A fashion essential: the little black dress

Every woman should have a little black dress in her wardrobe. It is a fashion essential that goes a long way. From 9 to 5 to After 5, little black dresses serve a very versatile purpose and helps keep us fashion forward.

The little black dress is essential because it is flexible enough to be worn for just about any occasion: black tie affairs, intimate social gatherings and casual times that call for something simple, yet elegant. The outfit can be dressed up or down depending on your selection of shoes, jewelry and whether a jacket accompanies the ensemble; however, it will not hurt to have several different styles to choose from whenever possible.
Having a simple black dress on hand is not only practical, but appropriate for those unexpected last minute business functions. Choosing the right accentuating pieces will give you an opportunity to develop your own unique style. One dress can go a long way with a variety of coordinating elements like earrings, bracelets, necklaces and maybe even a scarf.
From high-heels to low ones, dinner to dancing, the little black dress can be transformed to meet your needs for any event. Along with the right accessories and some creativity, it’s the perfect choice! So experiment… if you dare!
