During tight economic times, the “little black dress” is one of the best fashion investments you can make. Every petite woman looks great in it. Here are five good reasons to own the little black dress (LBD):
The little black dress was introduced to the fashion world by Coco Chanel and remains a timeless classic for every petite woman’s wardrobe. In 1926 Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel published a picture of a short, simple black dress in Vogue. It was calf-length, straight, and decorated only by a few diagonal lines. Vogue called it “Chanel’s Ford.” Like the Model T, the little black dress was simple and accessible for women of all social classes.
Vogue also said that the LBD would become “a sort of uniform for all women of taste.”
2. The little black dress knocks pounds off every figure.
Black is always elegant and always slimming. Whether you are a size 2 or a size 16, a pear-shape or an hourglass figure, the little black dress makes a flattering choice.
You can dress it up or dress it down. The best little black dresses go right from the office to a formal affair with just a change of accessories.
You can be all business in a little black dress with a brightly colored jacket and patent leather pumps.
That same little black dress paired pearls and strappy black beaded sandals can take you our for a night on the town!
4. It doesn’t cost a fortune to look simply fabulous.
The beauty of the little black dress is that it is available in a wide variety of styles and price ranges. Stretch your clothing budget by choosing the little black dress in a seasonless fabric such as silk, wool jersey, wool crepe, or a poly/rayon blend.
Black goes with every look, rocker chick, the professional, chic girl and the LBD is always a hit for Miss elegant!
5. The little black dress is unmatched in versatility.
The only possible equivalent is a men’s navy blazer. The little black dress solves the dilemma of what to wear because it always looks right! You can wear your little black dress everywhere, special events and always on holiday occasions you simply can’t go wrong. Hollywood celebrities got it down when it comes to the LBD, so if you are ever in doubt go black you just can’t miss! By Ann Lauren
