Your little black dress can be right for any occasion.  Make the most of your look by adding pearls.

Yet another party has made its way onto your calendar and as you stare blankly into your closet, the irritating thought plagues you once again: You need another special event dress to wear?  A black dress and pearls will certainly work. For more ideas, fashion stylist Judy Gordon offers the following tips for looking your very best at the next party.


Fabric and Fit

Selecting the right fabric and fit is important in making sure you look your best. If your outfit is made out of a body-hugging fabric, make sure you wear the right undergarment, especially if you are full-figured.Body shapers, for instance, offer full-figured women slimming yet stylish intimates to complete any outfit, whether it's a clingy black dress or a lacy top. With shapers, you'll look slimmer instantly, as the bras eliminate bulges and gaping blouse fronts. They are available at department stores nationwide.  



 Make the perfect transition from work to nighttime party with a few simple accessories. Ditch the conservative flats for a fun pair of coloured heels. Replace your chandelier earrings for long, linear earrings. And leave the big bag at the office; a fancy clutch adds just the right amount of sizzle.

Your little black dress is right for any occasion. Pearls and fancy pattern pantyhose can transform your black dress from plain to all-dressed-up in less than a minute!  You can also make the most of it by adding a faux fur capelet or stole with a satin ribbon tie.  

When you are choosing a special event dress consider that it should be something you are comfortable wearing and can be worn again. When you like and feel good with what you wear – then you are wearing your best.  Accessorize with pearls in all colours, lengths and styles. Pearls can dress any dress and their classy look will show your fashion savvy.
