Your prom night is this awaited event that you must be looking forward to for the past few months if not more. This means that you are on the search for the perfect prom dress and shoes and accessories to match of course. When looking at prom dresses, you may be overwhelmed by the huge selection of styles so why not let Ladies Outfitters help you narrow it down to the one color you cannot go wrong with; black. A classic black dress is the epitome of elegance and femininity. Black is slimming, graceful and the best part is that it matches everything! You may be thinking that a black dress will not get you noticed on that much anticipated night but on the contrary, classic black, especially the kinds of black dresses Ladies Outfitters carries will certainly get you noticed AND remembered. According to Michel Pastoureau in one of his academic works “Black: The History of Color” he explains what the color stood for, in short: authority, holiness, rebellion, wealth, and good. He also said that in the medieval era, black became the habit of courtiers and a hallmark of royal luxury. So you see, black is a universally beautiful and most coveted color. The classic black dress is no longer boring and will definitely allow you to shine the brightest you have ever shone on this very special night of yours. We do of course love to take inspiration from many a red carpet event so let’s see how black has worked so well on some of our favorite people in society and then let’s get you all suited up for your prom night in a gorgeous black dress.
