Style Tip: Little Black Dresses (Winter Edition)


When attending a wedding as a guest you can’t go wrong with a little black dress. It’s always in style and won’t show when you spill a little red wine or get sweaty on the dance floor. The little black dress or “LBD” became important after Coco Chanel starting selling them back it in 1926. Wiki says “the little black dress is considered essential to a complete wardrobe by many women and fashion observers, who believe it a “rule of fashion” that every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion: for example, worn with a jacket and pumps for daytime business wear or with more ornate jewelry and accessories for evening. Because it is meant to be a staple of the wardrobe for a number of years, the style of the little black dress ideally should be as simple as possible: a short black dress that is too clearly part of a trend would not qualify because it would soon appear dated.”
