A LBD is the sartorial bread and butter of western society. Ever since Coco Chanel designed the classic little black dress in the 1920s, the style has remained iconic. A great little black dress can be dressed up or down, made modest or sexy, and worn in classic and edgier pairings. These ten little black dresses are a steal, and they'll be your go-tos this summer and beyond.
This LBD from Nastygal is long enough to tone down the sexy mesh of the bodice.
This t-shirt dress from ASOS is a casual kind of LBD, but will be just as classic in your closet as a hot day staple.
This cagey back little black dress from ASOS is a classic with a spiced-up back, and will look timeless from the front while making a statement anytime you turn around.
This fit and flare dress from Nastygal has enough pleat to give the skirt volume, and enough plunge on the sides to show off some serious skin.
This jersey shift from ASOS hangs in a cool and casual way to be dressed down and worn any and every day, and the lace-up neck makes it a bit sexier but still chic.
This slip dress on sale at Nastygal is sexy and sultry with the asymmetrical hem, just waiting to be spiced up with bold jewelry or toned down with a denim or colorful jacket.
This lace cami dress from Forever 21 is girly and sweet, but vampy in its bareness. Lace dresses are everywhere lately, and if you want to tone down the sexiness, pair it with a denim jacket and flat sandals or sneakers.
Finally, this bodycon dress from ASOS is sexy in its curve-hugging fit, but demure enough in its modest cut to be worn to the office, or dressed up with heels for drinks.
A great LBD can worn so many ways, and is best worn with a hefty amount of confidence. Pick your favorite and I challenge you to dress it up, dress it down, and wear it all summer.
