the LBD

Every fashionista knows the one absolute requirement for their closet, no matter what the season. From chiffon to jersey; long-sleeved to strapless, the Little Black Dress is a wardrobe workhorse. The true LBD is a dress with a classic silhouette, solid black fabric and a reasonable length between mini and maxi - versatility is the name of the game. If you have a date coming up, do you have the perfect dress? What about a girls night out? Rehearsal dinner? Sorority function? Graduation?

You'll be amazed at what these sophisticated dresses can become. Think of your LBD as a blank canvas; just add accessories and you can mold it into exactly what you need.

The Jersey LBD, by Velvet


The beauty of this Little Black Dress is the comfort (which of course comes standard from Velvet), and how easy it is to dress up or down! All you need is heels and a bright cardigan and you're ready for nice night out - add flats, stacked bangles and a hobo bag and you're ready for a casual day of shopping or just running errands! What can you do with your Velvet LBD?

The Ruffled LBD, by Max & Cleo


Now we have a dress that combines two timeless elements we love: a ruffled collar and a wrap closure. This beautifully constructed Little Black Dress has style to spare! We love this LBD for its statement design that makes it super easy to wear. Ready for multiple occasions, just throw it on with any shoe & bag combo and you're ready to go. No accessories required for this beauty!

The Shirt Dress LBD, by Max & Cleo


Every LBD collection should include a crisp cotton shirt dress. Perfect for casual warm weather-wear, they add a tailored look while maintaining their feminine grace. This collared dress by Max & Cleo features an empire waist and double-breasted button closure that make it an easy choice for a day in the office to dinner with friends.

The Edgy LBD, by Interlud


A layer of tulle peeks out from cascading pick-ups of black chiffon... a softly-shaped sweetheart neckline tops a rouched bodice completed by a gleaming silver waist tie. What's not to love about this contemporary adaptation of the classic LBD? With subtle elements of modern edge, this is a great choice if you march to the beat of your own drum. The belt is a great way to style this dress for a night out with the gals, but highly removable for more conservative events.

The Extra Elegant LBD, by T.A.G.

Floaty chiffon, a carefully shaped surplice neckline, a rouched waist, and a softly-falling skirt hitting right below the knee. Absolutely gorgeous and oh-so timeless, this LBD is a must-have for dressy events. Flattering and sophisticated, you'll be complemented over and over again in this classic piece.
