The little black dress, also known as the LBD. A word combo that every woman knows and loves and should own in her collection. This one item born in the 1920’s by Coco Chanel changed the fashion world. Usually cut simply and quite short, the LBD is a “rule of fashion” that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Worn with a jacket and pumps for daytime business wear or with more ornate jewelry and accessories for evening. Because it is meant to be a staple of the wardrobe for a number of years. But why not take that “LBD” idea and take it over in a playsuit? Well, that’s exactly what I did. Accommodating the 70’s style with flare sleeves and lace up details, this black playsuit ticks all the right boxes. Lace-up detail gives it a little bit of playfulness and sex appeal, the flared long sleeves are a nice and different touch for a playsuit and because it’s black – it’s timeless. I love how you can’t barely notice that it’s a playsuit, and when you do, it’s all that little bit of more interesting. Playsuit is one of the most easiest looks to wear, when you can’t be bothered to think, what you want to wear. Plus you will never have the problem of getting the “Marilyn Monroe” moment, with the wind slapping your dress up in your face and your panties showing to the whole street. Embarrassing. Especially with the wind in the Netherlands (I’ve learned not to wear skirts or dresses that can fly up). For the cleaner look pairing the black assemble with the white accessories is a great change. You can always also go for the pop of color or metallics.
