Though we might be a little more used to seeing her in crop tops and romantic, bohemian dresses, Taylor Swift wore a black shift dress out in Los Angeles, according to Us Weekly, and it definitely makes a case for switching up your usual LBD. Edgy seriously suits her.

We've seen Swift's style evolve over the years, going from cowgirl boots, to vintage frocks, to crop tops, to mini dresses, and her latest might just be the best yet. The "Wildest Dreams" singer went to her friend's birthday party in L.A. on Monday, and she wore a slightly uncharacteristic dress. The David Froma frock was black, mini (of course), and featured a plunging, V-neckline, but the best part was definitely the macrame sleeves. It was such a cool way to switch up the standard LBD game.

Swift's shoes were equally as amaze. The strappy, black Christian Louboutin sandals totally complemented the dress's detailing, and helped up the edgy vibe even more. As per usual, Swift completed the look with her signature red lip, classic thing. 

As much as I love her pastels and flirty dresses, I think this sexy, more mature style totally suits her new music era.

Slay. If you want a slightly more exciting LBD like Taylor's, here are seven dresses that show a little extra skin to shop.

1. Macrame

Macrame gives off vintage vibes. (Dry Lake; $120; luisaviaroma.com).

2. Cut-Out Sleeves

This dress is similar to Taylor's, but without the $1,800 price-tag. (Calvin Klein; $76.80; amazon.com).

3. Cut-Out Neckline

If you want something a little more subtle, try this one with a cutout neckline. (Elie Tahari; $278.60; neimanmarcus.com).

4. Sheer

If cut-outs are too edgy for you, try sheer. (Elizabeth and James; $243.75; bloomingdales.com).

5. Maxi

Not all LBD's have to be mini. (BCBGeneration; $63.20; 6pm.com).

6. Lace



Basically the classiest way to show skin. (Vera Wang; $89.99; saksoff5th.com).

7. Short-Sleeved



If you aren't into long-sleeved dresses, this short-sleeved dress still has plenty of detailing. (Socialite; $29.97; nordstromrack.com).
