“One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress,” said Karl Lagerfeld, also known as the man behind Chanel, Uncle Karl, and, most importantly, Choupette’s dad.
Every woman needs a few pieces in her closet that make her feel beautiful and sexy, no matter how she’s really feeling. A couple of dresses that you always feel skinny in, even if you’re bloated or had too many pancakes that morning.
Most obviously, black is the go-to color.
Similarly, for most ladies, A-line and flared dresses do the trick as they cover up the problem areas that lie in the hips, butt, and thighs. Because, no matter how thin you are, this is likely your problem area.
The fashion gods must have been feeling benevolent this season, having blessed our fat days by making the black dress with a flared hem the frock of the season.
Sure, leather, moto, plaid, punk, tweed are all hot trends this fall. But, everywhere you look, the prim-and-proper, fit-and-flair black dress is omnipresent.
