The fit was impeccable and extremely flattering. (Major bonus: Twirl factor on fleek!) And it just so happened to be on sale... that obviously never hurts either! The deal breaker: Whereas a lot of LBDs err on the formal/evening attire side, this one took on a more effortlessly chic and daytime appropriate look. #Winning I ended up wearing my new dress to the Met, which I thought was fitting. I mean, if you're going to go the #allblackornothing route in NYC, then it might as well be for the Met museum and rooftop garden, right? I say yes — très chic, indeed.
So, while this isn't a groundbreaking post introducing some fashion-forward trend for the upcoming season, it is a simple reminder that wardrobe staples, including a versatile LBD, can be just as exciting + innovative in channeling your signature look. As for my favorite way to style a little black dress... I'd have to say, simple really does it for me. Granted, I will more than likely throw a statement necklace into the mix — but besides that, I'm good to go. :)
If you're on the hunt for a casual-chic LBD, I've rounded up some of my favorites below. Enjoy!
