What Makes the Little Black Dress Even Better?

Everyone knows of the famous little black dress and without a doubt it’s something that you need to have in your closet. If you happen to be someone that doesn’t own one, stop reading this and go get one! Right now! Or just scroll to the end of this post and shop a few of my favorites.

There are times that I add one more descriptive word to these already perfect three little words and this is one them, it’s lace. A little black lace dress. Or even better, a wear anywhere little black lace dress. I’m referring to a dress that will always work. A dress that is not too short, not too long, not too tight, not too loose, not too risque, and not too uptight, I’m referring to the perfect dress that will always be appropriate and not only fits your body like a glove but also your personality.

The black lace dress in this post it is for me. It’s classic yet contemporary in it’s shape, it’s minimal with a high neckline (my favorite kind) and it’s the perfect shape for me. It also suits my personality and my style. I have worn this dress various times in a variety of ways because a perfect little black dress can transform to fit the occasion. In this outfit, I wore it with a little more edge. I paired a black peplum leather jacket, jeweled headband, black floral heels and black sunglasses. I kept the entire color scheme dark, with the only hint of softness in the shoes that gives off the vibe of, I’m cool but also nice.

Find Your Perfect Little Black Lace Dress

Do you want to feel stylish, confident and comfortable? I do. I want to relive the moments when all is right in the world, or at least it is in my own little world. Like right after you just received the perfect haircut and blowout, the mood changing manicure or right after shopping. This is how I want you to feel all the time and it starts with dressing the part.

When searching for your dress keep these four things in mind: the style, shape, fabric, and length.

Find Your Little Black Dress:

  • Style – Do you want to give off the vibe of sexy, romantic, sophisticated, retro, edgy or minimal?
  • Shape – What dress will best fit your body shape? Are you pear shape, petite, apple shape, curvy, or plus size?
  • Fabric – When are you going to be wearing this dress most? Also, take into consideration where you live. If you live in California you would want to select a fabric that isn’t too thick and hot. On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you live in Minnesota you might want to pick a warmer fabric like wool. Of course you can buy something with a lace overlay, like the dress in this post.
  • Length – The length of the dress is key because you are, or should be, wearing this item to many occasions so you don’t want anything too short or anything too long. The length should be just right for your height. I suggest the hem ending a couple of inches above the knee.

Have you found your little black lace dress yet?

Stay Stylish,
