Bluefly Bargains: Little Black Dresses

Earlier this month I posted about the outrageous price of a certain Thomas Wylde sweater that I came across in Bluefly's blue sale. In my boredom and work-induced exhaustion I've been visiting Bluefly's blue sale pages more and perusing their sale items, sorting them by price, colour, clothing type, etc.

I've also noticed a lot of little black dresses in classic, simple designs that are flattering for most body types--all marked down drastically. LBDs are fantastic finds when you're shopping clearance sales because they're such solid investment pieces: trends may come and go, but an LBD is not going to be one of those clearance rack purchases you regret. In my experience, there are a couple of things to look for in an LBD that you'll wear for many special occasions to come:
  • The cut and drape of the fabric always flatter your figure and never make you feel fat.
  • You can comfortably wear a bra under the dress, or it has a built-in bra with adequate support.
  • The dress has universally flattering features such as sleeves (long or short), V-necks, cinched waists, and A-line skirts.
  • Strapless dresses are also very flattering if you have defined shoulders.
