Daring or demure, chic or casual, no other garment matches the classic little black dress in elegance and versatility. From the boardroom to the red carpet, no woman’s wardrobe is complete without at least one LBD. The little black dress is a wardrobe staple that we often take for granted, but the ease and reliability of the garment is what makes it so perfect. Influential designer Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of the legendary Chanel fashion empire said, “One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress.” So true!
Far from boring, the LBD does not overpower the wearer but allows a woman’s unique beauty to shine. When you walk into a room wearing a well-tailored little black dress, people notice YOU and then the dress. Think of the LBD as a canvas that can be enhanced with your favorite accessories such as a timeless strand of pearls, a dramatic chunky necklace or a brightly-colored pair of sky-high heels. Keep a little black dress at the office and pack one in your luggage when you travel and you will always be stylishly prepared for any last-minute invitations. Go ahead and conquer the world in your favorite little black dress—you’ll be chic, you’ll be confident and best of all, you’ll be unmistakably you!
