Now, if you're yet to own one or more in your wardrobe, here are five reasons why the little black dress is a must-have and why you need one asap!.

1. It's versatile!
As already stated the LBD is that piece that one can take from day to night, to church, to work or even a party depending on the specific style or how one styles it.
2. It's easy
Given its versatility, the LBD is something one can throw on when in doubt of what to wear. I mean why bother stressing about what to wear when you have a little black dress.

3. Great Layering Piece
When styling outwear or even thinking of upgrading an outfit, the little black dress is the perfect basic to start with and layer over.
4. One for All
In addition to the fact that black already gives you an extra slimming effect which is oh so flattering on the body, the LBD can suit everybody type depending on the fit. 


5. Always Trendy
It never goes out of style! Trends may come and go but this is one piece that will always remain a classic for all the above-stated reasons.

I hope with these few points, you're all set to get yourself this closet essential!

What sold me about this dress was the lace flared sleeves, you all know how much I love this trend. In styling, I paired it with my go-to belt and my lace-up sandals from Things Nigerians Love. This look is proudly made in Nigeria and I'm so impressed. My dress linked below is currently going for 50% off on Jumia Nigeria for less than 5k. If you don't already own an LBD, here's your chance to get one and if you already own one, why not get more. I plan on adding a lot more in different styles to my growing collection of dresses!

I'll end this post by once again reminding all of us how much of a scam social media is. Please let's work to never get caught up in portraying a false reality while dying in silence. Recieve strength to walk away from things that no longer grow you and have the courage to always stay true to yourself #Notetoself #Sarahspeaks.
