Black dresses have many adjectives attached to them – the most frequent being “classic” and “timeless.” This caged sleeve shift dress is neither, and I kind of love that. The aforementioned timeless dresses certainly come in handy, but a LBD as a statement has its own charms. The architectural sleeves are a great foil to the unstructured dress.
Another oft-used adjective for little black dresses did apply, though – it was definitely versatile. I wore it with a structured blazer for work, without the statement earrings for lunch with my mom, and with the earrings and bold eyeliner for a night out.
