The Classic LBD

If there is one look that every woman needs in her closet, the little black dress - or LBD as it’s affectionately known - is it.

Simple, chic, and to the point, a little black dress is the solution to any dressing problem that presents itself. Got a date immediately following your work day? Reach for your tried-and-true LBD. Headed to a semi-formal wedding? Your LBD is always down to be a plus-one.

The little black dress became firmly rooted in fashion history beginning in 1926 with Coco Chanel. The designer aimed to take the high-fashion French look and make it versatile, affordable, and attainable for all. Over the decades, the LBD has risen from fashion staple to fashion icon on several occasions. From Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Princess
Di’s revenge dress, it’s easy to see why this seemingly simple dress has earned its place as a must-have.

Don’t let the description fool you - a little black dress is rarely so simple. Finding the best little black dress is about matching your style personality with a timeless look. When you’re on the hunt for the perfect LBD, consider all of the fine details.

For the Classic Woman

If you’re all about versatility and timeless wear, a classic little black dress is the perfect choice. Opt for a silhouette like an A-Line or shift dress, and skip flashy details. A simple little black dress will allow you more control over dressing up or down with accessories and will look beautiful for years to come.
