Have you heard about that rule of fashion “every woman should own a simple and elegant black dress”?
Yes, I’m talking about the Little Black Dress, that essential piece of clothing every woman should have in her wardrobe or boudoir. Don’t tell us that you don’t have one… Because we at Streetglams won’t believe you!
For your general knowledge, the Little Black Dress — or LBD as fashion lovers call it — became ubiquitous in the 1920’s thanks to Coco Chanel. Hector, our Creative director, already mentioned Coco Chanel’s heritage in a previous article: I suggest you to have a look at it.
The advantage of having a Little Black Dress is that you can wear it:
- for any occasion
- customizing it in any way you want
… As long as you feel confident, styled and glamorous!
