A little black dress with a lot of style

A little black dress is one of those must-have items for a special occasion or a spur-of-the-moment event. But when you’re not dressed to the nines, a casual LBD can serve just as many purposes. From a laid-back work look to an easy option for running errands, the daytime LBD is also a staple wardrobe item.

This Alembika dress from EJ’s Boutique in Leawood is a punched-up version of a casual LBD, with a mix of patterns that makes it interesting without overwhelming the eye. The dress is made of a knit-jersey fabric, a soft material with enough drape to make it flattering without clinging to problem areas.

And at $169, it’s a piece that can be worn again and again, without the worry that it will go out of style.
