Little Black Dress is the tenth song from One Direction's third studio album, Midnight Memories.

The song was featured on the Where We Are Tour setlist and the On The Road Again Tour setlist.

Lyrically, the song is on an unnamed girl wearing a black dress as she enters the party.

Background

"Little Black Dress" was originally Teddy Gieger's, with One Direction purchasing it from him. 

The song depicts a man watching an attractive woman in a black dress entering a party. He refers to the woman as "little black dress" because he does not know her name yet.

The song resembles The Rolling Stones signature sound.

Billboard listed the song in a 2015 article titled 'Songs That Should've Been Singles' and stated the track was "better than anything The Strokes had released in the past decade".

Lyrics

[Harry and Louis]
Little black dress just walked into the room
Making heads turn can't stop looking at you
It’s not right, it’s not right, it’s not right, you know

Little black dress did you come here alone
It’s too late, it's too late, it's too late to go home
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright you know
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright you know

[Zayn, Harry, and Louis]
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me

[Harry and Louis]
Little black dress who you doin’ it for
Little black dress I can't take any more
It’s not right, it’s not right, it’s not right, you know

Little black dress whats your favorite song
Little black dress I won't do ya no harm
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, you know
It’s alright, It’s alright 'cause I'll talk you home

[All]
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me

I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me

I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me baby
I wanna see the way you move for me
