'One is never overdressed or underdressed in a little black dress',
It all started when Coco Chanel drew a legendary ink drawing showcased in Vogue in 1926; the little black dress, or LBD, was born. From the monochromatic depression era, to Hepburn's legendary dress in 'Breakfast At Tiffany's', I wonder if Coco knew that drawing would change the face of fashion for the next 90 years?
It is one of the only fashion pieces that can be described as timeless. Every woman either has or needs one in her wardrobe. This garment is a piece of magic transcendence that has the power to be suitable for every occasion.
From quirky and colourful, to a classic Hepburn look, here are my five favourite ways to style my LBD (LBD From H & M):
Evidence that an LBD can be worn on warm summer days. I injected some casual appeal with a crochet vest and carried this air of romanticism forward with the hat adorned with a flower crown.
Flower Crown: Lovisa
Vest: New Look
The little black dress makes a perfect base layer to add upon on cooler days. I decided to keep it 100% classic by adding a timeless trench coat and a vintage silk scarf.
