Every girl’s closet is full of fun and organized critically-picked garments. From the basic white shirt to the fur coat, they’re one of a kind, priceless and memorable. But if there’s one thing that every girl should have is the little black dress. And here’s why:
Introduced in the late 1920s and first popular in the 1930s, the little black dress—a slim-fitting dress of varying length worn for dinners, cocktail parties, and evenings out—was one of the most popular fashions of the twentieth century. Along with blue jeans and the T-shirt, it is one of the most influential and important garments of the twentieth century. The little black dress made its debut in May 1926, with a pen and ink drawing in Vogue magazine by designer Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel (1883–1971). The magazine editors called the dress “Chanel’s ‘Ford,'” comparing the dress to the simply designed, economically priced black Ford Model T automobile. After that, it became a lion roaring in the fashion industry and has become an epitome of timeless style.
The beauty of the LBD is in its complete fashion versatility as an article of clothing. All you need to do is add a bit of sparkling jewelry and a silk scarf, and you’re ready for a night out on the town. Throw on a nice blazer and a pair of heels for an elegant daytime look. The simple dress can turn you into a living vintage woman!
Every woman looks great wearing it, and every woman has her own. It is the default date ensemble when it is one of those “I have nothing to wear” days. In fact, it is so popular, so necessary, and so much an institution in women’s fashion that it never fade away for centuries.
If you don’t have one, (Well, I’m sure you do though) you should! This classic dress will be your best friend. Just learn how to sparkle with it and you sure will be effortlessly gorgeous!
