Wardrobe Basic-The LBD/Little Black Dress!

Coco Chanel-the LBD Birthmother!

Coco Chanel-the LBD Birthmother!

Blame it on Coco-the originator of the LBD-possibly the best invention in fashion… EVER!!!

 The “little black dress” is considered “THE” wardrobe essential. Coco Chanel originally designed the LBD in 1926 as a dress that was functional yet chic, wouldn’t show stains and would fit every woman. American Vogue referred to the LBD as the “Ford of Fashion”in reference to Henry Ford’s Model T. Needless to say this is one wardrobe item that has certainly stood the test of time.

The LBD is still the one item that every woman must own. Here are a few tips if you buy only one… (If that’s even possible)….:

 The LBD Guidelines 

•1.     Purchase the simplest of styles when it comes to the LBD.  The less detail aka, ruffles, pleating, puckering etc. the better. KEEP IT SIMPLE!

•2.     Buy the best fabrication you can possibly afford. Crepe is great. So is lightweight wool. Cotton with a hint of spandex helps define shape but avoid any fabric that wrinkles.

•3.     Look for a perfect fit. Make sure it doesn’t pull at the bust, waist hip or underarm. If it does- go up a size and have it altered.

•4.     The perfect length for most women is at or just above the knee. You don’t want a dress to hit mid-calf unless you’re over 6 feet and want to look shorter or heavier. Is there anyone that wants that? I think not. (O.K. maybe Giselle Buncheon but she is a freak of nature because she is so beautiful and that doesn’t count.)

5.    In choosing a simple black dress rest assured that you can dress it up or down with your choice of shoes, stockings, or accessories…the whole aim of the LBD- is to be versatile…yet chic.

6.    Thank Coco!
