I just don’t think you can have too many little black dresses. Depending on the style, they are perfect for date night, girl’s night out, weddings, work, happy hour, a trip to the theater, I could go on for a while.  For a fun office look, I love my little black shift dress.  I purchased this one a few years ago from Asos, but I linked a couple similar items above.  I could probably wear this style of dress to work every day and be happy.  Since the dress is sleeveless, it transitions seasons easily.  I would wear this outfit in spring, summer, and early fall.  When the weather cools off, this dress pairs perfectly with a cardigan and boots.  I love this dress paired with a long cardigan that reaches almost the same length of the dress.  I love that the dress has no real shape, but the material is thick so it still holds a structure.  Shift dresses are some of the most comfortable wear to work dresses, but the structure really helps this one keep that professional feel.  When you have a black dress, your accessory options are endless!  It is no lie that I love carrying colorful purses, and they all mix perfectly with a black dress.  The jewelry options are also pretty endless too depending on your neckline.  This one has a slight turtleneck collar and works perfect with long pendant necklaces and wide bib necklaces.  If there was one dress you must have in your closet, a little black shift dress should definitely be up for consideration!!

PS – Two of my favorite gold jewelry items are currently on sale!!  I marked them above as on sale!!  Happy Shopping and Happy Wednesday!  We are halfway to the weekend!
