Little Black Dress

Is there any style more quintessential than the little black dress? Like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Kate Moss striking a pose on the red carpet, the little black dress has had more iconic fashion moments than we can count. So, we’re here to break down all the benefits of the color black and what makes a simple black dress such a showstopper.

Why Is the Color Black So Stylish?

All you need to do is peep the streets of NYC or Paris to know that black is the go-to color for fashion. So, what is it about this minimalist hue that draws the eye of celebs and stylists the world over? Simply put, it’s a power color. Bold but subdued, powerful but not overpowering, black is the color you can rely on to always look elegant. Plus, it looks amazing on everyone—perfectly highlighting every skin tone and eye color. Have you ever noticed how sophisticated you feel the minute you slip on a black blouse or cocktail dress? And don’t even get us started on the confidence-boosting effects of a tailored black pantsuit.

Why Is the Little Black Dress Still a Style Staple?

Although Coco Chanel popularized the little black dress back in the 1920s, they are still considered a fashion staple due to their versatility and ability to evolve with the times. From sheath dresses with simple boat necklines to flowy chiffon midi dresses with sheer details and asymmetrical necklines, the adaptability of the little black dress continues to inspire the world’s greatest designers.

How Should I Accessorize a Little Black Dress?

Probably one of the most exciting parts about wearing a little black dress is the fact that it literally is a blank canvas waiting to be accentuated. It’s often why you’ll see so many artists and creative types wearing black. It gives them the opportunity to personalize the look with bold accessories like a chic fedora or an intricately beaded clutch or evening bag. Little black dresses can be as casual or as dressy as you want them to be. Plus, one look can easily be worn two ways. For example, a little black tank dress looks great with sneakers by day, but can easily transition to night with some bolder makeup and a pair of heels.
