How to pick perfect cocktail dress

There is an art to choosing a little black dress that is both elegant and timeless. Choose a look you like, select a flattering fit and cut, and grasp the importance of quality fabric and craftsmanship. It’s all about being comfortable with yourself.

Choose basic, clean lines and a cut and hemline that you know you’ll want to wear for years to get a timeless style.

Consider the fit and cut of the dress

The cut of a dress relates to its form, such as A-line, empire waist, or sheath. Stylists have long encouraged women to choose dresses that are best cut for their body type,  but we disagree—any garment that makes you feel brilliant is the ideal cut.

If you’re unsure about your exact dress size, we recommend that you order two sizes and keep the one that fits the best. If you’re between sizes, we suggest that you size up and have the dress tailored. It’s always easier to get something taken in than taken out.

Summary

Don’t pick the first outfit you see on the rack. The little black dress is a wardrobe staple that will outlast any fashion trend, and we believe it is worthwhile to invest in a high-quality item that will endure for years.

Even if you’re confined to your house owing to social-distancing rules, there’s nothing stopping you from wearing a tiny black dress when you need a vacation from sweats.
