Lovely Classics: The Little Black Dress

 

Hello Lovelies,

In fashion there are certain rules that can be defined as cardinal rules.

Rules that surpass trends and eras, because they are fundamentally classic.

One such rule is the eternal elegance of Little Black Dress, popularized by Mademoiselle Coco Chanel herself, in a 1926 Vogue article.

So as we head into the holiday season, let us get a refresher on the basics shall we and honor the iconic Little Black Dress, aka the LBD.
