Little Black Dress Styles part 1 – Add Flair

The little black dress, or LBD,  that go-to answer to many style needs, comes in different lengths and silhouettes to flatter any figure. It’s certainly a favorite dress style of celebrities. Celebrity style can give us inspiration and ideas for our own little black dress outfits. For this post, I will focus on the little black dress styles with flounce and flair. These include styles such as trapeze, tent and ball silhouettes.

Featured here in this celebrity inspired style post is Emma Roberts who attended The Kindred Foundation For Adoption Inaugural Fundraiser. The actress walked the red carpet in the “Exaggerated Flounce Dress”  by Cynthia Rowley (a sleeveless version of an earlier dress)  and Stuart Weitzman  heels.

Celebrity Style, The Little Black Dress Outfit

The flared shift silhouette LBD  is a great option to have in your closet. It’s figure-friendly and the movement that such a silhouette can have is an accessories in itself.

Ali Landry attended the Cinderella premier in a Michael Costello cocktail dress. The voluminous ball silhouette is among the most a glamorous little black dress styles.

With echoes of the blue-and-black or white-and-gold “great #TheDress debate“, the Daily Mail dubbed Ali Landry’s dress midnight blue but clearly this is a black dress, so I will call this an LBD-esque dress (that’s my story and I stick with it!)
