|The Little Black Stretchy Dress, Styled for a dressy dinner or a wedding.|
I am NOT one to come up with a big list of rules for what to wear--I think anything can be a wardrobe stable as long as you feel fabulous in it, BUT I do make an exception for the little black dress....and for Spoonies, a Little Black STRETCHY Dress is a real lifesaver. An ideal simple black dress can take you to a dressy dinner, a funeral, a court appearance, even a job interview, with just a careful change of accessories.
A dress in a soft, stretchy fabric, that doesn't bind at the waist or anywhere else is a must-have for every Spoonie. It's like a nightgown-comfy piece you can wear anywhere and look totally chic doing it, and the ways to style it are ENDLESS and go waaaaaay past dressing-up events like the four listed above. I'll be featuring the Little Black Dress and ways to style it as a regular weekly item on the blog, so stay tuned.
You want a dress in a simple cut and a dense enough knit fabric that it won't pill or cling after a few washings, and it should be a NON-POLYESTER fabric. Polyester has come a long way, and microfiber knits are heavenly soft, but and the end of the day, it's still made of plastic. For a Spoonie, the ziploc-bag effect can be more than a little unpleasant--with chronic rashes, random sweating and chills from medications or hormones, chafing,...well, you get the idea. Stick to fabrics that breathe.
