Outfit du Jour: Pull out your favourite Little Black Dress and pair it with a nude nail

When it comes to Little Black Dresses, I’ll just come right out and say that if you don’t have one you should push your chair out from your desk and immediately get yourself to the nearest reliable clothes store. This is an absolute wardrobe essential. Buy for your body shape and embrace the idea that this dress will take you everywhere for every occasion. Now that we have the importance of this garment emphasised, let’s talk accessorising.

For the most part, the LBD will be used for the more, let’s say, “sophisticated” moments in life. As such, you want to make sure your accompanying accessories fit the mood. Depending on the occasion, you are either go for a funky black heel (laser cut leather or laces up to there) or a classic black pump. For handbags, opt for a clutch as often as possible. It’s the perfect elegant accessory. And when it comes to picking out your nail colour, keep things as simple as possible and opt for a nearly nude coloured polish. It’s simple, classic and keeps the focus on the classic simplicity of your ensemble. I’m currently working with Latte from Maybelline Colorshow. It elongates the fingers and gives the illusion of a perfectly manicured set of nails, even if you haven’t really had time to pop into the salon for a little help.
