share this:

It’s the one item in our closets we turn to again and again and again. For EVERY occasion. The. Little. Black. Dress. And for good reason. It’s the most versatile, the hardest-working, and the easiest to accessorize piece of clothing we own. Looking to add another one into your life or refresh the one you’ve been relying on for years? From a simple sheath to a daring romper, here are the five styles of little black dresses getting all our attention right now.

The T-Shirt LBD


We know there’s nothing more effortless than a T-shirt, so the second-best thing? A t-shirt dress! It’s a simple, elegant silhouette that’s best accessorized with slides and a swipe of red lipstick. it’s also perfect for slipping into your tote for an unexpected date night after work.

The Little Black Romper


Okay, it’s not technically a dress, but same idea. You can dare to go a bit shorter with this style than you would with a dress or a skirt, and it looks equally cute with heels or a pair of sneakers. Dress it up with statement jewelry or dress it down and turn it into shorts with a cool graphic sweatshirt. We love this style for its simplicity and no-fuss styling.

The Floral LBD


When you want to make a bolder statement but still keep it versatile, choose a black dress with a statement floral print. A-line dress styles are super flattering for practically any body shape! Top it with a jean jacket for casual weekend days or pair it with a blazer and ankle booties for a day at the office.

The Ruffled LBD


A little flirty, a lot of fun. Who says the little black dress has to be boring?! We love this fit and flare dress style paired with cowboy-style ankle boots. Bundle it up in winter with colored tights, a wool peacoat, and an oversized beanie. Do it for date night or grabbing cocktails with friends.

The LB Wrap Dress

This super flattering dress is from thredUP’s new Remade collection. It’s an iconic figure-skimming style that cinches at the waist for added definition. Just like the timeless DVF wrap dress but for a whole lot less and we made the wrap dress in everyone’s sizes. And what’s Remade? Remade is the first clothing line designed for the secondhand revolution. Every style comes with a Buyback Guarantee, for the purpose of extending its life and reducing its environmental impact. Buy it, wear it, sell it back to thredUP for 40% of the original price. Join the circular fashion economy, thrifters!
