You can always trust in black dresses to get it right. For every occasion, black dresses are there to be styled to perfection, whether it's for a special event, a hot date, or just to impress in a meeting at work.
When it comes to black dresses the little black dress is a holy grail staple in the wardrobes of women everywhere. A go-to hero for all sorts of occasions from dinners dates to cocktail parties and everything in between, the LBD flatters most and is easy to accessorise and dress up or down. Team a short black bodycon dress with nude court shoes and pearls for a classically stylish look that works for the office, but add caged stiletto heels and swap the pearls for a choker necklace or some statement sparkle, for instant night out glamour.
Black is one of the most forgiving and flattering colours, but you can still further enhance your look. Look out for black dresses with sculpting panelling that fit and frames your shape to boost curves and hold you in. Spandex and compact knit fabrications have the pulling power to hold you in, but you can boost this with women's shapewear underwear. Plunge necks and bardot shoulders are the key dress shapes of the moment, and their gorgeous cut is often enough alone to make a statement - simply pair with classic heels and a metallic clutch bag and let the dress do the hard work.
