Fashion Flashback: The LBD

Whether you wear it to breakfast at Tiffany’s or style it like Halle or Herve, the little  black dress (LBD) is every woman’s best friend.  Versatile and effortlessly chic, this wardrobe must-have is available in a variety of fabrics and silhouettes.  Find the one that works best for your physique and lifestyle, dress it up or down, rock a sheath or dare to be bare in a strapless version, but make sure you own at least one!  Before the Roaring 20s, black was considered appropriate only for mourning, and came to be associated with fallen or dangerous women when worn outside those circumstances.  Coco Chanel turned it into an aspirational uniform, and today it is always appropriate: with a few adjustments an LBD can take you from the office to cocktails to…well, just about anywhere.
