The little black dress is the “it” item for the party season this year. If you don’t already have one in your wardrobe, now of all seasons (when black is big) is the time to purchase one.
Little black dresses have been a statement for decades, but this season several flirty new options are joining the conventional stylings.
- The bubble dress is especially flattering for the fuller-hipped figure. Go all the way and wear this dress with opaque tights for a svelte retro ‘80’s look.
- The kimono dress is exotic to the extreme and looks best in soft drapey fabrics. It’s a good style for pretty pear shaped bodies and can’t be beat as far as comfort is concerned.
- The balloon sleeve dress is in keeping with this season’s voluminous styles, and is more subtle than the bubble dress. It’s a warmer option than the sleeveless alternatives and will look just as fabulous over pants or jeans as an elegant tunic.
- The lace dress never fails to give off a vintage vibe. Finish off the look with a fake fur shrug or capelet and watch those heads turn.
Once you’ve got your little black dress – make it your own. Add the accessories you need to capture your personality and mood for the occasion.
