Style Watch: No Wardrobe Is Complete Without A Little Black Dress


The ultimate symbol of womanhood, the little black dress or LBD is a worthy wardrobe investment.

A little black dress is a black evening or cocktail dress, cut simply and often quite short. Fashion Historians ascribe the origins of the little black dress to the 1920s designs of Coco Chanel and Jean Patou intended to be long-lasting, versatile and affordable.

As a rule of fashion, the little black dress is considered to be a wardrobe essential by many women and fashion observers.

Every girl needs the perfect little black dress in her closet, whether you are going on a hot date, black tie/semi- formal event elegant black dresses can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

The little black dress is meant to be a staple of the wardrobe for a number of years.
