Fashion
The black dress is probably the most iconic piece of clothing in fashion history, in large part, thanks to Coco Chanel. Whether you’re channeling Audrey Hepburn chic in an LBD or glamming it up in an evening gown, it’s the best go-to when you’re not sure what to wear. Stock your closet with essentials that can take you from desk to dinner, a couple for special occasions, and at least one casual black dress you can easily throw on for weekend wear. The beauty of a little black dress, aside from being super flattering, is that it’s a foundation you can build on. You can opt to keep your look minimalist or you can add statement jewelry, a pop of colorful heels or accessorize with a beautiful scarf. Find the perfect black dress on Polyvore.

How can I dress down an LBD for daytime?


As long as we’re not talking about a fancy frock, consider your black dress as the foundation to build your look on. A sporty varsity jacket is cute with a minimalist slip dress and sneakers, while a long and fitted jersey number exudes carefree boho style when worn with a floral kimono cardigan, lace-up boots and sunnies. When you head to the office, wear your black dress with a polished blazer or ladylike cardigan. Complete the look with pretty flats and tote. This is a great way to do a quick change between office and happy hour.

Can I wear black to a wedding?


Long gone are the days when it was taboo to wear a black dress to a wedding. Black dresses are elegant for semi-formal and black-tie weddings, and also a sure bet for an invite requesting cocktail attire. Skip black for a day wedding with a lunch reception. Another case where black may be too heavy-handed is a Spring wedding, especially if you can tell that the color palette will be softer based on the invitation.

How should I accessorize a simple black dress?


Don’t overcompensate for not-so-basic black by piling on a bunch of accessories. Go for a clean and sophisticated look by adding jewelry—either focus on one major statement piece or layer more delicate pieces together. Infuse more personality into your look with your choice of footwear, like a bright pair of high heels for a fun pop of color. Finish your look with a chic clutch to carry all your on-the-go essentials.
