I believe that a closet should contain multiple LBDs (aka Little Black Dresses). I mean, things like shape and silhouette make a difference when in comes to creating a look and I have yet to find a single LBD that can suit all my needs.
This season marked a major LBD comeback and our favorite closet staple now comes in a variety of styles- the micro mini, the backless, the plunging neck, the long sleeved, the cut-out, the leather, the lace. While this style staple was once synonymous with simplicity and considered the perfect foundation for statement-accessories, the new LBDs do all the talking and don’t require additional flourishes.
A not-so-basic LBD puts a definate end to the ubiquitous closet-full-of-clothes-and-nothing-to-wear predicament and can serve as your fool-proof go-to time and time again.
Check out my top picks after the jump!
Kova & T Drea Dress, $353. The long sleeve mini-dress is the hottest silhouette this season. Pile on the accessories or wear it alone, mega-watt sex appeal is guaranteed either way.
American Retro Tuxedo Dress, $242. Now this is how to go androgyny-chic.
Maison Martin Margiela Zip Dress, $443. An exposed zipper adds an undeniable cool-factor.
Caroline Hedaya Lace Tiered Tie Back Dress, $495. So sweet but with a naughty sensibility, I love it!
Alexander Wang Cutout Dress, $650. Be not afraid of the cut-out, it’s actually super flattering, especially when the dress draws in at the waist like this one.
Bobi Modal Jersey Tunic, $52. I live for loose tunic dresses- the possibilities are endless.
Joie Maybelle Tank Dress, $418. You can’t go wrong with this slinky, sequined slip-it-on-and-you’re-done number.
Silence & Noise Mix Fabric Sweetheart Dress, $58. So fiercely sexy.
MinkPink “Bead It” Dress, $83. The cascading ruffles render this sweet and sexy lbd ultra-flattering for all.
LaROK Left Bank Dress, $298. Pair this fuss-free frock with killer pumps for a night out and with leggings and a coxy knit for a funky daytime look.
