Switch to Navy, The New Black
We know you'll never give up your Little Black Dresses, but navy is a fresh alternative and complements a wider range of skin tones. Choose fabrics with a bit of shine to keep the look more ballroom than business.

Beauty Note
Trade your ebony liner and mascara for dark blue. "It's softer and livelier than black," says New York City makeup artist Kristofer Buckle. "Navy also makes the whites of your eyes look whiter."
