There’s a reason that the famed little black dress Channeling Cocos Favorite Trend on a Budget: Little Black Party Dresses for Winter under $50, a.k.a. Coco Chanel’s favorite trend, has endured as a go-to style for so long, given the fickle-minded nature of the fashion industry. These little black party dresses are unparalleled when it comes to flattering nearly all shapes, serving as elegant backdrops for the rest of your statement pieces: your scarf, a statement necklace, or a pop of vibrant color from your handbag. This winter season, pair any of these affordable dresses with black tights (solidly opaque or otherwise) to do your gams some major service.
