typically the little black dress gets all of the attention. it’s classic, it’s versatile, and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. the silhouette may change from year to year but it reigns supreme as the quintessential style uniform. the lbd was first introduced in 1926 by coco chanel. it was nicknamed the “model t” or “chanel’s ford” because the dress was accessible for women of all social classes.
