Capsule Wardrobe: LBD Summer/Winter Styling Idea

Ah the little black dress, our faithful, dependable go to dress, when you have one of those days where you simply hate everything you own - we've all been there!


However, in summer it's simple enough to just slip it on, no fuss, but winter can be another matter. That's where a investment like a trench coat comes into play. In wool or a sumptuous velvet they can really make a statement on your arrival - so you don't feel the need to take it off and hide it in the coat check the moment you are warm indoors.
