Little Black Dresses for Every Size

I'm not going to preach about the necessity of a good black dress. That's basically like trying to sell you on blue jeans. You already know your wardrobe needs one, and you probably already have two or three. So instead of telling you the zillion ways to wear a black cocktail dress—which I will not call a "LBD," because it's insulting—I'm just going to corral some for you. With a great option for every size from 0 to 24, there's no excuse not to have one. (There's also no excuse because they're like oxygen, or blue jeans, or Facebook. You need them.)
