There is nothing more essential to every woman’s wardrobe than a little black dress (or “LBD” in fashion parlance), and this particular one has become my summer go-to. The loose fit and lightweight silk fabric that breathes makes it perfect for those really hot days and nights when everyone else’s clothes are sticking uncomfortably to their bodies. The silhouette, with it’s low cut top and spaghetti straps, and strategically placed, gam-revealing slits keep the dress looking edgy rather than dowdy. I styled it here for an evening look, with these sexy sandals and a couple of statement accessories. But truth be told, on my recent trip to Paris when the temperatures rose to above 90 degrees (we had to shoot this at 8 pm because it was so hot all day – it was still over 80 degrees!), I walked around in the dress with my favorite flat sandals or white sneakers and a giant tote bag (similar here) carrying – what else – my camera.

Bon weekend everyone!
