The Little Black Dress: A Timeless Fashion Item
This little fashion item is so famous, it even has it's own abbreviation — the LBD. The Little Black Dress or LBD is one of those items that every girl's got to have hanging in her wardrobe. It's the kind of outfit that you invest in once, but can wear it many times over. For this reason, it is a good idea to find one that fits you perfectly, and forget about the price tag with this item. It will be well worth it in the end.
The infamous, and very stylish, Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel was the first to introduce black as a fashionable color. Her version of the LBD was a simple, sleeveless dress that was tailored and ended just above the knee. This design was published in a 1926 issue of Vogue magazine and has remained an iconic fashion piece to this day. It can very well stand its own, amongst today's most trendy fashion pieces.
The LBD can be worn in many ways. Wear it with a pair of sexy, black stilettos for a simple, pulled together look or dress it up with killer heels and bold jewelry. If you feel like updating the look to give it a more modern twist, accessorize it with a thick, colored belt that cinches at the waist, or try tying a bright, silk scarf around your waist for a different, yet chic effect.
So that's dressing it up covered, but can you dress this little number down a notch? Absolutely, Yes! The LBD can even serve as a formal work outfit, just throw a button-up shirt over the top, add a sophisticated scarf, and finish it off with a jacket and your look is complete.
When shopping for your own iconic LBD, take your time. Explore the styles and find one that suits you and remember to use this style as a canvas to complete your stylish look.
