LBD

Designer Coco Chanel popularized the Little Black Dress over 80 years ago and it's legacy is still going strong.

Maggy London chiffon halter dress @ Dillard's; Wet Seal bow front tube dress; Pinstripe pencil dress from Arden B (on sale!)

Delia's Victoria dress and Barney's (sale) inverted V-coat dress

Here are some tips for looking your best in your Little Black Dress:

Petite ladies look best in sheath and empire waist dresses but make sure that the dress doesn't overpower your small frame. Trying to look bigger by buying a sack looking dress just makes you look like you need a sandwich (or a protein shake.).

Okay, for my curvy ladies (me included) we should look for fabrics that drape over your curves. Now let's define drape: 100% Spandex = no, 100% Lycra = no, any fabric that shows off all lumps and bumps = no. And if you insist on wearing this, then it's time for your friends to take charge of the situation. "Friends don't let friends show lumps." Look for A-line and wrap dresses to show off your assests.

My ladies with full busts (lucky!) should look for v-neck styles because it draws attention to your face and lengthens your neckline. (Just make sure that the bust is not too tight, no stuffed sausages, please.)
