Snooze-Proof LBDs That Feel Extra-Festive

When you look back at 2011 and realize that you're wearing the same little, black sample-sale score in half your Facebook pictures (you know, the same one that also made appearances in 2010), perhaps it's time to search around for a new LBD. Cut the shift dresses and simple frocks; We want a staple piece that's anything but cookie-cutter. With leather accents, sexy cut-outs, and fun collars, it's completely possible to make a statement in a solid-colored dress. Forget what you thought a Little Black Dress should be, and shop around for a fresh, new addition your Facebook friends are bound to "like."
