21 Ways Trendy Women Dazzle in a Black Dress

Why we feel that there is more than just one way to wear a little black dress (LBD), just read on and see stunning and timeless black dresses in different styles and 21 Ways Trendy Women Dazzle in a Black Dress on many different occasions.

The Little Black Dress is a classically elegant cut black dress, originally. Designers were however inspired to level up the black dress from its original style and turn it into an all-time must-have and essential item in every woman’s wardrobe.  It is considered a classic of women’s fashion.

The little black dress (LBD) was originally worn as an evening or cocktail dress, it’s cut simple, chic and often quite short at approximately knee-length. I think one of the most famous little black dresses was worn by beautiful Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” designed by Givenchy.
The origins of the little black dress date back to the 1920s designs of Coco Chanel and Jean Patou, with its intention to be timeless and versatile, according to fashion historians. 

For as long as we can remember, the little black dress is considered an ultimate essential to a complete wardrobe. Most fashion stylists and observers believe that every woman should own an elegant, simple and timeless black dress that can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion.

For a daytime business look you can wear the LBD with a blazer, pumps and accessorize with a scarf. For an evening occasion, cocktail dinner party or a formal event such as a wedding or ball, add some sparkling accessories such as ornate jewelry or a striking shawl.

Night Out On The Town Outfit Ideas For the 50 Plus Woman Who Dare to Dress Up.

These little black dresses are pretty sexy aren’t they. Now there are 2 reasons I love these looks, firstly I think that women over 50 can wear anything if the body shape suits the style, as long as they feel comfortable. Secondly, Nr.1 and Nr. 2 can also be styled with black high-quality leggings or skinny pants if you feel they are too short to wear as a dress. There you have it! 

  1. What I like most about this soft flowing Daydream Tunic  is the wrap front with the side tie closure. Women over 50 look best wearing this short tunic dress with high quality leggings or as a dress if you have worked out all your life and have legs to kill for. 
  2. This gorgeous off the shoulder No Bad Angles Dress is soft and easy to wear with or without a belt. 
  3. The asymmetric hem is so flattering and very popular amongst many women over 50. This stunning Camo Dress is also available in more vibrant colors namely khaki, red and white. 

Glamour is a Girls Best Friends! Or was it Diamonds? 🙂

I couldn’t resist adding these 3 glamorous black dresses because I love these occasional special events, even though they are very rare. Attending a red carpet premiere, going to an opening, a ball or an uptown cocktail party, one of these would be on my list. But for now, it’s ok to just enjoy the idea of wearing one of these 3 totally different and unique styles.

  1. Ok I admit, this playful and delicate  all over Lace Dress is rather daring for women over 50. But we are just fifty plus, not dead! Wear it if you dare! I would, it shows skin but doesnt have the effect of nakedness. (is that even a word !?)
  2. Now this is too short for my liking to wear as a dress, but why not add Black Spanx and sexy heels to keep the glamorous touch this sequined and embroidered fringe dress has to offer.
  3. The Winner! With its asymmetric shoulder and front cut out knot accent, this Edgy Dress has the ultimate feminine design, making every woman over fifty a diva with style and grace.
