The Little Black Dress

I've never owned the perfect little black dress that every girl is told she needs to have in her wardrobe, until I spotted this pretty Sheer Striped Skater Dress (£38) in Topshop last week and purchased it without a second thought. I made a small promise to myself that I would invest in one this year as it's an essential wardrobe staple, and I was looking for a dress that was simple but elegant, so I was thrilled when I came across this one as it ticked all my boxes.

This is surprisingly comfortable for an evening dress; I have several in my wardrobe that I just love, but after a few hours of wear I can't wait to get them off and into my pyjamas! My favourite thing about this dress is the sheer stripe panels, they really stood out to me as I think they add a touch of quirkiness to the simple yet classic style of the dress. In terms of the fit and shape, it's so flattering and I can't imagine it not suiting anyone, it will look beautiful on any girl regardless of her size or body shape. The length is perfect too, it's short but not too short and looks so effortlessly chic. 

I wore this dress for the first time last weekend on a date night with my boyfriend. I teamed it with sheer black tights and leopard print boots (the weather is still so horrible and cold in Scotland) but come spring and summer I'll ditch the tights and wear it with cute heels or flats. I can't imagine this dress ever looking out of style and I know I will get so much wear out of it.

What do you think of this? Do you have a little black dress in your wardrobe?
