Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials: The Little Black Dress

November 10, 2010

What is more of a staple than the little black dress? Simple, elegant, versatile… a piece that is more than a “must”, it is an iconic and classy “go-to” item. My friends make fun of me, because I own more than a couple of LBDs, but to be honest it is the one thing that is completely worth investing in. A little black dress is great for work, party, cocktail, dinner with friends, day, night, evening… basically think of an event and you can wear the coveted LBD. If you don’t know what to wear… well you know the answer.

It is all about accessorizing, so you can make it own and stand out. Necklaces, scarves, brooches, belts, tights…the little black dress is an empty canvas that can be manipulated to fit any style and occasion. But indeed the dress itself is so very important too. The main feature is timelessness. So it should be clean and classic; great fabric and perfect cut are essential too!

Here are some choices…
