Why The Black Dress Is An Essential Item In Every Woman's Wardrobe:
Every woman needs a basic black dress in her wardrobe. Armed with a basic black dress, a woman can then build dozens of different looks on top of it by adding other complimentary items of clothing and accessories. First up however the most important thing is finding the right dress that will look fabulous according to her body shape, that will not only feel super comfortable, but make her look and feel a million dollars.
For the basic black dress as a core ingredient in your wardrobe choose a good length dress not too short or not too long. If short mini dresses or long flowing black dresses are your preference that is fine, you can have as many of these styles as you desire but add them on top of your basic black dress. Your little black dress as described above, needs to be a smart, flattering and within a reasonable length to work for you at its peak.
For Smaller Frames Important Points Are:
For very small frames that lack curves avoid tight dresses and go for flowing styles, pleated fabrics instead. You need to create that illusion of curves. Use padding if you have to.
For smaller chests strapless designs can be very flattering, especially a corset style bodice with under-wiring to enhance a small bust.
Try a lower wider waist to create the illusion of a longer torso.
Go for a shorter hem-line to create illusion of a taller body.
For Larger Frames Important Points Are:
Find your best asset whether it be legs, bust, shoulders and accentuate that feature
Don't assume you have to wear a baggy design to cover up there are many great cuts for the larger woman.
On the other side of the scale forget tight clinging styles.
Really high belt lines above the natural waist-line are great for disguising bulging tummys.
Avoid tight underwear.
How To Dress Up Your Little Black Dress:
Add a denim jacket in a contrasting shade with mid heels.
Add a bolero with three quarter or long sleeves.
Add a white casual shirt over the top with rolled up sleeves and tied below waist.
Use chokers, scarves, beads that compliment your dress.
Add a black classic suit jacket for a classic tailored look.
Add a sequin jacket for nightwear with a diamante choker.
Wear a super stylish trench coat with knee high boots for cooler weather.
Again use sparkling. gold, silver chains, pearls to add that sexy night-time magic.
Wear glamorous stockings and make use of high fashion clutch bags.

Little Black Dresses Worn By The Famous:
In 1961, Audrey starred in the unforgettable 'Breakfast At Tiffany's', where she is greatly remembered for wearing the classic black sheath dress, designed by Hubert de Givenchy with those famous black sun- glasses, creating fashion trends world-wide. Her dresses were simple in cut and design but Audrey made them look a million dollars.
Lady Gaga is renown for her extreme fashion sense with her outlandish, provocative, sparse clothing. Here she flaunts her curves in a teeny little black dress, obviously not every-one's cup of tea. Not exactly a fashion trend we all could get away with unless we happen to look like Lady Gaga and be a million dollar super-star.
Elizabeth Hurley created quite a stir when she wore this black dress in 1994, to the premiere of 'Four Weddings And A Funeral'. It was in fact a top Versace designer dress held together with safety pins while left nothing to the imagination. The fashion critics loved it and gave it a huge thumbs up. Elizabeth Hurley has certainly used the power of the little black dress to her advantage.
Sarah Jessica Parker , Kristen Davis, Kim Cattrall and Cynthia Nixon pose for 'Sex And The City' in four ultra sexy black evening dresses. I have seen many promotional pictures the four have appeared in, and may I say it is not the first time they have used the power of the little black dress to flaunt their wonderful sex appeal across the world.
