A staple for every woman’s wardrobe, the Strapless Black Party Dress is a classic item, and can be re-invented every now and then for a different look, simply by accessorizing. It never goes out of style and is very versatile. Don’t be afraid to stock up on a few black dresses. They can last for many years, and every woman should have at least half a dozen black dresses of different lengths and styles – a strapless party dress, a spaghetti strapped long simple dress, a dress shirt, a top, a skirt………
A simple black dress can be very elegant and sexy at the same time. The key is in accessorizing. Try putting together a simple black top and a soft, flowing black skirt with a metallic gold or silver big band belt. This would readily add glamour to an otherwise basic set of top and skirt. I took my 60-year old mother on a Caribbean cruise. She had nothing to wear for her formal night, and we pulled this trick together with a gold belt we purchased on the cruise ship. Pearls go well with black dresses. A long strand of pearl with a single knot or a three-stranded pearl choker can give you the Jackie Onassis look. A simple strapless cocktail dress can be worn in the office by simply putting on a blazer or a cardigan. Remove the blazer, and you have a dress that is suitable for an evening event. Accessorize with some gold or glittery jewelry to add a festive touch. Fancy stockings or pumps can also add some drama to the dress.
It is surprising how simplicity and elegance can sometimes be inexpensive. With proper planning and a little forethought and some imagination, you can make your fashion budget stretch so much longer. Choose a strapless black party dress and
make yourself sexy.
