A classic trend never goes out of style. Start by investing on a Little Black Dress or a basic white t-shirt. The one thing we all know about LBD is that it’s Timeless. It’s in – nothing more nothing less. One can easily add and own it into their life. Rule of fashion, every woman should own a simple, elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. As designer Norma Kamali says, “Take us to parties, job interviews, weddings and funerals. We experience all of life’s big events in the little black dress. It can be respectful or empowering, depending upon the design.” The LBD gives us a chameleon-like ability to fit into any kind of social circumstances, and therein lies its appeal.
I picked up this black bodycon dress from French Connection Autumn Winter ’14 collection. The moment I laid my eyes on it, all I could think was Coco Chanel which essentially connected me to Audrey Hepburn. Who would forget her exquisite LBD designed by Hubert de Givenchy in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”; it symbolizes the epitome of chic, a film that has influenced fashion more than most.
Let’s say, the quintessential LBD is here to stay. It’s effortless, chic, timeless, iconic, and versatile and suits everyone.
Remember, first you must build your Basic Classic Wardrobe… Then you can add current trends into your life!
