LBDs ‘make people look slimmer’
Those seeking to lose weight fast can give the illusion that they have done so by slipping on a little black dress (LBD), a fashion expert has claimed.
Kate Williams, fashion writer at website OSOYOU.com, said that LBDs are very slimming.
“Black is … considered the optimum slimming colour and the LBD can be a flattering fashion choice for body conscious females,” she said.
Ms Williams said that the LBD is very versatile, which means that it never goes out of fashion.
She went on to say that as trends change from one season to the next, people can still wear their LBD, but alter their accessories accordingly.
For example, Ms Williams said that this season colour blocking is “huge”, so fashionistas can don their LBD and team it with brightly-coloured bags, belts and jewellery.
Ms Williams’ comments follow the publication of research by Shelias’ Wheels, which shows that the LBD is considered the top design icon that has best stood the test of time.
