“One is never over- or under-dressed with a little black dress.” - Karl Lagerfeld
This is one of my favorite fashion quotes from a Chanel designer. It is the one piece of fashion advice I always keep in mind when it seems I have nothing to wear, especially now with an added bump. I think there are many versions of the LBD perfect for every occasion including the summer time!
I know traditionally when you think of the LBD, you think of something more refined and classic, think Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany’s. But like the great Mr. Lagerfeld suggests, the perfect LBD comes in many forms.
A good example of this is my basic swing tank dress that is lightweight, perfect for the summer weather, and it's easy to mix and match with some of your favorite summer accessories making it perfect for any summer occasion.
Today on the blog I wanted to rethink the LBD and make it more accessible for summer. I will show you some amazing LBD’s from my favorite retailers that will leave you looking fabulous while staying cool and comfortable all summer long!
Nordstrom: I'm loving everything embroidered and OTS for summer making this dress a perfect trendy piece to add to my LBD collection. This LBD is perfect for a picnic with friends or a cute date night look!
Francesca's : The ruffle sleeve is my favorite part of this cute LBD. Its a perfect canvas to mix and match accessories and wear to one of the many summer weddings I have this season.
Loft: More embroidery! I'm sorry it is one of my favorite trends so its only fitting I have 2 different styles. This one from the Loft is perfect for casual Friday at the office or a luncheon with some girl friends!
Old Navy: Here is where to find the basic swing I'm wearing above. It's perfect and versatile for all summer long and it even fits my ever growing baby bump perfectly!
Asos: You can't find a more classic look when it comes to this LBD wrap dress. This dress from Asos is the prefect LBD to wear anywhere from a night time party to Sunday brunch. That's why it was a must add to my Summer LBD list.
Asos Maternity: Being a new mama to be I could not resist adding a fun Maternity LBD to my list. I am obsessing over Asos maternity line it's one of my favorite to shop and I had to share this over the shoulder LBD that's perfect for the ever growing baby bump!
