The 39-year-old actress looks absolutely beautiful in this modest, full-sleeved black frock. Meanwhile, the flirty hemline and crochet lace detail around the bust help to bring whimsy to an otherwise conservative look. As we prepare for dropping temperatures, look for higher collars and more coverage, and leave the sleeveless LBDs of early autumn behind. For a finishing touch, Chastain’s classic black leather satchel and matching pumps transform her little black dress into the ultimate elegant outfit.
