There are several reasons why the black dress has always been a woman’s go-to option - namely their versatility and ability to instantly create a slimming silhouette. Our selection showcases the very best of these wardrobe staples, with a spotlight on unique necklines, meticulous tailoring and the delightfully elegant accents that give them the WHBM flair.
A classic black dress is hallmarked by the fact it can be worn as part of a workday or weekend ensemble. Timeless profiles, modest hemlines, and fuss-free embellishments come together to create designs that can effortlessly be dressed up or down. Explore knitted sheath dresses that have a comfortable stretch, and sleeveless tank dresses that pair perfectly with either smart office blazers or an elevated leather jacket. We’ve played on the notion that black is always slimming, highlighting this feature with body perfect fabric and those that are fitted with subtle shapewear to enhance your figure. If your style errs on the feminine side, you’ll love our subtle tailored details that give minimalist pieces their ladylike profiles. Opt for boat necklines, three-quarter-length sleeves and flared skirts.
A Modern take on the classic look
There’s nothing easier than slipping on a Little Black Dress with your favorite heels when heading to social events, but if you’re looking to upgrade your go-to options, then explore our selection of formal styles. A change of neckline is the perfect way to bring your look into the present. Indulge in the adventurous with eye-catching cold shoulder fit-and-flare dresses, or turn to our sweeping maxi dresses, complete with barely-there halter straps. You’ll find smart keyhole details on blouson-style designs, and portrait collars on midi-length pieces that have a delightful vintage-inspired flair.
Alternatives to the Little Black Dress
Add depth to your repertoire of sophisticated eveningwear by choosing from our range of form-fitting jumpsuits. These all-in-one garments are constructed with the same meticulous tailoring seen within our dresses and workwear suiting, ensuring a refined profile. Wide-cut legs have a beautiful movement to them, and details along the waistline, such as oversized sashes or contrasting trims, help to accentuate an hourglass figure. Team with matching black accessories, perhaps a high-shine clutch and velvet heels to pull together a sleek and high-end evening attire.
