Akin to opening a bottle of red or landing on the perfect playlist, there’s nothing like a great dress to get you in the mood. Our tip? Bypass the exhaustive possibilities of choosing the right color, and stick with black. Whether it’s in the form of rich velvet or complemented by shimmery lace, this universally flattering hue will serve as the perfect base.
Sure, a little black dress is nice, but sometimes you need to up the ante by adding thoughtful accessories that will transform any look into something spectacular. Whether that be a lace cape *begging* to make a dramatic entrance or a pair of oversized shades to bat your lashes beneath, you truly can’t go wrong. Tell your story with sartorial sidekicks that are sure to pack a punch.
