Little black dresses are the ultimate staple when it comes to dressing for glamorous occasions. From weddings to holiday parties and even girls nights out and dinner dates, the little black dress has a life of its own.
Choosing the right black dress is pretty simple. One rule of thumb is to go with what works for one’s body shape and size. Taking into account style choices and ongoing trends, nothing transcends trends and fads like a chic black dress.
With brands like Alice & Olivia, Black Halo, Miguelina and others designing stylish black dresses, the new look is a far cry from boring. From sequined styles to scoop necks and dangerous front/back dips, this wardrobe staple can go from the boardroom to the party room in just one swoop.
Accessories are key, and take the look to the next level. Those fashionistas not interested in a basic black dress can go for one with animal print on the sides, or ruching or glamorous sequins. Taking shape into account, sleek and chic work great for most figures – a little spanx always helps gear the body toward a flawless shape.
While others may compete with disco balls for shine and sequin overdose, savvy fashionistas can keep it stylishly simple with a little black dress this holiday season.
