Embarrassingly, I have over 20 little black dresses, all in different lengths, cuts, embellishments, materials.
But there is a reason why I have so many, and why the little black dress lives forever in the world of women’s fashion. Versatility.
Being black, it goes with any hair or skin colour. Because of it’s very simplicity, it has an eternal sophistication, and it becomes the perfect foundation to build up with accessories – any accessories. The little black dress is fashion trend proof, which is a rare thing.
To be honest, when I’m feeling uninspired, unsure, or just don’t have time to think about what to wear, I grab my favourite-at-the-moment little black dress. It is my trustworthy friend :)
So I thought I’d show off a few little black dresses I have in my wardrobe.
I chose three dresses that can be bought online from Fashion Junkee – one of my favourite online shops that strikes a great balance in affordability and quality for dresses.
The first dress, is my favourite. An Off the Shoulder Mini Dress.
As the name suggests, you can wear it off-the-shoulder. Or as a boat neck, as pictured.
I’ve had it for 2 years. I’ve washed and worn it quite a number of times. And it’s still stretchy, slinky and in amazing condition. Excellent cost per wear!
Here on the left I’m wearing a One Shoulder Rouched Dress. It has lots of great features – the material has a lot of stretch, the rouching hides all kinds of bumps and lumps, it is fully lined, you can dress it up or down, you can wear it underneath something.
On the right, is a very simple and elegant Cap Sleeved Dress. It’s also fully lined, it is easy to dress up or down, and it just sits and falls so comfortably!
I admit that over twenty may be too many…and I am very interested in fashion…but shouldn’t every girl have at least two or three?
Long live the little black dress!
