There is always something comforting about classic garments: those classic wardrobe pieces that have been around for many years, like a simple black dress. They may never really be in fashion, but it is equally true that they are never really out of fashion either.
In short, a black sheath dress (with all the variations you prefer) can be really useful and is a great garment to keep in your closet.
And when it comes to dressing with little effort, especially for work, it’s really a great key piece that lends itself to many combinations.
And speaking of combinations, I can only recommend you to read this older post about how to wear a LBD: it is an inexhaustible source of ideas!
I always like to play down classic garments like a black sheath dress a little bit using some edgy accessories.
That’s why, instead of a more classic bag, such as my Chanel Jumbo Bag or my Boy Bag by Chanel, today I chose to wear this old Prada bag with fringes, practically a museum piece since it’s really, really old, but always fun for the movement it creates in my outfits.
As for the black dress itself, mine is from Mango and is already a few years old, but the choice is really huge! And since it is not generally a garment that is discarded after a few seasons, it is also worth looking at the slightly higher quality brands.
Given the classic nature of the black sheath dress, you can find beautiful and high quality ones HERE. Intrend now ships internationally and you can find great garments from Max Mara, Marella, Sportmax, Max & Co. at much lower prices (they simply don’t have the original tag on it).
It’s one of the best hidden secrets of many elegant Italian women who buy their best high quality pieces there at a fraction of their original price.

And, if you’re aiming for a really cute, trendy and even low-cost model, I absolutely recommend you to take a look HERE!
WHAT I’M WEARING WITH MY LITTLE BLACK DRESS:
Sandals, Michael Kors, similar HERE
Earrings, Dublos, gifted, similar HERE
Beige sandals for a look suitable for the day.
In addition, a pair of beige sandals always makes your legs look longer!
Oversized, eye-catching earrings and fringed bag for a slightly edgy touch,
which is often lacking in classic garments
Always good to know! 😉
