There are a few things that define the perfect black dress in my book. First and foremost it has to make you feel amazing. A simple black dress is like a secret weapon in a girl’s wardrobe, a no-brainer when it comes to that important date or a moment that requires solidity. It’s amazing how something so simple can boost your overall confidence. The fit is next on my list. Every figure is different but there’s a right silhouette out there for every shape and size. Find the one that flatters your greatest features and run with it. And lastly, show a teensy bit of skin. A sleek, black number is the perfect stage for showing a little more than usual.
