From Audrey Hepburn’s iconic Givenchy dress in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Princess Diana’s famous Kensington Gardens silk dress to Taylor Swift currently rocking a sparkling Versace blazer style dress on The Eras Tour, there is one dress style that holds the test of time in all its elegance and versatility. We are talking about the timeless, terrific Little Black Dress (LBD if you will).

La petit noire in French, the “Little Black Dress” is the statement dress. Charming and chic, “the black dress is considered one of the most timeless items you can have in your wardrobe, and has a storied fashion legacy…” as Vogue puts it. Some fashion historians credit Coco Chanel’s 1920s designs as the beginnings of the iconic LBD. Since then, the evolution of this look through time can be traced through designers across the world that have crafted their own unique interpretations of the LBD.

“One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a little black dress.”

Karl Lagerfeld

Enduring the true test of time, the LBD has become a fashionable outfit classic. A look that can work for every season, the LBD is versatile and effortless. The rules are simple, a sleek, black dress. From there, mini, midi, or maxi, any fabric goes, the options are pretty limitless. This look is oh so vogue. The best part of the LBD is the freedom to style it to match your tastes, minimalist or maximalist, danceable and comfortable, or totally red carpet ready. You can always count on the Little Black Dress.

Channeling all of our Audrey Hepburn daydreams, the LBD is charming and remains a classic in fashion everywhere. Vogue peeped the look into 2023 runways. “…there is no denying that designers have been revisiting the allure of the little black dress for the fall 2023 season. The likes of Ferragamo, Givenchy, and Versace all presented a line-up of black dresses, exploring the idea of elegance via classic evening wear.”

“Here’s to chasing your dreams in your favorite dress….”


You can rock the LBD in abundantly wonderful ways. It is a lovely addition to any fashionista’s capsule wardrobe. The best part of this look is that the LBD matches everything. “Switching up your accessories makes it feel different for each wear,” Vogue suggests. Mixing and matching your LBD with your favorite details is a great way to maximize wear and create so many outfits with one iconic base.

Match with your besties or have fun styling your dress all on your own. Special accessories, jewelry, shoes, hairstyles, and outfit details can transform even the most simple black dress into a full ensemble. It’s easy to look like you walked off the page of a magazine with this style. Easy sophistication, confidence, and elegance. The LBD is a go-to fashion look!

“Life is a Party, dress like it.”
