If there are three letters that make every fashion girls heart flutter they have to be: “LBD.” The little black dress has been a cornerstone of fashion for decades—with the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s Givenchy dress being the epitome of the classic LBD we all know and love. While LBD may suggest classic, fashion girls everywhere are wearing their classic black dress anything but—the new LBD trend is distressed.
While the radical trend first emerged last year on the runway, based on the looks of style setters like Angela from LA Label Junkie and Samira from Leather to Lunch, it’s here to stay. ELLE UK says “The mood of rebellion is not just trickling down to the trends, it’s positively pouring,” and when ELLE decrees a trend, we listen. And because of this, we made sure to select a few distressed dresses that we know you’ll love. So, whether you like fringe or tears or asymmetry, there’s an LBD on this list for everyone.
To complete the look, take a note from these and pair your distressed LBD with something classic—black pumps and a simple clutch are great looks. Want to embrace the destroyed look? Lace up heels will get you there.
