Ah, so you’re looking for a staple dress; simple yet unique, perfect for a night out on the town, maybe a low-key black tie-esque event. You're very likely looking for the famous LBD. Little black dresses are a necessity in any closet because of their versatility, function, and effortless classy aesthetic. They function as a day-to-night piece, and are offered in a variety of different styles ranging from a bodycon silhouette and delicate sweetheart neckline to a sleeveless drop waist garment.

Whatever your heart desires, LBDs have you covered for any occasion. They have their own fashion term because of how important they are in any closet. Little black dresses will never fall out of the trend cycle because of how timeless they are.

Reformation Oaklyn Linen Dress

The piece from Reformation has a fitted bodice coupled with an A-line skirt to show off all of your favorite curves. I’d argue this is the perfect day-to-night dress because the length can be dressed down in a cute, delicate manner or dressed up for a more sensual look. The baby short sleeves show off the arms and the square neck opens up the chest area to give the perfect mixture of chic and modesty.

Black Halo Barbados Crepe Dress

This sleek, cascaded ruffle dress is simply chic and can be found at Saks. The spaghetti straps are thin and delicate; this coupled with its sweetheart neckline means the garment is perfect for a wedding (as the guest), a chid rooftop bar during a summer in the city, or even a cocktail party. Wear it alone or with a light ivory shawl to brighten up the sultry look, with a pair of strappy kitten heels or your favorite ballet flats. The midi length is perfect for transferring this look for day to night; just switch up some of the accessories to dress it up or down.

Mango Linen Strap Dress

If there’s one thing about us, it's that we adore linen and high necklines. For the girlies who want to keep the eyes up here, this dress is a perfect closet staple. The dress has a mini fit, which complements the more modest-looking neckline, providing a perfect balance between sultry and elegant. Show off your legs and your shoulders in this piece and make sure to wear an up-do to show off the strappy details.

Loft Strapless Midi Dress

This knit strapless midi is perfect if you want to show off your décolletage. And yes, although an #LBD is normally seen to be quite short, the midi length is so in. The side slit opens up the sleek, bodycon fit without flaunting too much. The open neck paired with slit offers the perfect amount of skin, the bottom hem hitting right at mid-calf. We picture this look pairing phenomenally well with a sheer shrug for an office party, or leave it alone if you’re waiting for your hot date for an evening in a jazz club bar. This dress definitely offers less movement than some of the others on our list, but the knit fabric will give you just the right amount of extra room to get comfortable.

Pacsun Princess Polly Eco Black Nellie Mini Dress

Pacsun has it figured out with this dress; you pretty much wear it when you want to feel effortless and buttery smooth. It's got a plunging neckline which is flattering for all shapes and sizes. This dress definitely giving night at a chic bar. Wear the piece with a set of faux pearls or keep it simple with no accessory. The dress speaks for itself.

Lulu’s My Philosophy Black Wrap Dress

There is nothing more timeless than a black wrap dress. Tighten the waist to your liking if you want a snatched look, or loosen it up for less of an A-line fit. Wrap dresses typically have a minimal slit up the thigh, allowing its wearers to show a just enough leg while maintaining the garment’s intentionality and elegance. The tie sleeves complement the tie of the dress’s wrap mechanism, providing a unique flair to a classic style.
