The LBD: 7 Little Black Dresses for Every Occasion

The Little Black Dress – The little black dress is often credited to Chanel founder, Coco Chanel, dating back to 1926. The concept was radical at the time since black was considered a color for mourning rather than for fashion. And then the 1930s saw the color black being seen as chic in fashion. Now, the piece has gone on to become a staple in almost every woman’s closet. A classic sheath dress like the one worn by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast in Tiffany’s or something more modern like a ace-adorned dress is the great way to go and can be accessorized almost endlessly.
