These 5 #OOTDs Prove There's Nothing Quite Like An LBD

Karl Lagerfeld once said: "One is never overdressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress." How right he was. With the constant ebb and flow of trends, it's comforting (and economically sound) to have one item in your wardrobe that never goes out of style.
Versatility is a key trait in the perfect LBD. But, just because we want it to be office-friendly, cocktail-party-appropriate, and last-minute-date-ready doesn't mean the silhouette is doomed to be boring.
Want proof? We found five #OOTDs that make the classic piece look contemporary. From leather paneling to asymmetrical hems, see how fashion bloggers are revamping the old-school style. Same simplicity — even more chic.
