little black dress for day and night
That little black dress is an absolute must have in every woman’s wardrobe. Whether it is a classic cut with a clean design or a trendier piece like this one HERE, you can never go wrong with a well chosen LBD. The same dress can be worn for work paired with a blazer or a cardigan for casual Fridays as well as for corporate events or any party really. All you need to do is swap out the structured blazer with a more delicate and feminine top like a cashmere cardigan, a bolero or a stole. Add your favorite jewelry, red lipstick and you’ll own the room. (Talk about parties: here’s a post I wrote last year regarding tips on office holiday parties and drinking).
I have been a big fan of classic designed dresses that are comfortable for all day wear, are easy to maintain and have something different added to them. This may be some added lace, embroidery or a little twist in the design. Dresses with all of the above are rather hard to find, let alone finding something within a budget. I gathered a few for you below if you are currently looking for a decent quality dress that’s affordable.
