In fashion, there’s nothing as famous as the LBD, the Little Black Dress. Over the years, I’ve managed to create a whole collection of black dresses and many, many outfits with them up here on the blog. The LBD is extremely versatile, looks great on everyone, you can dress it up or down and it’s the perfect match for colorful details. Today, I want to show you my favorite LBD looks in three categories: casual, chic and special, and share a few current online shopping favorites – for everyone who wants to add something new to their wardrobe. :)

Casual combos work best with accessories, because they are able to dress the LBD down. Cardigans, boots, hats and scarves, flat shoes like sandals or sneakers (even though the sporty style is not my favorite), leggings and – if you dare to wear it like this – even jeans under your dress (this can be a super cool style, so just give it a try – I still have to, but my LBDs aren’t the best ones for this kind of styling)… They all create a casual style and work great with your favorite black dress. The best LBDs for casual looks are plain ones, not too many details, no lace or ruffles and preferably simple fabrics like jersey.
• LBD + Metallic • | • LBD + Green • | • LBD + Lace • | • LBD + Flowers • | • LBD + Coat • | • LBD + Glitter •
• LBD + Ruffles • | • LBD + Transparency • | • LBD + Fake Fur • | • LBD + One Shoulder • | • LBD + Fringes • | • LBD + Tulle •
You’ve probably noticed that my chic LBD styles are pretty plain – the dress is the center of attention and that’s why I choose special LBDs for chic looks, like those with unusual cuts (e.g. wrap dresses, one-shoulder dresses or strapless ones), special fabrics like lace, scuba or tulle, special details like ruffles, transparency, etc. I also love combining them with elegant accessories, like evening bags, metallic details or statement jewelry. Of course, high heels are the main part of a chic style, but you can also choose elegant flats like silver slippers or sandals.
Chic LBD styles are my favorites because they always look perfect and you can never be overdressed with them for special occasions. It’s an absolute classic and never fails to impress.

Of course, you can also create special looks with your LBD, extravagant styles with conspicuous details, like hats or turbans, shoes or your make-up. Even the LBD itself can be a special piece. It’s up to you how you style it and these are just a few ideas. I hope you found some inspiration today and maybe also another LBD favorite in my selection. Never forget: be creative and you’ll find the best way for you – fashion is fun and for everyone!
