Summer Essential: The Modern LBD

Summer Essential: The Modern LBD

by Melissa Magsaysay

We’ve all heard of the LDB, the fashion staple that everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Karl Lagerfeld has canonized as a classic wardrobe staple on which to build on with, well, just about anything.

A timeless silhouette, gorgeous fabric and perhaps a pintuck detail or contrast button, maybe a flutter sleeve or wrap style neckline, the little black dress can become the canvas for sartorial greatness.

As versatile as the item is, the summer version of an LBD isn’t always easy to find. The fabric should be breezy but still feel significant, the sleeve length or strap width should be one that’s not too minimal to wear to the office or in a business meeting and the shape something that skims the body perfectly so as not to be clingy as the weather grows increasingly warmer.

Enter a line up of LB(S)Ds. The little black dress, but make it summer - cool, effortless and easy to wear with a heel or strappy sandal.

Here are 7 great summer-ready black dresses that beat the heat while looking endlessly chic.
