Ever since 1920s when Coco Chanel and Jean Patou designed little black dress, one of the basic fashion rules is that every woman should have a LITTLE BLACK DRESS in her wardrobe. However, have you ever stopped to think why and how much power the LBD has? We are here to answer all your questions.
A LBD, a fashion classic was designed to be versatile and simple. In other words, it is suited for any occasion. The neutral colour of the dress enables women to combine it with any other piece of clothes and accessory. That is the key of the versatility of the LBD.
Depending on the other pieces of clothes and accessories, you can wear both a business wear and a highly formal and elegant dress for special occasions. Add a red leather jacket to your LBD and you’ve got the rocker chic style.
For the sultry look, wear the LBD with red lips. Break the monotony of the look and wear your LBD with red heels and a red clutch bag. A jacket, ankle boots and a LBD is the perfect combination for business wear. Even if you are crazy about the boho style, you can wear a LBD dress. Wear it with tall boots and layer on long necklaces.
Another reason why the LBD is never out of style and why so many women around the world are crazy about it is the neutral black colour. Black makes you slimmer and we can admit now: we all always want to look a little bit slimmer no matter the occasion. In addition, the LBD makes women who wear it taller.
According to colour psychology, black associates people to something secretive and unknown. Another thing we can admit as well: we all need a touch of mystery in our lives be it only when we wear a LBD.
LBD suits every body type
The simplicity of the LBD makes it a dress which can suits any body type. Whether you have an hourglass body shape, a pear-shaped body, an inverted triangle body shape, a rectangle-shaped body or an apple-shaped body, it does not matter. The LBD suits any figure type.
If you have an hourglass-shaped body or a pear-shaped body, the LBD with a V-neckline suits you perfectly. The LBD dress with a wrap gathering on the front looks stunning on women who have an apple-shaped body. Women who have an inverted triangle body shape should opt for the LBD with an asymmetrical neckline. If you have a rectangle body shape, you can wear any LBD, just add a chic red belt to it.
The LBD is truly a classic and timeless dress. With a host of ways to customize your look, the LBD established itself on the fashion throne and I am sure it will not be dethroned easily any time soon. All women around the world love this dress for its two fundamental features: simplicity and versatility. And to accomplish simplicity and versatility at the same time is not easy, you must admit.
Finally, we can say that the LBD has an enormous power in fashion. I will round off this article with a quote by Karl Lagerfeld: “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress.”
