Today I’d love to chat about Audrey Hepburn’s iconic Little Black Dress! Perhaps you’re looking for the perfect LBD to wear to a wedding. Or maybe you’re looking for an Audrey Hepburn-inspired little black dress to wear as a Halloween costume. Either way, I’m sharing a round-up of favorite LBDs below!
THE HISTORY OF THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS
Audrey Hepburn made the little black dress (otherwise known as the LBD) famous. From the opening scene in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, as Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly strolls Fifth Avenue, peering into the window at Tiffany’s, croissant in hand, every woman watching mentally added LBD to their wardrobe wishlist.
And now, over 60 years later, the LBD still stands the test of time.
Whether you’re on the hunt for a designer LBD to add to your sartorial repertoire or you’re looking for an affordable option to wear to a costume party (Halloween, anyone?) — below you’ll find 25 options that fit the bill.
Check them out and LMK if you have a favorite!

WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO LATELY
Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA. I took a break to enjoy my birthday with my parents who were in town visiting. It was so fun to show them our house for the first time and to do absolutely nothing. We swam, we played games, I learned a ton of interesting family history (movie-worthy in fact), never left the house other than for walks around the neighborhood, which is currently filled with adorable bunnies, hooting owls and blooming flowers. It was blissful and just what the doctor ordered.
Lately I have been practicing the art of doing nothing and spoiler alert: I’m really good at it! I’m easing back into the swing of things with this Audrey Hepburn-inspired Little Black Dress.
It reminds me so much of what Holly Golightly wore in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. While I originally bought it to wear to our Cocktails at Tiffany’s party during Modernism Week, it would be perfect for wedding season.
It comes in many pretty colors, including a pearl pink I’m considering scooping up as well. You could wear it to a wedding, or it would even make a perfect bridesmaids dress.
Now who do I know that is getting married? I’d like to wear this beyond my backyard!
