A Little Black Dress(LBD) is one type of dress that anyone can pull off whether you are a newbie or a pro. Not only it is a good party dress but it can be worn for pretty much any occasion. This type of outfit is very easy to wear and comes in a variety of models like skater dress, drop waist, bodycon etc. A Little Black Dress can be worn by anyone of any age as long as the dress goes well with the body shape. Depending on the occasion you can either add on chunky statement jewelry or you can tone it down and go with the bare minimum.

For the outfit, I wore a little black dress with cowl neck and intricate gold detailings on the strap that I got from a local boutique here in Chennai. The fabric is thin lycra like material which is beyond perfect in accentuating the curves but it also emphasizes the problem areas which should be taken care of while buying. This midi dress highlights the legs so if you have long legs, this will be perfect for you. Wearing a cowl neck dress, I opted for a simple statement necklace and wore minimal accessories like a black-white statement earrings , a rose-gold watch and a gold skull cuff. You can add more accessories if you want but I wanted to keep it minimal. For the shoes, I opted for a pair of these sexy red stilettos which has snake skin like print on them for that extra pop of color.

Coming to the makeup, I very lightly applied powder foundation to even out my skintone and also added some pink blusher on the apples of my cheeks. For the eyes I applied charcoal grey-black matte eyeshadow on the lids and on the center of the eyelids added gold eyeshadow to throw in a little more color.
