The LBD has been a mainstay in our fashion lexicon since Audrey Hepburn famously donned Givenchy in "Breakfast At Tiffanys". Think of the little black dress as the stallion in your wardrobe stable--this one item can be worn so many ways that it could very well be the only thing in your closet. With the holiday season in full swing that dress is going to get a serious work out. Dress it up with an armful of bangles, killer heels and a cropped jacket for an evening out or layer it over a turtleneck with some wedge booties for the office holiday party. However you wear it, look your best in a little black dress that shows off your shape--whether tall or petite, curvy or straight, there's a perfect LBD out there for you. Check out our slideshow below and shop your shape.
