Style over 50: 7 of my favourite Little Black Dresses

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

It’s that time of year when I take out my Little Black Dresses to dress up (or down) for the party season. I’m always tempted to add another to my collection- here’s a selection available to choose from at the moment.


I love the simplicity of this dress from Gorgeous Couture – it doesn’t have sleeves but it does give coverage at the upper arms – I think this is a great timeless classic to have in the wardrobe

This Bardot style dress has looks chic AND covers the arms, it also has ruching to help minimise tums.

A great dress for dressing up in the evening and down in the day – I have in several colours – including black and have got so much wear out of them. Flattering neckline, sleeves, and ruching to help minimise lumps and bumps!
