Often I refer to my style as causal, and the truth is that 90% of the time you will find me in my favourite jeans, sweaters, and boots. But every so often, I have the excuse to dress up and relish in being a bit more glamorous. Last week I was invited to the Spence Diamonds Soiree, the perfect excuse to get dressed up in my new Lurap tiered fringe dress. I have been pretty obsessed with fringe dresses lately (see another fringe look here!), and I loved the unique and subtle tiered fringe twist on this classic LBD.
Finding the perfect LBD can be tricky, and just like any other item in my closest – I always seek out ones which have something special and different to them. I always am drawn to pieces that set themselves apart from the norm with one of a kind detailing. During the holidays, I’ve always found it especially necessary to have that perfect LBD hanging in my closest. You never know when you’ll get a last minute invite to a event or holiday party, and there’s nothing easier to turn to than that gorgeous classic little black dress. Click through today to learn how to find your perfect little black dress, and the LBD’s I have my eye on!
How to Find Your Perfect Little Black Dress
Seek Out Necklines and Dress Lengths that You’re Comfortable In
Comfort is king in my books, and there’s nothing that makes me more fidgety than a too low neckline or too short hemline. Finding your perfect little black dress is really about finding your comfort zone, and knowing what makes a dress one that you’ll wear confidently again and again. I like to be able to wear things that allow me to move about freely. Also, when I think about finding a really versatile LBD I always have to take in consideration whether it’s work appropriate or not. Often the neckline and length determines how wearable a dress is for the office.
Get a Dress Made Just for You
Speaking of getting the right fit, sometimes it’s worth it to get a dress custom fitted to you. With companies like Lurap offering affordable custom sizing on all of their clothing, there’s no reason to not indulge yourself in a fitted-to-you dress. I have a curvier hip, a small waist, and a long shoulder line and at times, I have found it challenging to find a dress that properly fits all those spots. Custom sizing makes it so easy to get your dream dress perfectly fitted to you.

Embrace Your Body and Highlight Your Favourite Parts
We all have different bodies, and silhouettes look different on all of us. I, for example, just can’t seem to really rock a simple shift dress. The fits that look best on me tend to be ones which emphasize my upper body and waistline and then flare out around my hips. If you have a rectangular shape than chances are you can rock a shift no problem, but if you want to create a more hourglass shape then try to find a fit and flare and emphasize the waistline with a belt. Finding your perfect fit is all about discovering flattering styles that highlight and celebrate your shape. Finding pieces that work for you doesn’t mean finding pieces that hide what you consider flaws, it’s about finding pieces that show off the parts of you that you love.
