Team the BlingDeenie Blue Lola Dress with plain black wedges and loose tumbling curves like our model to make the dress more wearable.
- The Cocktail Dress
The Bourne Dara Dress in Black is perfect for ladies who prefer a more covered-up look come Christmas party season. With long sleeves and a slight peplum detail to the waist this LBD is a real figure-flatterer. That doesn't take away from the sexiness of this dress, though, as the sultry satin sheen and subtle body-conscious fabric alludes to a svelte and sexy body shape. Team LBD recommend adding a splash of cool colour with bright blue accessories -for our video we used Bourne's Natalia Shoe in Blue, a great way to brighten up any little black dress.
