The (Not So) Little Black Dress

Fall is my great excuse to start wearing black again. As much as I love color in my home, it’s a different story with my clothing. Beige, gray, white and black. Lots of black. That’s about all the colors you can see in my wardrobe on any given day or season. Black dresses in particular are some of my favorites and I gathered a few different ways of styling them depending on their length, fit and style. Kendall Conrad is at the top of my list. I could wear black like this for days. Uniform.

Penelope Cruz looks ravishing in this off the shoulder dress. A great summer number that you can transition to Fall with a cashmere sweater or a trench coat. Or both, depending on your latitude.

As for the accessories, the fun thing about wearing black is that you can go both ways: exaggerate with statement pieces – a crazy necklace or funky earrings (just not both) or keep it simple with nice heels and no jewels. The choice is yours and the possibilities endless.
