The Little Black Dress

Romantic floral dresses have bloomed, nautical stripes sailed in and sheer fabrics revealed sun kissed skin on the fashion runways for spring/summer 2010. But no matter what the trend, one item has stood the test of time… the Little Black Dress or ‘LBD’.

With the right accessories, an LBD can go from a day in the office to a night out on the town in minutes!

For a classic day look, pair your LBD with a cardigan, flat pumps, Donna Viva ‘D’ pearl earrings, necklace and bracelet.

The inspiration is 1950’s glamour so line eyelids with dark brown or black liquid liner, curl lashes before applying mascara, create a dewy complexion with a tinted moisturiser or mineral powder and paint your lips red like 1950’s fashion icons Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Oasis and Grace Kelly did.

For a night out, update the look by replacing the cardigan with a sequenced shrug or sheer wraparound, slip into a pair of gorgeous peep-toe heels and make a sparkling statement with a black triple string crystal Donna Viva ‘D’ bracelet and teardrop earrings.

The look is shimmery, sexy rock chick. Complete the look by blotting your lips to tone done the colour, apply a neutral or soft pink gloss, smoke up your eyes with a dark shimmering brown or grey eye shadow applied on the lid and lightly between your bottom lashes. Increase the drama by applying another coat of mascara and let your hair down for a sultry night out.

It’s good to know that whatever the season or trend, some pieces are classics! Find timeless jewellery in the online boutique and for more styles tips join Donna Viva ‘D’ on Facebook.
