LBD Coco Chanel

As you can imagine, Coco Chanel was the pioneer, creating in the 1920s, the little black dress that has become the uniform of every stylish woman since then. Here are three LBD Coco Chanel herself would have loved if she were alive today.

LBD Audrey Hepburn

Hubert de Givenchy famously dressed the actress Audrey Hepburn in most of her films. Hepburn wore the iconic little black dress by Givenchy paired with rows of pearls in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, epitomising the chicness of the neutral black garment. You can get Audrey Hepburn’s look with any of these beautiful pieces here below.

The revenge dress

Who can ever forget Princess Diana’s revenge dress? While her ex-husband was on TV talking about his extra-marital affair, Princess Di showed up at the Serpentine Gallery party looking drop-dead-gorgeous in a sexy little black dress. As a result, she was on the front page of every newspaper the following day, stealing Prince Charles’ spotlight! Get all eyes on you with these Diana-style dresses.

Why do we love a LBD?

First of all, black looks chic. Secondly, it is flattering and slimming. Third, black is a neutral colour that goes well with literally everything. And finally, you can wear your little black dress in a million different ways just by changing the accessories. In fact, you can turn the same LBD from elegant to edgy in an instant!

Today’s LBD comes in all types of styles and different materials like leather or faux-leather. You can wear them paired with chunky ankle boots or sneakers for a younger and more informal look. But add heels and statement necklaces and you’re ready to party!
