It’s a sad, sad day when our favourite LBD is no longer shop-fresh. It’s even sadder when our LBD goes dull in the wash, and looks more like a LGD, (Little Grey Dress.) The LBD is a wardrobe essential, and a great one can be worn again and again with different accessories and layering styles, to keep your look ever-evolving.

But, using the right washing methods with Ariel will help to keep your blacks black and keep your colours bright.

So, do a Kim K and make your LBD stand the test, for flawless looks with great cost per wear value. We’ve teamed up with Ariel to bring you 3 killer looks that will pass the Little Black Dress test.

Go Bold


A sure-fast way to go bold is to team your LBD with some colourful knits. For a day out with the girls, go for a chunky jumper and some bright accessories in vivid colours, while a glamorous fur scarf will never go amiss.

Chic For Work


A stylish office shirt with statement sleeves under your LBD is certain to up your workwear game to a whole new level. Feminine heels, delicate jewellery and a leather bag will add more to the look and say: chic professional.

Dress Down ‘Cool Girl’

Nothing says ‘cool girl’ like denim and trainers. For a causal night at the pub, chuck on a white tee and pair your LBD with a laid-back denim jacket and statement clutch.
