The information that these fashion writers actually mean to give you is, “A classic dress, in a solid neutral colour will make getting party-ready much simpler.” So what does a classic, solid, neutral-coloured dress look like?
Classic: A classic style is simple. If there are any details they are streamlined. Classic styles are “safe”, and therefore also timeless.
Solid: “Solid” describes the colour. It just means that the dress is made up of one colour – no pattern, no colour change.
Neutral: Neutral colours are actually “non-colours” called shades – think black, white, and gray – which makes them easy to match with anything. Almost as easy to match, are colours like navy, brown, gold, and silver so they are often classified as neutral colours as well.
Next time you feel the need to get a LBD, know that you don’t have to buy into the myth! There are other dress options out there that are equally versatile, and fill all your holiday outfit needs!
