Fashion tips video : Think of your little black dress differently – wear trousers underneath


Article by Ceri Wheeldon

LBD worn with flared trousers

Be stylish over 50 in a budget! The Little Black Dress project is all about being creative and getting more wear out of the clothes already hanging in our wardrobes , just by being creative in the way we put our outfits together,

One of the reasons I chose this particular dress was its versatility. The ruching really enables you to adjust the length, and as I have done here , turn it into a top in seconds.

In creating this 70s retro look I have simply placed a polo necked body and flared trousers under the dress, ruched up the dress itself and voila! The little black dress becomes a little black top!!

 

 

 The black dress I have used throughout this video series is from Ceme London.  They have offered fab after Fifty readers a 10% discount off their non-sale items if you use the code  FAF10 at the checkout. I have bought a number of their dresses with sleeves over the past 2 years – they are fab 🙂
