I know many of us love the tried and tested LBD and I agree that it is useful to have one in our wardrobes. I have had a Nicole Farhi chiffon version that I have had for many years.
Black is an easy option it goes with everything and is a good staple if you are travelling. All you need to do is add a stunning piece of jewellery a pair of black pumps and you are ready to go. A shawl or pashmina can add some colour near the face if black is not your most flattering colour.
If you still want to wear black I have selected a few options to the dress, most of the styles come in other colours should you want to add a little pazaz to the holiday season.

I so rarely wear dresses anymore and am always happy to see some chic alternatives! Lovely choices and accessories.
Nice outfits! Black is my perennial favorite. Either in pants or dresses. Great styling!
Love your suggestions. I absolutely never wear dresses anymore..love the pretty lace top!
What is LBD?
Seems I don’t keep up with the latest in fashion terminology.
Hi Jeannine Apologies I should have explained LBD stands for Little Black Dress often a staple in a woman’s wardrobe that can be the default go to piece for many social occasions.
Trousers for me, not always black top though, colour is good too!
This post was very nice. This was post was very interesting. It was very nice to read this post.
And the accessories shown above are very nice and in a perfect combination.
Brilliant idea, and trousers do away with the wearing of wretched tights, the problem of what dress length and appropriate shoes. I’m all in favour!
I struggle at this time of the year and indeed anytime because having had “my colours done” I really can’t wear black- it drains me even if I accessorise with colour near my face. Can you suggest some alternatives in navy perhaps?
Nice outfits – particularly a fan of the jumpsuit!
