LBD Style All Wrapped Up
No capsule wardrobe is complete without an occasion dress that can handle all of your calendar calls. Whether it’s a date night, a girls night or a networking event, there is one style in particular that’s become synonymous with stylish eveningwear – the Little Black Dress.
A good little black dress will give you classic elegance, timeless beauty and a palette you can style with everything. So dress to impress with these distinctive LBD looks!
Always a pioneer of female style, Coco Chanel was first credited with creating the little black dress. Chic yet simple, Chanel’s LBD made style accessible to all women and as champions of inclusive fashion, that’s
exactly the spirit of an L&F LBD too!
Perfect for sipping cocktails in, the Mavis Dress wraps the body in elegant luxury. Her wrap front adds definition to the waist while her short sleeves and the playful pockets concealed within the folds of her fluid skirt, nod to Chanel’s practical modernism.
Give your look sway and play up the movement of her bias-cut ruffle hem to maximum effect!
The most versatile of dress shapes, the design benefits of wrap-front dresses triumph for eveningwear. Giving subtle drama, the soft V line of the crossover front naturally contours the bust, to frame the decolletage with subtle drama. Meanwhile, the waist-cinching belt emphasises hourglass curves by drawing in the silhouette at the narrowest point. A softly flowing skirt finishes the look with feminine grace.
For high impact eveningwear glamour, try a full skirted look. The Maree Dress, with her full skirt and flattering knee-grazing hemline, will have you gliding like Ginger Rogers - graceful at every turn.
"One is never overdressed or underdressed in a little black dress." - KARL LAGERFELD
Her soft-touch jersey wrapping the silhouette in the shadow of a midnight filled with music, the Etta Dress oozes Studio 54 cool. She’s red-carpet ready and moves like she means business so make your entrance and get heads turning!
Anchoring the look, Etta’s fixed wrap front ruches flatteringly with a sunray of gathers. Slinky ¾ sleeves power up the shoulders and arms to give a definitive silhouette while her straight skirt, elegant to the knee, adds executive glamour.
Styling Tip: Give this look the edge with accessories that get straight to the point – think pointy-toed shoes (stilettos if you can stand it!), envelope bags and long-drop jewellery.

I’d been eyeing the Tallula dress in Palms for some time. When my size was available in the sale I took the plunge. I’m so happy I did the golden colours are rich & striking. Feels amazing on, glad I tried something a little different.
I bought the skirt in the equinox print from the sales , as I have the top to match. This way I can have a few different looks from two pieces. It’s such a versatile skirt as it can be casual or dressed up depending on the shoes. Great fit and the fabric is so slinky. I am short but it’s a beautiful Maxi on me, just love how light and cool this skirt is.
A classy turtle neck for the extra warmth and coverage. Beautiful natural fibres in bamboo.
Beautiful whimsey print in a turtle neck adds class and warmth all at the same time!
This beautiful arm length and round neck make it conservative for the office and great with a pair of jeans for weekend running around!
I purchased the Bianca in candy floss and it’s really nice! I love the tie at the front as you can really cinch in the waist ( my best feature) and of course as usual the fabric is beautiful and of high quality. I am usually a 10 but have lost weight so the 8 is perfect and there’s stretch in the jersey too. I can see lots of wear in this item over the holidays when we go road tripping. I thoroughly recommend the Bianca
Amazing soft natural fibres. Conservative neckline so perfect for work when the v necks are a little to deep. Love it!
Thrilled with the Aspen top, really hoping it comes out in some bright colours! I’m 176cm and a size 8, and I find other L&F tops with the shirt-tail hemline are too short in the torso for me, but this is perfect - so I’d encourage any other tall ladies to give this one a try!
Beautiful fabric, lovely colour which will pair with so many other pieces. So comfortable and easy to wear. A keeper
I bought the lilac and saffron with the intention of returning one, but I'm keeping both. Honestly, these shrugs are one of those pieces that you put on with a t-shirt and jeans and feel fantastic, and the sleeves cover the elbow (one of my non-negotiables). I got the size 22 as that's my bra size, but its a bit snug across my broad shoulders (still wearable, just pulls the sleeves up a bit when you bring them up and forward). Next time I'll get the 24. PLEASE do in other colours...green, navy, jewel colours. Just fantastic, so thanks!
The river colorway goes well with jeans or more formal work wear. The perfect summer top - always looks so finished AND pretty!
So pleased with the deep green colour. Not my first Daphne, such a versatile style of dress!
Lovely shirt . Fabric soft and flowy . Great for work . Creases show less than on the Hunter version of the shirt and the fabric on this one seems softer too . Pleased with my purchase.
This lightweight Blazer is perfect for trans-seasonal days ... or for sun-protection as suggested by L&F. The breathable fabric makes it comfortable to wear, and I love it's stylish cut. It looks great over my longer dresses (I was wondering how it would go) ... and looks swish with my long pants too.
Lovely dress - true to size (12) and 156cm tall. Happy with my purchase.
