Window Shopping: LBD

Every girl needs a few little black dresses hanging in her closet. A little black dress never goes out of style and is appropriate for almost any occasion: date night, cocktail party, girls night out, meet the parents, sorority event, the list goes on and on. I love to keep my accessories simple and classic when I’m wearing an LBD, a swipe of red lipstick and some simple stud earrings and I’m good to go. But it can also be a great canvas for some more adventurous accessories; a bright colored bag or a pair of large statement earrings instantly elevate the classic black dress. With the holidays fast approaching, a little black dress is perfect for this time of year. On a colder night its easy to wear black tights and booties and stay warm and stylish. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite LBDs that are in stores right now. Kate Spade always has an excellent selection of black dresses, and the detail on the jacquard one below is absolutely gorgeous. I don’t usually associate Lilly Pulitzer with black dresses, but I can’t get over how gorgeous their lace dress is, they’re stepping up their fall and winter dress game. I wish that I had somewhere to wear the Vince Camuto illusion stripe gown, I love the edgy twist on a classic silhouette. You just can’t go wrong with a little black dress.
