THREE LITTLE LETTERS: LBD
"Timeless. A style that truly flatters your body. Something classic with an edge." —Maria Pinto
It’s only three little words but the concept of a Little Black Dress
speaks volumes. It’s that one item in your closet that you can always count on to make you look great and, just as important, feel great, too. Or, as Maria puts it, “It’s a game-changer and a reliable go-go.” Therein lies the dual magic of a little black dress: its versatility makes it perfect for so many occasions — big and small, fancy or casual — while it never fails to give the wearer a little boost of self-confidence. It’s the piece in your wardrobe that says, You got this, girl, no matter what ‘this’ is.
FIND YOUR PERFECT LBD AT M2057
Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Grace Kelly in Rear Window. Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde… The little black dress has had plenty of iconic moments over the years. Now it’s time for you to make some of your own. Here, we offer a few LBDs from M2057 along with some tips from Maria:
The right dress should go from day to night:For many of us, the dividing line between work and play can be fuzzy. So it makes sense that you should have pieces that can lead a dual life, too. Loujaya is a sleeveless dress with a 2-way back zipper than can be adjusted to reveal a slit (hello, cocktail party!).Maret takes the basic slip dress and elevates it with a flattering deep front V-neck and scoop back. Pair it with a blazer during the day.
Choose a style that changes mood through accessories: A LBD’s versatility comes from its ease of pairing with a variety of add-ons — from jewelry and shoes to belts and handbags. A modern A-line dress, Delilah X looks perfect with or without a belt and its keyhole back neckline adds an element of surprise.
Look for a style that is clean and minimal: Want your LBD to never go out of style (looking at you, Audrey!)? Then opt for a style that’s minimal but never boring. Stella is a sleeveless pencil dress with a slim fit with stretch, with a flattering jewel neck and a double back zipper that can be adjusted at the collar or hem. Durga offers an easy fit with sculpted, voluminous ¾ sleeves and pockets at the hip.
A little black dress has become core to any women’s wardrobe. When in doubt it is always safe and a confidence builder. —Maria Pinto
