I know. This is the summer of colour. Of red and tangerine and bright green and neon pink. Of colour block, floral prints and romantic ruffles.
However, I challenge you to tell me that your favourite, main-stay, always-goes-with-you, always-to-be-relied-on dress is not black. The one that can make you feel good even when you don’t, that is the quickest to change into as all you need is a simple, chic up-do, your favourite jewels and heels. When I travel I try to take colour with me, particularly when I’m going somewhere hot, but my favourite little black dresses always seem to slip in too. They are just too gorgeously easy.
This summer there are some excellent little black wonders around, as sexy, glamorous, demure or simple as you could possibly wish for, and all under £210. I thought of making the boundary under £100 but frankly, these are all such good value and totally worth investing in that I was sure you wouldn’t mind a little extra. Consider the designer darlings for around (and well over) £1000 available at most of the online designer boutiques and I’m sure you’ll agree with me.
Most of these are sleeveless as befits summer, but a shrug or wrap or fine knit cardi will do the business if you want to cover up more. Simple……………..
