If there’s one thing every woman should have in her closet, it’s no doubt a little black dress. In my opinion, there are no limits to the LBD possibilities. Maybe yours is long? short? tight? lace? silk? who knows. The point is, you should have at least one. Yet if you’re anything like me, you probably have fifteen. So today I wanted to discuss ten different types of LBD’s, because let’s be honest, you really should have a little black dress for every occasion…
1) The Lacey LBD
Because who doesn’t need a little lace in their life?
2) The Date Night LBD
Short? Tight? Backless? This one’s got date night written all over it.
3) The “I have no idea what to wear, so I guess I’ll wear this” LBD
For those times you have no idea what to wear… This one is flowy so you don’t feel self-consious (always a good choice), and has a lace back which can either be shown or hidden with a blazer for a more professional look. It’s an easy one to dress up or dress down (aka why it should be your go-to in times of need).
4) The Summer LBD
This LBD is perfect for the summer. It’s short and open on the sides which is basically a godsend during those hot summer days (not to mention you get to show off your bralettes and bikinis). Warning, this dress is probably not very appropriate for the other three seasons, but during the summer no one seems to care if you’re half clothed… so go for it.
5) The Basic LBD
This LBD can basically go for anything. Throw it on with a blazer for work, pair it with some heels for a dinner date, or throw on some tights and a sweater for Sunday brunch. It’s basically a clean slate, so do with it as you please. This particular one has a bow which can be worn in the front or back for endless possibilities.
6) The “I’m already over today” LBD
Would you be surprised if I told you this is the one I wear most often? It’s big, baggy, and soft. Aka it was made for me. This shapeless masterpiece is my go-to when I just can’t.
7) The Skater LBD
This is another easy one to just throw on. Pair it with some buns for a cute and effortless look.
8) The Maxi LBD
I’m going to be honest… when I have to attend a social gathering and I just can’t get myself to shower and shave my legs, this dress is a life-saver. You should really invest in one of these…
9) The Floral LBD
For when your inner flower child needs to shine…
10) The Leather LBD
Ah yes, I saved the best for last. This little number can take my confidence from a 3 to a 10 in just one zip. I only bring this baby out for special occasions, but when I do, you better believe my sassy side will be roaring.
I wish I could say these were the only black dresses in my closet… unfortunately I have about ten more. But if you’re not on my level of LBD obsession yet, start slow and prioritize. Pretty soon you’ll have your own glorious collection.
P.S. You don’t need to over accessorize a little black dress. Just some red lips and killer shoes are all you really need.
