I know many of us love the tried and tested LBD and I agree that it is useful to have one in our wardrobes. I have had a Nicole Farhi chiffon version that I have had for many years.
Black is an easy option it goes with everything and is a good staple if you are travelling. All you need to do is add a stunning piece of jewellery a pair of black pumps and you are ready to go. A shawl or pashmina can add some colour near the face if black is not your most flattering colour.
If you still want to wear black I have selected a few options to the dress, most of the styles come in other colours should you want to add a little pazaz to the holiday season.
