There’s a reason why we consistently reach for our little black dresses for every occasion, whether it’s a work event or a holiday soirée — they’re tried-and-true winners that work with pretty much anything and with the right accessories, the LBD holds endless outfit possibilities.

However, this versatility has garnered the trusty LBD a reputation for being “basic,” which simply isn’t true.

With the right styles, the little black dress can make a statement all on its own and thankfully for us, this season has brought a fresh crop of one-of-a-kind dresses that feel cheeky, unique, and downright sexy — a boon, since the holiday parties are in full force.

Click through to find 20 badass little black dresses that are anything but basic — we know what we’ll be wearing to the parties this year.
