We’re approaching party season and our fear of sleeveless dresses hasn’t miraculously disappeared. In fact, with dropping temperatures and wine and cheese plates popping up by every fireplace, it’s bigger than ever. Goodbye whimsical floral patterns! Goodbye swaths of pastels! The season of little black dresses has returned, and I couldn’t be more excited.
What’s so magical about the little black dress is that they work for anything. Little black dresses are the great equalizer of fashion. Everyone looks good in them, and more importantly, everyone can afford one. Brands like Mango and Zara have just as many seriously chic options as Nordstrom or Net-A-Porter. The perfect LBD can (and should!) be styled up, down, and sideways. Have a new pair of beautiful shoes that demand showing off? Just got all your jewelry cleaned and you want to blind someone with your bling? Feeling kind of bleh and need to a confidence boost? There’s a LBD for every one of those occasions.
And for those of you who are looking for a some big drama with sequins and jewel tones – don’t worry. Holiday dressing is right around the corner. We’ll have statement skirts and cocktail dresses galore. This is the time for Little Black Dresses to shine. Shop the edit below.
