Hi, I'm Rose Tran and I'm a fashion stylist. A little black dress is a staple for every wardrobe but it's important to keep in mind the shape of your body. If you want to find the one that's flattering, pay close attention to the cut, style and the length of your dress. Here are some words of advice for your LBD. If you're petite, you can pull off a short dress without looking inappropriate. It'll elongate your legs and accentuate your figure to its advantage. I've chosen this Lamixx dress available at Dog and Pony Boutique. The asymmetric shoulders create a mod look for an otherwise typical dress. If you're full figured and curvy, I would suggest a dress that disguises your mid-section and that cinches at the waist. A flowy bottom would be the best option for balance. Don't be afraid to show off your curves with a low v-neck like the one our model has on. If you're an athletic build, stay away from gowns that have shapeless forms. I would suggest form fitting dresses with a feminine detail to balance out your boyish figure. Its structure brings attention to your toned arms and shoulders while the form fit will flatter your slim waist and sculpted legs. Use this guide to find your perfect little black dress that can be worn throughout the seasons.
