Every woman knows she should own at least one little black dress. I have at least five somewhere in my closet! This chic classic has been a wardrobe staple for years. Why? Because not only does it practically go with EVERYTHING, it also flatters all figures, whether you're petite, curvy or pregnant.

I love how this one piece can be worn so many ways. It can be dressed down on the weekends with some knee-high boots and a leather jacket or totally glammed up with some pumps and glitzy accessories for a formal evening look. This wardrobe must-have can definitely come in handy now with the holiday season approaching--you can get away with wearing the same black frock a ton of ways to all your festive parties. The key is to opt for an LBD that works best for your shape. And believe me there is a perfect one out there for you! Play up your figure with some of these super stylish little black dresses!

Large chested chicas should go for a dress that doesn’t necessarily feature a high neck, but that leaves enough room to sport a supportive bra like this figure-flattering pencil dress. The boat neck and form fitting style hugs the body in all the right places. And the chic black alligator belt helps enhance the waistline.
