casual. little. black. dress.

#WhenAtTheMet  |  Madewell "abroad dress in stripe-inset" (similar)
It goes without saying that we all have at least one LBD tucked away in the back of our closets, if not more.  While on vacay in NYC, I stumbled upon the cutest little black dress at Madewell (surprise, surprise!).  Though I didn't necessarily need another black dress, after trying it on, my mind was made up.

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!
