3 Ways To Wear: The Camera Ready LBD


Kate Hudson said it best herself: “An LBD is the sexiest staple in your closet.” And her line of LBDs designed exclusively for us is, well, sexy. But in addition to helping you look and feel your best on special occasions, her line of LBDs can work for more than just your standard Girls’ Night Out or Date Night — these little numbers work for so many occasions! We took the Camera Ready, a sexy sheath with detailed cut-outs and a mock neck, to three dressed-up (but very different) events:

1. Ballet: Take your LBD to a night (or matinée) at the Ballet. A laid-back linen sweater keeps an AC-induced chill at bay, plus the mock neck of the dress will look chic peeking over the sweater’s boatneck. A pale pink Town Clutch is a nod to classic ballet colors, but its contrast with the black dress is just casual and funky enough to set your outfit apart. Finish it off with our Brownwen Leather Wedges — they add an edge to the outfit, but are completely comfortable so you can go, go, go all night long.

2. Bridal Shower: Make your LBD work for a dressy day event with a softly textured scarf, sharp sunnies, and a bright, elegant card case for the essentials. Cap toe flats keep the look polished but decidedly dressed down.

3. Benefit: If you need a striking nighttime look, let the Camera Ready LBD do the talking for you. An armful of bangles, a matching clutch, and sensationally strappy sandals are the perfect extras.
