In Praise of The Little Black Dress

In every girl’s top 10 must-have items in her wardrobe, the little black dress is in the top of top ! Why is such a basic piece a must?

Above all, it is its versatility.  The design suits any event through the entire day. You just need to style it accordingly.  At work?  Throw a blazer over your little black dress, wear booties and a tote bag. After-work drinks?  Leave your tote behind for a small clutch, pick-up red lipstick, swap the blazer for a perfecto leather jacket.  Clubbing?  Take off your stocking, go for stilettos, loosen your tied-up hair.  One piece, many vibes.

The little black dress is also feminine.  Skirts and dresses are (so far) “for women only” (okay, let’s not bring up the Scottish kilt).

I am wearing a model from Carven x La Redoute collection. Everything about the dress is right: the length, cut, waistline, cleavage, material, and texture. (By the way, it is still available online). Here, I am showing you different look takes on different personalities. In the first setting, I let the femininity of the little black dress stand out on its own.   In the second, I transform the character with a leather jackets and black shades.  Isn’t the transformation amazing?  As they say, it’s all in the details…
