Everybody’s heard of the the LBD, but sometimes you need a plan B. Meet the LPD – the little party dress. Super cute, super stylish and forever flattering, having an LPD in your wardrobe rotation is a sure way to stay ahead of the fashion pack.
Whether your style is more sleek and satin or something a little more demure like sheer detailing, choosing one trend and nailing is key to party dressing. So before you have a Friday night meltdown, nail these key LPD looks and thank us later.
Satin is a staple in our weekend wear wardrobes at Showpo HQ. Sleek, subtle and a little bit sexy, if it’s satin, we want one in every colour.
Okay, we know we’ve given the LBD a bit of a hard time, but these LBD x LPD crossovers are an it-girl essential. Off-the-shoulder or low at the back, there are a million ways to make these black dresses stand out in a crowd. They’ll instantly match the accessories you already own and are the best excuse to perfect your smokey eye look.
Sick of your mum reminding you to take a jacket whenever you leave the house? We’ve got the answer. A long-sleeved mini. The perfect amount of coverage meets the ultimate dance floor-ready dress with this combo. Style with your fave pair of barely-there heels and never wonder what to wear again.
You know what they say, it’s all in the details. You can’t go wrong with a touch of sheer detailing on your LPD. Whether you’re opting for something floral or something that screams wine o’clock (it is the colour of the season after all), these dresses can easily take you from day to night.
Make ’em green with envy is the colour that literally suits everyone. Whether you prefer a true emerald green or want to mix it up with a pop of teal, this is the colour missing in your current rotation. Perfectly complimented by nude accessories and a warm makeup look, you’ll wonder why you weren’t wearing green sooner.
It’s no secret we love a full glam look and an LPD should be no exception. Go full disco ball in silver sequins or add a touch of shine with a hint of glitter.
Whoever said print is dying has obviously never seen these LPDs. The ultimate combo of fresh and fun, a printed dress is the easiest way to get maximum appeal for minimum effort. Keep your accessories basic and you’ll have a look you will want to wear on repeat.
