Are you a fan of a little black dress? Actress Eva Longoria shows us why we should all have one in your wardrobe.

Attending the Vogue World party in Paris on Sunday (23 June), Eva was captured wearing a fitted black gown, complete with jewelled detailing around the neckline.

For her hair and makeup, Eva also styled her long brunette locks in a straight, sleek style and opted for golden eye makeup, teamed with a classic nude lip.

The Vogue Paris party was thrown to celebrate 100 years of fashion and sport, as well as the extraordinary city, which will be hosting the Olympics and Paralympics this summer.

While the all-white trend has been taking over the red carpets recently, black is also a versatile colour that many of us tend to steer away from at this time of year.

However, if styled correctly and teamed with the right accessories, a black outfit can be an effortlessly chic option to wear during the summer.

A black maxi dress is a staple in our holiday capsule wardrobe, and can easily take you from the beach to dinner, with a simple swap of shoes.

For the perfect beach outfit, team your black maxi dress (soon to be your go-to beach coverup) with slip-on black sandals and a raffia style beach bag.

For dinner and drinks, differently style your maxi dress with your favourite wedges or bold accessories.

Why not try a pop of red or a touch of leopard print to add a fresh and fun take on the classic hue this holiday season.

To help you find the perfect black dress, here are our picks from your favourite retailers, including John Lewis, Boden and more:

Black should always have a place in your summer wardrobe.
