Does Lilly Pulitzer Make Black Dresses? The Brand Has Done The "Onyxpected"

The Lilly Pulitzer brand has its instantly recognizable signatures. It's known for preppy prints and bright, cheery floral dresses with a slightly vintage aesthetic. It's also big on pink. But Lilly Pulitzer LBDs (sizes XS to XL) exist — that's little black dresses — which are a closet staple that suit innumerable occasions. From weddings to date nights to work functions to a GNO, an LBD is a wardrobe essential.

Last fall, Lilly Pulitzer did something "onyxpected." The brights-focused brand introduced a custom black shade dubbed "Onyx." You can't and won't find this particular black hue anywhere else. The Onyx pieces proved so popular that Lilly P. brought the color back for 2018. Several iconic, classic styles and popular resort looks are now available in anything-but-basic black.

There are so many Onyx shapes and silhouettes to chose from. The lacy Camella dress, the Caroline silk tunic, the Karlie Wrap Romper, and many, many more frocks come in this not-too-dark yet not-really-charcoal-either version of black.

If you are #allblackeverything and prefer dark clothes over the beachy and cheery fabrics and fare that Lilly Pulitizer is known for, you will be magnetically drawn to the brand's Onyx offerings. If you're anything like me and appreciated Lilly Pulitzer frocks from afar but never pursued a purchase due to the colors, that fashion dilemma is now effectively solved.

This is the aesthetic that comes to mind when most of us think of L. Pulitzer and its wares, er, wears.

But this is also part of the brand's assortment ATM. If you've admired the Lilly Pulitzer silhouettes but weren't feeling the sunny, vibrant prints, you can now shop the brand.
