Watch: The History of the Little Black Dress

Why is the little black dress considered a staple in fashion?

Ever since we were little girls, we’ve learned the importance of basics in our wardrobe. There is nothing more basic than the little black dress and is considered a must-have for every fashionista. It can be dressed up with heels and pearls or dressed down with flats and a cardigan. And it is the quintessential staple for every season.

It also seems that the little black dress is able to do what many politicians can’t. It can cross racial, cultural, and economic lines. Whether you are wealthy or not, you probably have a little black dress in your closet, and it doesn’t matter if you are Caucasian, African American, Asian, or Latino, you probably own one.

Another way the little black dress unifies us all is that it crosses age barriers. This is not a dress that will only suit millennials or older women. You, your mother, and probably even your grandmother own one. Why? Because it makes everyone look so chic, stylish, and trim!

It’s simplicity at its finest and it doesn’t have to be terribly expensive. But it can be. The lines on this dress are usually simple and understated. This way, it can be anything you want it to be. With the help of accessories, you can make it festive, somber, or flirty.  You can also wear it to the office and command authority.

So take a journey along with us as we learn about the history of the little black dress. Everyone who was anyone has paid homage to it including Audrey Hepburn, Coco Chanel, and Marilyn Monroe.  They understood that regardless of a woman’s size or shape, she looked better when in her little black dress. And because she looked good, she felt even better! So come and celebrate what is perhaps the most iconic dress fashion has ever produced!
