A perfect TLC for any fashionista wardrobe is one or more LBDs. Before you get puzzled with this acronym spaghetti, no suspense for deciphering upfront that Little Black Dress (LBD) is one of the foundation fashion attires any style siren should possess. Even during this festive period when parties galore and you are constantly stressed trying to figure out which dress to wear on which occasion, your favourite LBD can come to rescue any time. In this post, I bring to you another style inspiration on what to wear for attending a Christmas party this holiday season.
Perhaps pure coincidence but LBD also stands for Long Black Dress and Lace Bodice Details and that is exactly what I wore as I stepped out strutting my way into another gathering of merry making. Being 28 weeks pregnant, I must put on the disclaimer that this was actually a maternity dress but I have included quite a few non-maternity options and linked them all for you right below.
Have you ever wondered that if black is the absence of any primary colour, why do we like it so much any ways? Because by simply dressing up or down a notch, black enhances any other colour that goes with it and such one colour is no doubt – red. An ever-lasting duo across all ages, events and styles, black and red are sure shot colour combinations to glam up any party look very easily.
While my LBD (Long Black Dress) provided the perfect black backdrop, my red shoes, red bag, red lips and nails kept spewing the oozing oomph like a dormant volcano. Simple, elegant, risk-free, classy and stylish – that is what happens when black meets red during this party season.
What you wear is as good as where you wear it. I got myself clicked in my red-black combo here in front of the jaw-dropping Christmas façade put up by Annabel’s at Mayfair in London. Possibly one of the most awe-inspiring festive installations in the capital, Annabel’s has become a sacred pilgrimage site for Instagrammers and vogue vixens. Negotiating with the steady swarming of shutterbugs and passers-by, it did require some patience and difficult camera angles to get those perfect shots to bring in front of you.
Not just Annabel’s Mayfair, in fact the entire neighbourhood of Mayfair is in its best festive mood at this time of the year. Don’t forget to explore if you are in London town in the next few days upto Christmas.
Undoubtedly providing the best backdrop one could ask for, my LBD got its full TLC greatly because of this beautiful decor put up by Annabel’s. Not to mention how equally beautiful their interior is, but lets reserve that experience for another post.
Let me know if you are going to put on any of your LBD during this festive season? Why not share this post now with your friends and increase some TLC all around? Leave some comments below if you have any questions and I leave you with the wardrobe deets for you to fancy.
