There's no piece of clothing more infamous, seductive and deadly than the little black dress. Also called a cocktail dress (because it would be worn during cocktail hours in the evening) or an evening dress, the black dress is often cut short at knee-length or higher and fit with spaghetti straps, strapless, or sleeveless. The women's black dress is certainly a woman's best friend and classic stand-by, able to sustain spills of coffee or wine without leaving telltale signs. Additionally, black is a very slimming colour and pairs well with almost everything. Every woman should have at least one black dress in her closet for a casual chic occasion.
At first glance, all black dresses appear similar. This couldn't be farther from the truth, however. Depending on your body type and unique features, selecting the right short black dress is crucial. If you have a "pear" shaped figure, that is, larger hips and thighs, then a wide neckline will accentuate your shoulders, thus making your hips look slimmer. If you have a dainty bustline, then an age-old trick is (instead of a miracle push-up bra) to have two pockets on the chest area or a turtle neck with keyhole cut, showing off a bit of skin but drawing the eye away from the flat surface. For lean or muscular legs, a short black dress is a must - with either knee-high boots or heels, depending on how much leg you want to show (here's difference between "work party" and "party"). Long black dresses are also in order for chillier days or to cover unshapely legs.
