A Little Black Dress Is A Most In Every Woman Closet

It is not a fashion secret that every woman must have a little black dress in her closet. My mom uses to remind me this important tip. She always told me that it is a piece of cloth that you can use for any occasion and always look great. I knew she was right but is amazing the power of one single piece of cloth!. I mean, you never can go wrong with a little black dress. Over decades and generations is still firm and standing no matter what fashion trend is "in" at that moment. Surely your great grandma had one, your grandma too, and just ask your mother. Now, what about the reaction of your guy when he look at you in that little black dress? Isn't it a powerful fashion weapon? There are millions of reasons why every girl most have one as part of her wardrobe. Just name it!

The Right Little Black Dress For You

There is so many reasons why I love the little black dresses. Lets start talking about the body shape. The right short dress can improve your silhouette dramatically. The dark color help us show a slender figure. That is something great don't you think? It camouflage those areas we need to hide. Also there are different styles of little black dresses that match perfectly with every single type of body. It doesn't matter if you are short, tall, curvy, skinny, or plus, a little black dress is simply right for you. But there is some rules to follow of course. Is more logic than other thing. For example, if you are a plus size you know you are not going to look good in a dress too tight to your body. For this reason you should better choose loosed styles with high waist. Short girls should use their little dresses above the knees. This make the illusion of longer legs and taller figure. By the other hand, tall girls should opt for black little dresses down the knees so they won't look taller than they really are. In other words your body type will tell you what kind of little black dress is perfect for you.

Easy and Sophisticated

Honestly I wear jeans almost every day of the year. My wardrobe is casual, but I make sure to have at least one little black dress. It have saved me so many times. Is easy to wear, which is perfect when I'm late or for last moments plans. I am so amazed with the versatility of this piece of cloth. It is perfect for any occasion, because is a safe choice when you just don't know what to wear for that special occasion. The same you can wear a little black dress for work, a party, a meeting, the mall, the club, a date, even for a funeral and a thousand more occasions. The little black dresses are a fashion trend that never will be "out". They are easy, fancy, chic, sophisticated, and elegant. Our best ally.
