Little Black Dress (July 2012)

The LBD

Not since Coco Chanel introduced her masterpiece to the women of the 1920s has a piece of clothing been so ubiquitous as the LBD. Fast forward almost a century later and the LBD is still a staple piece in every woman’s closet. Whether fitted or flowing, chiffon or jersey, the LBD in its many forms and shapes has made its way into our closets and our hearts as a must item for every season and every woman.

Here are the Favluv picks:

1. alice + olivia Victoria Peplum Dress   $264

This dress is sexy without being ‘in your face’. The fabric allows for the show of silhouette, while the peplum waist hides any imperfections. It covers just enough skin so that it can be worn to a work function and teamed with a pair of bright colored pumps for a night out on the town!

2. Herve Leger Off-the-shoulder Bandage Dress   $1150

The bandage dress is almost as ubiquitous as the LBD itself. Teamed together for a form fitting, curve hugging, classic evening piece that will never go out of style. Minimize the accessories and hair tied up in a chignon to emphasis the feminine neckline, and voila! Chic-ness without any pretention.

3. See by Chloe Halter Neck Dress in Burnout Jersey   $336.37

A little black dress that is a little bit of fun. For anyone who is looking for a balance of sexy and cute, this dress will not miss. A halter neckline with a chiffon scarf fastening and flared skirt, this dress promises a bit of cheekiness but has the classic lines of a LBD.
