The Little Black Dress

Famous for wearing the noir shade, it was none other than Coco Chanel who established the little black dress as a fundamental fashion frock back in the 1920s. Now a quintessential wardrobe staple, the LBD has since been reinvented a million times over, with shapes and silhouettes available to suit every woman.
From a casual lunch to a black tie affair, this simple garment transcends time and trends, and will get you where you need to go in style.
The reason it's called the perfect "little black dress" and not the perfect "little burgundy dress" is that a woman can to get the most wear out of versatile black – more than any other color – by dressing it up or down with other garments and accessories.
Have a lovely weekend beauties!!!
