The other LBD

LBD, our beloved little black dress should be a staple in women’s closet. When you think it’s the end of the world because suddenly there’s nothing to wear, the trusted black dress comes to the rescue. Another type of LBD I think every woman should consider is the slightly L(ong) Black Dress. The longer hemlines gives a more feminine touch to a women’s frame. Midi dresses is a bit tricky for petite ladies like me. However, the black colour create a slimmer illusion. Thus, it makes us look like we have longer frame. High five to that!
The L(longer) black dress is perfect to wear when we still want to look more conservative or on a chilly day. Just add simple pearl earring, red lip, nice handbag and a killer shoe. You will so polish that even your mother in law or  potential mother in law will approve straight away 😜


1. For petite ladies, cinch the waist in with a belt to create proportions. You can either have the belt on the smallest of your waist or higher to have the empire waist effect. Obi belt works best for this.

2. If your dress is a knit dress, look for knits that have vertical lines. It will help create the length you need.
