We've been talking about styles that stick here at Styledash, and have covered a range of styles that have endured (sometimes longer than necessary) for whatever reason. However, when I think of classic styles, one thing is so salient that it's hard to believe we haven't mentioned it yet.
The little black dress.
There's a whole history surrounding the little black dress, with differing opinions about when and where it began its status as a style icon. In my mind, however, the little black dress, or LBD, started with Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. The simple sleeveless black shift is the one that started a timeless trend of dresses that eventually enveloped a whole wardrobe of different styles and shapes, but in the end, are all little, and all black.
Clearly, the reason that the little black dress is a classic piece in any woman's wardrobe is two-fold. On the one hand, the LBD is the ultimate in versatility. A woman can get pretty far with a fairly basic LBD. My favorite is a black tank minidress that can take on all sort of accessories to go from work to cocktails to dinner to the club.
On the other hand, you can never have too many LBDs!
