[dropcap letter=”A”]s spring comes to an end and the weather is (hopefully) getting warmer, occasions for dressing up are approaching rapidly. Graduation and summer formals both provide options for smart clothing, although in different ways. Luckily, Little Black DressÂ have many different collections and dresses to help make finding a graduation and/or summer formal dress easy.Â Bonus: the store offers free delivery in the UK on all orders.
One great option for graduation dresses is the Cameron dress from the Little Black Dress Collection. Inspired by the actress Cameron Diaz, this blush coloured, form-fitting gown is perfect to wear under a robe without adding extra bulk. With a jewelled belt sown around, it is easy to take from a daytime graduation ceremony to a nighttime party. For cooler evenings, pair with a black cardigan, dainty, rose-gold jewellery, and soft makeup and curls. Other great celebrity-inspired options from the Little Black Dress Collection for graduation include the Rachel, Natalie, Zooey, and Dakota. All are options that move well from day to night and can help to maintain a nice look without being overly dressed-up.
From Little Black Dress’ Eden Row collection, the Cambridge dress provides another stylish choice for graduation parties and ceremonies. The simple black dress has a unique v-shaped neckline and capped sleeves. Since the dress is black, bold jewellery of any color would pair well. For nighttime parties, consider adding bold red or purple lipstick and matching heels. This dress also works as it can transition into a look for work and office days post-graduation. Adding a blazer or a colored cardigan and pumps is an easy way to transition this look to the office while keeping the simple, cool vibe the dress sends.
For theÂ fancier, summer formal look, the Little Black Dress FelicityÂ gown is perfect for a long option. The lace gown is affordable as well, making it a perfect and easy choice. The rose color is flattering for all skin tones, and the lighter color and sequins make the dress summery despite the length, as does the lace. Since it has a higher neckline, pair it with long pearls to keep the flowery, feminine look going, as well as a soft, curled updo. The Rita dress is a perfect formal option that is less girly and more sporty than the Felicity gown. Black and floor-length, the high neckline is made up for by the dramatic low back. Sheer lace and sequin panels instantly give an hourglass figure, and the skirt is infused with black mesh to give the dress more swing â€” perfect for dancing the night away at formal. Pair this dress with a sleek, long ponytail and a dramatic lip color.
