Here's The Only Made To Order LBD You Need To Buy This Year

The very special fitted strappy dress! Check it out in closer detail over here

I think it was Posh Spice who first introduced me to the concept of the ‘little black dress’. She wore it strapless and body-hugging or short and painted on. Posh looked so great in her LBDs but she also made me kinda terrified of LBDs because I definitely did not have the chutzpah to pull these racy dresses off.

I’ve spent most of my adult life avoiding dresses that are little and black as a direct result of Posh but I think I’ve just discovered something that’s going to change my whole world: the perfect LBD. Behold:

The linen dress follows the contours of the body, without strangling them, and has darts in all the right places. (I still don’t know what darts are but my mum always said they were important and she knows her stuff.) The simple a-line cut is finished with a neat square neckline and thin adjustable straps. Unlike every other dress ever made for a human woman, it also has pockets — yes, two of them. Oh, and did I mention it was linen? All these qualities make it both practical and comfortable, two qualities that I value in all things, especially dresses.

This perf LBD is made to order by designer Mimi Holvast in her Bangalow studio. That makes it a pretty special LBD. In fact, I think there should be a new category of LBD entered into the fashion dictionary in honour of this dress: the PSLBD.  

At just $200, the LBD, which works by itself as well as layered over tops for those of us who don't live in a tropical paradise, is the only LBD you’ll need to buy this year.
