The ‘little black dress’ often finds itself a staple of the sexy or the elegant or the minimalist. It’s less often a piece you think of as lending itself well to sporty. But sports-chic can be anything, really; it’s in the accessorising, in the attitdue. It’s a state of mind.

This particular take on the LBD from Witchery is made from a sturdy bonded neoprene fabric that hugs the body beautifully. It’s sporty without compromising on femininity; the ruffled skirt flounced upwards with each step, revealing a contrasting white underside.
