Survival | The One Item All Millennials Need

Un…Deux…Trois! How many ways can you wear an essential LBD? A multitude. Well, three in this post, to be precise. This will be your lifesaver, your go-to, your must-have, and all the other clichés that promise a dress that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE (was that another cliché?). Anyway, you get the picture, it’s a good dress. Styled in three ways, here’s why you need an essentials dress


On the Town

An LBD for a night out in the bright lights of the big city is essential for the following reasons:

  • Chic.
  • Sophisticated.
  • Elegant.
  • Simple.
  • Can get stained with ham and pineapple pizza at the takeaway and no one will know (and you’ll STILL look chic).

Wear it with Fur

Meoowwww! Hello, our classic old saviour, The Leopard Print Coat. This season our furry friend is prowling its way onto the backs of our fashionistas again. But who can walk around their local town wearing leopard with wide leg striped green trousers and Acne knitwear? My guess is probably few of us (unless your name is Anna dello Russo and then you can wear whatever the hell you want). No no no, the classic leopard fur IS wearable… When it’s done in the right way…

Pair your fluffy coat with the essentials dress and high-waisted denim for the perfect ‘off-duty’ (love that phrase and determined it will work for mere mortals and not just models) look. A kitten heel boot will complete this feline ensemble so that you’ll be purring all the way to brunch.

Ah, casual. Smasual casual. Just smasual. Just casual. Just caj. The laid back, effortless, ‘I just threw this on and looked like Gigi Hadid’ kinda look. Let us not pretend that we don’t all aim for that. A casual night out that requires ONLY your comfiest pair of dancing trainers, or drinks where you want to dress down but still look cool… this dress is for you. Yes, you. Team it with vinyl and trainers for the ultimate of L.A. chic.
