Outfit Post: The Everyday Little Black Dress

Style Theory: The Little Black Dress, endlessly useful, always chic and understated, one of my wardrobe staples. 

I was on the look out for one that was really comfortable and could be worn during the day as well as being dressed up for an evening out...step forward this fab little dress from Me+Em...The dress is an a-line, swing shape perfect for skimming over a tummy, with slit pockets at the front. The fabric is a medium weight crepe that hangs beautifully, skimming over any lumps and bumps. Today I added a pair of trainers for a comfy day outfit. 

Dress: Me+Em similar here in the sale
Trainers: Adidas Superstar £64.99
Backpack: Zara similar here
In the evening I will pair the dress with heels and an animal print, oversize clutch. This dress will work perfectly in the winter with opaque tights and a pair of tan knee high boots..or I will style it like this...

It is one of those dresses I know I will wear loads, I have been looking at it for ages on Me+Em website and decided to take the plunge and I am so glad I did.

Here are a few other LBD I have seen on the high street..
Clockwise from far left:

I just love a black dress and I not sure if it is because since I have got back from holiday and do not need to wear a bikini I have been eating ALOT but swing dresses are really appealing to me, the no waistband thing is just too good!

Are you a fan of the all day/evening little black dress. Do you have one you wear all the time or do you tend to keep it for special occasions?
As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time, Frances xxx
