The Little Black Dress...A Holiday Essential
Dressing up for the Holidays can be tricky for most women. Especially since everyone wants to feel and look good as if it were effortless. We all tend to have other women as our fashion inspiration, especially when we dress up. For example, celebrities, how do they do it? Or that girlfriend who always seems perfectly put together from head to toe. Well, the truth is, celebrities have magical fairies called “stylists” who spend days or weeks plotting and planning one single outfit. And that girlfriend, more than likely, she too has been plotting all week or even a month before an event.
But who has the time or energy to spend during the Holidays obsessing over what to wear for multiple Holiday events? My advice, don’t sweat it and keep it simple! I will bring you into that secret world of the stylists mind. First and foremost there is no excuse not to have a little black dress (LBD) in your closet. Our Scout Cocktail Dress and The Stevie Shift Dress are the perfect LBD’s for different looks.
The Scout is a great foundation for any woman needing a little glamour without going overboard. Super versatile for layering under any of our elegant ponchos, dressy coats or one of our sophisticated sweaters, the Scout Cocktail dress can look very different with just simple change ups. A heeled sandal for a deliberate feminine look, a pump to make it a little more serious (for a work party), short or tall suede boots for the slightly edgier look. For one garment I just gave you at least four ways to wear it. That is something one must keep in mind when shopping for that LBD.
The Stevie Shift Dress is the perfect LBD for the woman with a free spirited style this delicate lace and crochet bohemian style shift dress is the ideal vintage classic style. Any poncho, the Tabitha trench, or our Inez cape coat is the right layering piece to accommodate the slight bell in the sleeve. With a little more of a relaxed cut, the Stevie would complement any body type. With its free spirited vibe the Stevie would also look fantastic with flat dressy sandals or boots insuring that your night will be seamless and spent comfortably.
Either little black dress or both would complement any closet. These foundation pieces are essential in every woman’s life. Happy Holidays and happy shopping!
