The Little Black Dress

What's Your LBD Style?

LBD Style All Wrapped Up

No capsule wardrobe is complete without an occasion dress that can handle all of your calendar calls. Whether it’s a date night, a girls night or a networking event, there is one style in particular that’s become synonymous with stylish eveningwear – the Little Black Dress.

A good little black dress will give you classic elegance, timeless beauty and a palette you can style with everything. So dress to impress with these distinctive LBD looks!

The Coco-Loco LBD

Always a pioneer of female style, Coco Chanel was first credited with creating the little black dress. Chic yet simple, Chanel’s LBD made style accessible to all women and as champions of inclusive fashion, that’s
exactly the spirit of an L&F LBD too!

Perfect for sipping cocktails in, the Mavis Dress wraps the body in elegant luxury. Her wrap front adds definition to the waist while her short sleeves and the playful pockets concealed within the folds of her fluid skirt, nod to Chanel’s practical modernism.

Give your look sway and play up the movement of her bias-cut ruffle hem to maximum effect!


The Little Black Dress gets a sassy eveningwear look as L&Fs Bibi Dress delivers playful pockets and modern short sleeves with it's fixed-wrap, knee length, full-skirted style

Fix Your LBD Style

Sassed up and ready to go - the Bibi Fixed-Wrap Dress features flirtacious pockets á la the Mavis Dress but with a shorter, knee-length hemline.

The Dancefloor Diva LBD

The most versatile of dress shapes, the design benefits of wrap-front dresses triumph for eveningwear. Giving subtle drama, the soft V line of the crossover front naturally contours the bust, to frame the decolletage with subtle drama. Meanwhile, the waist-cinching belt emphasises hourglass curves by drawing in the silhouette at the narrowest point. A softly flowing skirt finishes the look with feminine grace.

For high impact eveningwear glamour, try a full skirted look. The Maree Dress, with her full skirt and flattering knee-grazing hemline, will have you gliding like Ginger Rogers - graceful at every turn.

"One is never overdressed or underdressed in a little black dress." - KARL LAGERFELD

The Studio 54 LBD

Her soft-touch jersey wrapping the silhouette in the shadow of a midnight filled with music, the Etta Dress oozes Studio 54 cool. She’s red-carpet ready and moves like she means business so make your entrance and get heads turning!

Anchoring the look, Etta’s fixed wrap front ruches flatteringly with a sunray of gathers. Slinky ¾ sleeves power up the shoulders and arms to give a definitive silhouette while her straight skirt, elegant to the knee, adds executive glamour.

Styling Tip: Give this look the edge with accessories that get straight to the point – think pointy-toed shoes (stilettos if you can stand it!), envelope bags and long-drop jewellery.
