Since Coco Chanel first introduced us to the little black dress (LBD), every girl has learned that this fashion staple is her best friend. Classic black dresses are a versatile, sophisticated, chic and flattering wardrobe essential – just ask Victoria Beckham, who’s designed a whole range of them.
The first step, of course, is to make sure you have the cut that’s right for you. Hourglass figures need a cinched waist to highlight their curves, while dresses with a peplum will accentuate curvaceous hips. 
Meanwhile, apple shapes should reach for a wrap dress to create the illusion of a nipped-in waistline, or an empire-line style to skim over any lumps and bumps in the midsection. If you have a large bust, a V-neck is always flattering. For pear shapes, prom dresses, shift dresses and embellishments above the waist can help to balance out your silhouette. Athletic figures are complemented by short, fitted dresses or drop-waisted styles. I’m going to show you three different occasions in which these outfits are appropriate for. As its Valentine’s Day tomorrow, these LBD’s may be what you need.

The LBD is an obvious choice for any woman looking to make an impact at work, or for those quick lunch dates. It’s easy and comfortable, so you wont have to worry about any bulges. A well-cut black dress is ideal for both the boardroom and the business lunch. pairing these with nude mid-height heels. You can add a fitted blazer for a polished look.
 If you’re seeking a laidback, off-duty look, try teaming a simple black dress with coloured ballet pumps or plimsolls. Add a hobo bag and cardigan for a relaxed yet stylish weekend outfit.

Black dresses are incredibly versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down. An LBD can take you from day to night effortlessly if you change into some black (or red in this case) platform heels for instant glam. Accessorise with a sparkly clutch bag and sweep your hair into a classic chignon to complete the look.
