Trend watch: Little black dresses under $200

The debut of Breakfast at Tiffany’s on Broadway (Mar 20) inspired us to track down affordable LBDs in a range of silhouettes and styles.

Ever since Audrey Hepburn donned an LBD in the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s, the colorless cocktail dress has become a classic wardrobe staple. The story’s revival on Broadway (debuts Mar 20) inspired us to track down affordable variations in a range of silhouettes. Look for bodycon versions from SuperTrash and Forever 21, ruffled styles from Old Navy and QVC, and plus-size options from Calvin Klein and Avenue.

See the show! Breakfast at Tiffany’s opens Mar 20 at the Cort Theatre (138 W 48th St between Sixth and Seventh Aves; 212-239-6200, breakfastattiffanysonbroadway.com; $37–$127).
