  • Wardrobe basic: Little black dress

    September 13th, 2013Alanna NelsonOur Fashion Choice

    Henry Ford may have said, “You can have any color as long as it’s black,” but it was Coco Chanel who transformed the black dress from a widow’s uniform to a wardrobe basic. Here are 3 beautiful black cocktail dresses to refresh your wardrobe.

    Sleeveless lbd with tulip skirt

    This sleeveless lbd (little black dress) creates a slim line and flows beautifully.  The deep V neck, gold belt and tulip skirt hit current fashion trends, but this semi formal dress won’t look dated next season.

    And if black isn’t your thing, no problem! This  dress is also available in a rainbow of colors.

    Black lace dress with v neck  and back

    For an elegant lace black dress, try this striking empire waist beauty. The deep v mirrors on both back and front with a scalloped edge. There’s something classic and current to the slim cut of this lbd. I love the way the lace wraps diagonally down the body, which also sets this lbd apart from the rest.

    Open back lace dress

    For a completely different interpretation, try a lace lbd with a deep v back. This sleeveless, portrait neck charmer relies on a contrasting lining to show off the black lace.  Choose emerald green (there’s that trending color again!), silver or gold lining.

    So many beautiful little black dresses!  You can hardly wait for your next dance or party to wear one.

    If you’re in Paris this month (lucky you!), be sure to catch the fantastic black dress exhibit at the Mona Bismarck American Center for Art and Culture.
