All girls who love fashion will always have an LBD (Little Black Dress) handy in her cupboard, but do they own an LCD (Little Colourful Dress)?
It’s very fashionable to enjoy lots of colour this year, and it will add some excitement and life to your look. All you need are a few accessories to get ready for a fresh and vibrant year. This little dress will also lift your mood and keep it that way all day. LUX’s editors want to share with you their top four styles and colours for LCDs.
Shift in colour
A good-fitting shift dress is not only elegant but it drapes over the stomach which makes it perfect for those who have an apple-shaped figure. If you love your legs, you could try super-short shifts in brilliant hues and match that with a pair of high heels. Don’t forget about your hair, you could add a sky-high updo or fascinator to add to the exciting look. This season be on the lookout for an LCD with a 60s theme – like colour-blocking, animal print, digi print, lace and on-trend floral as bursts of colour.
Seductive sheath dresses
Those with slim, toned torsos will be happy to know that stand-out tones of bodycon dresses will look amazing on them because they will show off their slender shoulders and waists. The point is to choose a classy dress for elegance and style. Take a look at sheath dresses – they’re perfect for those with curves.
A good thing to remember is that if you want to rock a low neckline, pair it with a hemline that’s below the knee. If you have a high neckline, you might want to show a flash of thigh. Try some funky colours like offbeat purple, yellow and orange, but always be wary of choosing red – make sure your accessories are more low-key if you want to rock the red. Finish the outfit off with sculpted heels.
Pretty in Prints
If you love bright colour and patterns, we have some ideas for you. This look is fun with punchy colours in fun patterns, some paired with spirited florals and some with the trendy colour-blocking. Pick a print dress that’s light and floaty because they’re low-effort with high impact. Just remember to keep the rest of your accessories classy and simple or all the bold elements will fight for attention.
The Heat is On
Hot colours are also popular this season and with LCDs – pink is the colour. Also look at icy pastels from frosted blues to sugar mint greens. Fashionistas who love to be bold should welcome the trend and embrace the complimentary colours like cobalt blue and burnt orange, or mustard yellow and bright voilet. But for something earthier, look at selecting cerulean, lemon, tangerine, lime and cayenne (a reddish orange peppery tone).
Finish it Off
With so much colour, you’d want to balance it out with a gold or silver bag, they add a shimmer of colour and a dash of elegance. If not, black and white are perfect because they’ll never go out of fashion. And you’ll always want to be surrounded by a sensational scent wherever you go, we recommend LUX. Choose your favourite scent to go with your outfit and make a statement.
