In short, women’s little black dresses are simply evening dresses or cocktail dresses which are cut relatively short. It is believe that the heritage of this iconic dress design originates back to the 1920’s designs of Coco Chanel, which were intended to be durable, versatile, affordable and available to a mass market in a neutral colour. Being so globally renowned, women’s little black dresses are often simply referred to as ‘LBDs’.
Both then and now, little black dresses have been considered to be a wardrobe essential for any connoisseur of fashion as many people believe it to be a ‘rule of fashion’ that every women should own a simple, yet elegant black dress which can be worn for any occasion. They are considered to be an individual and timeless style in their own right and for many years now have not followed any trends or fashions; to uphold the image each LBD should ideally be designed as simple as possible and not be part of a trend as this would then make it appear dated.
Prior to the date in which LBD’s became a mainstream, mass market product, black was often reserved for periods of mourning and was considered to be inappropriate to be worn outside of those identified circumstances. It was until 1926, when Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel published a picture of a short, simple black dress in American Vogue that it became more commonly accepted as a piece of fashion attire and not something that would be forever associated with death and periods of slum and depression. Women’s little black dresses were then seen as more of a sophisticated and chic fashion and were then described as ‘Chanel’s Ford’ - with reference to the Model T, the car which was available to the mass market. Vogue had also referred to the LBD as a uniform to suit all different women’s tastes.
