You guys, I found it: the perfect LBMD.We all know and love our little black dresses because of their incredible versatility. You can always pull a great LBD out for whatever semi-formal events are coming your way. I also love to incorporate more casual dresses, ones that I can wear while running around town, or maybe going out for a casual dinner or lunch.
Enter this little black midi dress.
It’s from Old Navy (are we surprised?) and I purchased mine in the petite sizing (I ordered online since petites do not come in stores, and I’m wearing an XSP). It’s made of a thicker cotton fabric with some spandex for stretch, and it is the perfect dress to play with this summer.
Three Ways to Style It
- With heels, a long necklace, and a dressy clutch for a dinner date
- With embellished flat sandals and your favorite handbag for casual weekend activities
- With flat slip-on sneakers, a baseball cap, and a crossbody or backpack for running errands
Truthfully, this piece is such a blank canvas. You can play around with something like this and re-create it a dozen times; that’s what makes it so fantastic.
This LBMD comes in four colors, including black/white and grey/white stripes (which I also really love). To me, those striped options make for a more casual look overall, so if you’re the type who loves a great comfy dress for weekends, then there are plenty of options for you.
There is a small side slit that runs to the knee, which makes it easy-to-walk in and in no way scandalous. You will need either a convertible/strapless bra or a bra-clip to keep straps hidden away, the back is more of a racerback.
The best part? This dress is on sale for $20.
