The Little Black Dress Boutique

Trends may come and go, but the LBD is a style staple that has passed the test of time. With so many variations on the ‘look’, be it a spot of embellishment or a piece of peplum, it’s easy to update for a new era, particularly with the Debenhams options in our LBD boutique. Do you have one hanging in your wardrobe?
This season we’ve got a fabulous range of Little Black Dresses – it’s an LBD boutique of style. The versatility of the LBD means it can apply to any soiree, any season – and is never more at home than at the forthcoming festive parties.

The LBD really is the dress for all occasions. For the party season combining yours with a vampy pair of heels and chandelier earrings will turn you into a modern-day femme fatale or, if you opt for a dress with added sparkle, you could be attracting that boy to mistletoe faster than the three kings could follow that star.

The beauty of the LBD is that, no matter what the invitation stipulates, it can always be accessoried to suit. Classic and simple, glamorous and opulent – either can work. Our very own Designers at Debenhams offer long sleeved, short sleeved, mini, midi, strapless or sparkly. Think old-school Hollywood glamour à la Elizabeth Taylor, or Kate Middleton on an official outing, and it’s hard not to fall in love with the LBD’s timeless appeal.
After all, once in a while, every girl should head to the dark side of style…
