Autumn Winter 2013 saw a darker mood on the catwalk, with the film noir heroine being a major trend. Cue beautiful ladylike frocks, prim silhouettes and structured tailoring, with a sexy, slightly dangerous edge. With this trend in mind I have put together a rather luxurious round-up of little black ladylike dresses.
Temperley London took inspiration from Hitchcock starlet Tippi Hendren this season, and I love this Black Silk Mesh Romy Dress. With sexy sheer panelling, delicate bodice detail, and the bold chevron stripe skirt makes this frock a sassy addition to any woman’s wardrobe.
Russian label Vilshenko has created this gorgeous Black Lace Silk Lara Dress which is sure to bring out the femme fatale in any woman, with a beautiful detailed lace bodice and diaphanous skirt, long sheer polka dot sleeves and demure high neck, this little black number is the epitome of elegance.
For a little more vamp look no further than this Black Mesh Kai Dress from Priory Of Ten. With a daring cut-out mesh top and sleek pencil skirt this lbd oozes sultry sophistication. Wear with bags of confidence and a deep red lip.
