Black is often seen as "boring" when it comes to party wear, and it's true that the little black dress is the failsafe of many a desperate woman with nothing to wear. There's a reason why this look is a classic, though, and that reason is epitomised by Dolce & Gabbana's black strapless flounce dress.
Designed to flatter the figure with its nipped in waist and slightly ruffled bodice, the flounces on the hem and buckle detail at the waist make it a little more interesting than some LBDs we could mention. All it needs is a fabulous pair of heels in any colour you like, and you're good to go. Assuming you have $1285 to pay for it, obviously.
