What: A little black dress is a wardrobe staple as old as the hills, but this number by Shoshanna is a welcome update on the classic.
Who: Shoshanna Gruss, who has helmed her namesake label since 1998, knows what women want: elegant styles that are timeless yet current. Her line has found fans in Kelly Ripa and Mindy Kaling, among others. With styles like the Elizabeth dress: it’s easy to see why.
Why: Thanks to an asymmetrical hemline, textured fabric, and a thoroughly modern silhouette, this dress is a no-brainer addition to your existing repertoire. Style it for day with a lug sole boot and biker jacket, or up the ante for evening with a ladylike court and embellished clutch.
How much: $398
