Meet the Black Gown: Your Formal Secret Weapon
We’re all familiar with the
Little Black Dress. Supposedly invented by
Chanel, this uber-
staple has been rounding out women’s closets for nearly a century, and we each have one that we swear by. However, we’re here to talk about the LBD’s fancier and more aspirational cousin — the black gown or evening dress. Just as much a wardrobe workhorse as its “little” sister, the best black evening gown will blend seamlessly into any event, from your
prom to a
wedding to a black-tie work event, with batting a proverbial eyelash. With strategic accessorizing and smart
footwear choices, you can morph your LBG (Long Black Gown) into almost any look.
