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!
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 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
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.

A flattering long-sleeve top in a striking pattern. I love the Thorns birds pattern and it works well in this design making a very flexible cooler weather top that can be worn at work or in a more casual setting.
I had recently purchased the white arley and loved it so much I purchase both the midnight and black in the recent sale. They have been worn on rotation due to their easy wear, lovely styling and numerous comments including a critical spouse who thought they all looked very crisp and stylish,
Have been sitting on the fence partly due to price and wearability but I purchase the jacket in black in the recent sale
And I love it. It’s so versatile,
Light but warm, not sure how it will
Wear but others are saying it’s easy to care for. Don’t hesitate….. thanks L&F.
I bought the linen blazer in navy. The quality is gorgeous and it is able to be styled from formal to casual. A fantastic investment piece.
Emily is my favourite style summer top - so of course I had to add the Crezia to my collection. Green is my colour, so this top will be a firm favourite.
I only have one other bamboo top as I generally prefer the jersey ones but this top is very comfortable and cool for the warmer weather. It's a good basic style which I bought to go with some of my printed pants and cobalt Lulu's. The Emily style is one of my favourites too, so this works well for me.
Love these pants!! I have most other styles but these would have to be the best fit and length for me (163cm). The colour is devine too. I am very pleased I bought these in the recent sale and will likely buy them in other colours if they are available in future.
Love them. First pair of Presley pants. Love the print.
This was my first Emily purchase and is now my favourite top. I also love the Crezia print- I would love a dress or longer sleeved top in this print too.
Paeton is my favourite top. The Tassel print is quite luxe, can see it being on high rotation with my other L&F pieces
Bought in the recent sale. Chose a 14 to suit my hip size and happy with the fit, comfortable around the tummy and I like the looser fit across my thighs. Good length for my height and nice weight to the fabric.
A great investment- I love this classic , flattering top
Definitely 5 stars! Striking print, material superbly soft and can't wait to wear it for a special occasion or dress down with denim skirt or navy pants
The Indi Pant is beyond fabulous AND comfy -- perfect for work! May need to get some other colours, hint hint
Love this dress as it's great quality and very comfortable.
