Fashion Item of the Week: The Little Blue Dress

by Michelle Joni Lapidos
11.27.2007

It’s still as true as ever: You can never go wrong with an LBD. Except now the B stands for blue – a deep, polished, royal shade of sapphire-navy to be precise. Blue has the power to maintain the simple sexiness of black, yet it’s feisty enough to pop in a crowd. But don’t totally ditch your black—accessorize with it. The black-and-blue bruise theory has long expired, and together, the dark colors look surprisingly chic. Besides, blue is the new black, so just mix it all together and start partying already!

The shift shape, the big bow, the bare shoulder… this dress gets everything right. It hangs sweetly and ends abruptly to display this summer’s number one asset: legs. The simple black pumps do the walking and allow the LBD to do all the talking.

Jay Godfrey One-Shoulder Bow Dress in Blue Sapphire - $440.00

For a more modest take on the new LBD, try something long sleeved and silky. Whether you belt it or leave it boxy, you can go crazy with jewelry just as you would on a Little Black Dress. Tip: Pound shots of Blue Curacao to match your mood.

Maggy London Belted Charmeuse Shift Dress - $138.00 (on sale this second at Nordstrom for $91.90!)

Va va va voom. And not the popping cleavage… but the popping color. The hue is deep enough to write a novel about it and flashy enough to get you all the VIP treatment you desire. Try it with bright red glossy lips, a black cuff, and black patent Louboutins. Now that’s a look that no little black dress could rival.

Nicole Miller Strapless Dress in Royal Blue - $290.00

Take this jersey LBD from day to night. Hell, ear it the next day too. If you switch up the accessories enough, standard Little Black Dress rules still apply.

Forever 21 V Neck Knit Dress in Royal - $24.80
