I have a ton of little black dresses in my closet. I think it’s an essential. There are some staple pieces that are a must, and an LBD is one of them. From lace, satin, short, midi, it’s my go-to look for an evening out. I especially love when a cocktail dress has a surprise detail like this one from Tobi. The front is simple and unassuming. Turn around, and it’s a whole other story.
Not your average LBD
If you’re going out on a date, a little black dress with a cape is a nice touch especially if the dress is backless or has cut-outs. You know, so you can slip it off casually at the restaurant. If your dress is simple, look for cape or overcoat with texture. If the weather is warm, dress it up with a red shoe or clutch. You know me, less is more. It’s all about the little details or pops of color.
That’s the beauty of a little black dress. It’s classic and lends itself to a variety of looks.
