If there's one piece that lives in your closet that you turn to time and time again, it's the LBD, the little black dress. It is your fashionable best friend. Your go-to when the tough gets going. Your secret weapon. And the varieties for fall aren't any different. This season, instead of just keeping things in blackout mode, designers opted to pair their most wearable dresses with splashes of white, cutout detail and loads of volume. Say hello to the new LBDs of fall.

Bigger is Better
When it came to that little black number on Aquilano.Rimondi's catwalk, the look was all about volume. Rather than play the role of vixen, Aquilano.Rimondi gave its LBDs a hint of whimsy, an almost girlish twist. With hearts, puffed sleeves with white detail and loads of volume in the skirt, this little black dress isn't your typical find.

If it's dead sexy that you're going for, opt for what Altuzarra sent down its runways. Think LBDs with not just super-high slits, but cutouts to boot. Haute and hot. Paired with a white jacket, the look is as modern as it is daring.

Jill Stuart
Known for her overtly feminine styles, Jill Stuart also sent a smattering of LBDs down the runway, and like Altuzarra, they were also part of the cutout trend. But like Aquilano.Rimondi they were as sweet as could be. Paired with a white collar, this demur little black dress is perfect for an upscale dinner.

And there you have it, three different but essential styles of little black dresses just waiting for you to try on for size.
