What is a little black dress?

A little black dress, or LBD, is probably the most iconic and essential women’s clothing item of our time. Long or short, casual or formal, the only real requirement a dress must satisfy to fall into this category is color.

What is the history of the little black dress?

There’s no real inventor of the LBD, but we can thank fashion icon Coco Chanel for showing us how critical the little black dress is to a woman’s complete wardrobe. Her 1920s designs demonstrated the versatility and timeless appeal of the style, propelling it to its “LBD” status. As is the case with many classic fashions, Dior’s “New Look” collection solidified that status, and ensured that the little black dress would be here to stay. The most iconic of the little black dresses—or any dresses, for that matter—was designed by Givenchy and worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Who should wear a little black dress?

Everyone. Really. We can think of about a million reasons that you need a little black dress, and not one reason why you shouldn’t have one. There are more options among LBDs than practically any other style of clothing, so finding one you like, that fits your budget and body type is easy. From simple little black dresses for day wear, to black cocktail dresses, and everything in between, there is truly a perfect little black dress for everyone.

Where should I wear my LBD, and how should it be styled?

Little black dress fashion is easy—you can wear a black dress for most occasions, and the color makes it the perfect canvas for a variety of accessories. Casual, daytime LBD outfits call for booties or flats and a roomy handbag. You can go for a sophisticated monochromatic all black look, or use your accessories for pops of color. A little black party or cocktail dress cannot be styled without statement jewelry, elegant heels or strappy sandals, and a clutch or small handbag.
