Little Black Dresses - Part 1

Little Black Dress. Reading this word must have brought some black dress to your mind. And why not? This term tops all the fashion trends even today. 

Little Black Dress has an intriguing history. It became popular after World War II when women of that era wanted to dress more sophisticatedly and elegantly. Popularized by Vogue and designed by Coco Chanel, Little Black Dress became a sensation among women when it was featured in the 1900s. That Little Black Dress embraced the curves of the American actress Greta Garbo. 

Eminently abbreviated as the "LBD," it has long been considered an iconic classic and a closet staple for many, including celebrities. It is credited with being one of the most versatile pieces of clothing that can be worn on almost any occasion without looking like a misfit. LBD made the color black the standard fashionable color and gave rise to the phrase “... is the new black.” The best feature of an LBD is that it can be dressed up or down, making it a versatile go-to outfit for any occasion and look flattering on various body types. 

To flaunt your curves, it's essential to understand your body shape and select a little black dress accordingly. For slender body shapes, a tight-fitting dress will do the magic. It’ll show off your curves and make you look taller. Whereas for a plus-sized body, you will want to choose a loose-fitting dress with a lot of fabric. 

With that said, let’s look at 5 mesmerizing Little Black Dresses that’ll do the magic for you.
