7 Reasons Why YOU Should Wear Little Black Dresses At Prom!

By Adrian Leighton

Why Wearing Little Black Dresses To Prom Is A Great Idea For Any Girl!

little black dresses for prom

Who doesn't love little black dresses? They're the classic dress style that you can just never go wrong with! I'm sure we've all got them in our closet (at least one surely?), but have you considered that they could be a good option for prom?

If you're in the position that many prom-goers find themselves in, where you just can't seem to find a prom dress that's 'just so,' then why not consider wearing little black dresses?

What Should I Know About Little Black Dresses?

If you don't know the strengths of little black dresses yet, then take a look at these:

  1. Black goes with everything, making it so much easier to choose accessories and make-up!
  2. It's a flattering color that will help any shape or size to look and feel great!
  3. LBDs are available in many different styles, fit for any taste and event.

Taking all of these factors into account, you can see why prom is a good event to wear an LBD! Many girls will be wearing very big prom dresses that have their place of course, but you can look cool, stylish, and unique in your LBD. Also, if you do pick up a new one, then you're going to be pleased as an LBD can be worn time and time again, whereas finding a less than formal occasion where you can re-wear your prom dress is going to be rarer!

What Kinds Of Little Black Dresses Suit Me?

It's a good question! Now that we know why little black dresses are a good choice for a prom dress, it's time to look at 7 different LBDs to suit almost any girl's shape. Can you find yourself in this list?

1. A-line Little Black Dresses For Bottom Heavy Girls

The great thing about A-line little black dresses is that they skirt over your lower half, meaning that they're very flattering for girls with a bottom-heavy figure. Some straps or a strapless design will also draw the eye to your upper body, decreasing the amount of attention on your lower half!

Here's a good example:

2. Choose Sleeves If You Wish To Cover Your Arms

Many people think that sleeves look very old-fashioned and will age you, certainly not what you want at prom! However there are many little black dresses with sleeves that look stylish and will help you to feel more confident about your arms.

Such as this style:

3. LBDs For Plus Sizes

Having curves doesn't mean that you can't join the fun with an LBD! On the contrary, there are heaps of styles that you can choose from that are flattering, and will disguise any extra curves! Just keep fabrics light, choose a flowy design that's not too snug, and consider some sleeves and you're all good!

Here's a nice one:

4. Cover Your Legs

If your legs aren't your strong point then you'll want to choose a longer little black dress, but don't worry as you've got a lot of options! Not all LBDs are super short, and you can see that this has a pretty illusion asymmetrical dress!

5. Flattering For Bigger Busts

You know what they say, "If you've got it, flaunt." This is the key to looking great for top heavy girls, so you'll want to focus on LBDs with a V-neck, portrait, or square neck.

Look at this portrait style below and you'll see why it flatters a fuller bust.

6. Flattering For Smaller Busts

On the other hand if you have a smaller bust then you'll need to choose a little black dress that gives your chest a subtle boost. Think decoration, as elements like ruffles, ruching, bows, etc, will add some bulk there and help to balance your figure.

This LBD has a lot of ruffles, and is the ideal illustration of how they can give you more 'size' up top to balance with your lower body.

7. Good LBDs For Skinny Girls

There's nothing wrong with being thin, but it can mean that your profile lacks curves and the feminine sexiness that comes with them. In this case you'll want to choose an LBD that can boost your body's natural shape, so think a belt to cinch in your waist and create an hourglass silhouette. Ruffles, peplums, and various other decorations that add volume to the dress are also your allies in this!

The belt on the dress below gives your wasit definition, and the tiered skirt adds shape to your silhouette.

If none of these types describe you then that's fine, most little black dresses are likely to suit you, so it's just a case of finding one that you love!

Real OuterInner Customer Reviews: Susan Shi's Little Black Dress

Susan Shi's Little Black Dress

By Adrian Leighton We've just recieved some lovely pictures and review from a customer of ours in South Bay, California. Susan Shi is a violin teacher and she bought a little black dress to wear during some of the performances that she's involved in. Let's take a look at her comments and nice pictures: Here's what Susan said:
I bought this black dress recently and I love it very much! I think that the material is good quality and it actually didn't cost me too much as I remembered. So I would say that it's really worth it! I teach violin at a music studio in the South Bay Area of California, and I also do some performance for special events, so a dress like this is perfect for those times. The night I was wearing it that you can see in the pictures I felt very confident and happy by the compliments from all the friends and guests. I just love this dress! I would like to be a customer of OuterInner.com again in the near future for my next concert! Susan
Now let's see Susan wearing her little black dress:

The Surprising Truth About Your Little Black Dress

Facts You Never Knew About Your Little Black Dress

Audrey Hepburn in her trademark little black dress
What is a little black dress to you? A timeless classic? That faithful dress that's always the first to get tried on for a party? One thing's for sure, the LBD is going nowhere and has been a style icon since the days of the 50s bombshells like Audrey hepburn who you can see above in one of her famous little black dresses. Despite the little black dress being immensely popular and only in one colour, a recent survey of 2000 women featured in the 'Mail online' is quite an eye-opener, as it suggests that it takes us a lot longer to choose an LBD than you may think! Let's take a look. LBDs are beloved of many celebrities like Victoria Beckham here, who is often seen in them:

Finding And Keeping An LBD Is A Labor Of Love

Believe it or not, the survey showed that finding a new LBD will take the average woman a massive 30 hours of shopping! That's 5 full days! Does it take you that long to find a new dress? That's not all though, as it suggests that the average woman parts with nearly US$200 per dress and only wears it twice because she's worried about being seen in the same dress too many times!

The Little Black Dress Is The Commando Of Your Wardrobe

An interesting fact to come out of this was that '8 out of 10 women claim to own an LBD,' thinking that no wardrobe is complete without it. Do you agree, or are you not an LBD fan? However most LBDs are almost never worn, rather spending an average of 11 years in your wardrobe. So it seems that just having an LBD ready for action, should there ever be an occasion where it's needed, is enough to make most of us feel satisfied with our wardrobes! If you'd like to see the whole article you can read it here. So do you fit the profile of the women interviewed here? How often do you wear your little black dress? Let us know by leaving a reply please :-)
