Both dresses come in an array of beautifully cut patterns and styles that offer countless options for all body shapes and silhouettes. 
From peplum and ruffles to round and sweetheart necklines, the variations on these dresses make it an easy pick for your closet.

Stylist Bonus Tip: To get that slimming effect, go for the lbd or pick a lwd with black trimmings at the waist line or parts you seek to conceal.

Guess what?!  The dresses don't decided when you wear them, you do.!  Both dresses are literally perfect for any event. cocktails, black-tie event , the office or brunch with friends? yes! They'll have you looking uber chic and classy in no time. Quick fix, right?!
The key idea is to dress for the part. Jazz up either dress with a blazer, kimono or pumps . You can also ease the look with a pair of  mules or go sporty with sneakers!

Because both pieces offer a clean and buildable canvas, they can be easily paired with other to create gorgeous ensembles.

  • To accessorize, pair with dainty pearls or diamond earrings and neck pieces. Don't forget your statement handbag or clutch . Scarves are also perfect to complete a polished lbd/lwd moment.
  • Cinch with a belt and layer a blazer on either dress for a power look. Take off the blazer to enjoy a breezy evening out with Friends or a dinner later. A more stylish option is to drape a kimono over your dress choice.
  • Pumps or a strappy heeled pair of any colour would add a great accent to the entire look.
  • To get that smart look, go for a pair of your favourite sneakers.
