LBD stands for Little Black Dress and it is not just another trendy peace of black fabric. It is a symbol of the democratization of fashion back in the 1920s. We owe it to Coco Chanel and it was revolutionary because back colour was reserved for funerals and mourning.
However, it became so popular because its simplicity and short length allowed every woman to look sophisticated. Karl Lagerfeld precisely described it by saying that “one is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress”.
Apart from that, the LBD was affordable, which made its popularity even grow during the Great Depression, and the most used on cameras recording scenes for the cinema because colourful clothing would appear distorted on camera.
On top of that, it is important to mention the terrifying numbers of litres used for producing fashionable low-cost and low-quality clothes so wearing this eternal basic is also a sustainable way of getting dressed.
Having stated the numerous strengths of the little black dress, let´s see now some of the best accessories to wear it with:
1. A green hat.
2. Bright-colour bag
You can wear total black and just add this woollen hat to keep yourself warm and trendy. You can find it nearly everywhere this season.
3. Black platform boots
Coming back to basics, Dr. Martens are a must in all seasons. You can wear the classic ones or go for the zip version.
4. Burberry trench coat
Another garment that will never get outdated. Choose your favourite and wear it forever.
5. Do not forget your scent
Because it is not only what we see that matters, you will also be reminded for your fragrance you use so make sure it is a nice one. Thierry Mugler never disappoints and the new version of the classic Alien: Alien Goddess is a safe bet.
