“You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it for almost any occasion.” — Christian Dior
The LBD has long been a style staple for every girl. This is particularly true in the run up to the festive season. With numerous parties to attend, it can sometimes feel like you are running out of looks and outfits. The classic black dress is always an option that will save you any stress. It is and always will be a classic, stylish look.
There are so many different styles, shapes and looks that a black dress can create. There literally is not one woman who cannot wear a black dress and change it to her own personal style. I have chosen the Top 10 Black Dresses currently available and perfect for the party season, I have gone for a range of different styles in the hope that everyone finds something they like.

Investing in a black dress is always a smart choice in my opinion, if it is good quality you can literally have it for years. Perfect excuse to go shopping ladies!
I am a big fan of pencil skirts and I think they are perfect for a night out. I tend to opt for a pencil skirt and top as opposed to a dress. I think it helps elongate my body and slims my hips. Pencil skirts are not only extremely stylish, they also streamline any body shape, giving a sexy silhouette. They are perfect for nights out but also for occasions. Just invest wisely in the colour! When choosing a pencil skirt, make sure the material is thick enough to cover underwear lines and the like but not too thick that it adds bulk. At the moment I am in love with the options currently available in River Island. The faux leather material is so flattering and the placement of the pockets will actually slim the hips and help create an hourglass shape. The band around the waistline will also emphasis your curves giving the illusion of an even smaller waist.
At €40.00 they are a complete steal and will go with everything. I already have a black and baby blue one but I can see myself investing in some more colours. The skirts themselves are very flattering and are so versatile.

Tartan is starting to show up everywhere and for me this signifies the onset of cosy outfits and stylish patterns. Tartan and Check prints are by far one of my favourite winter trends. I always struggle to find nice pieces that will last into the following year though. I can always picture what I want however these items never seem to be on the high street. This year however I have decided to keep a look out early so that I’m not left disappointed. This winter Tartan and Check are not restricted to just red. navy and dark green are also bang on trend so put your own individual twist on it! Here are some of the pieces I’m adding to my wishlist for this season.
