There is a LBD for all body shapes
I always recommend dressing according to your own body shape to my clients. A lot of style advice is based on people having to hide their flaws, rather that embracing what is good about their body. For me this way of thinking is alien because hiding and projecting negative thoughts towards your body has never done anyone any favors.
My job is to help you to look your best every day. I have selected these 4 I on Image-proof dresses for you to love and wear for years to come. I love them for their versatility and simplicity. You can dress them up or down by changing accessories -even on the go.
I chose models with sleeves because I know you want them. We simply don’t have the time to look for matching cover-ups. Instant outfits are the way to go in my opinion. The hem length is also a hot topic so I went for an elegant and wearable knee-length.
There is a little black dress for every body shape out there. Go and discover yours!
