1970s Anne Klein Wool Knit LBD

 

 

 

How to achieve a LBD look that is alluring yet demure - provocative yet tasteful? A mid-weight wool and cashmere knit - baby.  It clings, it hugs, it provokes, but it also very handily camouflages all those bumps and bulges, and paired with Hanes Alive pantyhose, you may get away without a body slimmer. We think men love the suggestion of what lies beneath more than they love actually seeing what lies beneath. This dress from Anne Klein gives them what they want.  Like most of Klein's pieces, it looks fabulous on a real woman's body.  The shoulder is lightly padded and slightly extended - all the better to balance out those hips.  Long sleeved, so no worries about arm tone. And the cut is simple and relatively straight, so it's going to hug the body, but you won't look like a sausage in it. Invisible zippered closure in back. It's a timeless classic style, and we think that's what a Little Black Dress should be. Excellent condition.  Unstretched measurements are bust 34", waist 32", hips 36", shoulder 16", sleeve 23", length 42".  $145
