Taylor Swift probably wasn’t talking about a little black dress when she sang “we’ll never go out of style”, but she may as well have been.

The little black dress – or LDB for short – has been a wardobe staple for women around the world for decades, carrying us through the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s… the list goes on.

It’s the perfect choice for last-minute plans, events where you’re not sure of the dress code and even (you guessed it) New Year’s Eve.

In fact, the LDB is probably one of the best picks for your NYE outfit, because it keeps you looking and feeling good while the rest of your ensemble – from your accessories, to your makeup – shines.

Of course, given how timeless and versatile little black dresses are, most of us have been rocking the same one for years now.

But as we’re about to step into 2022 it’s time for a wardrobe upgrade, and that means finding a new LBD that will have you feeling a million bucks.

Whether you’re after a dress that enhances your best assets, smooths areas you’re self-conscious about, or makes you stand out from the crowd, there’s a LBD out there for everyone.

And the best part is, your new frock will (probably) never go out of style!
