The Perfect Little Black Dress

the perfect little black dress

The perfect little black dress is a closet staple.  That dress that you pull out of your closet and makes you look like a million bucks is well worth an investment.  A properly fitting dress sounds easier said than done though.  Especially for this six foot tall girl.

Picking the right little black dress :

  • Interest/detail: pick a little black dress that has something fun going on.  A great fabric, interesting details, something that stands out.
  • Fit: Make sure the dress fits perfectly.  If it doesn’t, have it altered.  This is going to be a closet staple and something you will own for some time.  The waist placement should be at your natural waistline.  If there are straps, they should be the proper length.  Body length should be altered if necessary.
  • Quality: Choose a dress that is well made and isn’t going to fall apart in a season.  Skip the fast fashion and go for something worth the investment.

I found this amazing Cushnie Et Ochs dress thanks to Rent The Runway.  I was so absolutely in love with it that I purchased it from TheOutnet.  The eyelet fabric, the fitted bodice, and plunging neckline checked all the right boxes.
