Here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we believe there are a few items that every girl should have in our closet—a camel coat here, a boyfriend blazer there—but of all these essentials, nothing is more vital right now than a little black dress! Happily, given that party season is swiftly approaching, we have taken the liberty of rounding up eight of the best little black dresses on the market right now, and we are pleased to report that there is something for everyone. Lace? Check! Leather? Check! Long sleeves? Accented waists? Check! Check! On that note, we suggest you don’t hesitate! Click through to today’s Top Buys story to discover all the details on the eight LBDs we are coveting right now!
As we mentioned earlier, we have something for everyone in today’s story. For instance, if you tend to err on the feminine side of fashion, you are probably looking for a little black dress in a flirty fabric like chiffon or silk. On that note, we suggest you check out A.L.C.’s Marni Drawstring Silk Dress ($495). The silky fabric gives this dress a luxe feel, but the sporty silhouette will keep it on the low-key side. On the other hand, if you need something with a little more pizazz, we suggest you check out Holy Tee’s Yves Dress ($322). The peasant-style silhouette may evoke thoughts of signature Yves Saint Laurent, but this dress is oh-so modern, which means you get the best of both worlds! If you want to kick it up a notch, look for a dress with interesting embellishments or textures. We love Nasty Gal’s Gold Rush Dress ($68). Not only does the gold-bar trim along the neckline and hem give it an edgy twist, but the deep scoop back adds a subtly sexy element. We also like Reiss’s Foxy Lace Sleeve Dress ($210). This dress is perfect for the girl who wants to stand out, but doesn’t want to show too much skin. The lace allows you to show just a hint of skin, plus it gives the dress a flirty, feminine touch.
Now, if you prefer a little black dress with an edge, we have some perfect picks for you. For example, who can resist Mango’s Low-Back Dress ($59.90)? The fitted silhouette is oh-so flattering, but we particularly love the wax-like texture as it gives the dress a leather-like finish. And that brings us to our next pick: Gestuz’s Body-Conscious Leather Cut Out Dress ($359.40). We just adore the boldness of this dress—from the cut-out panels at the waist to the super-soft leather finish. Even better, you don’t need to be overly confident to pull this dress off; on the contrary, you can balance this dress with a chunky knit sweater or a cashmere coat. Finally, we wouldn’t be able to wrap up this story without providing you with some shimmering sequined dress—this is party season, after all! On that note, we love Backstage’s Sequin Fever Bodycon Dress ($168). It has a simple silhouette, which not only allows the sequins to take center stage, but also allows you to dress it up or down, depending on the dress code. We are equally enamored with Topshop’s Knitted Sequin Zig Zag Dress ($118). The longer sleeves and knitted fabric balance out the glam sequins, without taking away from the overall vibe.
