The little black dress. So useful, versatile, and almost always appropriate attire for whatever… except the beach maybe. This one is perfect. A figure hugging v-neck with some gathering under the empire bustline, and wonderful sleeves — tight fitting but with a neat ruffle treatment at the top (very slenderizing for arms). Will flatter most figures and of course black looks good with any skin tone too. A great LBD in an organic cotton and bamboo blend. Joumana Black organic cotton blend dress, $99.
