It’s a truth universally acknowledged that no girl’s wardrobe is complete without a little black dress; or several, if you’re anything like us!
The classic LBD is there for us in our sartorial time of need, but it’s evolved over the years and the seasons, which means there are actually a lot of different styles out there to choose from. So, whether you want a demure one for the office or a sexy one for the cocktail bar – or something for all those in-between occasions, we have a feeling you’re going to find one to suit you in our selection.
