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.
