Bewitching Black Holiday Party Dresses

I love the idea of the perfect little black dress that one item in your closet guaranteed to take you through whatever life throws at you with a simple change of shoes and accessories, just like magic.

But, just like anything else, little black dresses can fade, wear, and lose their charm, leaving you looking a little out of date and feeling slightly frumpy.

With holiday party season just around the corner, now is the time to take a long look at your standby little black dress and decide if you need an upgrade. Here are some new, sexy choices to bewitch and bedazzle.

1.  Cast Your Spell with A Sexy Off the Shoulder

Off-the-shoulder styles are elegant; they’re a great way to look alluring without going overboard and showing too much skin, and if you’re a pear-shaped woman,  they help balance wider hips and thighs.

2. Play Masculine Off Feminine

A dress that plays up the tension between a masculine and feminine vibe is always worth a second look. Here, the classic tuxedo, a menswear staple, fitted and draped for a look that is all girl. Add a pair of slingback pumps, and you’re ready for a night out. This would look stunning on a gal with a pear or hourglass figure.
