Style Icon: The Little Black Dress

It’s about time we paid homage to a style we reach for repeatedly. A piece that gets it right, no matter where we wear it and serves to complement our every accessorizing whim. It’s the perfect cocktail number, our work wardrobe mainstay, a throw-on-and-go wonder that has permanent placement in our closet. Of course, we’re talking the LBD, and—this season? A number of takes are making waves.


The “It” Silhouette
Meet our all-time favorite silhouette: the long-sleeved mini dress. It’s practical, unexpected and sleek as all get-out. This season, the style looks best in black—and paired with trendy booties or a pair of platform pumps.

All in the Details
Want to go easy on the accessories? Pick a dress that’s special in itself: Most of the latest styles feature standout details—like sheer, lace panels; prim collars and leather piping.

A Dress for Comfort
The sweater dress is back with an altogether-new look: It’s light, versus chunky; curve-hugging and even sexy. With a horizontal, ribbed knit? It’s fall’s answer to the party-perfect bandage dress.
