When it comes to party season, we are all about the little black dress—especially because black can be anything but basic. For proof, just look at the five LBDs we have rounded up for today’s Top Buys story. When you are armed with one of these beauties, you are set to stun. Trust us. How do we know? It comes down to a simple piece of knowledge: when wearing a little black dress, you should look for dresses that feature an interesting silhouette, an eye-catching embellishment, or a textured fabric. (Or all three!) For instance, that sequined number by Dolce Vita stands out because it is covered in shimmering, two-tone sequins that ensure it glimmers with every twist and turn you make. Likewise, the Keepsake dress features an open back that is subtly sexy and easy-to-wear. So, whether you choose one of these two or one of our other three picks, you are guaranteed to turn heads—and it is all because of the three elements we mentioned earlier. Of course, it also never hurts to pair your LBD with a killer accessory or two, so we have picked out a fab bag-turned-clutch for you to carry, plus a pair of super-chic heels that are sure to flatter the leg. Now, you just need to pencil in a party or two and you are all set! Read on for all the details and happy shopping!
