DSquared² Natasha Long Dress: Little Black Dress of the Week

In our last little black dress installment, we kept things safe for work with flashes of color of the season coral/honeysuckle. When we saw this DSquared² maxi dress though, we couldn’t resist going a bit sexier. The sheer back, the sheer front! The little pockets for a hint of modesty, the long skirt and deep v-neck all give a serious does of 70s glam. With a dress like that, bright color would be a bit too much, but we love a bit of snakeskin on accessories and creams and soft neutrals to go for all out glamour. After all, this is a black dress that’s anything but basic, so the accompanying accessories shouldn’t be either.

Just as lovely, but a little less

Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Chiffon Back Jersey Dress $374 @Nordstrom

It’s not as va-va-va-voom as the DSquared² version, but this slightly less sheer, slightly more modest v-neck chiffon back Cynthia Vincent dress is also not as tricky to pull off wearability or wallet wise.

Underneath it all…

While clear bra straps can elicit a love/hate reaction, underneath either dress they’re a good way to get the support of a real bra without distracting from the design. And since the back isn’t totally exposed, the clear straps may actually be unnoticeable. If you need more support than a truly backless bra offers, try the Fashion Forms Clear Back U Plunge Bra $34.07 @Asos.
