It seems sexy black dresses are the order of the day, with Heidi Klum shimmying into a leather strapped tank dress with very blonde hair.
Thing is, you can't go wrong with a LBD. They will ALWAYS look good and every woman should have at least one as their back-up plan in their wardrobe.
Even in the forthcoming season of colour (for which I cannot wait) it pays to buy a summer frock in black. Because there will be a time when you will just be drawn to black and there's nothing sexier than lightly tanned skin (or better yet, faux tanned skin) in a black dress. It's a guaranteed winner.
