Little black dress: the timeless dress

Little black dress Not Only twenty

In today’s post I want to talk about the little black dress.

Designed by Coco Chanel in 1926, the LBD has become a milestone in fashion history and, with various reinterpretations, continues to be one of the most popular clothing items of women.

Who doesn’t have a little black dress in the closet?

If you are among 10% of women who don’t own one, go immediately to fill the gap by taking advantage of summer sales, as I had already suggested in the post  Summer sale 2017: what to buy.

Who can wear a little black dress

The LBD in its simplicity is very elegant and can be worn both day and evening, although with its pretty adherent line, the various types of neckline and the various and possible horns make it an item easily wearable by any kind of  body: from lean to curvy woman.

What makes the LBD a dress to have in your wardrobe?

The fact that it is always fashionable:  you will be able to wear the LBD  you will buy today, without problems even in the coming years.

How to wear a LBD

What I propose you today is by Blumarine. Bought a few years ago it is a bit more difficult to wear for transparent  lace at the bottom of the dress.

It is possible to overcome the problem by covering the transparent part, but it is worth buying a different one.

Being an elegant dress it cannot be worn with flat shoes unless you want to play it down with sneakers (but in this case the length cannot be at the knee, but abundantly below). The ideal shoes for the LBD are  décolleté or sandals with  high heel.

Even the bag cannot be a shopping, but a small hand bag or a clutch bag.

I’ve put on a long necklace with dark stones, but you can choose the one you like, long or short. Perfect are pearls that make so much Chanel style, but they make the outfit very formal.

You can also opt for a pair of earrings instead of the necklace, leaving  that the simplicity of the dress determine its beauty.
