This black dress from Giorgio Armani’s Pre-fall 2016 Collection is so subtly sexy, yet versatile, it just may be our new favorite LBD!  The eminently wearable tunic shape and shirttail hem are enough to make this a “go-to” dress for work and shopping. However,  this black dress gets so special in the detailing that we think it works for virtually any occasion.

The gorgeous silk fabric, deep v-neckline and hint of thigh you get with the shirttail hem make this dress oh-so-sexy, yet it remains professional enough for work and lunching with your gal pals.  The sleek, simple silhouette is made extra special with exquisitely tailored details: deep cuffs accent the sleeves, the shoulders are perfectly defined with a yoke,  and the standup collar ties with a beautiful silk ribbon that then falls into that deep-v neckline.

Imagine our gorgeous Francesca with a briefcase and you’ve got an executive look for day. Our ensemble above is perfect for a power lunch downtown and translates well to evening. We show the dress with a great pair of strappy black suede sandals and the iconic Saint Laurent Monogram Clutch in black.  A vintage crystal and gold dome ring completes this look.  Another evening option would be to throw on big diamond hoops, pump up the volume in that ponytail and reach for a sparkly clutch.

The possibilities  for this subtly sexy black dress in your wardrobe arsenal are limitless!! Please contact us for shopping details on this look.
