Jones + Jones presents the perfect LBD

Oh-so-chic, oh-so-easy to wear and oh-so-flattering, the Jones + Jones Abi dress is the perfect LBD for this spring/summer (and forever more to be honest!).

The LBD never dates and this one is perfect for the office with a blazer and some ballet pumps, but add some killer heels, et voilà a stunning look for after work cocktails!

The Jones + Jones Abi dress is available in black as pictured and in charcoal grey

Nothing says classy and sophisticated like a black dress and to illustrate our point here are some of our favourites from the past couple of weeks…

The stunning Gemma Arterton at the Mulberry A/W 2011 after-party

Now we know this isn’t strictly a LBD but it is a fabulous black dress with a beautiful ribbon waist band so we had to include it! Clémence Poésy looking very chic at the Mulberry A/W 2011 after-party

If you want to add a splash of colour or texture to a LBD then take inspiration from Claire Danes at a pre-Oscars party and add a statement necklace.

The Abi dress is available on our website, on our section on the Topshop website and in our Topshop concessions now! And don’t say we never treat you…as some of our lovely and loyal customers may have not been paid yet, we have extended our offer of £1 for all UK Standard deliveries until Thursday!

It’s all about the after-party…

Now don’t get me wrong, the glamour and beauty of the Oscars 2011 ceremony and red carpet was outstanding ( the Jones + Jones office has a huge style crush on Mila Kunis!) but some of the best outfits were definitely at the after-parties. The biggest trend of the after-parties was metallics – gold or silver or gold and silver, anything went!

The Jones + Jones office have a few favourites that we’d like to share with you…

Available in our Last Chance To Buy section on our website, you will find a treasure trove of glamorous party dresses including the Cindy Skirt in silver or gold pleats, which is now only £10.00 (wear with a tight black body top for an on-trend look) and the Phoebe Dress in silver or gold, which is now only £20.00 (X Factor couldn’t get enough of either of these styles!)!

Jones + Jones would like to treat you all by offering £1 for all UK Standard deliveries, which means you can spend more on pampering yourself and accessorising your Jones + Jones outfit!

For inspiration for accessorising your Jones + Jones outfit, the belted waist was seen on LFW catwalks this week for A/W 2011, as mentioned in our Jones + Jones blog on Tuesday. Follow in the major fashion and celebrity trend by adding a tan belt over a glamourous dress for a perfect, on-trend look for a night out!

If you’re looking for a more casual look, take inspiration from the Jones + Jones office’s style favourite, Olivia Palermo who combined a maxi skirt and jumper with a tan belt for a relaxed and chic look at the Matthew Williamson A/W 2011 show.

We particularly recommend accessorising the the Jones + Jones Air Dress with a tan waist belt as it is free size so it drops beautifully around any figure but you can accentuate your waist with a belt to add curves . The Jones + Jones Air Dress is available in cream lace, black lace, snake skin print, white, black and red, so there are plenty of options to choose from!
