When in Doubt, Wear a Little Black Dress

One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress. – Karl Lagerfeld


Words of the wise, when in doubt, wear a little black dress! If you follow @kelseykaplanfashion on Insta, then you know by now that when it comes to outfits I am a planner! There is nothing worse than being rushed into wearing something you do not feel your best in. As a member of the San Francisco Junior League, as a class, we are hosting a March Madness Tip Off Party fundraiser, March 10th, at the Brixton. Although basketball paraphernalia is encouraged, I do not own any and let’s get real, I am a fashion blogger by trade! So, a little black dress it is and it might just be an all-time favorite.





Current Clothing is home to fabulous LBD’s. Last fall I fell in love with this one, and today I fell in love all over again with this one! There are a couple of things to consider when shopping for a LBD and this one fit the bill. The first being the silhouette. Shop the shape according to the occasion. If you’re going to a bachelorette party slip into a bodycon, a piano concert, go for a skater dress. I consider this one a perfect fit because it is suitable no matter the occasion!





The second factor to consider is the length. Again, your bffs last fling before her ring, a mini seems appropriate, while a longer length seems natural for an afternoon piano performance. I absolutely LOVE the midi length on this LBD because it’s modest enough to wear for a networking event yet spicy enough for a dinner date. Midis can be a hard fit on a petite frame so look for one with a front slit, or mesh material to avoid your legs from being “cut off” at an unflattering place.





When the dress is nearly perfect, accessorizing is easy. I embellished the look with a dainty bracelet, rhinestone earrings, and strappy sandals. Shop this dress at Current Clothing SF (text 415-980-4772 to order) or shop a few of my favorite styles below. Consider this a formal invitation to the March Madness Tip-Off Party for an evening of fun for a cause. Purchase tickets and learn more here.

    […] You all know by now that I love a versatile piece. The Fancy a Fringe black sequin clutch from lulus sure is one of ’em. This envelope clutch emits boho vibes with a twist. Featuring woven black and brown fabric embellished in sequins, the tassel trim is the icing on the cake. Wishing I had had this for yesterday’s little black dress! […]

    Love this dress! You look amazing! Do you think LBD are good for any occasion – even a spring wedding? I’m debating going for a LBD or black jumpsuit or a more spring, flouncy off-the-shoulder dress. Suggestions?

      I sure do Lauren, you can never go wrong with a little black dress, and I think the same rule applies to a little black jumpsuit. This is especially true for an evening wedding. Let me know what you decide! 🙂
