Normally I am not one drawn to black, but when it comes to the perfect little black dress even I succumb to the sexy, elegant, classic allure of black.
The little black dress never goes out of fashion.
I often search for a LBD with a tiny bit of the unexpected, something unique that’ll make the dress stand out.
6 Little Black Dress Suggestions
Lace & Bows
The design on the lace overlay of this dress drew me in. Did you notice the great peek-a-boo hemline? So unusual and unique.
Fit & Flare Little Black Dress
A vintage inspired little black dress with rhinestone buttons and a tulle petticoat attached. Very Audrey Hepburn.
Embellished Neckline & Lace Little Black Dress
This is such a pretty piece. Again it is the little details in the feather-like embellished neckline with sequins and frayed ribbon that drew me in.
Authentic Vintage 1950’s Velvet Floral Embroidered Little Black Dress
If this dress fit me you know I would not be selling it. This is a real heirloom piece.

Authentic Vintage Black Velvet Wiggle Dress
I adore this dress! It is so well made. It has boning inside the bodice. It is the only dress I can wear strapless without fear of a major wardrobe malfunction. I’m showing it with the straps here, but it is even sexier without them. This is a Jessica Rabbit dress for sure.
Embellished Neckline Little Black Dress
This is very understated and classic but the neckline is lovely. It is covered in beads, sequins and small stones. The cut is very flattering as it shows off the shoulder area and lightly skims the rest of the body.
What about a metallic maxi skirt instead of a LBD?
A full skirt paired with a sweater is a great alternative to a little black dress. This is such a glamorous unique look.

Same idea but in olive green with metallic bronze…so wonderful!

Are you a fan of little black dresses for parties? Or do you prefer to stand out in some pattern and colour?
Personally I am more apt to choose black if I want to come across as “serious and elegant”. If I’m after my usual “artsy and unusual” I most often choose colour and pattern.
Here are a few other little black dresses I’ve picked out.
