Trend To Try: The Ethical LBD

The little black dress (LBD) is my favorite wardrobe staple. It's timeless, ready at a moments notice, and is perfect for any occasion. If you get a good quality piece that's comfortable and fits well, it will last you FOREVER. I use the LBD for dates, weddings, meetings, and everything in between. I'm so obsessed with the LBD that I collect them. Here are three ethically made LBD's that I have on heavy rotation (from left to right):

1. Cossac

The midi dress is here to stay. I was skeptical of the midi dress for a long time. It felt too long and too short all at the same time. Awkward. However, I worked with this trend until I found the cut that was right for me. I like a slim midi cut that has a slit - so I can actually walk comfortable in it and not look like I have to pee. I do love the flowey midi cut as well but it doesn't quite suit me as well as the slim cut. Anyway, I found this v neck, jersey tank dress from Cossac and fell in love. It's the perfect casual LBD that you can style to be sexy or layer to be casual. Plus, the fabric is like butter.

2. Reformation

The shirt dress is a timeless trend and this shimmery number will keep you classy and sophisticated. It's the perfect balance of modest and sexy. I wear it for meetings all the time; just throw it on with some tall boots or over leggings and it's instantly casual.

3. Stormie Dreams

This slinky, super sexy number is the perfect slip dress. Wear it alone for some epic drama or layer over a sweater or a tee for a casual yet chic look. Slip dresses are my go-to for Summer when it heats up. They're endlessly versatile and so comfortable. I love to pair mine with minimal style sneakers for maximum comfort. In fact, in the photo below, I'm wearing some plain white platform sneakers with all three dresses. Simple, chic outfits are the way to go!
