5 tips to make the LBD work for you: 
Find the LBD that is best for your body. Think in terms of proportion - look for a dress that counterbalances your natural volume. Still not sure? Try a wrap dress , which is an almost universally flattering cut.
Black not your most flattering color? 
Choose a LBD with a wide neckline and accessorize with a statement necklace in
your best color or metal.
Wear your LBD when the temps dip by layering over with a thick top and belting, or under with a close fitting cowl or turtleneck (this type of layering works especially well with low or wide neckline).
Think of the LBD as a wonderful canvas for those "work of art" type shoes that you love but can't seem to coordinate to any other outfit.
Last minute party invite? Don't stress! Think monochromatic chic. Throw on your LBD, slip into your black heels, grab a black clutch, swipe some black mascara on those lashes and finish the look with true red lips.
