Black has long been a favourite for lingerie, work wear and party wear. A classic staple, it flatters most figures and is suitable for all occasions. Black conveys elegance and power.
This Autumn/Winter the little black dress returns in a number of guises. The catwalk was full of black dresses from Chanel to Sophia Kokosalaki. Oscar de la Renta mixed sequins and tulle to create frivolous cocktail dresses, whilst Zac Posen displayed a collection of skin tight, body-conscious designs.
For a touch of luxury, choose sensuous fabrics like satin, velvet and leather. Accessorise with gold, silver, or bright colours such as red or blue.
