One Fashion Item Every Woman Needs – The Little Black Cocktail Dress!

Be it a gathering with loved ones or high profile dinners in corporate circle, everyone tries to put the best in looking the best. And this hard work promises greater results if it involves a wonderful little black cocktail dress. It is one fashion item that every woman needs from time to time. It makes a woman look so classic, beautiful and confident, that half of the battle involved in looking the best is actually won then and there. Its history of becoming famous goes back to the time of the 1960s, thanks to Audrey Hepburn from ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

The little black cocktail dress is a must- have in a woman’s wardrobe. It is a wardrobe essential for both young and older women. It is so experiment- friendly, that you can try any accessory or other add- ons and it will always end up looking fabulous.

You can start by using a belt of bright colors like red, golden or even dark green. You can even hold a bright and sparkling clutch or a bold necklace of a completely contrast color to complement your look. Spice it up with a pair of bright colored shoes most preferably high heels. A black cocktail dress and a pair of stilettos look just perfect. But if you want your cocktail dress to have all the attention then you can use just a pair of black shoes and minimal make  up.

A black cocktail dress looks marvelous with diamonds, pearls, gold and silver jewellery but chokers and pearls are always a classic choice. Team it up with a matching bracelet and you are ready to go.

It is always important to keep in mind about the choice of fabric. Some fabrics are comfortable to be worn at any time of the day but some tend to be disastrous. Some fabrics are even perfect to give you a slimming look. For example dresses with linings within. So keep in mind about the cuts and curves and hemlines that would help in giving you the desired look. You can even team them up with bright colored jackets. Jackets help in giving an extremely proper and sophisticated look to the body.

It is extremely important to know whether you will be able to wear it on various occasions. Have more than one black cocktail dress to wear on different occasions. Wrap style cocktail dresses are a hit among women of various shapes. Petite and ultra- slim women must wear dresses that stop right at the knee or just at the ankles. Similarly plus size women must wear dresses that complement or enhance their assets.

At less formal events, wearing pantyhose is acceptable but not at formal occasions. Since every accessory is equally important when worn with the little black cocktail dress, wearing appropriate pantyhose is also important. Avoid contrast colors like white, red or even blue. Try black or nude and anything with glitter or shimmer is a complete no- no.

So what are you waiting for? Get yourself that little black dress and be prepared to take everyone’s breath away.
