For some reason, most people consider the little black dress as “basic”. Perhaps that’s because it is timeless and classic and always appropriate. However, it is most certainly not basic.
I am always the girl wearing a black dress to a wedding – no matter how many times I’m told it isn’t appropriate. I’m sorry but I think it’s chic and fabulous. Not only is it slimming, but it draws all the attention to my shoes and accessories – which are the best part! The best part though is that you can reimagine it several times over, unlike a bold patterned dress which is a one and done.
So regardless of what your mother says, a black dress is always appropriate. Day and night, casual and formal, weddings and soirées – there is never an occasion for which a black dress isn’t perfect.
