Finding the Perfect Little Black Dress

As a bright color lover, black is rarely a top color choice for me. But, a little black dress is a closet staple. The perfect little black dress (LBD), one that suits your style sensibilities, fits flatteringly, and works for a range of style occasions, can be so useful. Today’s featured dress is that perfect LBD for me. Read on to find out why I think so and where to find it.

I found today’s featured dress in Loft. It retails for $89.50, but I bought it at 50% off during a storewide promotion. There’s always a special promotion at Loft. The dress fits true-to-size. For reference, I’m wearing a regular size 4.

I was particularly drawn to this style because of its modern-minamilist vibe. It’s a classic, figure-flattering sheath, a simple style you could wear for many years. But, the dress also has a mockneck with keyhole that takes it to new style heights. That subtle detail is both sexy and sophisticated.

The dress is sleeveless, which was key to my decision to purchase it as well. Having no sleeves makes it easy to add layers when needed, which in turn makes it even more versatile.

This dress can work for work and after work. Actually, if an LBD is warranted, this dress will certainly suit the occasion.
