The Little Black Dress, a rule of fashion

Hey ladies,

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!

Streetglams - LBD Coco Chanel

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:

  • anytime
  • anywhere
  • for any occasion
  • customizing it in any way you want

… As long as you feel confident, styled and glamorous!

But now let’s talk seriously! Having a little black dress, ok, that’s a given. But now, which one? There are countless choices! You just have to find the one — or many ones 😉 — that fits your style and your silhouette best. To help you in this crucial decision, here is a list of our friendly suggestions.

Skater dresses are the ones that are narrower at the top and that get wider towards the bottom. They are easy to wear, with short or long sleeves. They can easily transition from day to night situations if needed. Match them with a pair of high heels, jewelry, a touch of lipstick, and you’ll be ready for that cocktail evening in no time!
