Women of all ages know that a little black dress is a must for every season. In today’s video, international fashion consultant Melanie Payge shows Margaret Manning how to use one simple black dress to achieve a number of fashionable looks perfect for women over 60. Enjoy the show!


Optimizing Versatility in Every Season

It’s astonishing how many looks we can get out of a simple black dress! This foundational piece can be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion. It’s important to find a dress that is comfortable and meets your individual needs whether it’s long or short, straight or flowy, sexy or conservative.

A sleeveless black dress can be worn in any season by adding jackets, shawls, or wraps during cooler weather. It’s also important to note that a black shirt/skirt combo or a black pant suit can achieve the same stunning looks and versatility that a dress can. What matters is that you feel comfortable and confident in your ensemble.

Show Me the Shoes!

It’s no wonder that so many women love to collect shoes! Trading a pair of sandals for a pair of strappy heels can take a dress from being casual to being worthy of a night out on the town. In this video, Melanie shows us a number of looks that can be achieved simply by changing shoes.

Aiming for Elegance

It’s all in the details. An embroidered jacket with gold detail, a diamond necklace, or a rhinestone studded pair of heels can take a little black dress from simple to stunning. Even the most elegant of events leaves a bit of wiggle room for you to show your own personal style. Have fun. Be creative. Be you.
