The Forever Classic: the LBD

Would you believe me if I told you this is my first LBD (little black dress) ever?! I know, I honestly can’t believe it myself. Though I love fashion and learning more about style and trends, I’ve never owned the fashion classic: the LBD. Today, I’m sharing this adorable LBD I picked up at the Lincoln Park Banana Republic Factory two weeks ago during an event I hosted. It’s great for all year round, but especially summer because of it’s “cold-shoulder” details and ruffle sleeves. Keep reading to check out how I styled it and shop more LBDs I’m currently lusting over.

From casual to cocktail, the LBD can truly do it all.  Now that I finally have a LBD, I’m dreaming up all of the ways I can style it. For a casual brunch, I can pair it with lace-up sandals and a jean jacket or for a more formal event, I can wear it with timeless pumps and a blazer. The possibilities are truly endless and for that reason, I’m completely sold on the LBD.

I’ve always tried to buy more versatile pieces instead of trendy ones that go out of style more quickly. Though this one has some trendier aspects like the cold shoulder and ruffles, the silhouette and color are both so traditional that the aforementioned additions don’t take away from it whatever. I kept it simple with a necklace, but if you wanted to, you could add a lot of personality to a LBD with a bright necklace, statement earrings, or colorful heels.

If you’re looking for a LBD of your own, you can shop some similar styles and other favorites of mine in the sliding bar down below. Love maxi dresses? This one is gorgeous. Prefer something more casual? Take a peek at this one. What about sexy? See this option. There’s a LBD for everyone! It’s just a matter of finding one that’s your style and perhaps within your budget too.

Do you have a LBD dress of your own (or several)? Where’d you get them? Let me know in the comments below and have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
