Fashion – Dressing down the LBD

I spend the majority of my life wearing not so comfortable clothing and shoes in an effort to look professional in an office.  When it comes to weekends it’s all about comfort… You will rarely catch me in a dress on weekends but when you do it is all about dressed down comfort.

A little black dress is a staple in any woman’s wardrobe and it is pretty simple to make them work for your weekend wear as well as office and evening outings too.  You can’t look relaxed unless you are comfortable so firstly pick a LBD that is stretchy or loose and practical.  Secondly pick something to throw over the top or tie around the waist (or both).  I find denim jackets, kimono jackets or chambray/linen/flannelette shirts work well due to their streetwear appeal.  Pick slouchy, casual accessories over anything more structured – beanies, bucket bags, fedoras, carry-alls will add to the laid back nature of this look.

Throw on your favorite sneakers and away you go!
