I obviously have an obsession with little (or long) black dresses, given the name of this blog (hint, LBD). A black dress is classic and always chic. Nothing makes me feel more elegant than a little black dress, high heels and understated jewelry.
Personally, i’ve always been drawn to black dresses that have a subtle design detail, like a cut-out in an unexpected place, a low back or buttons/hardware. These details add a little something interesting to an otherwise blank canvas. Some of my go-to brands for black dresses are Enza Costa, Privacy Please, Norma Kamali, Reformation, and Express.
The dress I find myself reaching for the most in my closet is the strapless Norma Kamali dress below. I usually pull my hair back in a low bun, throw on some long earrings, add a smokey-eye with a nude lip and that’s it. It’s the easiest but one of the most eye-catching and dramatic looks you can wear. The best part is that the dress is $125, a reasonable price for the peace of mind of knowing you have something up your sleeves for any event that comes up on your calendar. I’ve rounded up my favorite dresses below so you can have an outfit ready to go at all times.
