her ensemble: the leather lbd

The one piece of women’s wear known by its acronym, the little black dress is widely considered an essential item in any woman’s closet. The LBD by definition is a simple, elegant black dress that can be worn on any occasion. Wear it with a jacket and pumps during the day for a smart business wear option or pair it with a statement necklace and killer heels for a sophisticated evening look. The key to the LBD’s versatility is to keep it simple. Go for a classic cut without too much detail to ensure its timelessness. You can always add the accessories after.

For those looking for something a little different, the little black leather dress may just be the answer to give you that tough, modern edge. A black leather dress is a statement in its own right, so keep the accessories to a minimum and let the leather speak for itself. The young lady pictured in today’s post has opted to go minimal with her leather LBD. I love the contrast of the black leather with her fiery red hair, with her cut-out shoes and cat-eye shades, there’s an underlying attitude emanating from her look. It’s saying, don’t mess with this gal! That’s the power of leather.
