What To Wear With A Short LBD Dress


You’ve been there. I’ve been there. We’ve all been there. You’re about to head out for the night, when you have the annual “Wait…is this dress TOO short?!” freakout. Whether it’s that new pair of skyscraper heels you’re slaying, or your washing machine got a little overexcited on its last spin cycle, a short LBD dress can give you a real headache. If you’re unsure what to wear with a short LBD dress, the key is layering. 

Layering your outfit not only provides a high-fash inspired upgrade, it adds an extra layer of confidence as you can rest assured that the night won’t be spent starring in your own personal peep show. 

Winning the layering game is ultra-easy. Simply select a timeless style, throw it over your LBD, and watch as your outfit is instantly elevated. We recommend a tailored blazer, it’s giving CEO of your own wardrobe. A black blazer and LBD little black dress is the obvious choice, or you could try neutral hues for an eye-pleasing palette. Feeling bold? Splash a bright coloured blazer against your LBD for a real head-turner. 

As the colder months creep in, coats become essentials. Ensure you’re one step ahead by pairing your LBD dress with a floor sweeping duster coat, or wrap trench. Finish the look with flat boots and an oversized tote (and sunglasses if you’re feeling extra, even though there’s no sun to be seen).
