The Beauty of the Little Black Dress


After all of those combinations yesterday, it was enjoyable this morning to just throw on a little black dress. Some people may say that a simple black dress is too easy to be on a fashion blog, but I say that there is nothing wrong with sticking with what works! And, quite frankly, sometimes we need to be reminded that, while following trends is fun, and mixing prints and colors is interesting, and trying new styles is exciting, some things are perpetually chic.

 
I mean, isn't a little black dress the first thing that every stylist says you need in your closet? Right before great blue jeans or a white button down, or a black blazer? Some items just transcend trends and always look stylish. And we should spotlight these items from time to time, for winning a lifetime achievement award in fashion.
