What is it about a little black dress? It’s a piece of clothing you reach for again and again, and somehow always makes you feel good. If black is the absence of color, it certainly is NOT lacking for attention. How a color that effectively hides or hugs, depending on the cut and fabric , accentuates our figures at the same time is sort of mind boggling, but precisely why we return to the LBD all the time.
With the holidays coming up and the nights starting earlier, black dresses are perfect for parties. A blank slate, you can style them whatever way you want. Glitter eyeshadow? Absolutely. The perfect red lipstick? Also works. Maybe you have a certain pair of shoes or a colorful bag. Maybe the magic of the little black dress is that at the end of the day, it’s merely showing off the person in it. It’s not fighting with you for attention. It lets you shine.
Nothing “little” about these looks for our grown up selves. Everyone needs at least one, under a LBJ (Little Black Jacket) or simply, elegantly quietly on its’ own merit. This simple black dress, with spectacular sleeves is the height of chic-dom, and the others whether in silk faille or crepe or yummy velvet fill the bill on this Black Friday or any day at all.
