NEW YEAR, NEW WARDROBE – BLACK SHIFT DRESS

The New Year is a good time to go through your wardrobe and check what you have and what you need. I have just completed this not very pleasant task and I was shocked with the obscene amount of jeans I own! I also have quite a few maxi and midi dresses however what is definitely missing from my wardrobe are short dresses. A nice short dress has the magical power of truly transforming your confidence. I would like to get a dress that is versatile and can be accessorised in many different ways. I would also like it to be not too trend-led so that I can wear it for many seasons to come. What I have in mind is a nice black shift dress – Audrey Hepburn and Jacqueline Kennedy’s iconic piece of wardrobe – with a modern twist.

A black shift dress is classy, flattering and versatile. Having one of those in my wardrobe would prevent the usual panic when I get invited to fashion events at short notice! The styling possibilities are endless so I would definitely wear it on numerous occasions and I could create a different look every time.

I have done some digging in the wonderful world of dresses and I have created a list of top 10 potential winners, three of which are from Warehouse who offer a great variety of black shift dresses. As I love them all, I need your help with choosing one! Which black shift dress is your favourite?
