Black Dress 101

The LBD. Little. Black. Dress.  It's daunting.  But also fabulous.  This is one of the most valuable weapons in your wardrobe.  It's your go-to pull for a dinner date, dance, or special event.  Treat it like royalty.

When buying a black dress think about what purpose you want it to serve.

Is it a statement piece? In which case go with a dress with a unique detail like a bow or one sleeve.
Is it a little rocker? Try an exposed zipper and an asymmetrical hem line.
Is it classic? Go with a capped or wider sleeve and simple lines.
Is it feminine? Go with an open back and a scalloped hem.
It is something to make him wish he never left? Deep v neck and no apologies.

So try to remember what kind of message you want to give off with this dress.  It should be the ultimate-you piece.
