Last week I wrote about the many ways you can style a basic “Little Black Dress.” After several requests for more LBD recommendations, I’ve put together a quick post with some of my current favorites. These dresses, in addition to the Everlane one featured last week, span a range of shapes, fabrics, formalities, price ranges and fit a variety of body types.
Obviously, the simpler the dress, the more versatile it is, the more ways you can wear it. I’ve included a few basics designs but limiting my choices to only these seemed a bit boring. There are too many amazing LBDs out there to not include the ones that REALLY excite me. (Click the thumbnail for larger views with details linked below.)
- Adrianna Papell Mikado Midi Dress
- Nookie Dolly Off-the-Shoulder Midi Dress
- Vince Open Shoulder Dress
- Old Navy Sleeveless Sheath Dress
- Nicole Miller Ruby Lace Dress
- Boden Kaia Ottoman Dress
- BCBG Catier Faux Leather Trim Dress
- BCBG Layla Asymmetric Leather Dress
When choosing fitted styles, never underestimate the power of undergarments (and I don’t just mean Spanx here ladies). The right shapewear (if that’s your thing) in addition to the right bra and panties can truly transform your body (and I can assure you that a future post will be entirely dedicated to this topic).
