I can’t count how many times I have been invited to an event or function and had no idea what to wear. It’s hard to dress for something when you’re not sure if the event/function is casual or formal or somewhere in between. Luckily for us women, we have a secret weapon called “the little black dress.” With the perfect shoe and right accessories, this dress can be the answer to any fashion dilemma.
When shopping for a LBD, I like to find some simple and casual with a touch of elegance, such as the Tulip Hem Knit Dress.
Usually when shopping for outfits, I look for something with lots of details because generally it gives the piece personality. However when it comes to black dresses, I look for the opposite. I like this dress because of its simplicity which makes it easy to dress both up and down. While overall the dress may seem fairly plain, I think the slight ruffle at the bottom adds just the right amount of drama, allowing it to stand out from an unoriginal tank dress.
What really makes this dress great is how can be worn straight from the office to a formal fundraiser and then for a nightcap at a local bar, all with a quick swap of accessories!
Headed to a causal affair? Keep the accessories simple with stud earrings, a basic bracelet and flats. Need something a little more formal? Jack-up the dress with some bolder accessories such as a statement necklace and stilettos.
