Curvy Chronicles: The Little Black Dress

(BY NJAMIO) The LBD (little black dress) is an elegant simple cut dress, usually short but one is not bound to keeping it short. It is a staple in every woman’s closet. Vamping it up is the challenge, how do we take a simple black dress and turn it into a fierce black number? As a curvy woman the challenge begins in finding a dress that actually flatters the body, I personally love skater dresses because they create a waist and flare out at the pleats creating definition.

There are various types of LBD’s for the curvy woman, there is the peplum trend, the skater, a utility dress such as one with pockets and a form fitting one best worn with high waist briefs  to conceal any flaws.

Vamping up is left to your accessories. Because it is black, the drawing board is yours to do as you please. No color goes wrong with black, from blazers to skinny belts around the waist.  One may also go simple with tights and a colored shoe or bold colored tights and a black shoe.

Below I demonstrate how to dress you LBD down and up by adding simple touches by simply switching the shoes.
