The other day I was talking to my fellow friend and Fashion blogger Elle of http :// www.elledke.com/ .Our discussion was obvious as we were trying to come up with the content for this week. We decided to settle on the LBD.

The famous little black dress is probably the most essential apparel that should exist in any woman closet. It’s one of those timeless classics that always comes through for cocktail parties, outdoor and indoor events and  also to the office.

Its colour enables you to style it without much of a hustle because it is compatible with almost any colour of shoe or accessory. Well, we also know black has a way of making the body look slimmer, taller and leaner.

I love how Elle styled this particular LBD, and you can agree with me she killed it. With so much ease and effort you ought to agree with me this is a perfect office or smart casual look. The long sleeve aspect ensures you don’t require a blazer as it protects you from the harsh chilly weather we are experiencing of late.

I totally love the white collar and sleeves which breaks the black colour monotony of the entire outfit. For this reason, Elle did not require to add more accessories. She maintained a clean, crisp and classy appeal without trying too hard.

Her elegant shoes and clutch bag did the entire look perfect justice. Doesn’t she ooze femininity at its best with this look? To see more of what Elle does, please visit her blog http:// www.elledke.com/
