Cynthia Steffe: Not-so-basic Black
Recently, I've avoided all things black when shopping because it's too easy a rut to fall into, especially as a New Yorker. The long dark days also scream for brighter garb that psychologically ease the mind and please the eye. This Cynthia Steffe black dress, however, reminds one why everyone loves black. The sheer striped black overlay on top of a white slip creates texture, and the simple shape is friendly to many body types. $395 at Neiman Marcus.
