The Little Black Dress. I have so many things to say about this staple that I don’t even know where to begin! When I think Little Black Dress, I can’t help but think of Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Does this dress ring a bell?
As memorable as it is, in my opinion, this wasn’t THE Little Black Dress. My choice for her Little Black Dress was very similar to this one:
Audrey wears this dress 3 different times in the movie….
As you can see, all they did was change her accessories. A hat here, a belt there…and voila! It honestly looks like 3 completely different dresses. That, to me, is the whole point of the Little Black Dress. It is VERSATILE. It can be dressed up, down, left, right…you get the point. Your Little Black Dress is a blank canvas, waiting for you to color it with your mood. Choose one that you feel amazing in, that has a detail that you love, but doesn’t overwhelm. YOU make the dress.
Just to give you an idea of the versatility of a simple little black dress (and I haven’t even played with jackets, scarves, gloves, etc.!)
