Little Black Dress is obviously a staple and I have more than 1 in my wardrobe already but there are so many options available that I decided to get one with a bit more sparkle to compliment my other 2 very simple options.
This Dorothy Perkins dress ticks all the boxes for me:
- Short but not too skimpy. You can show a little leg but still look classy
- Sparkly but not over the top. The sequins add interest without overwhelming and paired with a black blazer, it’s actually quite simple. Still, on its’ own and with right accessories, it’s a show stopper.
- Underlined. Never underestimate such details, this dress feels comfortable and it looks right when you move, sit, etc. It won’t be visible to everyone what underwear you’re wearing and you won’t have to worry about whether you can have the dessert…
- The design of the sequins is very clever, it widens the hips but the dress is black around the (usually tricky) waist area. A big tick!
