MMM: Reworking the LBD for, erm, work

If there’s one item in your wardrobe you have as a standard go-to, chances are it’s an LBD, Little Black Dress.

It’s always chic, it will work with lots of other colours you own, plus it’s easy to update with a new jacket or pair of shoes. An LBD is one of my easy, can’t-deal-with-the-morning style choices.

I recently checked out this black dress from Hobbs*, (who have some great workwear options, by the way). It’s one of those pieces that you think ‘will come in’ and be ‘useful’. Yes, that is something my mother would say, I have officially turned into her. It’s super-flattering with its faux knot front, on-the- knee length and classic shirt style and I know I’ll be able to wear it with loads of different pieces this Summer to really make the most out of the price.

Here are some ways you could give your classic LBD an instant new season spin for the office:

Throw over a sleeveless jacket, team with monochrome, stacked sandals and add a splash of colour with a red bag.

Layer a printed shirt underneath (update on the striped Breton), wear a textured cardigan/jacket over the top and choose chunky black sandals.

The new trench is a fluid shape, rather than formal. Wear with a snake handbag and platform sandals.

    I think it’s definitely worth the high price tag if you buy something you’ll get so much use from. That dress is lovely and so adaptable, How’ve you found wearing it so far?
