The One Black Dress You Need

When winter rolls around, it’s time to start layering your classic black dress. As you all know, my wardrobe is sustainable and one thing I hate to be is wasteful with one off pieces. I can’t remember the last time I bought a dress for ‘an occasion’ and didn’t wear it again. I guess your mind set changes with age towards spending and generally owning less things, especially when a mortgage and future career goals are at the forefront of your mind. Plus, I truly believe you only need one black dress. If it hugs in all the right places and is good quality you won’t need any other. It may take you time to find the perfect style, but your wardrobe will thank you for it.

Today’s dress is a strapless classic from Christopher Esber. The details on the buttons and stitching give a point of difference to any other LBD I have owned, and means you can keep accessories to a minimum. It’s also super cute layered. When planning how to originally style this dress, I considered wearing with a white button shirt to keep the look structured. Instead, I opted for this light knit which seemed the better option to keep the silhouette slim fitting. High heels were essential as the length is midi, which can sometimes make me look shorter than I am. The look is finished with statement earrings and nothing more. The dress speaks for itself.

I’d love to hear if you guys are opting for a sustainable wardrobe, and what you are doing to maintain it. Let me know!
