10 LBDs Under $100

It’s undeniable that when it comes to fashion and style, the Little Black Dress (LBD) is a perennial must. LBDs have stood the test of time because they look great on basically any body shape and suit almost all occasions (except for weddings..).

The key to making your LBD stand out is by rocking it with a pop of color, matching it with gorgeous gold or metallic accessories or strutting it out with a pair of killer heels.  

Whatever the occasion or look you’re going for, you can ALWAYS depend on a LBD. And better yet, who doesn’t love a timeless dress at an amazing price? We looked store-after-store and page-upon-page to discover the 10 must-have LBDs for under $100! You’re welcome ladies, and happy shopping!



Channeling your inner-Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is key to wearing a classic LBD. Go with a simple cut with no embellishments like this classic version by Topshop ($58).

A Wrap LBD is ideal for corporate/work events which require touch of formal while not sacrificing on style. The plunge in Lulus Wrap Dress ($29) is absolutely gorgeous and flattering for most body types.

What we love about Lookbook Store's Open Back dress ($23) is that it’s tight, classy and is perfect for an evening at a club or sipping on cocktails at some fancy bar.

Leather is a Vixen’s best friend and is the ideal fabric for a LBD. We’re definitely loving Forever 21’s ($22.99) faux leather shift dress which looks classy with a little tie around the neck.
