Perhaps the most enduring image of one of Hollywood's iconic actresses is that of Audrey Hepburn in a black dress in the film Breakfast at Tiffany's. Long black dresses have been popular fashion choices for decades and they will definitely never go out of style.
Whether it's a red carpet appearance at an award ceremony or a cocktail party at a club, actresses have worn these long black numbers for almost every occasion. And why not? You can't go wrong with them, ever! Classic and always flattering the figure, these are a must have in every woman's wardrobe.
You don't have to be a large woman striving to look thin or a widow in mourning to pull off one of these long black dresses. The height of fashion and elegance, actresses, royals, businesswomen and in fact, any woman who wants to look beautiful must possess one such dress. Perfect for that one day when you feel 'fat' or when you don't want any blemish to show, the longer black dress is what you want. It'll make you look good, and feel good while deflecting the attention away from you and to its own gorgeous self! The choices- the styles, the patterns, the fabrics, the textures and the different lengths, are sure to drive you wild with joy.
Go chic and glamorous with an expensive dress and a suit jacket and sophisticated bag. Or throw on a crazy animal print jacket with matching pumps for a wild night. The most classic option ever is of course to go vintage with the long black dresses! Get a delicate lace and tulle sequined evening dress and pair it with an antique watch and some sparkling jewellery to feel like a star. Try a simple black gown with a sash and an embroidered Chinese silk bag to get an oriental look.
When it comes to dressing up with your long black dresses, the sky is literally the limit! Accessorize smartly and transform your looks instantly. The most adaptable of options, you can swing from looking like a glam icon in a
slick long gown with dramatic jewelry, to a woman in control with a smart wrap and clutch. The price ranges from a very reasonable gown under $ 25 to more than a grand and over! So, choose as per your budget but you can be sure to look absolutely fabulous in a beautiful long black gown. Cheryl Coleman
