When Coco Chanel introduced the notion of ‘The Little Black Dress,’ she started a much-needed fashion revolution:
“What she invented is more a ‘principe’, an idea, the fact that a dress can be used in different situations and can be changed by the addition of accessories,” said Paris-based fashion historian, teacher and author Florence Muller.
(Visit TheAge.com for the full article on the LBD.) Until the 1920′s, women had to wear heavy, decorative clothes that they often needed help with putting on and would change frequently for different occasions throughout the day. Imagine having to do that today!
The Little Black Dress is usually something:
1) Simple, so you can be flexible with the type of jewelry and accessories.
2) Timeless, so you can wear it in and out of every season.
3) Shorter in length, so you can dress it up or down.
So here’s a little question for you.
How do you like to glam up your little black dress?
With classy crystal jewelry? Silver? Gold? Black? Bronze? Copper? A pair of rebellious white boots like the model pictured above? With a pop of color? Or just simple and monochromatic?
