The little black dress used to be synonymous with slinky, thigh-grazing, body-con frocks. These days, I'd argue that the LBD is more of a state of mind—it's less overtly seductive but rather quietly alluring. Because not everyone wants, or even feels comfortable, wearing a look-at-me dress. (Although, of course, if that's your thing, more power to you.) The notion of feeling sassy means different things to different people. It might be a tied waist, a flash of décolletage or a glimpse of shoulder. For that reason, I've created an edit of my favourite LBDs with a 2020 twist. Some are classic mini, but rest assured there are also midi dresses, slips and some that have subtle details to make you feel chic but slinky.
