Forget the LBD—our friends over at The New York Times recently hailed the LBJ (little black jumpsuit) as this season's coolest look. (Apparently Cara Santana, Carine Roitfeld, Whitney Cummings, and Lupita Nyong'o already got the memo.)

We can certainly see why it's every fashionista's new go-to. It's an effortlessly stylish garment by itself, especially since you only have to lightly accessorize after you slip it on. Plus, it's incredibly slimming, in that it's all black and all one piece, so there's no extra bulk to worry about. And they're cut in several different ways, so you can shop for one that shows off your best feature. Look for something low-cut if you have a great bust, or choose one with cigarette legs if you have a shapely set of gams.

To quickly recap: The LBJ + a killer pair of heels + bold lipstick + a clutch = easy insta-chic, whether you're hitting the red carpet or a holiday party. Shop the look here!
