As winter approaches, here are four LBDs to save you from outfit crises

As winter approaches, here are four LBDs to save you from outfit crises

Every woman owns one, and there are few who won’t admit that it has saved their sartorial bacon once or twice. An LBD is the clothing equivalent of an Audi car – reliable but very stylish. As the days darken and the season of celebration looms, I’ve picked out four LBDs that will save you from any number of outfit crises.

Sexy but chic, this LBD from Irish online retailer iclothing is stunning. I love the midi hemline because it allows for the more risqué neckline. This is a really sophisticated piece at a great price.

One-shoulder midi dress, €89 at iclothing.com

If you’re a fan of Meghan Markle’s style (and who isn’t?) then this is the dress for you. Similar to Markle’s tuxedo dress, it’s smart, sexy and very modern. It will work equally well with black opaque tights too.

Tailored frock coat, €59.95 at Zara

 This looks like such an easy piece to wear. The midi length and long sleeves make it a great option for daytime events. Pair with a statement necklace or oversized earrings.

Limited Edition wool corset dress, €199 at Massimo Dutti

I love this dress, and it’s top of my wish list right now. The gentle frill detailing is so chic and makes for a cool contrast with the masculine button-front top.
