Fashion Friday, Jul 26: A “Basic” You Don’t Need: the LBD

Yep, I said it. The essential little black dress isn’t essential at all! 

The premise of the little black dress is/was a piece of clothing that is versatile. It could carry you from an interview or the office to date night to lunch with the girls to a shopping spree. The fact is, that item of clothing does not need to be a dress or black. 

Not everyone is a dress person, and on a windy day a dress may not be the smartest idea. A romper, coordinated set, or jumpsuit can work just as well! My black romper can work for a house party with my black high top converse or a statement necklace for a date/night out. If there’s a breeze, I don’t need to worry about flashing anyone!

Part of the appeal of the little black dress is that black has the reputation of a slimming color. Be prepared to be stunned: black being slimming is a myth. The color of the garment is far less important than the fit. A black trash bag won’t look a tenth as good as a pale of white dress in a shape which flatters your frame. One of my favorite dresses ever is my knee length white lace dress. I can pair it with a blazer for a presentation, a heel and statement earrings for a date, or a denim jacket and flats or converse for a casual day. The picture above I styled by beloved dress with turquoise heels and a big hat, great for a summer day!

As always, send me inspiration, gift my with a like, or give me some feedback!
