It doesn’t matter your style, everyone has their own little black dress — the garment you have for any and all occasions [you can dress it up, or down], but when did this “little black dress” phenomenon all begin? Before the 20s, the color black was used purely for funerals but this all changed in 1926 when Chanel published a short, simple little black dress in Vogue. The magazine loved her idea and in fact called it “Chanel’s Ford”, referring to the Model T — it was easy, simple, and accessible; a perfect uniform for all women with a sense of fashion. The trend quickly spread because first and foremost it is neutral, most people can pull off and feel comfortable wearing black. Through time the “little black dress” has been an icon for numerous celebrities including – Audrey Hepburn, Wallis Simpson, and Edith Piaf. It doesn’t stop there, over the years there has even been songs written about the dress; “Little Black Dress” – Shock Treatment, ‘Little Black Dress” -Gavin Friday, and “Little Black Dress” -Chris Young.
