The L.B.D.

Thanks to Coco Chanel in 1926 inventing the L.B.D (little black dress) this staple item has become a part of every girls wardrobe. The LBD is the all around dress. You can wear it to work, a dinner date, a luncheon with your girls, a funeral ;( and even to the club. If you don't have an LBD in your closet drop everything your doing right now and go out and get one but not before I share with you my tips on shopping for an LBD that's perfect for your body type.

1. Curvy: If your a curvy girl try an LBD that has a v-neck or scoop neck to highlight your neckline. It will lengthen your body and accentuate your curves.

2. Top Heavy: If your top heavy your LBD should have alot of detailing on the bottom. It will give you some POW to match that God given POW your have going on up top.

3. Tall: Don't you love a wrap style dress in any color? I do... If your tall this is the style LBD you want to shop for. Its extremely flattering on your tall frame and will give you a little extra figure if your worried about looking too thin.

4. Short: If your short like me I always recommend an LBD that does not have too much detailing and design going on. Go for something more simple and clean cut and use accessories to spice the dress up. The simplicity of the dress will elongate your body making you look taller and slimmer.
