Style on a Budget: Little Black Dress

April 3, 2013 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

“I imposed black; it’s still going strong today, for black wipes out everything else around.” Coco Chanel

Thanks to Chanel, the little black dress has been a requirement of every woman’s wardrobe since 1926, when Vogue published on of Coco Chanel’s fashion drawings and predicted that it would “become a uniform.” (Picardy) She may not have invented the idea, but I think we can all agree that she perfected it. The LBD is usually a simple sheath dress, like CoCo’s original, but any knee-length or shorter, simple black dress will do. The simplicity of the dress allows for it to take you anywhere, depending on the cut of the dress and how you accessorize. Below I’ve utilized Polyvore.com to show and example of how to accessorize the same LBD for going out on the town and for work. All items are priced below $50. I’ve also thrown in an extra style, because we all know that the LBD is perfect for date night. You can go super sexy, or cute and modest. Have fun ladies, and make sure that you have at least one Little Black Dress!
