Meghan Markle is now one of the most photographed woman in the world, and her style choices are documented at every turn. 

Meghan is usually spotted in crisp shirts and €100 jeans, or in sweeping evening wear custom created by designers. 

It's well known that the Duchess likes to mix up her style with a high-low mix of brands and designers, but she opted for one of our go-to online retailers for her most recent look.

Meghan touched down in New Zealand this week on her Royal Tour of Australia, New Zealand and Tonga, and she looked divine in a well-cut little black dress.  

Meghan (or her style team) got the stunning dress, which fitted Meghan's curves and just showcased her groeing baby bump perfectly, from ASOS. 

The online retailer is selling the dress for only €48.00, and while Meghan is wearing the maternity version of the LBD, it also comes in regular sizes.

Versions of the dress also come in navy, red, mustard and baby blue. 

Meghan opted to pair hers with a Prince of Wales checked trench coat, and classic black pointed court shoes. 

Ideal for the office, or a night out, we clicked add to bag without a second thought. 



With Christmas just around the corner and party season practically upon us, it's time to get geared up for the most glamorous time of the year.

While this season is all about luxe velvet and unicorn sequins, it's also prime time to pull that little black dress out of the wardrobe and get your money's worth.

And as extravagant as this season's collection of party dresses may be, the accessories are to die for.

A great accessory has the power to transform any outfit, and we're proving this by spicing up our fave LBD with some of this season's most fabulous adornments.

For this style challenge, SHEmazing! opted to hit River Island – it's affordable and there are loads of festive-appropriate steals there at the moment.

Accessorise your LBD with a pom-pom choker and a glitter-encrusted box-bag, and voilá; a fresh, cute and quirky take on a classic look.

Happy outfit-planning, ladies!




When party season springs around, it can be difficult to choose what to wear.

Will I be too dressy? Too casual? Is this outfit too much? And most importantly, do I feel good/comfortable in it?

We'll admit that sometimes the best option is just to go with our good oul friend black. And then choose the structure, and fit to match your mood.

Here's seven great black dresses that are perfect for party season:

1. The Classic

If you're heading for the classic look, this dress is perfect. With an asymmetric neckline and peplum hem, it's like buying designer on the highstreet. Team with simple black heels and your fave jewellery and you're good to go.

ASOS Scuba One Shoulder Midi Dress – €50.67



2. The Preppy 

If you want to add a little bit of fun and funk into your look, we'd suggest something like this. It's not your usual crochet pattern and with the flesh neckline, you'll be turning heads. This is totally on our #WishList.

ASOS Endless Rose Lace High Neck Mini Dress – €80.00



3. The Glamorous

Need something for a glam night out? Then this is your best friend. Velvet is like party season's old reliable, and will look great whether you spent two hours or two minutes getting ready. And with the asymmetrical peplum waist, who's to know you ate all the cupcakes?

River Island Black Velvey 90s Frill – €87.00



4. The Cover-Up

We all know it can be super chilly around party season, and coming out of *da club* at 2am is no easy feat when you're freezing. This dress not only has an on-trend neck tie, but it has long sleeves too so you're guaranteed some comfort in it, without sacrificing any style points.

New Look Black Tie Neck Tunic Dress – €24.99



5. The Flirty

If you fancy being a little flirty during this time of year, this is perfect. Without giving away too much, the cut-out shoulder and slim fit will definitely have heads turning. Pop on some accessories and you're sorted.

New Look Black Cut Out Shouldere Bodycon – €29.99



6.The Shift

Now, we're not talking about the shift you get at Coppers, we're talking about the fab shift dress. This has stayed in season for so many years now purely because it suits every body type and it's really comfy. So whether you're sitting down to a big meal or grooving all night on the dance floor, the shift dress has you covered.

Penneys Black Long Sleeved Lace Dress – €19.00



7. The On-Trend

If you want to go with something that is very on-trend this season, the slip dress is what you need. This Topshop one is great as it has a bit of length, but you can also put a little top underneath if you're afraid you'll be too cold.

Ever since her appearance in Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines video, it’s been well-established that Emily Ratajkowski is pretty much the epitome of body goals.

And while the 25-year-old model wouldn’t be known for covering up, her latest ensemble really did leave little to the imagination.

Appearing at the Harper’s Bazaar New York Fashion Week party in The Plaza Hotel last night, the Californian actress was pictured working one of the most plunging dresses we’ve ever seen.

The fitted black sequined midi highlighted Emily’s curvaceous frame, while sizable nude-coloured mesh panels offered the star some protection against the risk of total upper-body exposure.

While the Gone Girl star seems to have gotten through the night without any major wardrobe malfunctions, with this dress not everyone would be so lucky.

We’ve all been there on a Friday night. Attempting to put together a last minute outfit when you just left the office, your phone is dead and everything is in the wash.

Chances are, at least once the wardrobe staple that has come to your rescue has been your favourite black dress.

We love them, we tend to feel a little lost when we’re missing one from our wardrobe, but so lost we would join a waiting list almost 1,000 people strong?

Ahm- we’re not entirely sure. Does this dress also charge our phone and make coffee?

No, the MM.LaFleur designed LBD does not in fact support your caffeine addiction but it that hasn’t stopped people from falling in love with it.

The Tory design was recently released and people have gone MAD trying to get their hands on one. For €210 – nope, it ain't cheap – this dress must be pretty special.

We will admit that it does look pretty amazing and yes, we would definitely grab one if we had the chance, but just why is there so much demand?

Bustle spoke to the editor-in-chief who told them that “word of mouth” is what drives their business. Also, this dress has “bonus” features:

“The wrap is secured and lined, so there's no risk of an in-office wardrobe malfunction.”

It is also “wrinkle-resistant” and “eco-friendly” while designed to “keep you cool all year-round,” that’s a lot of buzz words for one dress. A dress which won’t be on sale until 2016.

Hello Giggles pointed out that this dress reminds them of InStyle’s report that Kate Middleton’s ME+EM top had a 14-week long waiting list, and the item sold out. Maybe it is a great advertising scheme, but it has certainly made people curious.



If there is one wardrobe essential all women MUST have, it is definitely a little black dress. You will have it forever, and love it forever. Here are five reasons why you must invest in a LBD.

1. They are timeless
Black is always in fashion and loved by everyone. It will always be in your wardrobe and worn on a regular basis.

2. They go with every colour
You don't need to worry about over wearing it because you can change it up every time. Wear statement silver jewellery this weekend, and gold the next. Same dress, completely new outfit. 

3. They are safe and flattering
Black is perfect for flattering all body shapes and you don't need to stress about spilling your glass of red wine on it because it won't stain. Tan is also not a problem. 

4. You can wear it for different occasions
Black is one of those colours that can be dolled up to look night out ready, but also toned down for office style. You can do so much with a black dress, it all depends on how you choose to style it. Casual or dressy, without the hassle.

5. It can always be your emergency dress
Major occasion coming up but no nice dresses catching your eye? Go and grab that LBD and save yourself a moment of panic.
