Only the finest of things are granted universally recognized acronyms, and the LBD is no exception. Though a quick Google search reveals that the shorthand also serves as the code for the Khudzhand Airport, to most the LBD is that mystical item that hangs in one’s closet, waiting to rescue its owner from outfit indecision. Like most staple articles of clothing, some LBDs are simply better than others. Case in point: this frock by Christopher Kane. Its cinched waist flatters any figure, and an unexpected cutout grants the ideal amount of sex appeal. They’ll hate to see you go, but they’ll love to watch you leave. Priced at $1,195 and available at Barneys.
