So I know you’ve probably heard this a million times… but I’m going to say it again… EVERY GIRL NEEDS A LBD!!!
I’ve briefly touched on the “importance” of a LBD in one of my previous posts (A designers mannequin) but I guess one paragraph is just not enough. Believe it or not, there’s some that doesn’t know what “LBD” stands for so now I’m going to sew together my blogpost on my thoughts and views on a little black dress.
Black is just that one colour that one can never go wrong with, be it male or female and nothing says “LOOK AT ME NOW” better than a little statement piece that doesn’t only make you stand out from the crowd but also shows your curves in all the right places.
I absolutely love black and I always mix it up with some bright colours and awesome accessories to give my outfit that extra sparkle without me looking goth like.
LBD’s comes in all designs and lengths and it doesn’t matter if you’re dressing it up for a corporate function, a social cocktail do or even just a night out on the town with your girls.
Way back in 1926, Coco Chanel introduced the concept behind “The little black dress” and decades later this is still the answer to many women’s question ‘what to wear?’. Fashion comes and fashion goes but the little black dress is the only item, along with a good pair of jeans that will never go outdated.
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” ― Coco Chanel
At the 2012 Grammy Awards, LBD’s were all over the red carpet, and the leading ladies that rocked their red dresses in a variety of styles, such as Adele wearing a three quarter length sleeved dress, covered in black sequins and clinched in at the waist by a black grosgrain panel on the front, were definitely the stars of the evening, not only looking gorgeous but also scooping up all those awards.
As merely an idea, the little black dress has gone on to represent the height of chicness , to being a staple in women’s closets be it the rich and famous to the ordinary working girl. Black dresses are the only garment where style, size and price holds no limit, whether you’re a size 8 or an 18, wearing a dress from Mr Price or a designer dress from Gavin Rajah… we all need a LBD!
