60 Lavish Little Black Dresses

From Risque Polka Dot Numbers to Gowns Made from Umbrellas

— June 19, 2012 — Fashion
As every woman knows, one can never have too many lavish Little Black Dresses hanging in their closet.

The signature LBD is a trend that has never gone out of style and instead has been reworked and altered as many times as other wardrobe staples such as the white t-shirt and a good pair of jeans.

Currently, raven-hued frocks are being revived through the use of transparency. Hollywood starlets have been seen sporting the updated version of the classic style with varying degrees of showiness that ranges from the conservative to the devilishly daring. This peekaboo element has maintained the always glamorous, red carpet-ready vibe of the LBD while adding a bit of extra allure that will have ladies everywhere digging into their closets to give their old black frocks a DIY makeover.
