No woman’s wardrobe is complete without the addition of a Little Black Dress, which is arguably the most important dress design of all time. The little black dress, or LBD is a timeless style staple which has enjoyed popularity ever since acclaimed designer Coco Chanel debuted it in 1926.
A little black dress is not only a necessity for your everyday wardrobe, but also for your travel one. Trends come and go, but the little black dress continues to remain in our closets, and here’s why:
The little black dress was designed to adapt to all functions and occasions, and there is literally one for every body shape out there. With such a large variation in styles, it’s really not hard to find a dress that fits you well, is the perfect length for your figure, and allows you to express your personality.
For example, why not be bold and match a lace design with a comfortable jersey dress such as the Hallie Dress from Anatomie?
Most women will want to include at least one fancier outfit in their travel wardrobe. Either for a night on the town, a special occasion, or because you just want to dress up and feel feminine. And one of the best things about owning a little black dress is its versatility, there are so many ways in which you can wear it.
You can dress up your little black dress for a night out with a pair of comfortable wedge heels, an oversized clutch, statement jewelry and either a classic blazer, or a leather jacket to add a little edge to your look.
Or you can forget the leather jacket entirely and opt for a design such as the Milan Dress, which incorporates leatherlambskin into the dress for a super modern finish.
You can also dress your little black dress down. Just simply wear it the way it is, with a pair of comfortable ballet flats or your favorite walking shoes to enjoy your daily European city excursions.
Just remember one of Karl Lagerfeld’s famous quotes: “One is never over or underdressed with a little black dress.”
