Wardrobe Hero: The Little Black Dress

Sexy, chic and slimming…long live the LBD! First heralded as the future of figure-flattering fashion way back in the 1920s, the Little Black Dress has become a must-have item for style-savvy ladies the world over.

What started as a sketch of a simple yet elegant, black, long sleeve dress by none other than Coco Chanel, has become a  century-long obsession with the LBD.  At the time, Vogue predicted that the style would become a uniform for fashion conscious females; a forecast which proved entirely accurate. But, with the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe advocating the look, it’s hardly surprising that the LBD became (and remains) such a firm wardrobe favourite.

One LBD. Three ways to wear.
