The Better LBD: Little Bright Dresses


From left: Lela Rose, Shoshanna, Alice + Olivia, Gryphon, Derek Lam.

Every woman’s got it: that tried-and-true black dress hanging her closet, the one that works as well at a company event as it does at a cousin’s wedding. It’s well-loved and well-worn, and, to be quite honest, it’s a bit of a fashion crutch. Push it to the back of the closet this season, because there’s a new LBD on the scene, the little bright dress.

Designers from Lela Rose to Derek Lam, Alice + Olivia to Gryphon clothing, are approaching the cocktail dress with an eye toward rainbow hues. For your next fancy affair, try a goldenrod Shoshanna dress in lieu of your favorite colorless frock. Pair it with nude shoes, delicate gold Alexis Bittar jewelry, and an easy up-do. It’s a look that’s sure to turn a few heads.
