We are already halfway through December and I betcha there are still some holiday party plans in your book. Whether it’s a work holiday party or your New Year’s outfit, I found the most classic black dress that’s both stylish and timeless!
Most people find this surprising but I actually don’t own many black dresses. I’m drawn to more colorful pieces, but this dress completely caught my eye. I love the midi length that’s very classy and the flutter sleeves add a feminine touch. The fit is also super flattering. It slightly cinches at your waist and the longer length creates an elongating effect. The brand that I’m wearing is Chelsea28 from Nordstrom and the dress is unfortunately already sold out. However, I found an almost identical classic black dress here! They’re so similar to each other that you can barely notice the difference. I would recommend sizing up, especially if you’re between sizes.
I wore this dress in November to one of the shows for Eco Fashion Week, which is the world’s largest sustainable fashion event. During this event, I learned that, on average, each North American wastes about 81 pounds of textiles per year (crazy, right?!). So the runway presented ten designers, each challenged with only 8.1 lbs of clothes, to reinvent and redesign those pieces into their own runway collection. It was definitely eye-opening and awesome to see how those designers got creative! Such a great reminder to always recycle, rewear and reuse!
With this classic black dress, I can easily rewear it to many different events and occassions over and over again. I last wore it to the runway show and I’m planning to wear it again to my boyfriend’s work holiday party. It would also be perfect for the holidays, work, weddings, and any type of cocktail event!
What do you think of recycling, rewearing, and reusing clothes? Do you have a classic black dress that you can wear again and again?
