Personally, I think little black dresses (aka LBD) should be more Audrey Hepburn than Lindsay Lohan – emphasis on the ‘dress’ and not on the ‘little.’ But it’s hard to find a good LBD that isn’t boring and too simple to be stunning. For me, anyway, it is. I figure, wrongly, that to be universal and appropriate for many an occasion, it must not be trendy.
Well, I don’t think I’m wrong so much as misguided. There are plenty LBDs that are both on trend and simply sophisticated. Banana Republic, a brand I love but unfortunately I love it so much I’m tired of it, has a great new section called…Little Black Dresses.
Here’s a sampling of the Banana Republic dresses:
Now it might be a tad early in the season to really start looking for ‘party’ dresses, but file this little tidbit away for when you do need to find that perfect dress. I think there might just be something for every woman here, with every type of figure.
Oh, and while you’re perusing, you’ve just gotta check out Banana’s new ‘Mad Men‘collection. Just stunning. I wish I worked in an office, just so I could wear some of these things.
