Little black dresses are a fashion classic. Marie Claire has edited the coolest new styles, out now

Little black dresses – affectionately known to devotees as the ‘LBD’ – are a fashion staple that will run and run and no wardrobe would be complete without. Go on, admit it, how many have you got lurking about in yours?

They’re the ultimate fashion go-to and look great whatever the occasion. So whether you’ve got a last-minute dinner date or want a slightly more understated party look, we know what makes the top of your sartorial list.

For a casual daytime outfit they look perfect teamed over a T-shirt or shirt, paired with a trainer or boot. For a date, dress them with heels or brogues and delicate jewellery. And if you want to go all out looking super-glamorous for a night out or even black tie event, dress up with statement jewellery, an embroidered clutch bag and of course, a heel for total opulence.

One of our favourite things about the LBD is that you can wear them time and time again, the key is to update your accessories. A pair of new season shoes will always look sensational with whichever little black dress you choose, and never underestimate the importance of a beautiful bag or a pair of eye-catching earrings. When it comes to colour, from brights to nudes, anything goes!

For a new buy this season, if you’re looking for something a little extravagant head to DVF or Isabel Marant, or for something more classic look to Reiss or Whistles. If you don’t want to break the bank go to our high street faves for some great cheaper options – & Other Stories, Topshop and Marks & Spencer.
