Fashion Fridays: The L.B.D. Right For Your Body Type

So a couple months ago I wrote a blog about dressing right for your body type here--and with an overwhelming response, I thought I'd do a part II! Of course I'm keeping my original names--and remember you may be a combination of more than one body type.

Now everyone from Tim Gunn to your favorite fabulous aunt will tell you that if there is one staple that should be in every woman's closet--it would be the Little Black Dress (LBD). This typically is an all occasion dress that can be styled up or down depending on the event. I have done a little online shopping and found some knock out picks for particular occasions for each body type. Of course the one that I picked under your body type may not be your taste, but find inspiration where you can. Feel free to refer back to the original post (it has its own tab at the top). And as always, enjoy!

  1. For my body shape (The Queen), I have an LBD just like that! And I've had it for years. (I don't know if that's good or bad!) I'm glad to know I was on the right track!
