Our three favourite LBDs

Here are JournoBarbie we want to help make the festive season as stress free as possible, so here are our three favourite little black dress options from three of the best online retailers (so you won’t even have to battle through the crowds on the high street).


Lace Peter Pan collar dress £40

One of our favourite looks this festive season, girly! Christmas isn’t Christmas without a little bit of sparkle. Teaming up a feminine lacey dress with matching shoes and a spangly handbag… simple yet chic.

Karen Millen clutch bag £120

Wear your hair down for a more casual look, with natural make-up, a simple clutch or over the shoulder bag and tights. The lacey trim will do all the work to make the outfit special enough for the holiday season.

Or for full on Audrey Hepburn class, team the outit with a classic updo and sparkly earrings. Think Rebecca from X Factor. Back-combed bouffant or tousled side bun all up-dos will accentuate your shoulders and neckline.

Lace court shoe £30

This silver Karen Millen clutch would be a gorgeous gift for ourselves for Christmas too. (Thanks Santa!!)

The matching lace shoes are a bargain at only £30 too but look designer-esque…smiles all round.


One shoulder frill dress £40

Oli has a massive range of LBDs, featured on the front page of the website for speedy access too.

Silver sequin Suzy Smith clutch/shoulder bag £35

This is our favourite look for the holiday period: full on glamour.

The cut of this black satin dress is perfect for showing off hour-glass figures (and the stitching detail is going to accentuate this).

The only downside is that the hem line may leave your legs a bit chilly. Try teaming up with sheer tights for a Beyonce sheen.

Take the glamour all the way by teaming up with sparkly heels and a matching bag. Don’t over do it with the glitz by toning down the accessories – sparkles on the bag and shoes or the jewellery – we don’t want more tinsel than the tree!

Silver sparkle shoes £40

Oli is packed with low price dresses and accessories meaning that most outfits come around the hundred pounds mark, which is what we like to hear.

This dress is perfect for you body-confident ladies – this outfit is one to WORK IT!


Long sleeve sequin detail tunic dress £46

TopShop as per usual have a fantastic selection of fashion forward LBDs. This tunic style dress is one of our favourites from the current party season collection.

Tan peeptoe sandal ('Pancho') £90

Taking boho, 60s chic to sexy new levels, sheer sleeves cover the worst of bingo-wing sins, and the loose fit will disguise even the most full of Christmas dinner tummies!

The sequin details add a bit of festive sparkle without going too far if you prefer simple chic.

Here at JournoBarbie we have chosen to match this stunning tunic up with tan peep toe sandals and a fringed bag enhancing the retro vibe.

Team up with sparkly heels and jewels for a more glamorous look, or boots and thick tights for a casual day-time look.

Tan leather fringe bag £32

This outfit goes straight to number one of the JournoBarbie wish list because it is just so versatile.

These three looks should cover almost all occasions over the festive period… now where’s that Christmas pudding..!?
