5 Ways to Wear the LBD
The Little Black Dress has long held court as one of the most important items in any well-stocked wardrobe. It’s not difficult to understand why, the ideal Little Black Dress is versatile, flattering and an easy option when in a pinch deciding what to wear. Sound too good to be true? We’ll prove it to you with five distinct looks that all use the LBD.
First and foremost, for maximum versatility, know what to look for in the perfect Little Black Dress. It should be seamless, with no embellishments, lightweight cotton with a little stretch. Long sleeves (that can be pushed up in warmer seasons), fitted (though not tight) with a hem just below or around the knee is perfect. Hit all of these checkmarks and you have a dress that can be layered over and under, is season-less and can be dressed up or down.
For the Office
Though the Little Black Dress makes a great office staple, what you pair it with is key. It’s important to layer with classic basics for a professional finish – a great blazer, mid high heels, structured tote – your LBD is ready for that 9 a.m. meeting (even if you’re not quite awake yet). Look for a dress that is machine washable to save yourself time & money. Care for your LBD with the Whirlpool Cabrio High Efficiency Top Load Washer. The ColorLast option uses a precise wash action, gentle temperatures and time so that your clothes look fresh, not faded.
For a Cocktail Party
The perfect transitional piece, ditch the blazer, add a little bling and you & your LBD are set for after work drinks and fun.
For the Weekend
Cotton with a little bit of stretch (5% should do just fine) ensures that your LBD is comfortable enough for casual settings and running errands. Treat your dress like a tunic and throw it over a pair of leggings and runners for a cool and hardworking outfit.
For a glam affair, think of your dress as a top and layer underneath a colourful dressy skirt. Choose fun accessories, like a jewel belt and bright clutch, to add even more festivity to the look.
Heading on holiday? Your LBD is the perfect vacation item. It takes up almost zero space in your luggage and, because of its versatility, will maximize your holiday wardrobe. Lightweight cotton is breathable and appropriate for hot climates – roll up the sleeves and slip on a pair of sandals for a no-effort sophisticated beach look.
Caring for your LBD
Good care is essential to keep your LBD looking its best. The Delicate Cycle on the Whirlpool Cabrio High Efficiency Top Load Washer helps to maintain your garment shape and minimize pilling. Keep your LBD looking black longer with the Whirlpool Cabrio High Efficiency Top Load Dryer thanks to Advanced Moisture Sensing. This feature continuously monitors heat and moisture levels to automatically end the cycle when clothes are perfectly dry. This keeps the LBD looking new every time you wash it. Knowing that your hardworking dress is in good hands with a Whirlpool washing & drying laundry system, wear your LBD with abandon and have fun coming up with even more ways on your own!
