ELLE: Joe Zee Talks Little Black Dresses

When it comes to dresses, our loyalty lies with the LBD. And ELLE Creative Director (and our main fashion squeeze) Joe Zee agrees.

“If everything came down to owning only one piece of clothing, I would place my bets on the Little Black Dress. The LBD, for me, is the ultimate classic. It can span versatility from Audrey Hepburn to Courtney Love, classic elegance to punk rock. It looks equally chic with tights and boots as it does with a sexy pump or strappy sandals. But most of all, it says so much by saying very little. It’s the one item that will work in every situation, every occasion. Not sure what to wear? The LBD is your solution every single time.”

Check out our interview with Joe Zee for his tips on making these multitasking LBDs work in every occasion.

P.S. Inside tip for Joe Zee groupies: It’s DVR time. Season Two of Joe Zee’s All on the Line premiers this Friday, November 25 at 9:30 on the Sundance Channel. We think it goes nicely with a giant turkey sandwich.

The Essential Little Black Dress: Curated by ELLE’s Joe Zee Boutique opens today, Tuesday, November 29, 2011 11AM ET.
