The essential LBD – Everyone needs one!
Everyone needs a LBD … in case you’re wondering (and shame on you if you are!) the LBD is the Little Black Dress. It’s a fail-safe and reliable essential for the upcoming party season. The LBD should be considered a blank canvas for accessorising – we recommend making these dresses a little more edgy with studs, chunky jewellery and statement shoes.
There are a lot of gorgeous dresses out there at the moment. This article is just about the simple LBD, but look out for upcoming articles which will cover the other styles of dresses out there! If you’ve spotted something fabulous, be sure to let us know in the comments box below. Okay, here goes …
Mini Wrap Dress – Isabella Oliver £89.00 – This little number encourages you to get your legs out, and we like that! Do it with style by adding some coloured maternity tights. This dress has puff sleeves, side adjustable tie and wrap detail. Cute.
Elegant Shift Dress – wondermummy £39.99 – The softly scooped neck shows off your décolletage without revealing too much. The clever side ruching allows your bump to grow without distorting the shape of this elegant shift dress. The satin tie adds a touch of glamour, and can be tied at the front, back or side. We would go for the latter. Don’t forget, for October only, you can get an additional 15% off this dress!
Exclusive Black Ruched Wrap Bust Dress – ASOS £30 – This is a soft stretch knee length dress with a square neckline and wrap-around front. It has ruched detailing and slim fit shape, and will help you feel very glamorous as you rock your bump.
Chiffon Flower Dress – Blooming Marvellous £45 – This one has everything we normally hate -ruffles, sequins and bows – but somehow, they work and you couldn’t get a more perfect party maternity dress! It has a beautifully embellished neckline, delicate flower corsages and a flattering tie-waist. It’s cute.
Shift Dress – Seraphine £38 – This is one of those items which we believe should be a base piece in your maternity wardrobe. You can layer it up for a day look but, importantly, dress it up easily with some glamorous heels and jewellery for that pregnant wow factor.
