Tracy Reese Embellished Strapless Wool Dress, $400 at Eluxury
Although the cliche is true--"you can never go wrong with a little black dress"--I personally find it somewhat predicable. I tend to avoid black dresses unless they have a unique texture or flattering silhouette. Blue dresses, however, offer a slight twist on the standard LBD, and this one by Tracy Reese works for day (with a gray jacket or cardigan) or night (with a clutch and glittery heels). The silver sequins along the bustline add shape and interest to a well-cut dress--perfect for that holiday party you're attending next month.
