Little black dresses are a girl's ultimate weapon for any occasion. When styled right, it can be spruced up or dressed down. The challenge, however, lies in choosing the right style. And in case your favorite retail shops fail you, you can always have one made especially for you. Case in point: Camille Co's sheer LBD number.
If you need reminding, Camille is a professional fashion designer before she became internet-famous as a style blogger. And knowing that, we take notes from her very own creation. We already love the gown on its own because it illustrates the perfect balance of volume. Knowing the tiered bottom part of the gown would render the piece a little heavy on the eyes, Camille opted for a sheer bustier top to give the ensemble a sultry look without overdoing it. The ruffled straps make for a great accent on her decolletage, without the need for necklaces. We also like how these straps seamlessly incorporate a thin veil that added just the right amount of drama to the dress.
Another thing we absolutely love about this dress is its versatility. Here are a number of ways you can wear it: (1) first, at a formal event, as demonstrated by Camille; (2) you can also go a tad less formal—lose the train and layer it over a white tee and slip into a pair of white trainers; (3) or, trim the tiered ruffles to knee-length and add a statement jacket for a cocktail event; (4) you can also separate the ruffled bottom from the bustier and wear them as coordinates; (5) and lastly, if you need more ideas, just ditch the ruffled skirt entirely and wear the bustier as a layering piece.
So convenient, right?
