There is nothing more essential to every woman’s wardrobe than a little black dress (or “LBD” in fashion parlance), and this particular one has become my summer go-to. The loose fit and lightweight silk fabric that breathes makes it perfect for those really hot days and nights when everyone else’s clothes are sticking uncomfortably to their bodies.

I styled it here for an evening look, with these sexy sandals and a couple of statement accessories. But truth be told, on my recent trip to Paris when the temperatures rose to above 90 degrees (we had to shoot this at 8 pm because it was so hot all day – it was still over 80 degrees!), I walked around in the dress with my favorite flat sandals or white sneakers and a giant tote bag (similar here) carrying – what else – my camera.
