It has always been said that every woman should have a little black dress in her closet. This is the go to dress for any evening event where you are not sure what you should wear. It is appropriate for all different kinds of occasions, and can eaily be thrown on, but you will look like a million dollars
So how do you find the right little black dress to keep in your closet? It is important to shop for your body type. Since they come in all different shapes and sizes, just like women come in all different shapes and sizes, you can always find just the right one. Make sure you are shopping for your body type when you are looking for your dress.
If you have a fuller lower half, look for a dress that is fitted on the top, but then just skims loosely over your lower half. If you have a smaller frame, look for a dress that is slimmer and longer to help make you look longer. If you are on the smaller side, stay away from “cute” to help keep you from looking like a little girl.
For those who have broader shoulders, you can camouflage this with asymmetrical necklines. Try a dress with just one strap, and dresses that have the same amount of volume from top to bottom. It is best to stay away from dresses that are very form fitting on the top and wider at the bottom, since this will accentuate your top half.
No matter what your body type is, you can always find the perfect little black dress for any occasion.
