For a time there, quite a while in fact, the long black dress was shunned. Especially one with sleeves. There were so many more colourful, sparkly, fun options abound in the fashion world that if one chose black, well, it seemed a little unadventurous. Boring even.
But lately, there has been a return to the classic, with a few fab-uslising twists along the way. It's chic, see? There's no denying it.
Jessica Biel's has that amazing wing detail and her yellow clutch adds flavour.
Cara Delevigne's has ribbed, sheer sleeves and plunging neckline.
I haven't seen the back of Olivia Palermo's but I'm assuming it has a deep cut out, otherwise I would be a tad disappointed. The detail on the neckline and the wrist is enough to pull me in though.
