Ever since Coco Chanel—and eventually Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast for Tiffany’s—showed the fashion industry how versatile a little black dress (fondly known as the LBD) is, all the ladies around the world know that they should have at least one LBD in their wardrobe. But given that dresses are quite pricey, it’s difficult to find one that would fit the budget just right but still give that versatility, comfort, and confidence boost. That’s why we’ve compiled a cheap little black dress list, with pieces under PHP 1,500. Sakto sa budget but confidently powering through, yes?
Susto The Label’s Saza Sleeveless Dress
This basic black dress is a must-have in your closet. The fit-and-flare style allows you to style it for both casual and semi-formal outings. If you want to up your game, put a leather jacket over it and wear some knee-high boots.
Zalora’s Ruffle Hem Off Shoulder Dress
This ruffled LBD is perfect for when you have a work day full of meetings but have no time to change for your night out. Don’t forget to bring a light scarf if you think the weather will turn cold.
Pull & Bear’s Pleated Velvet Dress With Straps
If you want the basic LBD but with a different material, then you should grab this pleated dress made out of velvet. This material gives your outfit that shine that would add to your own beautiful glow. Pair it with some colorful sneakers if you’re looking to go casual — or some red heels if you’re heading out for a date night!
H&M’s Short Sweatshirt Dress
This dress is perfect for a casual hangout with your barkada. Grab a pair of sneakers and a cap and you’re off to look a little sporty yet still lovely. If you put on a scarf over your neck and tuck it in with a belt (like this!) and pair it with knee-high boots, then you’re ready to hit the club!
Pomelo’s Side Cut Out Sheer Floral Dress
If you’re tired of the endless expanse of darkness that dominates most LBDs (there’s a reason it’s called little black dress, you know), then maybe what you need is some fun, floral print. Wear some gladiator sandals with this sheer, floral LBD with those side cut outs to add more attractiveness points.
Penshoppe’s Sheath Dress
This straight-cut dress will fit your professional office dress code perfectly. Put on a white blazer if you have a meeting scheduled. Or if you want a more casual vibe, a cardigan over this sheath dress will work amazingly.
Bench’s Cold Shoulder Dress
