I love a sleek LBD, actually I love almost any sort of LBD. Black is one of the colors you can almost never go wrong with. But every now and then I do want to rock something different and serve the unexpected. I'm finding the importance of having a standby or an LBD alternative. I love a party or an event with a theme. But I also love to shake it up a bit - I don't always want to be lost in a sea of black dresses, white dresses, red dresses....whatever. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being the individuals we are.
One such LBD alternative is a flirty jumpsuit. I love the dimensions (you can find one to flatter any silhouette), the sultry appeal and the clean, tailored details. This LBD alternative gives them something to talk about and remember. It's versatile also. Most can be layered with a jacket (blazer, moto, cropped or other) to tone done the appeal for a more muted or understated look.
I've linked some pretty fly jumpsuits below. Nasty Gal always comes through with bodycon versions for the confident fashionista. There are several with plunging necklines you can take a peek at (not linked). My favorite is the Misha jumpsuit that is linked. It's effortless, gorgeous...makes such a statement.
I'd love to hear about your alternatives to the little black dress in the comments. Keep it fab, loves!
