In short: with a Little Black Dress you will always have the perfect party look!
History of the Little Black Dress
Fashion designer Coco Chanel designed the first Little Black Dress during the twenties; it appeared in the American Vogue in 1926. The design was simple: a skirt just below the knee and a rather straight cut overall. Because of the simple design this dress worked for women of all social classes, this was the beginning of the successful black dress.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
The best-known version of the Little Black Dress can be seen in the movie classic Breakfast at Tiffany's, in which leading lady Audrey Hepburn can be seen wearing an LBD. The French singer Edith Piaf also cut quite a figure in an LBD. People say she deliberately chose to wear the well-known black dress because colourful clothing would detract from her voice.
Little Black Dress styling
Little Black Dresses are available in many styles, sizes and designs, so you'll have a matching LBD for every occasion. It also strongly depends on the occasion whether you should complete your look with a pair of sturdy black pumps, sexy heels or go for a more sporty style. The matching accessories, jewellery and bags, also depend on the occasion. If it's a gala night, don't wear a watch with your LBD. If it's an official event, don't be too sexy and select stylish shoes. Is it for a party? Wear some great sexy heels, a pretty bag and flashy jewellery.
